Op ‘Q3 (the Quest part 3)' staan 7 typische Alan Lauris-‘Electrosingersongwriterpop’ -nummers, en daarbij nog twee remixes als bonus. Electrosingersongwriterpop??? Ja, teken een vierkant en zet bij de hoeken Leonard Cohen, Pet shop boys, Kraftwerk en Eddy Christiani, en je kunt elk Alan Lauris liedje ergens in die ruimte plaatsen. Dat is Electrosingersongwriterpop!

Benieuwd naar wat vooraf ging? Beluister de compilatie ‘one to twelve’ met een selectie van 20 nummers uit de periode 2001 tot 2012 hier: alanlauris.bandcamp.com/album/one-to-twelve-compilation of gebruik de QR-code op de CD-hoes.

Track Name: Dedicate
Music and Lyrics by Alan Lauris

You dedicate your life to creation
You dedicate your life to the best
You dedicate your life to your nation
You dedicate your life to the quest

A life’s a collection of moments
And every moment ‘s all right
Surely you don’t want to miss one
So you dedicate, you dedicate your life
You dedicate your life, You dedicate you life
Every moment again and again you dedicate your life

It’s all about paying attention
It’s all about looking around
When you dedicate your life to the sunrise
Then you dedicate your life to a sound
You dedicate your life, You dedicate you life
Every moment again and again you dedicate your life

Every moment again and again and again and again and again and again…You dedicate your life!
Every moment again and again and again and again and again and again…You dedicate your life!

You dedicate your life to your business
You dedicate your life to your car
You dedicate your life to the dishes
You dedicate your life to the stars

It’s all a about being connected
When you dedicate your life to the light
You dedicate your life to your smartphone
Then you dedicate your life to your wife
You dedicate your life, You dedicate your life

Every moment again and again you dedicate your life
Every moment again and again you dedicate your life
Every moment again and again you dedicate your life

You dedicate your life to the weather, the lonely, a sportscar, politics, the good cause, a boys band, the future, your music, the helpless, the laundry, your children, the answer, your passion, a journey, a phonecall, your breakfast, a party, a blackbird, a program
Track Name: I have what it takes
Music by Alan Lauris
Lyrics by John Coughlan

I've made mistakes all over the place
That blew up in my face
Yes they blew up in my face
Not knowing when to cut to the chase
When to put on the brakes
Or when to pick up the pace
I never care what others may say
They don't understand
O, it's not in their hands
They cannot see what I can see
What it means to me
Having you here

Tell me
I have what it takes
Have what it takes
To do it my own way

But now despite the bruises and aches
I remain in the race
Yes I remain in the race
By knowing when to balance the haste
When to make my own break
And to create my own space
So I don’t care what others may say
They have no idea
‘Bout how I deal with the fear
And with the pain I can’t explain
Living for a dream
Living this dream

Tell me
I have what it takes
Have what it takes
To do it my own way

I love you, yes I do
I want you
My singular guiding light
Bright throughout the night

Tell me
I have what it takes
Have what it takes
To do it my own way
Track Name: Briefly
Music by Alan Lauris
Lyrics by John Coughlan

I lost
All sense of time
With you on my mind
It was all I could do
To keep up with you
I didn't watch the hours
I succumbed to your powers
All sense of time gone
But you were ready to move on
Unbeknown to me...

I knew you oh so briefly
I could feel you breathe
As you lay there beneath me
I could feel you seethe
As you lay there beneath me
I could feel you seethe
I knew you oh so briefly
I could feel you breathe

I woke
To a half-empty bed
Dreams still in my head
The room left all neat
Not a hair on my sheets
Not a thing out of place
But the look on my face
I looked for a note
Breath caught in my throat
A note on the floor…

I knew you oh so briefly
I could feel you breathe
As you lay there beneath me
I could feel you seethe
As you lay there beneath me
I could feel you seethe
I knew you oh so briefly
I could feel you breathe
Track Name: Following Albert
I’m following Albert on a daily basis
Through his awesome tweets and his facebook page

I’m following Albert cause I like his style
With the coolest friends and his perfect smile

I’m following Albert cause his life is dope
All the things he does, somehow it gives me hope

Yes, I’m following Albert cause I’m not that cool
I want to have his life, now I am just a fool

Track Name: Aquaplaning
Music by Alan Lauris
Lyrics by John Coughlan

One minute
I'm staring out the windscreen
and it's raining, raining, raining
next minute
knuckles straining
I'm aquaplaning

Aquaplaning
I'm not feigning
not complaining
just aquaplaning
just aquaplaning

The second stretches
as my mind reaches to the edges
pictures and thoughts flash rapidly back and forth
as I spin, don't know south don't know north
and I'm aquaplaning
aquaplaning
spinning
conscious mind waning
lost control
taking its toll
almost not caring
a truck horn blaring

Aquaplaning
I'm not feigning
not complaining
just aquaplaning
just aquaplaning

then I'm still
saying out loud
“ do what you will “
in a pocket, a cocoon
resigned to my fate
was this my high noon
on the interstate
Track Name: Following Albert (Extended Papadapa Mix)
I’m following Albert on a daily basis
Through his awesome tweets and his facebook page

I’m following Albert cause I like his style
With the coolest friends and his perfect smile

I’m following Albert cause his life is dope
All the things he does, somehow it gives me hope

Yes, I’m following Albert cause I’m not that cool
I want to have his life, now I am just a fool
