All the Same 02:38
It’s ok to break your heart when you fall in love It’s ok to stumble from someplace high above It’s ok, it’s all the same It’s ok, it’s all the same It’s ok, it’s all the same Really it all feels exactly the same I know something you don’t know like to see you squirm You know something that I know just to me confirms It’s ok, it’s all the same etc. Walked into a moving bus Didn’t want to start a fuss When I saw you passing by With another girl at your side Oh, I could die When can I be at your side? Oh, I wanna cry, “When can I be at your side?” Let me spell it out plain and clear You were such a jerk ’tho I know you can be a dear You’re driving me berserk It’s ok, it’s all the same It’s ok, it’s all the same It’s ok, it’s all the same It’s ok, it’s all the same Really it all feels exactly the same ©Amie Amis/Amie Margoles 2015

Dapper Dan asked her to dance For her love, he’d take any chance muddy waters muddy waters He’s not who she’s promised for But she knew as they graced the dance floor muddy waters muddy waters Let’s dance for the day and travel the end of night I’ve something to say, allow me to invite you To dance for the day and travel the end of night We’ll make our own way, send each other’s dreams to the stars The ground sang to the sky So beautiful it made the sky cry muddy waters muddy waters The pig said to the sow I’ll take you away from these cows muddy waters muddy waters Let’s dance for the day and travel the end of night I’ve something to say, allow me to invite you To dance for the day and travel the end of night We’ll make our own way, send each other’s dreams to the stars ©Amie Amis/Amie Margoles 2015

LBD 03:58
Il y a beaucoup à s’inquiéter mesquinerie n’est pas abandonné This may come as a big surprise, we don’t realize The importance of a little black dress ce peut être un grande suprise The importance of a little black dress Le monde le lutte contre les jours Ouais, tous les jours, it’s in the news Cela peut venir comme une gross suprise la importance de la petite robe noire This may come as a big surprise, we don’t realize The importance of a little black dress ce peut être un grande suprise The importance of a little black dress nous portons des masques de la haine trouvez la paix est une grand-peine ©Amie Amis/Amie Margoles 2015

Fight Song 03:41
Let's take each others hearts Coddle them until they're nice and warm We'll smile and hold hands Clasp it with your free palm Squeeze the tender muscle until it bursts Your heart under my foot I would rather fight with you I would rather fight with you I would rather suffer with you Than be in contented love with anyone else Make me cry with your scorn Save my tears in a crystal crock Let's make love forlorn Stomp it out with a rock But there's nothing intensely so sublime As drams of mournful brine I would rather fight with you etc. Let's play mind games each day Turn our flame into foolish desire Remain mine this way Always be mine on fire Hold my thoughts, my breath, and every spell Until I lose myself I would rather fight with you etc. ©Amie Amis/Amie Margoles 2015

February 03:25
He likes to eat in bed Where I like to lay my head No fight, we kiss instead livin’ a beat ahead Never is it cold as it is now in this month February Time to hibernate and stay warm now in this month February Cozy next to you, next to me, cozy’s always free February, February Cozy next to you, next to me, cozy’s always free February, I embrace thee Simple as A to Z No need for any meds The moon changed white to red Defined our rights and said Never is it cold as it is now in this month February Time to hibernate and stay warm now in this month February Cozy next to you, next to me, cozy’s always free February, February Cozy next to you, next to me, cozy’s always free February, I embrace thee Uh oh, I’m filled with dread danger ice, I fear to tread Skating on a frozen lake in this cold month of February Hand in hand with you will make it more than nice instead of scary Cozy next to you, next to me, cozy’s always free, February ©Amie Amis/Amie Margoles 2015

Innocence 02:40
There is a place so dark the stars are staggering stark as we lounge on the hood of your car Feeling lush from wine coolers and it’s a blissful night for young lovers when innocence wasn’t a game when innocence wasn’t a game when innocence wasn’t a game when innocence wasn’t a game You hold my hand and sigh These dark hours fly steadily by The night is fresh and so are you only the starry sky hovers and it’s a blissful night for young lovers when innocence wasn’t a game when innocence wasn’t a game when innocence wasn’t a game when innocence wasn’t a game I make a pachyderm with squeezie cheese we’re sophisticated we’re creative It must be love or being twenty-one We have cool attitudes You show off your aptitude You point out Cassiopeia This night will live on forever and it’s a blissful night for young lovers when innocence wasn’t a look when innocence wasn’t a shoe when innocence wasn’t a tree when innocence wasn’t a door when innocence wasn’t a hive when innocence wasn’t a stick when innocence wasn’t a heaven when innocence wasn’t a game ©Amie Amis/Amie Margoles 2015

J'aime Marmite, j'aime sa sapide à l'instar de la sylphide alléchant ma langue, la tentation plus exotique que une mangue J'aime Marmite, c'est angélique Il a la plus forte de saveur que le monde, et pour le goût de confort, je suis gourmand. J'aime Marmite, c'est paradise l'étaler sur le pain, il mange à la cuillère. Il sera toujours mon copain, la couleur de la houillère. ©Amie Amis/Amie Margoles 2015

about

Inspired by 1960's French pop, film music and mod genres, Amie's cheerful songs are hooky, happy and have a pinch of cynicism. All music written and arranged by Amie Amis
