Last night Last night I cried myself to sleep Last night you tore me down so deep It’s not that I believe or deem alike It’s not that I agree or that I like it I will never understand why Why you behave so wry and sly What I did so wrong What I said so loud Why you can’t forgive Last night I cried myself to sleep Last night you spat on me you creep My heart is aching but my tears are dry My head is working but my soul can fly I can’t forget your words, forget your eyes I can’t forget you left me high and dry What you did to me, what you said to me No I can’t forgive You say, you say, you say… I don’t belong here But you don’t know me I won’t forgive you The way you treated me X2 Last night I cried myself to sleep Last night I cried…

Hope Everyone knows what’s on your mind Everyone knows that you don’t mind But I hope that you will stay I saw you cry what’s on your mind? I saw you leave, I saw you blind But I hope that you will stay And I hate, hate, hate, hate it hard when you’re this way Nobody knows what’s on my mind Nobody knows that I do mind And I hope that I can stay You saw me cry, you saw me blind You saw me leave but do you mind? Do you mind it if I stay? And I hate, hate, hate, hate it hard when I’m this way One day we’ll go to a new world No, you don’t need to say a word And I hope that we will stay One day once there, once we are gone Forever there in a new home Oh I hope that we will stay And I hope, hope, hope, hope so hard that we will stay You know that I’m not to be blamed When days that pass are full of grey One day we’ll go to a new world No, you don’t need to say a word And I hope that we will stay One day once there, once we are gone Forever there in a new home Oh I hope that we will stay

Daydream I know you never meant to let me down I know you never meant to make me cry That all you wanted was a crown A crown for me, a crown that would be mine A crown for me, a crown that would be mine What I need is just another day Yeah what I need is just another chance I need you to not fly away I need you to, remain, to stay I need you to, remain, to stay I’m feeling like I’m always at your feet I’m feeling like I still want to repeat Repeat to feel this butterfly Repeat to feel, feel just so high Repeat to feel, feel just so high But you failed me, baby Yeah you fooled me, honey And that’s my story, oh what a sad story Yeah that’s my story, yeah what a sad story

The Sorry Guy Here I am again Waiting at the kitchen table Waiting for you to come back With your sad, sad story Here you are again Waiting for me to complain Waiting for me to snivel Waiting to go to hell And the children are sleeping Mouth open, gently snoring Deeply ignoring That you were fleeing Once again away from their little wings I know you didn’t mean to be mean Yeah I know But here I am waiting Fucked up here ‘cause you ain’t clean! Here you are again Saying that you love me Saying that you’re sorry Sorry that you fooled me Here you are crying Crying for me to save you To save your sorry ass From burning down in Hell And the children are sleeping Mouth open, gently snoring Deeply ignoring That you were fleeing Once again away from their little wings I know you didn’t mean to be mean Yeah I know But here I am waiting Fucked up here ‘cause you ain’t clean! Once again away from their little wings I know you didn’t mean to be mean Yeah I know But here I am waiting Fucked up here ‘cause you ain’t clean!

Dying Man You’re on your dying bed And you know, now, now that it’s too late now You can only feel the pain Yeah, you can only feel the shame You gave him lies, old man! You let him die… Never knew who he was You never even got to meet him once Too proud, you were, yeah, too proud To ever offer him your selfish hand You gave him lies, old man! You let him die… The man was your son but you never got to know him The man was your son but you never became friends The man was your son but you never were his father The man was your son but you never weighed him up You just left him to his sorrow, his pain A skinflint you were, when he was too plain You just left him to his sorrow, his pain A poor hunchback he was, waiting for the rain You just left him to his sorrow, his pain A skinflint you were, when he was too plain You just left him to his sorrow, his pain A poor hunchback he was, waiting for the rain You let him die, old man… You let him die…

Mama Why didn’t you ever go away? Did you know there would be better days? Or did you think you had no other way? Or fear you’d find no other place? Did you think that your life would be over? Or that you would have to live under cover? That you’d have to face all of the others? To run away all over? CHORUS I don’t know how you played it Mama, I don’t know how you made it Mama You played it, you made it, you won it for us You played it, you made it for us I don’t know why you stayed Mama I don’t know what you prayed for Mama You stayed, you prayed, you yielded for us Couldn’t get out of here for us Do you think it really was worth it? Do you think he ever was so worthy? Of everything that you did for him? Of all the love you felt for him? Why would it be good enough for you? Why think you weren’t good enough for better Didn’t you trust in you or the others Did you feel out of the blue? CHORUS Mama you lived for us Mama you cared for us You never let us down No matter rain or shine No matter pain or high You always raged our wars Oh Mama oh oh oh oh oh oh… Oh Mama oh oh oh oh oh oh… CHORUS I don’t know why you stayed Mama

Lighthouse I could have smiled a thousand times Could have laughed at all the jokes I could have grued at all the rhymes Could have hurt at all the pokes But I’ll leave the lighthouse For I have no other choice I know out is my voice I’ll leave the lighthouse But I’ll leave the lighthouse For I have no other choice I know out is my voice I’ll leave the lighthouse I could have lived here by the sea Could have loved you by your shores I could have tracked you down the streets Could have knocked hard on your door I never really got to know you, got to know you I never really got to see you in a different shade of light I never really got to know you, got to know you I never really got to see you I could have gone high, could have died Could have flown up in the sky I could have stormed out, could have cried Could have asked you why oh why? And I could have lived here by the sea

about

Faire des chansons comme on fabrique un objet, avec patience, avec ses mains, des voix, des sons simples : « Backyard », c’est l’arrière-cour où l’on se retrouve pour inventer des histoires, imaginer leurs décors et composer leurs bandes originales. Se projeter ensuite dans l’intimité d’un « Folk Club » pour interpréter ces chansons en tout spontanéité.
D’inspiration folk-blues et aux accents country, Backyard Folk Club repose sur un duo vocal féminin, dont les voix se croisent et se répondent tout au long des chansons, porté par une orchestration minimaliste de guitares, banjo, harmonica et percussions.
Après un premier disque, « The Broken Spoon » paru en 2014, Backyard Folk Club est de retour en 2019 avec un nouvel opus, « Daydream ». 
Plus orchestré, il conserve les accents folks qui ont su charmer le public de Backyard Folk Club, en alliant énergie et rêves éveillés. En onze chansons allant de la ballade folk au piano-voix en passant par des ambiances plus oniriques, deux voix de femmes entremêlées portent un regard cru, intègre, attendri parfois, sur leur propre condition. 
Des instruments que l’on avait peu entendus au Folk Club auparavant - guitare électrique et batterie - viennent ici et là densifier les compositions. Cependant, le groupe ne se dépare pas de la chaleur et de la simplicité qui font sa signature, et vient ajouter aux guitares et banjos les teintes d’un ocarina, d’un orgue ou d’un violon, faisant de l’ensemble un patchwork folk captivant.

In Daydream, their debut album, Backyard Folk Club venture to peep out of the scope of Folk songs. As a result, these 11 songs range from piano-vocals through to folk ballads sometimes blended with more dreamlike atmospheres. They are driven by two female voices, constantly interweaving, casting a crude - yet honest and sometimes moved - look upon their condition. Instruments that had little been heard in the Folk Club - drums and electric guitars - make their appearance and add density to the songs. Nonetheless, Backyard Folk Club stick to what has been their trademark since their first EP The Broken Spoon (2015) : warmth and simplicity. And by adding touches of ocarina, organ and violin, they have made this opus a captivating Folk patchwork.
