Lyrics
CHATEAU ANTIBES W&M FRANCISCUS HENRI
Albert Music

Chateau Antibes
Picasso walking.
I walked where Picasso walked
I asked “Where is the master”
Someone said
“He’s dead you know”
I turned around and he said
“Hello”

Walking through Nice
Henri Matisse
I walked where Henri walked
I asked “Where is the master”
Someone said
“He’s dead you know”
I turned around and he said
“Hello”

And all my dreams are Mediterranean blue
None of my dreams came true
The trouble with dreaming though it doesn’t seem fair
It’s never quite the same
When you get there.

I walked where Grace Kelly walked
I asked where is the Princess
Someone said
“She’s dead you know”

Awesome texture!
Where is the master? Indeed.
Thank you for sharing your talents with us here. Gorgeous song... Much more than melancholy, wonderful work!

The eye of the artist! Beautifully done. The new keyboard is obviously working well - nice intertwining of different instruments. Warm, intimate vocal. It's great, Franc!

Thanks Peter
I have to admit to it being a song a few years old now,
Im hoping inspiration in the now hits soon.

I really like this Franc
Such a warm musical environment you've set here - very evocative of my time in the south of France when my daughter was living in Toulon. The concept and execution of your lyrics are very, very clever, and your vocal and backing sit perfectly for me.
What an excellent post.
Cheers from the Sapphire Coast,
Neil

so you've been there
well you know the place still carries those splendid people in the breeze.
Strangely enough the song came out of a moment in Monaco driving along the road where Grace Kelly was killed in a car crash.
An odd sense of mortality perhaps.

captured
The first note captured me....Classic production. What a spectacular voice you have with the close and personal production. Bitter sweet ....You are fantastic at what you do..solute.

Breathtaking
Evocative piece. I love the way you record your songs. Never overdone, no wasted notes, but lots of little gems in there. Reminds me of Nick Drake but with sensible tuning for once.

Walking in their footsteps
These masters may be dead .. but they live on in our memories and songs.

Or something like that.

You have a wonderful sensibility of mixing tribute (praise to the masters) and melancholy (they're dead you know). That comes through your distilled lyrics .. and especially your refined delivery. Good stuff!
