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

Boskoop 04:44
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

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

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

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

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

Perfect man 04:05
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

Used cars 04:41
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

In good time 03:37
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

Easy money 03:57
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
11.
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

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

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.
