It’s gonna make a little difference Music and lyrics by Fanelly It happens that, we’ve not the same heroes - It happens that, tears are mysteries for us - It happens that, cities loose their rhythm - And then it makes a little difference - To our little existence - And no physical resistance - It’s gonna make a little difference - Happiness has another taste - I understand that life has to go on - Promises, wishes tears and pride of…- Soon forget the earth’s ambitions - Daily thoughts then seem so far - Now I am lost but just being grateful - To be safe at the other side…- It’s gonna make a little difference - To our little existence - And no physical resistance - It’s gonna make a little difference - Do or die - Don’t provoke me - Born to die - Take me all my freedom - Do or die…..- It happens that we’ve not the same heroes - You’re not my hero….you’re not my hero….

One step behind Music & lyrics by Fanelly Mr Kiaka runs fast - All the conditions are, satisfied - A house a wife and a car and… a top 5 MBA - Another meeting starts… - He’s never been a star though, just a good cow - And those who came in the year are…more brilliant - Chances are scarce he will be the next Bill Gates - But there’s something - Inside him - Bursting inside out !!!!! - Just one step behind the right way - Like Abraham Maslow said - Flowless flows inside my head - But I don’t want to be that way - I have worked so hard to be in the aquarium - But I don’t want to be any more in - I’ve got to go - Mr. Kiaka…- He wanna be where it counts- He wants purpose, - He wants a status quo and…a premium credit card- His heart is divided…he’s got to get that role - But there’s something else - Inside him - Keeping him alive !!! - Self-actualization give me the place - and give me the space and give me the air…..give me the air….. - But there’s something else - Inside him - Keeping him alive… - Just one step behind the right way - Like Abraham Maslow said - Flowless flows, inside my head - I don’t want to be that way - I have worked so hard to be in the aquarium - Bring me value, please mean something - Please let me go.

about

"The Metro has always haunted and intrigued me with its endless flow of people travelling from one place to the next, carrying their energies, emotions, and their stories. They are strangers that drift into our lives for just a moment."

It was during her daily commute in the city of Paris that Fanelly conceived the melodies and lyrics of the songs in this debut album, capturing her passing thoughts and imagined stories as she travelled through the sea of faces.

A creative work triggered and influenced by two tragic events: the Paris terrorist attacks in 2015 and the loss of her father in 2016.

"These events left me with a deep sense of loss, fragility, and the temporary nature of life. I explored these themes both musically and lyrically as I pondered the life, hopes, dreams, dramas and the secrets behind the masks of the metro commuters."

Recorded between Italy and France, with a line-up of new talents of the current French and Italian jazz scene, METRO STORIES is a touching emotional jazz-pop album, so personal, with pure arrangements and daily «heroes» in search of identity and truth…
