Mark great review. I promised to read it and I did. Regarding your comments about Bridge of Hope (I noticed that you gave this song the most thought). While there are so many different beliefs and views we will never be able to hold hands together. The people of my own nation here in South Africa are not able to hold hands even if we agree most of the times, because people are simply not willing to stand together. If people can start to stand together we will be able to solve many problems, but it is constantly everyone on his/her own. In the end you will find that the only solution is not about how many people you have behind a specific cause, but the true solution is to repent from our sins and return to the way God intended us to live our lives. Our problems is the result of our way of life. I totally agree that many people hope for a solution and the willingness to be a part of the solution is at least one step in the right direction.

wow! you guys gave such great reviews i am speechless.....
all i can say is that i, too, love this album. it's my second favourite of her studio albums (Nue is my fave) because i like almost all the songs in it. i actually listened to this album after Pure and Nue because they didn't have it in our library, but once i got a hold of it i loved it instantly. i kind of consider this as her real first album because it's the first one in which she wrote a lot of the songs.
as i mentioned before, i love almost every song in this album. the ones i'm not too keen on are Saisir le jour, Ramene-moi and Dites-moi pourquoi je l'aime. i love Je Vivrai for the melody and the hopeful lyrics, it's become my motto. i love the passion of Tu t'en vas. i love the quiet declaration of Pas sans toi. and of course, Lara's version of Je suis malade is simply breathtaking. her performance of that song on En Toute Intimité was the single most amazing thing i had ever seen. it was that moment that made me completely fall in love with Lara.
i don't often listen to Lara's albums per se, or any album for that matter, but i do listen to her songs in my mp3 player everyday. i'm more of a "song" aficionado and some of my all-time favourite songs are from Carpe Diem. but then again, a lot of my all-time fave songs are by Lara ;D
I've just done it for you, it should be correct! I'm Sick
I don’t dream anymore I don’t smoke anymore I don’t even have a story anymore I’m alone without you I’m ugly without you Like an orphan in a dormitory
I don’t want To live my life anymore My life ends when you leave I don’t have a life anymore And also my bed Turns out to be a track of a station When you leave
I’m sick Completely sick Like when my mother went out at night And she left me alone with my despair I’m sick Perfectly sick You arrive and one never knows when You leave and one never knows where And it’s going to be two years That you don’t mind
As a rock As a sin I’m wrapped on you I’m tired, I’m exhausted To pretend to be happy When they are present I drink every night And all the whiskies Have the same taste for me And every ship Carries you flag I don’t know where to go You’re everywhere
I’m sick Completely sick I pour my blood in your body And I’m like a dead bird When you sleep I’m sick Perfectly sick You deprived me from all my songs You emptied me out from all my words But I had the talent In front of your skin
This love kills me And if it keeps going I’ll die alone with myself Near my radio Like an idiot child I’ll listen to my own voice That will sing
I’m sick Completely sick Like when my mother went out at night And she left me alone with my despair I’m sick Yes, I’m sick You deprived me from all my songs You emptied me out from all my words And I have my heart completely sick Surrounded by barricades I hear you I’m sick

Just a note about "Tu t'en vas" most people seem to think that the song is about a man cheating on Lara with another woman but not at all. Actually, it is about a man who is in a couple with another woman but he is cheating on her with Lara but he is coming back to the other woman and Lara says that it's the last time that she will be "the second woman"
