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

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

Briefly 05:11
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

Aquaplaning 07:03
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

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.
