THE BAND

Keyboardist and singer Paul J. No and singing drummer Sebastien Bournier have known each other for twenty years. They’ve been playing on one another records for a long time and four years ago they decided to write songs together. Lyrics and musical ideas were exchanged and before they knew it 8 songs were born. Both realised fairly quickly that they needed another soul to cover their weaknesses i.e. guitars, bass and mix. Luckily, Sebastien knew the perfect gem and invited his old friend Jean-Philippe Benadjer to come aboard. Jean-Philippe gladly agreed and contributed beautiful guitars and bass as well as music for two news songs, thus completing the 10 songs of the first Lunear album: Many Miles Away.

THE STORY

THE LYRICS

Closed Doors

Time passes by
Closing the doors before me
Locking them forever
One after the other

There is only one path I can take
There is only one door I can open
And there is no going back

All those different paths
All those different doors
What I could have been
What I could have seen

Time passes by
Closing the doors before me
The doors of the may-be
The doors of the what-if

There's only one that can be taken
There's only one that can be opened
And there's no going back

All those different paths
All those different doors
What I could have been
What I could have seen

Time passes by, closing the doors
Of what I could have been
One closed door, forever a regret
One closed door, forever a frustration

In Between

I’m a ghost
In your life
I’m a ghost
Barely alive

I’m a ghost
In your town
I’m a ghost
Going down

I’m a ghost
By your side
I’m a ghost
Don’t need to hide

In between life and death
In between night and day
In between worlds
In between worlds

I’m a ghost
From dusk til dawn
I’m a ghost
On my own

I’m a ghost
Day and night
I’m a ghost
In dark and light

I’m a ghost
Can’t be seen
I’m a ghost
On the screen

In between joy and sorrow
In between light and shadow
In between worlds
In between worlds

A Last Time For Everything

There will be a day
When I listen to this song
For the last time

There will be a day
When I hold your hands
For the last time

I don’t know when
Because everything has an end
There's a last time for everything

There will be a day
When I play my guitar
For the last time

There will be a day
When I kiss your lips
For the last time

I don’t know when but
Because everything has an end
There's a last time for everything

I won’t even know that
It will be the last time
And it scares the hell out of me,
It terrifies and paralyses me.

There will be a last time I see my friends
There will be a last time I see my moutains
There will be a last time I sing this song
There will be a last time I see your face

I don’t know when
Because everything has an end
There's a last time for everything

I don’t know when
Cause everything has an end
There's a last time for everything

Just Another Song About That Girl

It's just another song about that girl
You've heard her story a thousand times
I'm in love and she is blind
I'm in pain and she is fine

It's just another song about that girl
So many singers have sung these lines
There is nothing new in my song
There is no right, there is no wrong

She's the girl from every single love song ever written
She's the only one for all these broken hearts

It's just another song about that girl
Her story has been told so many times
You've all heard about her
You know all about her

She's the girl from every single love song ever written
She's the only one for all these broken hearts

She's the girl from every single love song ever written
She's the only one for all these broken hearts
She's the girl from every single love song ever written
She's the one that moves on while we suffer

Heaven?

Could you imagine your perfect heaven.
What if you could?
What would it look like?
What would be your best design?

Listening to your favorite music?
Watching your favorite show?
Eating your favorite meal?
Gazing at your favorite landscape?

Forever and ever and ever and ever… forever?

But Heaven is for eternity
And eternity is quite long
So how long before you get bored?
Yes, how long before you get bored?
Bored of your favorite music
Bored of your favorite TV show
Bored of your favorite meal
Bored for your favorite landscape

Bored of your favorite things seems like Hell to me…

The answer is right in front of us
The answer has been there all along
The answer is simply diversity
And diversity is all around us

Heaven is Here
Heaven is Now
Heaven is Home
Heaven is Earth
Heaven is Love
Heaven is Them
Heaven is Life
Heaven is Life
Heaven is Life

Don't Be Scared

Daddy, I'm scared
Fear is everywhere
It's all over the news
Every hour of every day

They say the Earth is dying
They say humankind is doomed
They say the poles are melting
They say there won't be enough food

Don't be scared, don't be afraid
There is hope cos you're here
You just need to take care
Don't listen to them, don't feel guilty
Live your life, be brave and be happy

Daddy, I'm scared
Fear is everywhere
It's all over the news
Every hour of every day

They say war is already here
They say terror is all around
They say people are dying
They say we may be the next ones

Don't be scared, don't be afraid
There is hope cos you're here
You're the future you are tomorrow
Don't listen to them, don't feel guilty
Live your life, be brave and be happy

(I'm so scared... I had a dream... Wake up child!)

They want us to be scared
They want us to believe them
They want us to stand still
They want us to be sheeps

Don't be scared, don't be afraid
There is hope cos you're here
You just need to take care
Switch off your phone and turn off the TV
Enjoy life, be alive and be happy

So... Many...

So…
So you think i’m wrong and you’re right
So…
So you think you can stand up and fight

So...
So you think I’m out for the night
So...
So you think I won't find the light

Many miles away
And no reason to stay
No reason to come back
Many miles from here
And many, many years
Many tears and no fear

So...
So you think you're better than me
So...
So you think I deserve misery
So...
So you think I'm out of control
So...
So you think I can't make the call

Many years from now
You know I'll go down
No reason to look back
Many miles from here
I won't shed a tear
I won't even regret it
Many miles away
There is nothing left to say
Nothing more to give away

Conflagration

Can't breathe at all...
Can't breathe at all...
Can't breathe at all...

Only stairways to go upstairs
No more way leading downstairs
Since this is my only choice
I will run through this thick smoke

I must run and move quickly
Find faith deep inside me
Be careful not to stumble
Cos the floor will soon crumble

I'm burning but I'm climbing
To reach the top of this building
Through those walls of fire and smoke
This must be some kind of bad joke
What will I do once I reach the exit?

Can't see, can't breathe, can't move, can't run

It's getting much harder to move
It's getting much harder to breathe
I keep avoiding those evils flares
I'd rather be in a nightmare

I'm burning but I'm climbing
To reach the top of this building
Through those walls of fire and smoke
This must be some kind of bad joke
What will I do once I reach the exit?

Can't see the point why I'm running
I can't afford to fall asleep
Woke up outside and it was night
With oxygen mask on my mouth
Firemen's sirens roaring around...
Don't know what happened inside
Neither why I'm still alive
I only want to close my eyes
I only want to close my eyes.

You Owe Me Nothing

I've spent the last months
Sharing my life with you
I hope you enjoyed it
As much as I did

I'll be thinking of you
Stay in my memory
I'll be thinking of you
Stay here with me

Just look upon my shoulder,
And you'll find a secure shelter
That's all I have to say
I can do this in my own way

But you owe me nothing
There is no place for gambling
No no no no you owe me nothing

And there is no need to say
I can't stand this delay
If you want me I may
Be so happy to stay

That is why you won't stay
You can leave I won't play
There's no problem for me
Don't mind to be lonely

Just look upon my shoulder,
And you'll find a secure shelter
That's all I have to say
I can do this in my own way

But you owe me nothing
There is no time for hopping
No no no, no you owe me nothing

Fresh Start

Slam the door
Hit the road
Leave everything behind

Change your life
Cut it with a knife
Leave everything behind

Start the engine
Take the win
Leave everything behind

Itís time for a fresh start
Itís time to follow your heart
Everything is not set in stone
Better to be happy but alone

Take your keys
Throw them away
Leave everything behind

Forget the girl
Forget the bad times
Leave everything behind

Itís time for a fresh start
Itís time to follow your heart
Everything is not set in stone
Better to be happy but alone

Start the engine
Take the win
Leave everything behind

Take the win
Leave everything behind
