Unissued studio version of a piece published on El Strøm's album Long Time No Sea where Danish singer Birgitte Lyregaard and his alter ego comrade Sacha Gattino form one of the most exciting trios since the end of Un D.M.I. It is also one of the rare projects where Birgé swaps all his keyboards for instruments with more spectacular interfaces, such as the Theremin here...


How many days
Shal I resist
My sweet love
Dear Snow White

How many nights
Waiting for you
Making no noise
Not hearing you

How much time
Does a kiss take
To wake you up
Right now

How much does it hurt
If times passes
Without our cries
To leave a trace

Come closer
Even sleeping
Deliver us
If we’re off beat
