about

DRESS Lausanne, Switzerland

It was after an unlikely encounter that Dress was born in 2006. That of Brigitte Buhlmann Poget, a fan of soul, funk and R'n'B, and Laurent Poget, raised in the rock culture of the 70ties.
In 2007, Dress delivers a remarked debut album, "Misunderstanding".
"Transparency" is their new eclectic album where the voice is the common thread that takes you to the very personal sound of DRESS.

Track Name: Wake Up
Wake Up

I’m running in the cold night I can see the streetlight
The blue screens in the houses The kids and the spouses
They think they’re cool With their piece of grass and pool
This will drive me to distraction
Now’s the time to ask the big question

Wake up ! Wake up ! Wake up !
We know what’s coming up
Time to act before
We drink the cup
Wake up ! Wake up ! Wake up !
We know what’s coming up
Before we drink the cup

I’m running in the cold night
Away from the safelight
The very sight of this neighborhood
Brings me back to my childhood
Money makes them feel they’re safe
It’s the only thing they can face
Hostages from the green bill
They’d be ready to kill

Wake up ! Wake up ! Wake up !
We know what’s coming up
Time to act before
We drink the cup
Wake up ! Wake up ! Wake up !
We know what’s coming up
Before we drink the cup

I’m running in the cold night
Not a soul in sight
Big wheels shinny black cars
Sheltered from the crowbars
The gates are made of steel
They know the danger is real
Things can go wrong
The temptation is too strong

Wake up ! Wake up ! Wake up !
We know what’s coming up
Time to act before
We drink the cup
Wake up ! Wake up ! Wake up !
We know what’s coming up
Before we drink the cup
Wake up ! Wake up !
We know what’s coming up
Don't drink the cup

Track Name: Expectations
Expectations

Why don’t you show me?
Something that I can see ?
I look for magic, look for magic
Wrap me, wrap me in a flower in plastic
Shake those habits
Come, come on to me

Bring me higher expectations
It’s all about faith
Give me some affection
Show me round your place

Show no remorse
Do the right thing
I need some magic, need some magic
Take me, take me to your tower, I’m lovesick
Lonesome spirit
Don’t you disagree

Bring me higher expectations
It’s all about faith
Give me some affection
Show me round your place

Show no remorse
Do the right thing
I need some magic, need some magic
Take me, take me to your tower, I’m lovesick

Bring me higher expectations
It’s all about faith
Give me some affection
Show me round your place

Track Name: Family Tree
Family Tree

Lost in my memories
Too many stories
Told me
I was blind
I don’t know what I’ll find
But the never ending rage
Blocked away
In a cage
We should learn from mistakes
That’s what it takes
There’s so much at stake

We’ve got to break free
Shake the family tree
It’s hard to turn the page
We’ve got to break free
Shake the family tree
For the new generations

Don’t take it for granted
Open up the doors
I won’t hide anymore
Anymore
The future could be bright
But you gotta keep it right
Like a chain reaction

We’ve got to break free
Shake the family tree
It’s hard to turn the page
We’ve got to break free
Shake the family tree
It’s hard to turn the page
We’ve got to break free
Shake the family tree
For the new generations

Track Name: Different Without You
Different Without You

I’m standing in a crossroad
I need to put down my load
What’s good or bad when you should be glad
To have me

I’m know I’m alive
Haven’t got time
I know I’m alive
I’m different without you

Nobody’s around me
Nobody’s against me
But the tiredness that I feel
The tiredness that I feel is real

I’m know I’m alive
Haven’t got time
I know I’m alive
I’m different without you

A light in my conscious
Something most precious
Makes me walk on the wild side
A light in my conscious
Something most precious
Makes me walk on the wild side

I’m know I’m alive
Haven’t got time
I know I’m alive
I’m different without you

You wake up one morning
And your inner voice rings
Like a whisper in my ear
Like a whisper in your ear
Won’t go away, won’t go away

I’m know I’m alive
Haven’t got time
I know I’m alive
I’m different without you

Track Name: Too Much
Too Much

Each day I try to understand
What this situation means
I didn’t think of any plan
Any tricks from any teens
Is this love I’m feeling for you?
‘Kind of love that’s too much for you

I can hear everything from you
But I can’t survive to this kind of blue
It’s like an empty space
This passion burns my brain

And you always say
And you always say
I’m too much

Each day, I try to stop the row
But the situation lasts
I definitely wish for you
And I another sky
Is this love I’m feeling for you?
‘Kind of love that’s too much for you

I definitely bet on this life with you
Dear, I can’t help my feelings

I only need to think of a scheme
Believe that wasn’t just a dream
However you must conceive
That love is the only key

And you always say
And you always say
I’m too much
And you always say
And you always say

Track Name: Gotta Go
Gotta Go

Gotta go
Move ahead
Gotta be
In my bed
Watch the stars
In the dark
Need a sign
Need a spark

It’s time, it’s right, it’s fine... Sunshine !
My time, my life is right… Sunshine !

I can breathe
Without you
More at ease
And feeling new
I’m not afraid
Anymore
The price I’ve paid
Left me sore

It’s time, it’s right, it’s fine... Sunshine !
My time, my life is right… Sunshine !

I needed some extra time
Just a little more time
I needed some extra time
To put you out of my mind
Out of my mind

Track Name: Walk Away In The Sun
Walk Away In The Sun

Spread your love through all races
Discover new faces
Abuse of your smile as a lover
Before this game is over

Walk away in the sun
Walk away in the sun
Walk away in the sun
Walk away in the sun

We shouldn’t break into a run
Set the wheels into motion
You’ve got to believe in making love
Push the doors to evolve

It won’t take forever
Before we break down the power

Walk away in the sun
Walk away in the sun
Walk away in the sun
Walk away in the sun

Track Name: Bling Bling
Bling Bling

It smells like rotten flesh, burning tyres
You’re feeling well and so fresh
But your aim has backfired
I’ve never seen that before
What are you waiting for?

Bling bling in your head
Turn around turn around
Dressed in red
Turn around turn around

Last call is coming
But you stay with your desire
There’s no hell, no heaven,
There’s only fire
Heaven is in human being
Not in something addicting

Bling bling in your head
Turn around turn around
Dressed in red
Turn around turn around

You’ll have to survive
Fuck this generic life
Be confident, beware
You are your best enemy

I call your name
Show you the game
Always the same, the same… no answer

Bling bling in your head
Turn around turn around
Dressed in red
Turn around turn around

Track Name: Circle
Circle

A baby’s crying I open my eyes
Clouds over a leaden sky
It feels like I didn’t sleep
Drag myself to the world of living
And I feel down, so down
Looking for the sparkle
That’ll trigger my day
TV’s on pouring its usual crap
A new day begins

It’s a circle
I can’t get away from it
A vicious circle
Round and round my head

A faint glow tries to break into that greyness
It’s hard to believe when you’re surrounded by emptiness
What’s left to do that has not been done?
I’ve fought a battle that I could never have won
I promised you everlasting love
A gift that came from above
Now I look back and I’m confused
I shouldn’t have lost track with you
A baby’s crying, life goes on and on

It’s a circle
I can’t get away from it
A vicious circle
Round and round my head

Track Name: For All I Never Had
For All I Never Had

I won’t wait for you today
I’ll let you wake up
Sleep your night away
You took me way down
Put me into reverse
I’ll let you wake up
Find another girl, I know

Leaving for the world
Craving for the world
For all I never had
Never again I swear
I don’t know why you never did try

I was a failure without you
Way to much afraid to let you pass
How could I ever dream again, I don’t know
Took me seven years to understand

Leaving for the world
Craving for the world
For all I never had
Never again I swear
Tell me why you never did try

Leaving for the world
Craving for the world
For all I never had
Never again I swear
I don’t know why you never did try

Leaving for the world
Craving for the world
For all I never had

Track Name: Benediction
Benediction

All my questions gather round
All the answers can’t be found
What’s led us to this place and time
What’s gotten in this heart of mine

And if there’s no tomorrow
All we have is here and now
Never mind the stars up in the sky
Never mind the when, the where, the why

Can you hear what’s in my eyes
Can you feel what I don’t say
Can you see what’s in my heart
Will you promise me you’ll stay

How can a softly given touch
Speak loudly in a fevered rush
What is the message I should take
Your eyes they seem afraid to make

Some say that pain’s the only way
To find a happiness that stays
But I believe in lasting love
A benediction, from above

Can you hear what’s in my eyes
Can you feel what I don’t say
Can you see what’s in my heart
Will you promise me you’ll stay

Track Name: A World To Live In
A World To Live In

We talk the same words
So far away from your views
When I come to think of you
My heart’s in real protest
Why should you make a difference?
Human race has no colour
And you’re free to spread toxin out in the ghettos
I need a world to live in

What’s wrong with your mind, doctor
Life has a right that you can’t take away
What’s wrong with your mind
You get paid to carry on that shame

They almost ran you down
But Justice couldn’t hold you
Is it true you can go back
To work at this madness
Someday you’ll meet your fate
Your crimes against humanity
Won’t be put aside,
They will come and catch you
I need a world to live in

What’s wrong with your mind, doctor
Life has a right that you can’t take away
What’s wrong with your mind, doctor
You get paid to carry on that shame

I need a world to live in
We need a world to live in

What’s wrong with your mind, doctor
Life has a right that you can’t take away
What’s wrong with your mind, doctor
You get paid to carry on that shame
