I'm going down to the Sycamore tree I bet you won't be far behind me Follow me down to the Sycamore tree Oh baby that's where you will find me Shh, don't make a sound It's our secret we have found Let's go down to the Sycamore tree Where there's nobody else around Take me down to the Sycamore tree I want to feel your arms around me Kiss me under the Sycamore tree I want to feel your love surround me Shh, don't make a sound Let's keep both feet on the ground Let's go down to the Sycamore tree Where there's nobody else around

I've been here since yesterday When you left and went away To a place that I can't be Now I'm a mess, just look at me I'm nobody's baby Nobody's girl Nobody's darling Now you're out of my world Read your note a thousand times Trying to read between the lines Yet what is left that I can do But see a world through tones of blue? I'm nobody's baby Nobody's girl Nobody's darling Now you're out of my world I'm nobody's baby Nobody's girl Nobody's darling Now you're out of my world

So when I'm feeling lost and I am all on my own You always show, the way to go And when I have to say goodbye or put down the phone You always know, I love you so 'Cause every time it seems as if I'm falling apart You wrap your love around my heart So when I'm feeling down about the way that I am You always see, the good in me And when I feel like giving up and life is a scam You always see, the way to be 'Cause just when all the chaos is beginning to start You wrap your love around my heart When I have my doubts you make me sure And when I'm inside out you're so secure I don't want to live without your love so wrap it right around my heart 'Cause every time it seems as if I'm falling apart You wrap your love around my heart 'Cause every time it seems as if I'm falling apart You wrap your love around my heart

One Step 02:30
One step closer to you I am one kiss from making it two I keep dreaming of more But I'm one step closer than I was before One chance is all that I need And just one glance would give me a lead I'm still far from your shore but I'm One step closer than I was before Am I one step closer today Or two steps further away? One chance, when will it be? One dance could be waiting for me? Am I one step closer today Or two steps further away? One chance, when will it be? One dance could be waiting for me? One step closer to you I am one kiss from making it two I keep dreaming of more But I'm one step closer than I was before

We told you a few weeks ago about the new digital single by Lia Pamina, “Better Off Without You”, and now we’re here to introduce, as we told you we would, another new single. This time, it’s in 7” (500-copy numbered-limited-edition, transparent vinyl) format, starring the song “Sycamore Tree”, one of the best songs on her fantastic debut album “Love Is Enough”, and backed by three previously unreleased songs composed – like the majority of the album – by Joe Moore (THE YEARNING, THE PERFECT KISS).

“Sycamore Tree” is exquisite. The evanescent keyboards remind us of bands like THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and BROADCAST, while the classic spirit, the percussive bass and the clavichord take us to the psychedelic period of THE BEACH BOYS. Marvelous. “Nobody's Baby” fits into the sadder, more melancholic part that was already present on the album. Again, the clavichord and the piano take the lead on a song with baroque airs, which could perfectly be sung by a saddened, solitary Sylvie Vartan, while she sits by the window on a rainy evening. Once again, the elegance of Joe Moore’s arrangements takes things to the highest emotional levels. The B-side opens with spirit and pluck with “Wrap Your Love Around My Heart”, a pop-soul song with clear echoes of Dusty Springfield. And to wrap things up, “One Step” returns to the psychedelic, spacey airs of the first song, but moving more towards the “lounge” spirit of Hollywood singers like Doris Day. This is definitely a single that pays homage to a specific sound, made with great taste, celestially arranged, and that is capable of waking up the whole world’s melancholy in the sweetest way.

And as per usual, the video is directed by Coral and Javi of BAND À PART – the third leg of this infallible formula. Joe Moore’s songs and production, Lia Pamina’s glamour and delicious voice, and Coral and Javi’s evocative images.
