Track Name: The End of a Dream
The End of a Dream (Jimmy Tillier)

At last, I’m in the place I love
Here I live, the life, I want
It’s the night, and I am dreaming

But something strange is happening
This whole world of illusions
slowly begins to fade away
The end is near, the day is here


I’m inconscient, but I know it
I’m in a world I created
This is the place where I can rest,
I am dreaming, but I’m living

Every night, I’m born and die
I dream my life, and live in dreams
And when the sun begins to rise
A sad real life is breaking in

Reality is far away
But I am fine, I wanna stay
This is heaven, I know it’s fake
But I can’t fight, I’m gonna wake

Real world is dull, all is routine
No one is free, by any means
Everyone’s life is just the same
You want to change, but all is vain

I am dreaming / I want to stay / I don’t want to wake...


I’m inconscient, but I know it
I’m in a world I created
This is the place where I can rest,
I am dreaming, but I’m living

Every night, I’m born and die
I dream my life, and live in dreams
And when the sun begins to rise
A sad real life is breaking in

Reality is far away
But I am fine, I wanna stay
This is heaven, I know it’s fake
But I can’t fight, I’m gonna wake


I know one day, we will all die
Let’s live the night, so we don’t care
I wish one day, the sun will burn
To free people from their lives.
Track Name: I Will Light a Candle
I will light a candle (Jimmy Tillier)

When I came home tonight, everything was quiet
Next to your dead body, you left me a letter
You wanted to suicide, that was your secret
You couldn’t bear the world, you felt too much anger

I’m a dreamer, you told me how to remember
In your words, you asked me to look in the fire


I will light a candle
In the fire flicking
I will see you dancing

I will light a fire
To feel again your warmth
And love you forever


I will live with your flame
Trying to forget my pain
Everything is lightened
Your last will is granted


I will light a candle
In the fire flicking
I will see you dancing

I will light a fire
To feel again your warmth
And love you forever
Track Name: The Book of Destiny
The Book of Destiny (Jimmy Tillier)

I found book in an old library
It’s been forever now
My name engraved on the cover
This book was all my destiny

I was curious, and started to read
All my life was, to me, revealed
And on the last of all pages, I read my death
One night a car would end my life.


I saw my death in all the lines
All was written, there were no lies
One day, a light with dreadful shine
Will write «end» on my storyline


After reading I tried real hard
All these years to change my future
With no success, I soon realized
That everything was to occur


I saw my death in all the lines
All was written, there were no lies
One day, a light with dreadful shine
Will write «end» on my storyline


Whatever way I chose, Whatever thing I tried
I couldn’t change my destiny


On that sad day, I saw the light
I was prepared, that was my fate,
You then appeared, and pushed me right
You saved my life, and disappeared

I had to die, that was my fate
You saved my life, and now I’m free
You cut my string of destiny
I’m now writing my own story
Track Name: Open your Eyes
Open your Eyes (Jimmy Tillier)

Close your eyes, and in the dark
Try to forget all you like
Try to think about the world
Try to feel people around

Close your eyes, and free your mind
You don’t see, but you’re not blind
You’re starting to feel humanity


Open your eyes and feel dazzled
Open your eyes and see the truth
Open your eyes and meet your world

No illusions, no fakes or lies
Open your eyes, and all is bright
Open your eyes


Look around you there are people
You didn’t see them all before
Now that your eyes are all opened
You are not alone any more

You didn’t know you were in jail
In the comfort of your own house
Outside there’s fear, and violence
But you’re not said there’s something else


Open your eyes and feel dazzled
Open your eyes and see the truth
Open your eyes and meet the world
For the first time, without blinkers

No illusions, no fakes or lies
There are colors, hopes and smiles
Open your eyes, and all is bright
Open your eyes


Open your eyes and
discover, meet, look, listen,
feel, share, love, smile, laugh
and....live


Open your eyes and feel the light
Open your eyes and see the truth
Open your eyes and meet the world
For the first time, without blinkers

No illusions, no fakes or lies
There are colors, hopes and smiles
Open your eyes, and all is bright
Open your eyes
Track Name: No Memories
No Memories (Jimmy Tillier)

Where am I ? I have no idea
For all I know, I’m home
On a table, there’s a diary,
I have to read, every morning

In that diary, I write my life
People I meet are in pictures,
For each moment, drawings and words,
In all this book are my memories


Everyday I live a new life
I know everything has a past
Whereas everyone remembers
Every night I dream and forget


Parts of my life in front of me
I’m sure they’re all in my story
Not sure of my identity
I see some signs reassuring me

The only help I carry
Is a diary always handy
It looks after my fragile past
My memories are sealed to the last


Everyday I live a new life
I know everything has a past
Whereas everyone remembers
Every night I dream and forget

I don’t remember the past day
All my hopes and fears are away
All the past I have is written
The night my memories, are stolen


End of the day, I sort memories
I keep only the laughs and smiles

If I don’t like, the day I lived
The page is torn, and all has gone

I live my life always happy
During the night, I forget all


Everyday I live a new life
I know everything has a past
Whereas everyone remembers
Every night I dream and forget

I don’t remember the past day
All my hopes and fears are away
All the past I have is written
The night my memories, are stolen
