Rich Girl

Got no money

Got not a home

I’ve got a lot of loans

I don’t mind it at all

 

When I see you driving your nice car

I feel totally bad

When I see you inside your luxury house

I feel absolutely sad

 

How much money you’ve got in your hands

How much rubbish in your pretty mind

 

When I think about your empty live

I feel totally bad

When I thing you never will be mine

I feel absolutely sad

 

How much money you’ve got in your hands

How much rubbish in your pretty mind

 

Got no money

Got no house

Got no car, no boat, no plane, no one pound

I haven’t even a cat

 
Lyrics

1. Rich Girl
J J Legarda/L Escalante  

Denise

This is a song

That’s part of my life

I never get off my mind

I play the song

With plenty of love

Such a feeling

I can’t stop

 

Things come to me

That I never forget

That is why

I’ll never say goodbye

 

My feelings now

Are touching the keys

The melody is like a kiss

I play the piano

Black and white keys

My sweet endless melody

 

Really the best

Is not to meet the end

That is why

She will not say goodbye

 

I want to say how much

I think of you

Sweet Denise

 
Lyrics

2. Denise
L Escalante/J J Legarda  

Chains

In the sky, beautiful people

All the rainbows are making a figure

And meantime in town I lose my freedom

My freedom, my freedom

 

Down in town, beautiful people

Old blue eyes sings with the figure

And meantime in town I lose my freedom

My freedom, my freedom

 

Chains, chains, chains, chains, chains and freedom

Chains, chains, chains, chains, chains and freedom

Chains, chains, chains, chains, chains and freedom

My freedom, your freedom

 
Lyrics

3. Chains
J J Legarda/L Escalante  

Look & See

Look and see how I am feeling

If you sing this song and you are in love

 

Well you know how that feeling is

Try to do it again humming the song

 

If you touch some kind of magic

And its loss is something tragic

You are ready now to reach the end

Having a good day

And thinking of the girl

And talking to the people

Those beautiful people

Lovely people

Lucky people

Like you

 

Look and see what is the meaning

Of this old devil’s thing they’ve called love

 

If you know exactly the meaning

Sorry about the song ‘cos I was wrong

 

But you touch some kind of magic

And its loss is something tragic

You are ready now to reach the end

Having a good day

And thinking of the girl

And talking to the people

Those beautiful people

Lovely people

Lucky people

Like you

 
Lyrics

4. Look and See
L Escalante/J J Legarda  

It’s enough for me

When you said bye to me

After living together dreaming every night

When you said bye to me

I was crying in the darkness like a little child

 

I know you’re living a new dream

On the top of a mountain, reaching all the stars

I know you are feeling a new swing

At the top of a rainbow, listen to the wind

 

When you said bye to me

After working together resting every night

When you said bye to me

I was drinking in the shadows like the hardest men

 

And then I lost my memory

Killing all my old lovers, all except my own

And wiping off my oldest tears

I agreed that the words are “blowing in the wind”

 

Holding the road with my guitar

Getting a song

Up in the sky a lonely star

It’s enough for me

To hear a new goodbye…

 
Lyrics

5. It's Enough for Me
J J Legarda/L Escalante  

La lupa

Mira con la lupa porque es ciego

Mental

Mira con la gafa y es lo mismo

Que no mirar

 

When the mind is blind

You can’t even see the light

When the mind is blind

You can’t even see your hands

 

Mira con la lupa y no ve nada

De “na”

Mira con la gafa y no se entera

Nunca jamás

 

When the mind is blind

You can’t even see the light

When the mind is blind

You can’t even see your hands

 

This is no way

Looking at the world

With your close and narrow mind

 

Change your style

Open your eyes wide

You won’t need la lupa más

Nunca más

 
Lyrics

6. La Lupa
JJ Legarda Jr/JJ Legarda/L Escalante  

Living in the book

Sitting on the sofa you’re thinking… men

Looking through the page of the tale

Sitting on the sofa you’re waiting for

Dreaming you’re the hero of the war

Living in the book

The captain has a hook

And a foolish butterfly

Doping you

Living in a book

 

Sitting on the sofa you’re thinking… men

Listen to the notes all around

Sitting on the sofa you’re sleeping… men

Dreaming you’re the boss of the show

Living in the song

Billy sings alone

A strange and lonely band

Plays a waltz

Living in a song

 

Take it easy and write a tale

Write some music and come on

Billy kisses Mw, Hook

And Butterfly, Mrs. Hook

Kill some people and come on

 
Lyrics

7. Living in a Book
L Escalante/J J Legarda  

The Eye´s Secrets

Looking at my painful fingers

And looking at my old guitar

All I need’s the secrets what’re in your eyes

 

Taking down my empty suitcase

And looking through my empty live

All I need’s the secrets what’re in your eyes

 

Give me some tears, just one second

Just for wetting my guitar

And the strings will find

Secrets in your eyes

 

Looking at the broken mirror

And looking at my dirty glass

All I need’s the secrets what’re in your eyes

 

Thinking of my hidden whishes

And thinking on my own guitar

All I need’s the secrets what’re in your eyes

 

Give me some tears, just one second

Just enough for a small glass

And my lips will find

Secrets in your eyes

 

Give me some tears, just one second

Now we wish only to cry,

Our tears will find secrets in your eyes

 
Lyrics

8. The Eye's Secrets
J J Legarda/L Escalante  

Loserland

If you feel that you’re a looser

I will thing you’re a happy man

If you never have succeeded

I will thing that you‘re the best

 

I want to live

I want to forget

I do not believe in that

I feel so sad

I am very tired

I don’t like the land I left behind

 

Now in my boat

The sea’s showing me

The way that before I needed

 

I like the waves

I feel very fine

My boat goes alone to Loserland

 
Lyrics

9. Loserland
J J Legarda/L Escalante  

Black Star

In the garden are growing black roses

They’re coming from the black star

Black as her eyes

Shining moonlight

Shaping her body in the night

 

In the garden she’s like the black roses

Raindrops keep falling in her eyes

Moving her arms

She’s dancing with the light

It’s coming from the black star

 

You, old star

Be mine tonight

I want to move her arms

You, old chap

Give me the night

Just one night

 

Our garden is a bounty of roses

Only one is black, the rest are white

I’m the black one

I’m still dancing with the light

It’s coming from the black star

 
Lyrics

10. Black Star
L Escalante/J J. Legarda  

You killed my heart

When you said bye to me

You really killed my heart

I feel bad

I feel so bad

I don’t want to live like that

 

But today

You’ve let me down

There is no looking back now

I can’t hold on

You can’t return

Why don’t I understand

The bridges have been burnt?

 

Can’t forget the time

You gave your love to me

It’s too late

It’s much too late

I know we can’t start again

 

I can’t stand it

Without you love

Why did you have to go?

Stop and come back home.

 
Lyrics

11. You Killed My Heart
J J Legarda/L Escalante  

Rick´s cafe

I’m in love with all the people

I’m in love with the people

Who drink smile or smoke in Rick’s Cafe

 

I’m engaged with all the people

I’m engaged with the people

Who sing, love or cry in Rick’s Cafe

 

Foolish people

Everybody comes to play a game

Everybody must win, at

The game, a friend

Ilsa changes the game

 

I agree with all the people

I agree with the people

Who kiss, dream or die in Rick’s Cafe

Foolish people

Everybody comes to play a game

Everybody must win, at

The game, a friend

Only Victor wins the game

 
Lyrics

12. Rick's Cafe
L Escalante/J J Legarda  

Millennium Boulevard se grabó en 1997 en System Estudio y Basque Coast Studio y supuso la reunificación de tres de los componentes (Luis Escalante, Juanjo Legarda y Ramón Cortina) del grupo Los Amis disuelto 22 años antes. A ellos  se unió Sara Escalante, hermana de Luis.

El disco se grabó sobre dos “Workstation” digital Roland VS-880 (16 pistas) sincronizadas entre sí y con un secuenciador MIDI Cubase.  El disco lo mezcló y masterizó José M. Barral en System Studio.

Todas las canciones fueron compuestas por Luis Escalante y Juanjo Legarda (excepto La Lupa por Juanjo Legarda Jr.). Es un disco ambicioso, de armonías complejas y en ocasiones sofisticado.
