BE THERE © words & musicBirgit Cassis Staudt You are my friend When I can't be found your sun shines light in my night You are god sent When I am unbound Your eyes embrace me While you smile I swear I want to be there Living in trees is my habit Cause I'm too scared to calm down Speaking in tongues I’m a hermit keep branching out into my cloud I swear I want to be there Give me your hand to descend Please know I’m imperfect Daily I die The more I am living High in my lie I SWEAR I WANT TO BE THERE GIVE ME YOUR HAND TO DESCEND

KISS ME, I’M SUCH A MESS © words & music Cassis Birgit Staudt Wouldn’t you like it If I liked you a lot And if you didn’t have to guess Could I be candid Should I plot, I cannot tease you I confess What if I give you my address Would you think of me less? Kiss me, I’m such a mess Why are you playing So hard to get I bet at night you’re less uptight Maybe you pretend to be celibate as you know this fuels my appetite when in doubt should I undress? Then you’ll hesitate less Kiss me, I’m such a mess Mercy, mercy I am tipsy My head a circus Curled like a fetus What can I tell ya You crashed my karma Lose your umbrella I’m the rain splash, splash Only nerds stay dry Why wait till we’re 80 To enmesh, cause I am real and not a lay-away Please be soon my sweet success Or else I’ll die from this stress Kiss me, I’m such a mess

I’LL SUE YOU © words & music Cassis Birgit Staudt I’ll sue you You just broke my heart You’re so goddamn smart practice in prison your trash talk you said you’d be my man and my lover and my friend and my brother my bee keeper and soul mate undercover my lifelong pilot and motorcycle helmet my captain underwater and above I’ll sue you You just broke my heart You’re so goddamn smart Practice in prison your trash talk! Practice in prison your trash talk now I’m soul-sick crestfallen in love again like the crushed dead dove that carried letters to a place where no one’s ever home I’ll sue you You just broke my heart You’re so goddamn smart Practice in prison Your trash talk! Just cause I love red The fireman came to my bed Much too much into lips (Rather lower than upper) Ships and you make me seasick Ships and you make me seasick! I’ll sue U You just broke my heart You’re so goddamn smart Practice in prison your trash talk Practice in prison your trash I’ll sue you You just broke my heart And I’m on red alert Hurt hard (miss you movin’ me….)

IN THE VICINITY © music & lyrics Cassis Birgit Staudt You are all over me I feel your hidden fantasy Show me you are passionate Love can be sweet on rainy days Let me catch your falling face Please feel free to Casually kiss me on my knee and While you’re there Check out other places In the vicinity Trace the map of my body Discover my big galaxy Craters, Vulcanos Lose your gravity All in between my head and toe Meander in my meadow Please feel free To casually kiss me on my knee And while you’re there Check out other places In the vicinity

RIVER © words & music Cassis Birgit Staudt I love you, river Sun provide me strength You were so gentle Knew we had no time to lose Hey river, I had a lover back East River, you let me walk over water, river Love blesses you I see the sun on her path everyday And the moon follows her I see her shine and make shadows My mood swings with you Share with me some strength in the flux Or help me cry with your tears as rain Or help me cry with your tears as rain Please help me cry I could have drowned easily You were a challenge Let me face some hidden rocks Hey river, how many fish have you caught? River, you chase with haunting sounds, river Love blesses you! I see the sun on her path everyday And the moon follows her I see her shine and make shadows My mood swings with you Share with me some strength in the flux Or help me cry with your tears as rain Or help me cry with your tears as rain Please help me cry

OPEN THE BLINDS OF ONE HEART © words & music Cassis Birgit Staudt In the middle of the day Heaven went astray All the sudden Stormy clouds In the distance on display Blue space far away Out of reach Sheltering Sky Open the blinds of one heart Sheltering Sky Please try! When your eyes shine through my night Crushing in like waves of an ocean I’m alive Wanna dance with giant light Red heaven – purple night Dawn till dusk Sheltering Sky Open the blinds of one heart Sheltering Sky Please try!

INNER BLONDES © words & music Cassis Birgit Staudt Black Chinese hair Bothers her wishing she was blonde instead with curls she would be set always ugly – never pretty movies in her head always ugly – never pretty movies in her head Inner blondes Have more fun Inner blondes Sparkle within Inner blondes Kissed by sun always always always home Riding ponies – spinning tales Narrating hairy and fairy affairs Her life one bad hair day Golden girl wants a happy way Inner blondes Have more fun Inner blondes Sparkle within Inner blondes Kissed by sun Always always always home

about

“Keep an eye on Cassis. Her band is taking pop to new places.”
--Rolling Stone
“One of the most unusual discoveries of Euro-Pop is called Cassis. You won’t be able to put them into a drawer.”
--Tip
“Dare to live. Cassis is always on the move like the beats that dance in her midi-accordion. Bonbon pop with a slight taste of sweet salty licorice.”
-- Sueddeutsche Zeitung

Hailing from a tiny Southern German village Cassis’ CD, ANALOG LOVE – itself a labor of love seven years in the making – fuses Cassis’ passion for scoring films and penning cinematic songs.

Cinematic connections permeate ANALOG LOVE. ‘River’ springs from Cassis scouting locations in the Oregon wilderness for Jim Jarmusch’s masterpiece, ‘Dead Man’. Working with Jarmusch for years, Cassis had earlier produced the Cannes Palme D’ Or winning segment of Coffee and Cigarettes, the one with two of Cassis’ inspirations--Tom Waits & Iggy Pop.

‘Girltime’ anchors the soundtrack for the Oscar-nominated film ‘Ferry Tales’ and ‘Open the blinds of one heart’ is the end credit song for ‘About a Girl (Die Boxerin)’, the prize-winning feature about an ambitious female boxer.

Peter Patzak’s Zodiac Sign (Sternzeichen) has the upbeat ‘I’ll Sue You’ in the soundtrack. A big fan of Cassis, Peter also directed a ½ hour documentary about Cassis that played on national German television.

Finally, several lush instrumental tracks from the wistful documentary ‘Living Lightly’ tie together all the songs on ANALOG LOVE.

A transatlantic production, notable contributors are many, among them the legendary studio session team of Herbie Flowers, bassist for David Bowie and also Lou Reed’s ‘Walk on the Wild Side’, and ‘Guitar God’ Chris Spedding. Malcolm Mortimore, drummer with Ian Dury and Gentle Giant, also makes an appearance. Their cover of ’96 tears’ with Cassis is a funky, accordion-driven, anti-war bonus track.

Sometimes gritty, sometimes ethereal, sometimes playful, always warm, Cassis’ voice is often compared to Nico and Bjork, while her punchy yet playful delivery is reminiscent of Tori Amos. Love, loss, heartache and hope are the themes that Cassis here digs deep into, often with her spritely sense of humor, and spins new lyrical gold.
