How d'you turn a fire into mounds of snow? How d'you teach an icicle to burn? How d'you make somebody fall in love with you If they can't even love you in return? How d'you make a desert from an ocean bed? How d'you turn a rainbow black and white? How d'you make somebody fall in love with you If there's no spark to flicker into light? How can you feel it? How can you care? How can you love if love is not there? How can you feel it? How can you care? How can you love if love is not there? How d'you build a palace on the sun, my dear? How d'you send an astronaut to Mars? How d'you make somebody fall in love with you If they can't see it written in the stars?

Here we are, as the years go by Drifting on down life's alibi Watching on, as the minutes die And I think of you What if we could have learned to love? Would you be here, would that have been enough? Am I the one you're still dreaming of? And I think of you Do you remember all the songs they used to play? Do you remember every second would last a day? Do you remember how the world just seemed so simple When I think of yesterday Now the moments fade away... But that was then, shadows in the past Time moves on, a love not meant to last I wish the hours didn't move so fast And I think of you Do you remember all the songs they used to play? Do you remember every second would last a day? Do you remember how the world just seemed so simple When I think of yesterday Now the moments fade away... So where are you now? The songs of our lives So where are you now? The music has died Do you remember all the songs they used to play? Do you remember every second would last a day? Do you remember how the world just seemed so simple When I think of yesterday Now the moments fade away... Do you remember all the songs they used to play? Do you remember every second would last a day? Do you remember how the world just seemed so simple When I think of yesterday Now the moments fade away...

I don't know how you make me feel the way I do The way you make it seem there's only me and you 'Cause when you're gone I feel I'm falling to the ground Like I'm lost and I am waiting to be found I don't know why you want to love me like you do Why you always seem to want to hold me when I'm blue It's like you seem to know just what I'm going through 'Cause you are everything and everything is you There's something magical about you when you smile It's like it lights the room and warms me for a while You give me hope and such a strength I never knew Cause you are everything and everything is you

All the people, all the noise All the crazy girls and boys Makes me want to fly away Far away from here Everybody moves too fast The sudden pace will never last Makes me want a holiday It's time to disappear Restless nights and broken days Stumbling through a troubled haze Makes me want to close my eyes And dream of foreign lands Slamming doors and senseless fights Spinning stars and flashing lights Makes me want to change my life For walks along the sand So put me on an airplane Fly me to Mexico Long stay, Paris or Monaco Airplane, take me all over the world So let me fly long-haul, over the ocean blue Sunlight, making our dreams come true Airplane, take me all over the world Filled-up hours, no time to breathe No chance to show what you believe Makes me want to break these chains Escape for just a while Empty hearts and stagnant halls Surrounded by these growing walls Makes me want a change of scene To give me back my smile So put me on an airplane Fly me to Mexico Long stay, Paris or Monaco Airplane, take me all over the world So let me fly long-haul, over the ocean blue Sunlight, making our dreams come true Airplane, take me all over the world Fly away Leave the past behind you, behind you Fly away Let the future design you, design you So put me on an airplane Fly me to Mexico Long stay, Paris or Monaco Airplane, take me all over the world So let me fly long-haul, over the ocean blue Sunlight, making our dreams come true Airplane, take me all over the world

If I could learn to love you Dream on the stars above you Maybe I'd see another view If I could learn to love If you could learn to love me Give me your heart and trust me The key would be yours to uncover me If you could learn to love If I could learn how to feel something for you You could be more than a friend If you could just feel the magic that I do You would no longer pretend If I could learn how to feel something for you You could be more than a friend If you could just feel the magic that I do You would no longer pretend If I could learn to love you Dream on the stars above you Maybe I'd see another view If I could learn to love If you could learn to love If I could learn to love

Is there something I should know? Is there something you should say? Is there somewhere I should go? Am I getting in your way? Is there something that I've missed? Is there someone on your mind? Was it something when we kissed? Or maybe I'm just going blind? Is there something in my eye Or am I crying once again? Is there something I can do? Is there something we can mend? Is there something in our love Like poisoned blood that tries to flow? Is there something you should say? Is there something I should know? Is there something in your eye Or are you crying once again? Is there something I can do? Is there something we can mend? Is there something in your heart That stops the love that tries to grow? Is there something you should say? Is there something I should know? Is there something in our love Like poisoned blood that tries to flow? Is there something you should say? Is there something I should know?

The untiring Joe Moore is back with a new reference from THE YEARNING, in his endless search for beauty in music. In fact, some of the songs on this mini album were conceived as continuations of the songs included on the last album, “Evening Souvenirs”, after the adventures with Lia Pamina and THE PERFECT KISS.

Accompanied again by Maddie Dobie and Mark Kiff, Joe Moore continues addressing his usual inclinations: the chanson, chamber pop, bossa, and above all, the perfect song. And once again, he is handling all the production work, the recording, and the songwriting, and is playing almost all the instruments. “How Do You Make Somebody Fall In Love?” insists precisely on everything that “Evening Souvenirs” aimed toward: the fragile delicateness of Claudine Longet and Françoise Hardy, elevated by baroque arrangements and exquisite nuances. “Do You Remember?” is pure energy, festive and agile samba with orchestration that evokes musicals (that bridge that reminds us so much of “La La Land”) with a nostalgic look at how much music has changed. Side A closes with “Everything Is You” - elegance with echoes of Astrud Gilberto and Elis Regina, and that sax solo that Stan Getz would have been happy to have written. A beautiful bossa piece dedicated to his family.

And the Brazilian breezes that are the clear stars of this album also open Side B, with “Airplane (Fly Me To Mexico)”, the song that the title of this Mini-CD Digipak and 10” Mini-LP comes from. The song opens as if it were on Broadway, Gal Costa takes over the excitement of this mid-tempo, suddenly the song breaks out into swing and jazz, to ultimately go back to bossa and confirm its return to the real world. “Learn To Love” is a duet like those sung by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood, but Joe Moore’s wonderful vocal intervention harmonizing with Maddie Dobie is so amazing it could bring us to collaborations between Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan or Kylie Minogue and Nick Cave. It’s baroque pop, a waltz with echoes of Shostakovich, the continuation of where “Nightingale” left on the previous album. The same way “Something I Should Know” brings back the story laid out in “The Moment Your Heart Would Say Goodbye” through a piano piece and a sad, emotional, hopeless voice.

This is the latest delicacy to add to the collection the Joe Moore offers us. He is without a doubt an artist with a calling, who will make an indelible mark on all lovers of chamber pop.
