about

Secretive Strasbourg, France

À l'origine un duo électro-folk, Secretive a mué en combo pop électrique ou acoustique autour du chanteur et songwriter Antoine Villard. Le groupe manifeste sa complicité par des chansons électriques aux mélodies espiègles parées de rythmes mutins et de voix multiples et confidentes, sous l'influence d'Elliott Smith, Radiohead, Exsonvaldes... ... more

Track Name: Dream away
there's no reason why
i would show away
as i lie
dying of a smile
 
and as time goes by
i should stay away
and tell you why
there's no need to pray
 
dream away
for no compromise i say
to the overground
oh yeah
give away
all the secrets of your stay
in the overground
oh yeah
 
there's no alibi
i should bear they say
but i lie
trying to be no slave
Track Name: Comets
the way she calls him
are you my daddy too?
the way he calls her
is she my lover too?
 
the way he calls her
are you my mommy too?
the way she calls him
is he my lover too?
 
we are the comets
of a new resurrection
we are the shooting stars
of the new generation
and we are falling
falling to the ground
 
the way she is mine
pardon and revenge
and moments in time
when everything can change
Track Name: Tell me
i believe i’ve spent this time
seeking to find you
but these words they sound bad
hurting your relics
 
tell me if it’s too soon
to love each other yet
if some other soons
awaiting for us over there
 
of withering promises
whose bitterness lingers
of words spoken too soon
and too soon forgotten
 
tell me if our strokes
our velvets and our traps
soften into promises
or live on as favours
 
of intense memories
carved vanished
from unavoidable griefs
to hidden fears
 
tell me if you want
where you’ll be tonight
tell me if everything is fine
where are we tonight?
Track Name: Don't be sad
people breathe behind
the wan facades of the stars
sleeping so close to each other
that their nightmares overlap
please… don’t be… sad
 
comes a quiet day
for my worried smiles
i love your little secrets
i don't fear them anymore
so please, don’t be sad
 
i can see the pictures of my own dreams
i can see the pictures of my own dreams
and some that other dreamt in which i used to hide
some that other dreamt in which i hid
 
even if your shelter
for the night is not safe
and your aim still far away
there is no path without end
so please, don’t be sad
Track Name: One of these moods
i am worn again
i can’t say a thing
now she waves her hand
i wish i could sing

one of these moods
i might be rude
there is no place inside
where i could be in hide
when the torments flee
i am so silly
wish i found a place outside
where i could be in hide

i am wild again
i guess i could sing
i am quite a catch
i don’t fear a thing

one of these moods
i might be rude
there is no place inside
where i could be in hide
when the torments flee
i am so silly
wish i found a place outside
where i could be in hide

when in the morning i brood, the minute after i smile
i wish that time was stalled to let this jiffy survive
when in the evening i smile, the minute after i brood
but now i feel i can survive
now i feel i can decide
now i feel i can be alive
Track Name: The unwanted army
if you had the beauty
you could be popular
you would walk along the avenue
with a casual delight
 
and be staring at the stars
down along the causeway
and an unworldly sigh
to the unwanted army
 
if you were a coward
you would be fortunate
you could sell your untamed soul
to the major antichrist
 
and be throwing all your hopes
in the crown of the gulf
and a cynical sigh
to the unwanted army
Track Name: Glass doll
i am a glass doll
with a little bell inside
and every time i quiver
i got headache
 
i wish i could sense
the wind that bends the grass
just nothing but air
that sneaks around things
 
i am cold
but my anger grows
as the wind blows
 
i am a glass doll
with a little bell inside
and every time i quiver
i got headache
 
if you put me down
i would spread out into
myriads of brilliant beads
billions of tears
Track Name: Blow
you didn’t know me
but you’ve all been coming to my funeral
and while the fences open
i don’t wanna take it personal
 
if you could foresee through the verses
and the jeering diaries
secrets and blackouts hover
to a future alien vessel
 
cry with me
scent the winds of change blow
we shall flee
or be twirling around
 
you didn’t know me
but you’ve all been coming to my funeral
down with my little row boat
do i do i turn around oh no
 
cry with me
scent the winds of change blow
we shall flee or be twirling around
Track Name: There's a place
the porter sends a mocking smile
i’m sweating all the salt of my mind
what am i doing here?
am i crazy being setting out like this?
 
the number on the door is mine
the dumber of the men i am
please fall, please don’t call
i’ll be ready but i don’t understand
 
i think i’m feeling faint, my love
there’s a place, i’ve never been ready for it
heavy my load
there’s a place, i’m falling on down the road
 
sorry if there is no chance
i can get out of my trance
i don’t mind if i am
crawling my doubts along the stage again
 
how come i can’t run away
there’s a place, i’ve never been ready for it
i feel i can’t breathe again
there’s a place, i’m falling on down the road
 
going to the show, a light in your eyes
a dusty vapour blows, and a floodlight flies
the stereo explodes and i’m feeling fine
when the levee breaks i’ll be right i guess
Track Name: Maybe
this is my own reverie
hello, can you hear me?
this is where i want to be
where i’m feeling free
 
when the night is falling
maybe you can understand
or maybe not
when the lights are calling 
maybe you can understand
or maybe not
 
this is your own reverie
somehow you could join me
this is where you would be
if you had believed me
Track Name: Hold on
i sense in your little words
that something's gonna happen
the ways that semt so simple
no sound like an echo
 
when your eyes came to rest on me
i was caught off my guard
with your innocent tiny voice
suddenly asking me why
 
if you mind 'bout the right thinking
hold on, hold on
if you think that we've all turned silly
hold on, hold on
 
far away the serenity
trying to find an answer
in the waves of my favourite song
that's where i belong
 
you can trust all the love around you
and hold on, hold on
and rely on your fantasy
hold on, hold on
Track Name: In touch with the stars
you believe you know her
but you just don't
and that's ok
'cause she doesn't belong to you
 
let's find the balance
before it's over
you're damned to this
but you know it makes you live
 
and now she's in touch with the stars
and you are the worm in love
and that is so frightening
 
you believe you know her
but you just don't
and that's ok
'cause she doesn't belong to you
 
and now she's in touch with the stars
and you are the worm in love
and that is so frightening
