‘Defiant’ Canal+ Live from Lou Doillon 1st Album

I don’t know if you will enjoy it as much as I do, but I’ve been listening to Lou Doillon‘s ‘Defiant’ song on repeat for the last two days since I saw her (1st) live on Canal+. The song from her 1st album ‘Places’ (already n#2 on the French charts in less than a week) is a hit! 30 year-old daughter of Jane Birkin and Jacques Doillon, and step daughter of French superstar Serge Gainsbourg, Lou grew up around musicians and has finally surrendered to the calling! In this album I discovered an affirmed, singular and very touching voice, a mix between Amy Whinehouse and Moriart with some beautiful arrangements. Buy it on iTunes here

Defiant Lyrics:

I used to stand strong and defiant to the wind,
Like a bird of storm in any currents,
I’d spread my wings
I used to ride them furious waves singing:
To no country nor man will I ever be slave!
But now no moon, no stars will show me the way

 

I used to say alone is how one travels best,
Home is where I stand, don’t need
Anything else…
And I never knew
This ease could leave
I never thought I’d say,
Please show me the way…

 

Cause now no moon, no stars will show the way
Cause now no breeze, no blast, will billow my sail

 

I used to stand strong and defiant to the wind,
Like a bird of storm in any currents,
I’d spread my wings

 

But now no moon, no stars will show me the way
But now no blast, no breeze will billow my sail
