Alan Parsons Project, The - Soireé Fantastique Lyrics




And now a trick that is done with mirrors
To exist and not to be alive
I'm the man who has disappeared
In his own eyes
And if you come to watch my sleight of hand
You can look but never see
Misdirection is not being lost
When doubt is all that you believe

In your kiss I find the key
To all of the locks that were holding me
Now all their illusions fall away
In your touch I find the piece
To restore what was torn and now I'm complete
I finally found the light of day
In this soirée fantastique

Now you see me, now you don't
Says the man I used to be
Behold a levitation made of hope
Rising up to set me free

In your kiss I find the key
To all of the locks that were holding me
Now all their illusions fall away
In your touch I find the piece
To restore what was torn and now I'm complete
I finally found the light of day
In this soirée fantastique

In your touch I find the piece
To restore what was torn and now I'm complete
I finally found the light of day
In this soirée fantastique

Alan Parsons Project, The Soireé Fantastique Comments
  1. Brian Arsenault

    go see this man live.... an amazing experience

  2. BTech

    That little riff around 4:10 reminds me slightly of Silence and I, although I might just be projecting there.

  3. רוברט ויינגר

    This song is the kind off songs that make one fall in love with the music of alan parsons

  4. cla_ san

    just like it was in the 80's with Let's Talk About Me i fell in love since the first listening...😍

  5. Isabelle Genvo

    beautiful to listen ..i love this voice .... thank you <3

  6. Brian Arsenault

    They are touring!! Go see them before it's too late. You will not regret it. have seen them twice in the last year. Magical experience

  7. falinjupiter1964

    El mas grande

  8. drolraw13

    EPIC...Simply Amazing!

  9. Prudencio Garcia Gomez

    Que gozada de álbum.

  10. Dr. Ron Eaglin's Web and Database Programming

    Listening to this song over and over again. The vocals are amazing, lush and interweaving harmonies. This has got to be one of APP's finest works. This album really needs to be nominated for a grammy - it is an amazing work requiring many listens to truly appreciate the subtleties of the songs.

  11. Francis Maxino

    Why only 41,773 views ? That seems insanely low considering how awesomely lush and great this track is, what is wrong with people when they can't hear how beautifully performed and produced this music is ?

  12. Michael Bruce

    Bond song

  13. Terry Vinson

    Great track. A mix of old and new APP.

  14. SquigTaters

    I am stunned by the beauty of this song.

  15. CAS

    More one job wonderfull!

  16. Charles-Olivier Denis

    good to see a song with a french word that isn't absolutely murdered.


    I mean on the other hand, Alan Parsons Speaks french fluently, so It would be hard to fail.

  17. François Benoit

    Keep me flying as the all above, very fantastic, really, surely.

  18. Giuseppe Fabrizio Turrisi

    Great Alan Parsons & Todd Cooper!!

    François Benoit

    Yes that is

  19. Tom Gray

    And now a trick that is done with mirrors
    To exist and not to be alive
    I'm the man who has disappeared
    In his own eyes
    And if you've come to watch my sleight of hand
    You can look but never see
    Misdirection is not being lost
    When doubt is all that you believe

    In your kiss I find the key
    To all of the locks that were holding me
    Now all their illusions fall away
    In your touch I find the piece
    To restore what was torn and now I'm complete
    I finally found the light of day
    In this soirée fantastique

    Now you see me, now you don't
    Says the man I used to be
    Behold a levitation made of hope
    Rising up to set me free

    In your kiss I find the key
    To all of the locks that were holding me
    Now all their illusions fall away
    In your touch I find the piece
    To restore what was torn and now I'm complete
    I finally found the light of day
    In this soirée fantastique

    In your touch I find the piece
    To restore what was torn and now I'm complete
    I finally found the light of day
    In this soirée fantastique

  20. Pauline Horton

  22. Ross Quaresmini

    fantastico ( ; =))

  23. edgardo diberardino

    Hermosa canción, un oasis en medio de la basura de la (?) música de hoy. Gracias sr. Parsons, no todo está perdido.

  24. Francisco Xavier Pulido Sanchez

    Thank's!

  25. Giuseppe Fabrizio Turrisi

    amazing!

  26. PREPA ABIERTA Hilda Patricia Santacruz

    Maravilloso como siempre Alan Parsons! Es un placer seguirte en tu impecable trayectoria.

  27. Brian Arsenault

    more and more tracks becoming favourites as I listen more frequently. Saw the band on this tour. What a wonderfully nostalgic evening that was.

  28. vicente garcia

    SE LO QUES SOIREE FANTASTIQUE AS ACERTADO AL 100%

  29. Salvador Servià II

    one night in Paris...

  30. DJM626

    This is one of my favorite tracks on this release. A little dark, a little haunting maybe, but the the chorus is ridiculously insane. Well done!

  31. Francisco Xavier Pulido Sanchez

    Cumple. Quien es el guitarrista?

    Kaleiddmode

    Slash 😁

  32. denise clendinning

    I love this track

    François Benoit

    This is one of the best track on the album

    denise clendinning

    @François Benoit i love all of the album , Its different and that keeps it fresh.

    denise clendinning

    Thankyou.

  33. Kaleiddmode

    Vocals mix too loud.

    Bryce Kretz

    Kaleiddmode I feel the same way on just about every track on the album... I love the arrangements and producing, but the mix/mastering has been disappointing in my opinion...

    Benedict Roff-Marsh

    This is how vocals should be mixed. They are bold & clear instead of sunk. Alan has worked with better vocalists in the past but that is a sign of the times. Overall I find these songs a breath of fresh air compared to all the ghastliness over the last decade.

    DJM626

    I am in total agreement with everything you have stated.... It's nice to be able to hear and understand what is being sung instead of muddy vocal mixes in which you can't understand a word that is being sung. This is how it was back in the day and it's nice that some groups are still doing it in this way

    Kaleiddmode

    Compared to his previous productions these vocals are too loud compared to the rest of the instruments but if you want to like them that's your preference. Maybe it's the voices timbre trying to create harmonies.

    Baruch Toráh

    @Kaleiddmode I agree with you and that seems to happen all throughout the record. I remember commenting something very similar to my wife while listening to 'I Can't Get There From Here'. The instruments sound so much behind the vocals it almost sounds like mainstream pop music. Nothing like any Project songs, with a full spectrum of instruments sounding around the vocals although not overshadowing them.

  34. Sheldon Smith

    Is that Ian Bairnson at 3:59?

    Kaleiddmode

    No. Ian is on Can't Get There From Here and on Years From Here.

    Sheldon Smith

    Yet... that sound and melodic phrasing is distinctly Ian! I wonder who is credited for the solo?

    David Keiser

    Kaleiddmode, You mean "Years of Glory"

    David Keiser

    Sheldon, Jeff Kollman is credited as lead guitarist here and he, along with Dan Tracy, play acoustic guitars. The sound which you describe as "distinctly Ian," at the 3:59 mark, sounds familiar because it sounds like Ian's guitar solo at the end of "Silence and I," which I'm sure was intentional.

    Rocco Diaz

    Jeff Kollman awesome! See band live is experience!

  35. TC Kuhlmann

    Nice, nice ...would have been great if Alan Parson would have had John Miles again as guest musician

    Sheldon Smith

    I agree... he was one of my all time favorite vocalists from the project days. Shadow of a Lonely Man, The Cask of Amontillado, La Sagrada Familia, and There But For the Grave of God (from Freudiana) are all classics!

    François Benoit

    @Sheldon Smith and what else , things have to pass away.

    Ponyboy Curtis

    on the song sometimes he had Lou Gramm of Foreigner ]:P

  36. Rodrigo Gomez

    It's a great song and album Alan, but I am not impressed by Mr. Cooper's vocals. I am 100% sure you would find better voices for your songs. Belieeeeeeeeeve... (ouch)

    Benedict Roff-Marsh

    I just commented on that above. Sadly the singers of yore are gone and the kids just don't understand. At least this is better than Trailer Swift & Adhele autotuned into oblivion.

    Rodrigo Gomez

    @Benedict Roff-Marsh It's a great album, no doubt about it.

    Rocco Diaz

    Rodrigo... U R a Asshole!! I see you talk about all band!?! Even Alan Parsons. Who are you? No one impressed by negativity! No one impressed by you

  37. Antonio Emilio Sola Fernández

    Maravillosa canción con el.estilo inconfundible de la mejor época de The Alan Parsons Project. ¡Gracias Alan por seguir ahí! ¿Ian Bairnson de nuevo a la guitarra...? Excepcional.

  38. niemsn

    Oh my goat! He is still making great songs like this.

    Kaleiddmode

    Oh your goat 🐐

    niemsn

    @Kaleiddmode In 🐐 we trust

    Tomasz Toft

    A new Alan Parsons album was my most cherished and log felt desire for many years since A Valid Path. But recently I doubted that there will be a new one and forgot about that, so this was pretty shocking that there is a new album
