An autobiographical song about a single mother, who walks the streets of Paris without a penny in her pocket but a Jack Kerouac poem in her hand. It’s high summer, her ‘gamins des rues’ are too poor to leave for the sea and settle for the chlorine odor of the swimming pools.

    Like the wind blowing away, on a very smooth and lightly mode, the voice of Caroline Christa-Bernard is taking us to the path of tenderness, with fragility and softness, her voice is getting into the head like a beautiful song you would listen going around without purpose, just walking in the sunshine with the wind caressing your face and the sun giving you warm at heart for each step you’re going through. Nice tender song.
