about

For singer-songwriter Marten de Paepe being a musician isn’t about sex, drugs & rock ‘n roll. It’s about hard work. Het likes to retrieve for days, only with his guitars and a cassette deck. Coffee, cigarettes & tangerines.

Marten sings about daily life and things everyone can sympathize with, for example his morning moods, lost friendships or driving around in his car. His folky style of playing is hard to compare with that of others. Here and there, Marten winks at the heroes from his youth. Neil Young and Nick Drake are never far away.

Frans Hagenaars recorded the album and produced it in Studio Sound Enterprise.
The album is released will be released by V2 Records on September 12th.
Marten de Paepe will play his new album for the first time with his band in Ekko, Utrecht on September 10th.

Track Name: What you need this silence for
Four in the morning I’m stumbling to my bed
What you need this silence for
Four hours later the city’s waking up
What do they all keep fighting for

All I do and all I can
When no-one answers and no-one cares
What you need this silence for

Close down the evening, won’t you shut your eyes
What you see is what you get
Gone with the daylight, was it really there
I’ll see you in the night somewhere

All I do and all I can
When no-one answers and no-one cares
What you need this silence for

Hope that I won’t see any violent dreams
No-one here will follow me
In case I’m not who you thought I was
I’m very sorry and wish you luck
What you need this silence for

What you see is what you get
What is it you keep staring at

All I do and all I can
When no-one answers and no-one cares
It’s a dream I had, I was all alone
All I once saw was simply gone

What you need this silence for
Track Name: Boskoop
Sing on ‘till you’re winning, never mind the loss
When no-one hears a word you say, just say it anyway
Get up on that stage tonight just to step into the light

I’ve been driving on for hours though I couldn’t pay the rent
I spent it all on gasoline just to end up home again
I didn’t read the new today, but still I’ll make my way

Oh, although the road is long
I’ll be driving on

Last night in the greenhouse on a cold September night
To wait for five long hours and the music wasn’t right
I brought the band along with me; they got stuck in all the ditches along the way

Oh, although the road is long
I’ll be drivin’ on

Tell me am I doing right, no-one seems to wonder where I go
Nothing’s on the radio, trees go by but I can’t see the wood

Oh, although the road is long
I’ll be drivin’ on

I sang to all the people, some of them were drunk
Some just couldn’t stand it, some were way too young
But some will buy the record, dear, and they’ll sing it all along

Oh, although the road is long
I’ll be driving’ on
Track Name: In the morning
You didn’t see me much today
You didn’t see me yesterday
We talked about three days ago
You keep your eyes on the telephone

I won’t be home tomorrow night
Guess I’ll see you in the morning light

Oh why I treat you so mean in the morning
Oh why I treat you so mean in the morning

Through the paper and back again
I haven’t said this much ever since
I saw you first and you called me mine
Don’t know where I’ve been all this time

I’m in a bar you’d like to hold me tight
I won’t be home until the morning light

Oh why I treat you so mean in the morning
Oh why I treat you so mean in the morning

So girls, girls, please don’t be mean
There ain’t a man to blame for all that he can’t be
So don’t count the days passed by
And don’t be fooled by the morning light

Promised that I’ll pay it all back one day
They say it’s better just to give it all away

Oh why I treat you so mean in the morning
Oh why I treat you so mean in the morning
In the morning
In the morning
Track Name: Go in circles
Go west, go east, you will find no peace
Go south, go north, I don’t know what it’s for
But I will go in circles, I will go in circles
And you will follow me

No friends, no foes will bring me down no more
In spring or fall or in between two walls
I will keep on searching, I will keep on searching
For they will hear me call

‘Cause I will go now, I’d better go real fast
Simply go now, there’s no time to rest

Go west, go east, you will find no peace
Go home, drive off, I don’t remember where it was
I will keep on searching, I will keep on searching
No matter what

‘Cause I will go now, I’d better go real fast
Simply go now, there’s no time to rest

‘Cause I will go now, I’d better go real fast
Simply go now, you’re coming home at last
When I go now to get it off my chest
Simply go now, there’s no time to rest
Track Name: In your dreams
Waiting for the light to come
Waiting for the light to come
Wake up in the morning sun

Hey I’m but a full grown man
Hey I’m but a full grown man
Won’t you tell me who I am

Papa pa papa, papa pa papa, pa

Waiting for another chance
Waiting for another chance
Waiting for the final dance

Just to know her is so fine
I should not call her mine
Papa pa papa, papa pa papa, pa

People having too much fun
People having too much fun
They don’t know what’s going on

But I am just a selfish guy
I am just a selfish guy
Telling you the reason why

Just to know her is so fine
I should not call her mine
Papa pa papa, papa pa papa, pa

When the sun is burning and the shades are cold
People let me tell you it ain’t my fault
But I’m a simple mind, don’t wanna be unkind
One of these mornings I’m gonna make it all right

Papa pa papa, papa pa papa, pa

Waiting for the light to come
Waiting for the light to come
Wake up in the morning sun
Track Name: Island in the sea
Asked you for a dime
Then you came with all this silver
Asked you to be quite
Then you wrote a poem for me

I believe I’d rather be mistaken
I’d pay you back if you’d not write a note for me

Came home with diamonds
You’d been working like a dog
Came home a fine, fine man
Kept it all from you

I believe I know for sure I told her
I believe that I am short of love

If you’d rather be
An island in the sea
Where you’d like to be
Just take me home to sleep, take me home

Some are sweet, some are sour
Some ain’t told within an hour
Some are sweet, some are sweet
Some are sweet, some are sour
Some ain’t told within an hour

Asked you for a dime
Then you came with all this silver
Asked you to be quite
Then you wrote a poem for me
Track Name: Perfect man
We started out all right to end up in a fight
Though it ain’t really me such a perfect man I’d be
When the road ahead is rough I’ll stop when you had enough
I’ll never make fun of you no more, I’ll make you feel adored

Oh, such a perfect man I’d be

I’ll call you every night, I’ll send flowers and kiss goodbye
I’ll go to your parent’s house, I’ll hunt down every mouse
I’m gonna make you see I love you just as deep
As you care for me

Oh, such a perfect man I’d be

You walk away in the rain
Nothing’s changed, I still feel the same
Oh, such a perfect man I’d be

But it won’t help to be the guy you’d like to see in me
Just take me as I am, I’ll try to do the best I can
You’re not the first to say goodbye, I can only see what meets the eye
And when you can’t ever be mad, this ain’t never gonna change and I’ll make you sad

I’m gonna make you see I love you just as deep
As you care for me

Oh, such a perfect man I’d be

Now that we’re okay, nothing really changed
You sent me letters full of regret, I didn’t read a single one of them
Track Name: Used cars
Hang myself from all these city lights
Find my way, a stranger in the night
They all say, oh I’m just too slow
But in my dreams, oh I just don’t know

Found myself in all these hazy bars
Promised I ain’t never gonna drive used cars

They all say I did not lose the fight
They who win can always say they’re right

Found myself in all these fancy bars
Promised I ain’t never gonna drive used cars
And I know it’s alright

Life is short, don’t think too long
Kiss your girl before she’s gone
Find my way a stranger in the night
I’m gonna hang myself from all these city lights

See them faces, oh they’ll make you fall
Don’t mind no strangers, oh they’ll do you wrong
Found myself in all these fancy bars
Promised I ain’t never gonna drive used cars
And I know it’s alright

I’m gonna hang myself from all these city lights
Track Name: In good time
It’s a fighter’s cause to bring them all together
When the stakes are up and he’s gonna raise them
It’s a loser’s loss to end up on his own
To send up one more prayer to the one he loves

Nothing brings me down, I ain’t going back
I’ll make it in good time, don’t be afraid to fall behind

It’s the way I do, I just know I’m gonna break it
But I hope I won’t and I know that I can do something ‘bout it, so please

Nothing brings me down, I ain’t going back
I’ll make it in good time, don’t be afraid to fall behind

Won’t you leave me standing here
For suddenly it might just disappear
Soon as when the sun goes down
I’ll be hours late, but I’ll come around

Will you call or bluff, to put an end to waiting
When the news is on and the economy is failing
It’s the price you pay when you know you’re gonna fake it
When the road is long and the days are rough and all is gone and when you had enough

Nothing brings me down, I ain’t going back
I’ll make it in good time, yes I will take a step
Nothing brings me down, don’t be afraid to fall behind
Track Name: Easy money
Well you came out from the silence
I haven’t seen you all these years
Let’s suppose I never loved you
For I feel alright

You turned me around an made me dizzy
No I won’t tell what I don’t know, well
I don’t suppose you ever loved me
Until the day you fell

I don’t need no easy money I just need a simple truth
I don’t need no easy money I just need a simple truth

All I thought I’d never say now
She told it to me for she wanted to be free
Well I’m sure I’ve always loved you
But I’m sober now

I don’t need no easy money I just need a simple truth

Never saw it all so clear now
Never thought just like I should
I don’t need no easy money I just need a simple truth

I don’t need no easy money I just need a simple truth

Don’t be afraid to lose a memory, they won’t take you where you’d like to be
It’s easy now to go on further now that I can sleep
Track Name: Ship sails in
Used to feel alright, won’t you please leave a light on
Used to feel alright, but the day is done
Used to say out loud what I don’t dare to think of
Once out of time but the time is gone

Used to be alone now there’s all these people on the phone
And I don’t know all the names

Used to be on top, well I know they’ll climb the ladder
The world is looking down and I’m sure I’m not
And the only thing that counts is the way you’ll be remembered
So try to be polite before the ship sails in

Used to be alone now there’s all these people on the phone
And I don’t know all the names

They’ll say that I’ll be fine, but they’ll see me in the window
Busy doing nothing but to scare myself
Used to be alright, but now I’m drifting on a lifeboat
Used to climb aboard, but no ship sails in

Used to be alone now there’s all these people on the phone
And I don’t know all the names
It’s best to ride back home after being too long gone
And they didn’t see me change
Track Name: Shove it all aside
I’ve been smoking on for hours hiding in your bed
I’ve been drinking on my own apart from voices in my head
Do I really like it, sure I’ve got a choice
But there’s no use for choosing when I only raise my voice

Lost my band, lost my friends, we didn’t need to fight
Was it but a trick of faith to shove it all aside

I’m trying to be certain before I make a move
I’ve been thinking on for days by now I should have seen some proof
When she will cross the doorstep I will be at ease
I won’t even try to see what she brought home for me

Lost my band, lost my friends, we didn’t need to fight
Was it but a trick of faith to shove it all aside

I never once did see you, but I never really tried
We’re going to the movies just to spend the night

Lost my band, lost my friends, we didn’t need to fight
Was it but a trick of faith to shove it all aside
Lost my faith in a single day, it’s time to wind it up
Was it but a trick of faith to shove it all aside

No man ever wondered who could break his fall
When he finally made it he would think he lost it all
