Original release 1993. Added to 1997 cd re-issue: Everybody Say Love (Radio Version), Everybody Say Love (The Love Club Mix)

Single/Video: Everybody Say Love

Mitsou's first (and only) all English release. Recorded with a budget of $500,000, however, got caught up in politics going on within Hollywood Records at the time and was never actually released by them, but by Mitsou's Canadian label, Tox, and then only in Canada. Tempted has some weak moments and showcases a fairly Americanized Mitsou, but it grows on you the more you listen to it. She has since admitted having this album be shelved was the lowest point of her career, as her biggest dream musically was to be successful in the United States. The album was eventually made available to the USA in 1997, when her entire CD catalogue was re-issued by Unidisc.

Lyrics

Everybody Say Love
L'amour avec vous?
Je t'aime
Are you ready for me?
Let's go baby

Love is the word
Haven't you heard
Visualize the love inside
It's gonna take you high
It is the message
Listen to your heart
Vocalize the love inside
Everybody say love

People get ready
And learn to love yourself
Age of Aquarius
About to ring your bell
Love one another
No need to fuss and fight
Give love to get love, that's right
Everybody say love

Come on, are you ready now?
Everybody say love

"Say, love, I was hopin' you would see me
Thoughts of you painting pretty pictures like the sea
See me standing here with open arms
How about us gettin' but what
You say you need stability, but hey
I got the money
To get sweets for my sweet and sugar for your honey
It's easy like a Sunday morning
So come on and watch money say love"

Everybody say love

Send out some love to somebody today
Your father, your mother, your sister, your brother
Love heals all pain, yah
You got that right

Everybody say love

 

Loving Me Is Not A Sin
Close your eyes to see me better
Love will always be... mystery
Discover me tonight 'cause loving me is not a sin
You'll see

OOh lovin' me is not a sin, not a sin

Every now and then, I wish I could just let go
Boy I wanna be closer to you
More than just a friend
Don't you know I want you so
Oh you make me weak, gotta have you

OOh I just want to hold you only for a night
It don't matter baby, if it's wrong or right, ooh baby

(Chorus
) OOh lovin' me is not a sin, no just as long as you mean it
OOh lovin' me is not a sin, no just as long as you feel it

I believe in love, baby ain't no need to wait
Take me in your arms, ooh let it happen
It feels so good, baby say you're gonna stay
Kiss me in the dark, feel my passion

OOh I just want to hold you only for a night
Take me over baby, love me through the night, ooh baby

(Chorus)

OOh lovin' me is not a sin, no seulement si tu crois en moi
OOh lovin' me is not a sin, no just as long as you feel it

Sometimes I reach out for you, just to let you know I care
And sometimes I want to bare my soul to you
And dare you to come into my world

OOh I just want to hold you only for a night
It don't matter baby, if it's wrong or right, ooh baby
So whatcha gonna do?

(Chorus)

OOh, lovin' me is not a sin, no
Close your eyes to see me better, come into my world
OOh lovin' me is not a sin, no just as long as you feel it
Feel it

 

Sweet Nothings
Come on, let's do it
Come on, don't give me sweet nothings

You whisper words softly into my ears
You touch me slow then pull away as if you're scared
Don't play me shy, spare me all the chivalry
What I want from you is nothing close to dignity

(Chorus)
Come on, baby
Don't give me sweet nothings
Come on, baby
Be good to me
Come on, baby
Oh, please give me something
Come on, baby
Don't give me sweet nothings
Sweet nothings

You kiss me soft when you know I want it hard
Don't be so nice, be the man I know you are
Don't you understand, can't you feel the need in me
Honey, get a clue sweet nothing isn't what I need

(Chorus)

I can't stand to be this close to you
Holding back is not what I'm into
Please let go, give yourself to me
Your deep kiss all that I could need
Come on, come on, come on and just do it
Don't be shy 'cause I'll help you through it
Just let go, come give me something
I want your touch and not your sweet nothings

(Chorus)

 

Father Angel
I know your blue eyes they're just like a mirror
I see your smile from another shore
I think I feel you off in the distance
Trying to say things you couldn't before

I wanna thank you for making me feel like I do
I wanna thank you
Father Angel

Oh, risky freedom see what you've done
You've left a silence in my mind
Smiles of summer and flower children
Who's the one that's been left behind

I wanna thank you for making me feel like I do
I wanna thank you

(Chorus)
Father Angel, take me for a ride
Father Angel, won't you put your heart close to mine
Father Angel, won't you hold me tight
Father Angel

I have a garden with memories seeded
I watch the flowers as they bloom and wane
Life is the answer, love against reason
Let's be together 'fore it all slips away

I wanna thank you for making me feel like I do I wanna thank you

(Chorus)

 

Koo Koo
Now let's get serious about laughing, Ha! ha! ha!
Don't be scared let yourself go let's pretend it's a freak show
Then you can love me, let's pretend it's a freak show
Then you can love me, teach me things I don't know
Let's say that we're kids spending all our time laughing
On the phone in bed pretend you're my girl friend
I might dress you up lend you my Todd Oldham
Add a little makeup, you make a beautiful man

(Chorus)
Are you nuts? Koo Koo
Are you crazy for me like I'm crazy for you
Are you nuts? Koo Koo
Boyfriend, you'd better be 'cause I'm crazy, too

Now let's get serious about home, work, home work? No way!
Just relax and free your mind, go to work another time
Then you can love me, I'm the boss today it seems
Then you can love me, so you do as I please
Let's jump, let's scream and blow each other's mind
Everyday for a lifetime
A smile a day keeps the doctor away
Monday, Tuesday everyday is a crazy day

(Chorus)

 

Slipping Away
Baby, can't change it
My baby can't change it

Thought I knew where I was going
Following that straight and narrow road
Things can only get better and better
That's the way the story's told

Someone sent these things to try us
We're not supposed to question why
But if I'm young enough to hurt
Someone tell me that I'm not too old to cry

(Chorus)
You think you got it made
Not an easy game to play
Is it worth the price you paid
'Cause you feel life's slipping away
No time to be afraid
Of tomorrow's yesterdays
We forget the things we say
'Cause you feel like slipping away

Being pulled along from both sides now
I feel I'm losing all control
Brought into situations
Don't really want to be responsible

(Chorus)

Baby can't change it
My baby can't change it

(Chorus)

How can I change the world in one day?
It wouldn't matter anyway
'Cause you feel like slipping away

 

Provocative
One dirty look is all it takes
With just one glace they seal their fate
A slight of hand and they're all yours
It's much too late because they're down for the cause
We love to play the kiss, the chase
You may not think it, but we all think the same
To everyone the heart is weak
And all because of the attention we seek

Everybody someday wants it naughty but nice
But, baby, if you step to me you'd better think twice
Don't let the fashion fool you
I'm not the one to do you
I just wanna be the flame that burns tonight

(Chorus)
Provocative
Is what we wanna be
Provocative
A motion that could bend your knees
Provocative
And get into your system
Provocative
Taking you the distance

Could it be him or is it me
Who is responsible and where could all this lead
'Cause I don't know, don't really care
Let's just be happy for the time that we share

Everybody someday wants it naughty but nice
But, baby, if you step to me you'd better think twice
Don't let the fashion fool you
I'm not the one to do you
I just wanna be the flame that burns tonight

(Chorus)

Provocative
What donít you see in eyes that tease?
Provocative
There is so much more to see
Provocative
It's what I'm gonna be
Provocative
Hey, can you handle me?

Just bass, just like that

Everybody someday wants it naughty but nice
But, baby, if you step to me you'd better think twice
Don't let the fashion fool you
I'm not the one to do you
I just wanna be the flame that burns tonight

(Chorus)

Provocative
Itís all you gotta do
Provocative
It feels so good
Provocative
Itís all Iím gonna be
Provocative
Check it

The kiss, the chase, the taste
Wonít you tell me some sexy shit, anything

 

Can You Love A Woman?
Don't be scared, I'm taking care of you tonight

Don't try to fight
Don't try to fight the rising sea
Catch the wave I wanna run away with you
Holding hands the chemistry's obscene
Lying here beside you in my dreams

Oh, baby you'll surrender
Your touches are so mental to me
Do me do me
I'll take you under
Replace your boyish fantasies with reality
Skin deep

Can you love a woman?
Can you really really love a woman?

Close your eyes
Let's get in a lighter sense of being
Special kind of love I want for you babe
Here you are, your silhouette's so real
I can feel your soul making love to me

Here we go again, will it ever end
Fill my every need
'Till we're in the black of early morning
You've never been so far before, give me more
Feel so good to me yeah

Can you love a woman?
Can you really really love a woman?

Here we go again, will it ever end
Fill my every need
'Till we're in the black of early morning
You've never been so far before, give me more
Feel so good to me yeah

Can you love a woman?
Can you really really love a woman?

 

I Can't Love You Anymore
There are days and nights
I always will remember
Sharing love and life together was enough

You've been there for me in body, mind and spirit
And I have cared for you in more ways than you know
But what I have to say to you just fills my heart with pain
So much that it's hard for me to say

(Chorus)
I can't love you anymore
Though it hurts me I must let you go
And so goodbye, mon amour

Please believe, to me you will always matter
'Cause what we had was good, and that will never change
But I've got to go and walk another path now
We know in life that nothing ever stays the same

I could pretend and lead you on
But I can't live that lie
So here's the reason why

(Chorus)

I canít love you anymore
Though it hurts me I must close the door

(Chorus)

 

Next X
L'amour toujours l'amour
Pourquoi pas juste un peu de passion
I know you're like me, you're a freedom baby
Please donít say the ďLĒ word
I'm sorry what's your name again?

I wanna put you on
I wanna put you on
Come on hurry on
I wanna put you on

Today is your lucky day
Got a game for us to play
You don't need a resumť
Just give me your love, n'k
'Cause I need a man who strong
'Cause Mitsou ain't never home
So, if you can handle this
You could be my Next X

You could be my Next X

See you on my jock
He's watchin' me
Searchin' for my love
Don't try to charm me
I just got rid of my man today
You can keep your relationship
'Cause it never lasts anyway

You could be my Next X

I want you
I need you
Gotta have you
Gotta put you on
Le temps qui passe
Nos regards se croisent

You could be my Next X

Please donít say the ďLĒ word

You could be my Next X

 

I Really Love You
Hey, you, this song's for you

I really love you
I feel youíre so far away
And it's crazy sometimes
How much I can see through your mind

Stay, you don't have to
We're always free anyway
So I got to relay
'Fore it all blows away
That I love you
I really need you
And don't you forget it now

Don't you remember you told me you loved me
And how I held you so tight when you cried
'Cause I can barely believe the way you make me feel so alive

Baby, I love you

Don't you remember you told me you loved me
And how I held you so tight when you cried
'Cause I can barely believe the way you make me feel so alive

Baby, I love you
I feel you're so far away
But I know how sometimes
Seems the sun only shines on our yesterdays

Just let me hold you
Have I never told you
Babe, I wish all my life
That our love feels so right as it does today

I really love you
Baby, I really love you

Donít leave me
I really love you
So right
Baby, I love you

Just, please remember
Itís the way I feel
I really love you

 

My Cherie Amour
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

My cherie amour
Lovely as a summer day
My cherie amour
Distant as the milky way
My cherie amour
Pretty little one that I adore
You're the only one my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine

Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

In a cafť, I see your face among the crowd
I am near you
I share your little distant cloud
My cherie amour
Won't you tell me how could you ignore
That behind that little smile I wore
How I wish that you were mine

Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
