étoile du jour


Author Comments

Hey everyone. It's been a while since anyone has heard anything like this from yours truly; I decided to hearken back to two of my biggest musical influences, Mylène Farmer and (early!) Alizée when writing this song. One of the listeners of the work in progress to this said it reminded them of the internet between 2005 and 2015 for reasons he couldn't quite point out; mission accomplished, I say.

The song was intended to be a Hymmnos title, called FLOW_HYMME_ETOILE=DU=JOUR/., with the Hymmnos lyrics written by Geiky. In fact, Hymmnos backing chorus lines for this song already exist, and it was my intention to record the lot today. This was meant to be the Marta Hymmnos, the song that my character Styrion sings when bringing forth her Cosmocrystal, allowing her to sing more powerful songs that bring about cataclysmic effects in battle.

Unfortunately, I had a total HDD file loss today. This means that I've lost even the project file for it. I can no longer make tweaks to it or even master it. I am therefore releasing the song in its current, unfinished state, with only the French lyrics.

All music and lyrics in this version written by yours truly, all voices performed by yours truly.



Une pierre dans l'espace vide,

une boule de feu entre autres dans le ciel

et une queue de glace qui nous dépasse :

tout a sa place dans l'univers.

Un souffle dans le froid infini,

un nuage qui brille comme l'arc-en-ciel

et une boule de pierre qui tourne en rond :

partout où l'on va, y'a des merveilles.


Y'a une étoile de près, qui perce les ténèbres.

Une étoile qui naît et une autre étoile qui meurt.

Tu n'peux pas rêver de ralentir le temps,

tout est destiné de suivre son chemin.

Y'a une étoile qui file, qui fait briller la nuit.

Une étoile du jour, qui fait ouvrir les yeux,

et ne m'dis pas que tu penses à ralentir le temps —

tu n'feras pas face contre l'univers.

Même l'astre qui signale la mort,

même la comète qui présage la fin

et même notre terre qui semble seule,

tout a sa place dans le fil des temps.




A stone in empty space,

a fireball among others in the sky

and a tail of ice that passes us by:

everything has its place in the universe.

A gust of wind in the infinite cold,

a cloud that shines like the rainbow

and a stone ball turning round:

everywhere we go, there are wonders.


There is a star nearby, that pierces the darkness.

A star that is born, and a star that is dying.

You can't dream of slowing down time,

everything is destined to follow its path.

There is a shooting star, that brightens up the night.

There is a day star, that makes eyes open,

and don't tell me that you're thinking of slowing down time —

you won't have a chance against the universe.

Even the astral body signalling death,

even the comet that marks the end,

and even our earth which seems alone:

everything has its place in the thread of time.

You have a knack of adjusting your tone to different vocal styles, i like that. Yea it's good. I don't think much of the tune. You are the sell on this.


Sounds very nice. I like the part from 0:46 which fades in there, I don't know why the French language fits so well with electronic music. I guess it's that "vogue" feeling which it gives, although probably nobody will get what I mean with that lol.

Nice thingo

I speak french too nice song :)

Merci quand même 😁 C'est pas ce que j'imaginais, parce que j'ai bien voulu rajouter un peu plus de voix à cette chanson par exemple, mais voilà où nous en sommes.

This is great. It really reminds me of Cascada and similar artists.
