Ghost In The Rain

Vintage
Je me souviens de mes années devant la caméra, l’écran de cinéma, j’étais une déesse, j’étais aimée, aimez-moi encore
I watch you on camera, I watch you television,
Vintage, film noir, vintage,
You’re buried in Paris, I follow you,
I bring you flowers for the grave,
I bring you flowers for your grave
I watch you in silence, I watch you with a child’s enchantment,
Vintage, film noir, vintage,
You’re buried in Paris, I follow you,
I bring you flowers for the grave,
I bring you flowers for your grave
It’s raining and I don’t mind, raining,
It’s raining and I don’t care, raining
I watch you on camera, I watch you television,

Ghost In The Rain
Goodbye, is that all you came to say
Goodbye, I still cherish yesterday,
I am the ghost trembling in the rain
I am a ghost, remember me this way
Take care, where ever you may go
Take care, wherever you call home
I am the ghost trembling in the rain
I am a ghost, remember me this way

Stay With Me
When I wake up in the day,
Morning’s lost and slept away,
And slumber call me back again,
Stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, stay with me girl,
Stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, stay with me girl.
When the night falls flat and quiet,
And shadows come alive inside the room,
And my mind is barely lucid,
Still I know I’m not here alone,
And the night turns back to day,
A web of dreams disintegrate,
And through the window figures creep,
Stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, stay with me girl,
Stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, stay with me girl,
When the night falls flat and quiet,
And shadows come alive inside the room,
And my mind is barely lucid,
Still I know I’m not here alone.

Brigitte
My Brigitte, you are beautiful to me,
When autumn dies, I’ll be left behind.
My Brigitte, you’re a crumpling photograph,
And when orders come, you’ll be by my breast.
Quiet tonight, on the western front,
Quiet tonight, on the western front.
And my Brigitte, though I’ve never held your face,
Within my mind, we’re in another place.
My Brigitte, as your photo lives,
My Brigitte, my life slows down
Am I in my twilight?
My Brigitte, as the earth becomes my blanket,
And autumn dies, I’ll be left behind.
Quiet tonight, on the western front,
Quiet tonight, on the western front.
My Brigitte, as your photo lives,
My Brigitte, my life slows down
Am I in my twilight?

Perfect World
Colours bleed before my eyes,
In hues of blue, collapse and die.
But when you’re here the bend and swirl,
And when you’re here it’s another world.
Voice shriek around my ears,
They cry forlorn then disappear.
But when you’re here they dance and swirl,
And when you’re here it’s another world.
Empty skies fade to grey,
And colours freeze in winter rain.
But when you’re here the bend and swirl,
And when you’re here it’s a perfect world.
Perfect world,
Perfect world.

Candy Lips
Candy lips and a new Kashmir coat,
Under bright lights you pretend you’re something else,
But there’s scrutiny from every corner,
When someone else is paying,
For your perfect face and your candy lips.
I hear a noise from afar,
It’s just the world tapping on your window frame.
Candy lip in a sheer lavender dress,
Beneath bright skies your skin is bankable still,
But there’s scrutiny from every corner,
When someone else is paying,
For your perfect features and your candy lips.
I hear a noise from afar,
It’s just your world tapping on your window frame.
I hear a noise from afar,
It’s just your world tapping on your window frame.
Candy lips beneath bright skies,
Candy lips beneath bright skies,
Candy lips beneath bright skies.

Vanishing Girl
Vanishing girl in a carnival of horrors,
It’s my obsession to watch you vanish
Till the next day’s show.
Vanishing girl behind the blood red curtain,
When you vanish I imagine you with me,
Till the next day’s show.
Vanishing girl if I stop you from reappearing,
Then you’ll always be with me, you’ll only be real,
In my private show.

Vampyra
Vampyra’s heart is on her sleeve,
Exposed to the scorching sun,
With nowhere else to hide,
She brings a thousand murderous years,
And crumples them inside you.
She wields a shiny needle,
To insert into your heart,
A pin prick through your ribs,
For a swell of light to seep in,
It is painful, it is ugly,
Seeing how it beats.
Vampyra’s heart is on her sleeve,
Exposed to the scorching sun,
With nowhere else to hide,
She brings a thousand murderous years,
And crumples them inside you.

Cynthia
Cynthia is crying, it makes me sad, it makes me sad,
Cynthia is laughing, it makes me smile, it makes me smile.
I can’t live without you, I can’t laugh or cry,
I can’t do without you, I can’t live or die.
In an icy chamber I lay her down, I lay her down,
In a stranger’s tear-drop, I hear no sound, no life no sound.
I can’t live without you, I can’t laugh or cry,
I can’t do without you, I can’t live or die.
Ashes to ashes, I want you back,
Ashes to ashes, I want you back.
Cynthia is close to me, I feel her chill, her ghostly chill.
I can’t do without you, I don’t wish to try,
I can’t be without, do I live or die.
Cynthia, Cynthia, do I live or die?

Music Box Doll
You look like ghost,
You’re paler than flour.
You look like a ghost,
You’ve been still for an hour.
But I remember you, you were full of life,
You were ten feet tall,
That’s how I remember, that’s how I remember you.
A music box doll,
You were easily broken,
A music box doll,
Always somebody’s token,
But I remember you, you were full of life,
You were ten feet tall,
That’s how I remember, that’s how I remember you.
You look like a ghost,
And darkness devoured you,
A music box doll,
I’m the ghost here beside you.
