about

Cécile Bristol, UK

Bilingual bits of folkie tunes from across the Channel. Now Bristol-based (UK), Cécile released her debut EP "Ten Past Twelve" in 2015, recorded and produced in collaboration with Jack Cookson. Her distinctive vocals, touching melodies and acoustic guitar deliver gentle and honest live performances. If she's not thinking about flapjacks, you can find her busking on the harbourside most sunny days ... more

Track Name: What Goes Around
"Be gentle with yourself" I heard him say from across the city
"Be gentle with yourself" I heard him say from across the country

What goes around comes around, Summer's gone and so am I
What goes around comes around, Summer's gone to another land

I could sing about the Autumn leaves, October rain, cold winds
But it's all been done before - well this is how I feel

What goes around comes around, Summer's gone and so am I
What goes around comes around, Summer's gone to another land

Down by the water I gave what I could give
Down by the harbour I took what I could take
Down by the river I thought I'd never see that haunting fish again but it's drifting back to me

What goes around comes around, Summer's gone and so am I
What goes around comes around, Summer's gone to another land

Be gentle with yourself, the time will come when you'll get what you came for
Track Name: La Dérive
Oh ma belle terre tu t'éloignes déjà
Ou est-ce moi qui dérive là-bas? Si bas
Tu m'as offert des montagnes d'amour
De l'herbe verte et de l'eau tout autour

Le vent du soir réveillait sur nos corps
Les boutons d'or, et le son des guitares
Oh ma demeure tu m'as pris sous ton toit
Ou est-ce moi qui suis venue vers toi?

On a essuyé des tempêtes et des orages,
On s'est foutu des signes, des mauvais présages
Oh ma belle terre tu t'éloignes déjà
Ou est-ce moi qui dérive là-bas?
Track Name: Golden Sand
Old pine trees, dragon land, I'm walking on golden sand
Old pine trees along the road, this is a place I could call home

If you weren't lost in time, if you were here with me
If you weren't lost in time, we'd get our house by the sea

Old pine trees, dragon land, I'm walking on golden sand
The water's washed away my worried mind and thoughts of yesterday

If you weren't lost in time, if you were here with me
If you weren't lost in time, we'd get our house by the sea

So close today, yet a thousand months away
Looking through the eyes of the dragon I can only pretend

We'll go again some day, we'll get there anyway
Track Name: Avalanche
We're all trying, we are
If you were the avalanche I'd be your snow
If you were the avalanche I'd learn to let you grow

We're all hoping, we are
If you were the burning star, I'd be the moon
If you were the burning star, I'd paint your sky navy-blue

We're all searching, we are
I can't help but let the waves come back to me
I can't help but wonder if you'll let them be

We're all trying, we are
If you were the avalanche I'd be your snow
If you were the avalanche I'd learn to let you grow
Track Name: White Bears
Peter was a shy boy
Happy to be hiding and dreaming of the Arctic
Peter was a bright boy
Much brighter than the Summer glow shining on his little town

His wild curly hair dancing in the air as he's walking to the door
His wild curly hair dancing in the air as he's banging on his little sister's door, sayin'

Dada, dadadadada....

Glorious nights over ice
Warming up his growing heart, getting rid off the blizzard
Peter was a bright boy
Much brighter than the Summer glow shining on his little town

His wild curly hair dancing in the air as he's walking to the door
His wild curly hair dancing in the air as he's banging on his little sister's door, singin'

Dada, dadadadada....

Whenever I see him, all I can say
Today will always be tomorrow's yesterday

He's been a brother, a father, he's become a friend
Out of sight, out of mind means nothing to me
If you ever look for him, follow the stars
No doubt you'll find him where the white bears are

Whenever I see him, all I can say
Today will always be tomorrow's yesterday
