Cosmic Day


Lost in the dark
A quiet star awaits
Its time to rise and shine
In its own special way

Comets come passing by
Flashing through the night
The planets trace a curious line
They send a sign

As the moon begins to glow
A flower blooms
Up above a U.F.O
Blinks for you

It’s a cosmic day
It’s your day

Now it’s time, little star
To hide your fragile scars
Brush off the dusty clouds
Don’t let the eclipse shroud
Your precious sky

Slowly, eventually
Galaxies collide
Somewhere out in the cold
A storm unfolds

As the sun begins to fade
A dream comes true
Up above a constellation
Winks at you

Until the Earth begins to part
I’ll pull you through
This lonely room inside your heart
Has space for two

It’s a cosmic day
Shine away

Silver Screen (Just For One Day)


On the silver screen
I’m a hero
Running through the heat
Then home to watch you sleep
On my pillow

On the silver screen
I’m a genius
I’d make a flying cape
Then we could escape
To Mars or Venus

Boys and girls, freaks in disguise
A whole universe at your door
Watch the world right through their eyes
We can be them and even more

Just for one day

On the silver screen
I’m a gangster
Gone without a trace
With bruises on our faces
We’d be partner in crime

Magic words, little white lies
A hundred colours to explore
See the world right through their minds
Till we can’t pretend anymore

Just for a while

On the edge of the bed
I’m a lover
I ain’t got no name on the big screen
But my kisses are real
I’m your lover

Digital Parasite


I’m a lonely man-machine
Staring at life through a window
A soul that’s getting cold

My body bleeds caffeine
My brain is stuck in limbo
Until I crack the code

Digital Parasite
You’re feeding my appetite
Digital Parasite
Give me something to bite

Satellite, Megabytes
Get me through the night

I’m a glitch in the system
Daddy’s painful mistake
A mind that’s getting numb

Like an evil algorithm
The snake slowly awakes
Oh what a beast I’ve become

Safe in my nest
Adventures and quests
A million new friends
For me to pretend

Digital Parasite
You’re filling my empty heart
Digital Parasite
Until I’m out of sight

Sunlight, Dynamite
Take me to the light

The smell of the sea
The song of the trees
It’s there at your feet
Yet so out of reach

The touch of a kiss
The taste of her lips
Just get on your feet
Step onto the street

Elusive Memory

Once again I’m sailing this ocean
Drifting in a tide of emotion
I’m sinking in an elusive memory of you

I’m walking dazed to a rendezvous
Staring at the haze on the avenue
Intoxicated by the reminiscence of your love

Like a lonely satellite
I’m spinning through the night
Lost in an elusive memory of you
Until I fade away

Slowly the leaves have turned gold
Colorful dreams left untold
Somewhere I know, you watch them fall

Sweet Fantasies


She’s a lion
Running in the wild
A cold beauty
Biting where it hurts

Like a siren
Ready to beguile
She lures me
Down where evil lurks

Tell me your sweet fantasies
Let me fall deep into
A sky of billion galaxies
A trip of endless ecstasy

She’s a devil
Waiting in the dark
A hurricane
Precious and brutal

Like a missile
Quiet through the night
She lights a fire
In my reckless heart

Surrender all your mysteries
Let me dive deep into
A sea of burning desire
A dream of toxic delight

Why do we let this painful lust
Turn our minds into dust?

Now it’s time to bring me down
Cross the line, leave this town

Take this broken soul of mine
On an everlasting ride

© Achille, 2014


Holding a seashell in her hand
Sapphire dances on the sand
Morning breeze on her purple gown
Smooth sunlight, autumn dawn

And the sleeping moon is shimmering

Lying there, awake again
Yet I’ve tried to understand
How I want you to be
How I want you to see
The world through me

And the howling waves are glimmering

Cold fire
Take me away
From this world so grey

Sad Songs


Crystal voice
Howling words
Wistful rejoice
Lonely birds

Minor touch
Silent punch

Sad songs
Beautiful, sad songs
Read me
Cradle me
When life feels a bit wrong

Rainy sun
Cloudy ink
Shivering gun
Snowy drink

Moody star
Fragile scar

Sad songs
Beautiful, sad songs
Heal me
Comfort me
When life’s letting me down

And when I go to bed
Sad songs in my head
I dream in black and white
Of tomorrow’s colorful light

Sad songs
I love sad songs

Blank Life


Woke up and felt empty this morning
As if nothing had any meaning
I’m still a lonely kid
This silence kills

Went outside for a little walk
Looking for somebody to talk to
Saw a lost dog on the lawn
We’re both waiting for the dawn

Phone rang, a so-called friend
No I ain’t dead yet, what about you man?
It’s not like my life is ending
But more like it never started

I’ve been in this waiting room for so long
Hey Doctor you’ve forgotten to call my name
Yes I’m ill, I live a life with no aim

Maybe it’s time to rush
Bring some calm to the strife
Someone give me a brush
So I paint something on this blank life

Sublimely Beautiful


I’d offer you a symphony
But all I got is this little song
I’d already be happy
If it makes you wanna sing along

Well I don’t know how to start
There’s so much to tell you
So I’m speaking from my heart
And I think I love you

Because you are
Sublimely Beautiful
From your whole being

This may sound like a declaration
But it’s just an intense need
To put words on my passion
To let you know how I feel

Your bright smile, your tanned skin
Your laugh, and all your little quirks
The way you say Hi and Please
I love them all

Sublimely Beautiful
And it amazes me

I worry about doing too much
But it’s hard to contain exaltation
You’ve got the magic touch
I’ve got an addiction

So I play these few notes for your ears
And sing these few words for your heart
I hope it will reach you
Cauz’ it’s all I can really do

Sublimely Beautiful
And it scares me

Whatever It Is


Wearing my favorite shirt today
Rolled up sleeves, light blue
Even this one seems to turn grey
Whenever I stand next to you

Where do you buy your fancy clothes?
Whatever it is, it just glows

Got myself a new guitar
Brown wooden, nice and dry
I play quite busy, a shiny star
You play just right, a peaceful sky

What makes your voice sound so cute?
Whatever it is, I’m hooked

I like your flashy hair
Your quiet scent, your toothy smile
Darling I wish you’d care
Until then I’ll be near you, for a little while

Whatever it is
You’re beautiful
