It's Not Even A Colour

She sits there in her room Listening to The Cure She’s there on her own With her headphones on Her little sis storms in: she wants to know more She streams, she screens: she wants to know more She says ‘Black is beautiful’ She says it’s not even a colour She says ‘Black is beautiful’ She says it’s not even a colour She heads straight from school To embrace subculture With Doc Martens boots and a Niggy Tardust tee-shirt on She gets dirty looks from all the other girls Who do wonder what is wrong with her She says ‘Black is beautiful’ They say it’s not even a colour She says ‘Black is beautiful’ They say it’s not even a colour Her folks think she is demented Her folks think she’s been abducted By the white white white white white white noise By the white white white white white white noise They say ‘Black is beautiful’ She says it’s not even a colour They say ‘Black is beautiful’ She says it’s not even a colour It’s not even a colour, it’s not even a colour She digs the vibe of Wesley Willis She feels his stress on neurosis Bad Brains: she gains, she gets, she rates Bad Brains: she gains, she gets, she rates They say ‘Black is Beautiful’ : It’s not even a colour They say ‘Black is Beautiful’ : It’s not even a colour It’s not even a colour, it’s not even a colour Have you ever felt this way? Hum, hum, hum Have you ever felt this way? Hum, hum, hum Have you ever felt this way? Hum, hum, hum To say, to say… ‘I know, I know, I know, I know’ ‘I know, I know, I know, I know’ ... ‘BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL'

Deed is Done 03:05
I knew you were too good to be true “I love you” came into play way too soon And I knew that it would hurt eventually I didn’t care, I was too busy being happy It’s all gone: the deed is done It’s all gone: the deed is done I had to let go of you That was all but easy You had become my favourite enemy I had to go cold turkey It’s all gone: the deed is done It’s all gone: the deed is done I wish I could have seen the light And not have given you any of my day But love is blind, they say So I suffer quietly Day in day out, Longer by the memory Of how it feels to be happy It’s all gone: the deed is done It’s all gone: the deed is done It’s all gone: the deed is done It’s all gone: the deed is done

Si tu voulais de mon amour Il t’appartiendrait pour toujours Je te donne le compte à rebours Pour que tu me fasses la cour Tu me dragues, je te vannes On est tous les deux Tu me nargues, je m’attache On tombe amoureux Et quand bien même Les choses se gâteraient Saches que je t’aime Et cela a tout jamais C’est une belle histoire d’amour Comme on en entend pas tous les jours Pourvu qu’elle dure pour toujours Et nous inspire quelques calembours Tu m’enlaces, je t’embrasse On se tient la mien Tu m’agaces, je m’agite Mais ça ne fait rien Car quand bien même Les choses se gâteraient Saches que je t’aime Et cela a tout jamais ‘Cause every I want, you’ve got it Everything I need, you’ve got it Anything at all, you’ve it Da, Da, Da,Da, Da, Da, Da Da, Da, Da, Da, Da

Let’s sum up what’s going’ on: You and I loving each other ‘Got to keep that secret ‘Cause it’s not of common use We don’t match each other, they say And this you believe, and this you listen From now on, I’m like Mardou Losing her Jack away Wanna fit into the system And for that purpose you’d break off The building of our love To join the herd … In Olympia they looked the same, and talked the same and fucked the same But everywhere around is the same … Listen to the breeders, instead of your heart Their money and cocaine can win it I understand and I forgive I’ll stick around I’ll stick around I’ll stick around

about

Madame So London, UK

"This North London-based solo artist is intense. She’ll remind you of so many singers but is impossible to pin down." (The Girls Are)

“Possibly one of the most exciting lyricists working in London at this time and a great performer with a proper Parisian edge and a twisted sense of humour.” (sic Simulated Pragmatism)

In her own words: “If I pushed your buttons, I’ve accomplished my mission.”
