“Ich habe mir immer vorgestellt, dass das Leben eine Höhle voller Kerzen ist. Bei unserer Geburt brennt die Hälfte der Kerzen. Jede gute Tat entzündet eine weitere und spendet etwas mehr Licht. Aber zwischendurch erlöschen auch Flammen durch Egoismus und Gemeinheiten. Verstehst du? Einige Kerzen zünden wir an,andere pusten wir aus. Am Ende können wir nur hoffen, dass wir in dieser Welt mehr Licht als Dunkel geschaffen haben. Ich halte inne, stelle mir meine eigene Höhle voller Kerzen vor.
Gibt es bei mir mehr Licht als Dunkelheit?”

Laisse le feu de ton amour brûler ma douleur
et purifier mon âme afin que je puisse voler sans ailes.

Let the fire of your love burn my sorrow
and purify my soul so I can fly without wings.
Flamme à Lunettes (Flames and Glasses)
Samantha Barks
Flamme à Lunettes (Flames and Glasses)

A new song featuring Samantha called “Flamme à Lunettes (Flames and Glasses)” from Jack and The Cuckoo Clock Heart. Lyrics below:

Miss Acacia:
My vision’s not quite right
But glasses make me look a sight
Enough to give the world a fright
Like a sprite wearing specs

Oh fiery little sprite
Conflagration in the night
Don’t play games with your sight
If it leaves you in the dark

Miss Acacia:
I prefer, life all the blur
I forget to wear my glasses
When I sing I share caresses
It feels good to close my eyes

Oh my pretty arsenist
Let me clasp you close to me
Or rip your clothes with my teeth
And tear them into confetti
To scatter as we kiss….

Miss Acacia:

….On you and me

Miss Acacia:
All I see are stars
Suddenly some days
My eyes leave me astray
Faraway down the street
Until I can’t bare to steal
A glance at the sun
Or even look the sky straight in the eye
All I see are stars

I won’t let you stray
I’ll be your only guide
Let me be your pair of eyes
You will be my special flame

Miss Acacia:
There’s one thing I must confess
Of five senses my hearing’s best
I’ll never recognize you by relying on my eyes

Smoldering embers, alone in the dark
We’ll raise cascades of sparks
As the clock of my heart
Strikes midnight we’ll catch on fire
And blaze so bright you’ll see the light

Miss Acacia and Jack:
All I see are stars
Suddenly some days
My eyes leave me astray
Faraway down the street
Until I can’t bare to steal
A glance at the sun
Or even look the sky straight in the eye
All I see are stars
