If The Magic Rules (Mikka Grytviken) Here in the classroom I love you baby I look for your eyes In the sunrise You're my fairy tale My adventure, my romance Sometimes you make me smile If the magic rules You will be mine Please take on me Or I die The teenager I'm no more today He's stille your lover I protect my dream My romance is with you In the castle of your dreams Sometimes you make me smile If the magic rules You will be mine Please take on me Or I die In dream I touch your lips Close and pressed to mine I don't feel the weight I give me to you You give you to me Your eyes in my eyes You fill me with joy You can make me your toy Baby I'm your boy To day it's a shame I know what love is When the love came My heart changed in strawberries The blood of my body Became yours by my tears Sometimes you make me cry If the magic rules You will be mine Please take on me Or I die

The French kiss (Mikka Grytviken) She was quiet on the beach Early in the morning She told me she was ou of reach And I wasn't what she was seeking Her words didn't say What her eyes let me look Her lips parted in new day I read her heart as an open book Then I dared the dream Pushing the risk to the extrem Leaving to the charm I took her in my arms And gave her a french kiss Her eyes shone with a strange light Piercing my heart Carrying me in a night flight I couldn't stay apart She was a girl upside down I'd never meet in downtown Seemingly upsetting Such I'm loving Then I dared the dream Pushing the risk to the extrem Leaving to the charm I took her in my arms And gave her a french kiss She was cool on the beach Early in the morning She told me she was out of reach I wasn't what she was seeking But I dared the dream Pushing the risk to the extrem Leaving to the charm I took her in my arms And gave her a french kiss

Night and Day (You and Me) Mikka Grytviken She was looking for an other night and day With me, and I was ok. She came in my room. I felt just like a fool. Oh baby, please comme close to me. It was however not a dream. Today it is only a gleam In the dark loneliness of my life. You haunt my thoughts You pretty little wife. Now I'm waiting for you night and day. Night and day Night and day You and me Please come back to me. So many nights and days together Are just waiting for. You will be my queen. I'll feel just like your king. Oh darling ! Is not that enough? It won't be ever such a dream. Even when now it is just a gleam. You can still change my whole life. You cut me to the bone, Delightful lovely knife. Now I'm waiting for you night and day. Night and day. Night and day. You and me. She was looking for an other night and day With me, and I was ok. She came in my room. I felt just like a fool. Oh baby, please comme close to me. Night and day. Night and day. You and me. Night and day. Night and day. You and me.

Le Métisse Sage (Mikka Grytviken) Mwen sé moun lot bô, mwen sé moun isi-a Mwen sé moun lot bô mé mwen sé moun Sé pa lanmé-a ki kay séparé nou Sé pa frontyè ki kay di ki jan nou yé Mwen sé moun lot bô, mwen sé moun isi-a Tou sempleman mwen sé moun Sé pa lanmé-a ki kay séparé nous Sé pa frontyè ki kay di ki jan nou yé Si je vous parle de métissage C'est parce qu'il est un doux présage Si je vous parle de métissage C'est pour enfin tourner la page Avec toutes les couleurs du monde Que je sais trouver à la ronde Bien que je sois déjà métisse C'est avec elles que je me tisse Le métisse sage… Sous un ciel sans nuage au sommet des montagnes Au rythme lancinant des bambous sous le vent Dans un pays magique où grandit la biguine Dans un tout p'tit endroit embrassé par le bleu Si je vous parle de métissage C'est parce qu'il est un doux présage Si je vous parle de métissage C'est pour enfin tourner la page Avec toutes les couleurs du monde Que je sais trouver à la ronde Bien que je ne sois pas métisse C'est avec elles que je me tisse Le métisse sage... … tout simplement C'est pas la mer qui séparera les hommes Pas les frontières qui nous diront qui nous sommes Avec toutes les couleurs du monde Que je sais trouver à la ronde Bien qu'on ne me croit pas métisse C'est avec elles que je me tisse Issues de ces plus beaux endroits Où être libre est plus qu'un droit Par le mélange des couleurs Je voudrais restaurer vos cœurs Le métisse sage …

I Don't Believe In Merry Christmas (Mikka Grytviken) I live in a wonderful land Where never it snows Where there is no woold on the lamb Hot is the only wind I know Coconut juice and pulp for breakfast Sun, tan pretty girls (and) blue sky That's why I don't believe in Merry Christmas Beach and sea, Blues and Jazz jams Sunglasses, sombrero From January to December Ice cream, milky way each night Extra old rhum, coktails, hot food and brown sugar Nothing to do but a kiss That's why I don't believe in Merry Christmas Hurrican, volcano, Earthquake, moskito, snake bite Giant spider, tropical rain Flood, drought, Island VAT Traffic jam, global warning Tsunami, hair lost … Oh my lord !!! So that's why I don't believe in Merry Christmas … any more !

She's Gone 04:42
She's Gone (Mikka Grytviken) She's gone She let me all alone Not telling where she went I've never been malevolent Now how to face the wind With my heart made so thin Loving is not a game Driving poor me insane She's gone She don't want with me stay Let me blue all the way And this sad song to sing The way I'm feeling bad I'm burning deep inside She blew up all my mind I thought she was so kind She's gone Her sweet voice in my phone Told me it ain't a shame I get free from her chain She's messing all my life She's gone during the night Handled like a rope sheave She did better to leave She's gone She let me all alone Not telling where she went I've never been malevolent Now how to face the wind With my heart made so thin Loving is not a game Driving poor me insane

about

Here is an album that both bears its name while transgressing styles and musical rhythms. Like his previous electronic experimental EP, Mikka Grytviken weaves here with his Power Trio landscapes where styles meet, collide, confront each other and finally merge. The Brazilian and Caribbean rhythms are illuminated sometimes by a blues-rock electric guitar and sometimes by an acoustic guitar with a gypsy jazz perfume. We meet country guitars on Creole mazurka rhythms and other times psychedelic rock guitars with jazz fusion phrasing mixing with funky and soul feeling. The Blues is here unraveled and debunked to be revisited sometimes in fourteen bars on a drumming drums and bass shuffle and guitar with New Orleans accents and sometimes on a binary ballad in an unusual verse chorus structure. The Pop music is not outdone which is tortured by harmonies and arrangements borrowed from Jazz which is discreetly omnipresent all along the album. English, Creole and French lyrics full of poetry tell us often sensual sometimes ironic stories carried by a voice with an amazing tessitura and tone. Corporation Long Stay is not only a musical trip but also a great earthquake that reorganizes a map of the world whose boundaries become intentionally unreadable for the purpose of reconciliation through stylistic intermingling.
