I can make you happy All you need is to believe in me I can make you laugh And I know for sure I can make you tough You said you’re weak and too hurt To open your heart But I know, yeah I know That there’s a light behind your dark window You said you’re weak and too hurt To open your heart Too many shadows dancing But I swear I can open the curtain And I know I can make you happy (All I need is to destroy everything) Heavy mental Happy machine Hail the devil Count me in I can make you shine All I need is to make sure you’re mine And I can bring you joy And I swear I won’t treat you like a toy You said you built an awful castle To repulse all those who want to battle But I’m not one of the others I came to conquer your heart and to matter But I’m here, standing without shaking swear I won’t leave until earth is breaking And I know I can make you happy (All I need is to destroy everything) Heavy mental Happy machine Hail the devil Count me in And I know I can make you happy (All I need is to question everything) Heavy mental Happy machine Hail the devil Count me in You said you built an awful castle To repulse all those who want to battle But I’m here, standing without shaking swear I won’t leave until earth is breaking

Paper & Pen 03:03
If I could draw my Life It would be all filled in black If I could see your face again I know It would cause so much pain (Please beat me to Wake me up Hit me till you knocked me out) You lost your halo Many smiles ago Save me from my demons I want to believe in you I wanna have faith in your words (I wish I could But I can’t) Every word you say Means nothing to me now (I wish I could But I can’t) (Paper and pen, paper and pen) I thought Writing would erase the pain (Paper and pen, paper and pen) But too many scars erased your name Like a Broken Window There’s no light comin’ Like a broken mirror Your face is a distortion Didn’t see it comin’ I was blind, drunk on you My whole world lived in your face When you were faking To be someone else And now I’m weaker than ever (When you were faking To be someone else) (Paper and pen, paper and pen) I thought Writing would erase the pain (Paper and pen, paper and pen) But too many scars erased your name

Friendzone 03:16
Ouuuuh I've been put into your friend zone If only you knew All the dirty things I wanted to do With you Too bad you can't read between my lines You keep telling me your lies and all your stories about your exes But the thing is all I want is to be next to you But I don’t think you understand You don’t even think of me, damned Ouuuuh I've been put into your friend zone If only you knew All the dirty things I wanted to do With you When it’s late and it comes to dark And I feel lost like a child like a ghost without its bride It shines that you don’t even think of me You don’t want to call my name (At night) You don’t even think of me (damned) If only you knew all the bad things I want to do Walking back home Lonely With all my hope With me The memory of our kiss I know what I will miss I shouldn’t have let you go I should have tried harder I should have let you know Ouuuuh I've been put into your friend zone If only you knew All the dirty things I wanted to do With you Ouuuuh I’ve been friend zoned I am in your friend zone Ouuuuh I’ve been friend zoned I am in your friend zone

Scratches 03:05
Where were you When I needed you? When all my life broke? When the silence was in my thoughts? Where were you? Think I don’t know myself anymore (I have all these thoughts inside my head) All my dreams are burning now (I have all these voices in my head) Think I don’t like myself anymore (I have all these thoughts inside my head) All these voices screaming (Inside it Is all filled with scratches) Why didn’t I get all these magical moments? These words, these laughs that were supposed to meant... Nothing now Think I don’t know myself anymore (I have all these thoughts inside my head) All my dreams are burning now (I have all these voices in my head) Think I don’t like myself anymore (I have all these thoughts inside my head) All these voices screaming (Inside it Is all filled with scratches) You left this empty space That could be filled by no one else you taught me how it feels to be complete and you took every pieces of me away Think I don’t know myself anymore (I have all these thoughts inside my head) All my dreams are burning now (I have all these voices in my head) Think I don’t like myself anymore (I have all these thoughts inside my head) All these voices screaming (Inside it Is all filled with scratches)

Told U So 02:33
It's not working out We've been here before It's time to face the truth (We are done) There Is no Hope for you and I There is no way Out Can't believe I Can't believe I Can't believe I am feeling this Can't believe I Can't believe I Can't believe I am feeling this I don't wanna hear that you 're Sorry Don't want an other try Don’t wanna feel that you leave me Don’t wanna cry I hate to say that I told you so (But I told you so, But I told you so) I hate to say that I told you so (But I told you so, But I told you so) I’m not crying Out We've been here before I’ll stop to fight the truth (We are done) There Is no Us for you and I There is no way Out Can't believe I Can't believe I Can't believe I am feeling this Can't believe I Can't believe I Can't believe I am writing this Don't wanna think that you fooled me Don’t want to start a fight Don't want to lose what you gave me Don’t wanna die I hate to say that I told you so (But I told you so, But I told you so) I hate to say that I told you so (But I told you so, But I told you so)

Thought we had a special connection How could I be so wrong? Should have bitten my tongue Instead of pushing this big evil button that would destroy all my soul I can hear the echo in your brain The emptiness in your life (since I’m gone) Can’t even remember how it starts How our butterflies came to turn into ugly worms that filled every inches of your dark heart now, do you even know who you are? Don’t you remember me? When I come to visit you in your dream (crawling in your dreams) Will you ever say sorry for this It’s too late my face will haunt you till the end I can see all the marks of my nails notching the walls as I was watching our fall I tried so hard I believed we could heal our plague but the wounds were way too deep and I wasn’t strong enough to dig into the meander of your being (I tried so hard) Can you feel my soul Burning down the hall Squeezing my bowels As our end rings the bells

Amount of money, amount of stars Are enough to close their eyes Upon all behind the haze I’m walking away, when they think they can join me No hazard, while crossing blizzard, Reflections are skewed by their egos No self-esteem while they boast No self-esteem when they’re lost Surrounded by the crowd, I won’t fight for the crown I’ll follow my own path (oh oh oh oh) Even if it’s full of haze Ain't nothing else to say I'll do that my way With no rules to obey Mirror mirror on the wall Tell me who's wonderful Mirror mirror on the wall Tell me who's wonderful Mirror mirror on the wall Can you please just kill them all? Surrounded by the crowd, I won’t fight for the crown I’ll follow my own path (oh oh oh oh) Even if it’s full of haze Ain't nothing else to say I'll do that my way With no rules to obey Ain't my style to shut my mouth Cause all along I stand against clichés Raised up no matter What they say Ain’t my style to sweeten the pill Cause my honor is all I got, my pride's my honesty Even if it’s hard I’ll try to do my best Come along with me, take a look and see, what’s behind the haze

You're my greatest mistake Can't escape from you You're the devil in my head Your body is my guide Nothing can stop me now Got the devil in my hands I am so fucking trapped I’ve got the devil in my bed When I was low I Met a shadow Turned out to be a devil Oh man if you had seen her smile Flames inside Can you please be my bride? You're my greatest mistake Can't escape from you You're the devil in my head Your body is my guide Nothing can stop me now Got the devil in my hands I am so fucking trapped I’ve got the devil in my bed Oh man, if you had seen her eyes Thought it was a sunflower Turned out to be a lighter That could make my Life brighter Burnt my soul into ashes I got the devil in my head I got the devil in my hands I got the devil in my bed I got the devil in my head I got the devil in my hands I got the devil in my bed

Am I doing it right? Singing like in an old punk rock song Doing like they used to do? Cause I don’t want to cry out loud I don’t want to scream or yell Just want a sing a song without my heart cut wide open Is it still a punk rock song If I don’t yell “the world is going wrong”? Cause I feel lazy today And I ain’t got much to say Is it still a punk rock song If I say today I’m feeling okay? Yeah I’m feeling okay No matter what you say And I know that the world is going mad But how can we live if we all stay sad? Don’t want to go back to depression Want to stay out of that radio station I know we all need to go to rehab But can we please just stay out of that for a minute Is it still a punk rock song If I don’t yell “the world is going wrong”? Cause I feel lazy today And I ain’t got much to say Is it still a punk rock song If I say today I’m feeling okay? Yeah I’m feeling okay No matter what you say Hold on for a minute Yeah, hold on to this smile You can give your life a chance Doesn’t make you weak to change You deserve a better life So come on and smile Yeah come on come on Is it still a punk rock song If I don’t yell “the world is going wrong”? Cause I feel lazy today And I ain’t got much to say Is it still a punk rock song If I say today I’m feeling okay? Yeah I’m feeling okay No matter what you say

Game Over 03:45
Good bye to all of you My Friends, my enemies Hope you'll be fine without me Can't stand, no I can’t stand Tired of this bastard soul Next Time you'll see me in this hole He Was Right, the higher We get, the lower we sink After playing all these years Now my Time has come Turn off the screen, can't you see? (No more chance to change that part) I'm disconnected Now it's Time to say I'm disconnected (No more chance to change that part) You wanna play? Not sure you'll be tough enough Beg your pardon But I think I'm done don't have any clue, don't Know how to stay It's easier to go away Now that it's over, I won't have to think So now tell me How you feel? Tell me Does it hurt? Yeah After playing all these years Now my Time has come Turn off the screen, can't you see? (No more chance to change that part) I'm disconnected Now it's Time to say I'm disconnected (No more chance to change that part) Do you wanna play Not sure you'll be tough enough Do you wanna play, are you sure, you wanna play? Do you wanna play I said, do you wanna play are you sure, you wanna play? After playing all these years Now my Time has come Turn off the screen, can't you see? (No more chance to change that part) I'm disconnected Now it's Time to say I'm disconnected (No more chance to change that part)

about

Penny Was Right from Paris deliver an energetic and unpretentious music at the crossroads between Californian (skate) punk rock and pop rock, where singer Dalia's voice particularly stands out.

After two EP's and their 2018 debut album, the new record "Happy Machine" is a more mature production: a raw, less watered down punk rock that moves away from the youthful energy of their first works. Penny Was Right retain their original touch, in that the album emphasises a solid and catchy rhythm, but at the same time unfolds new nuances and intelligent structures. The impressively performed lyrics sometimes deal with quite dark and personal topics, dealing with painful relationships, suicidal thoughts, despair, unfairness and the concept of legacy: all the things that leave their mark on our lives and make us the people we are. Ten tracks whose lyrics are full of double meanings.
