Subject: She Picks Flowers
There are strange and loud banging sounds
Barking just outside the door
And she walks on a trembling floor.

Her home a shelter on these shaking grounds
But the world around seems only
Made of tears unheard in the cacophony.

And the elders speak these words that make no sense
For a child simply living to preserve some innocence.

She longs for these moments when silence is at hand
So she may go out to her beautiful piece of land.

There, she has a thought for her mother
As she lies at the center of this garden so beloved
Where they once kneeled together
And where alone today, she picks flowers for the dead...

I don't usually share french lyrics or poems on a board made of mainly english speakers, but as many here have a fair grasp of french...

"Cette femme-là"

C'est l'histoire d'une femme
Son chagrin lave ses yeux chaque matin
Victime de ce monde infâme
De tous ces homme qui en ont pris soins
Malheureusement...

Dans cette vue elle n'a connu
Que le parfum de la souffrance
Dans les bras d'inconnus
Et des nuits de décadence
Dans cette vie elle n'a vécu
Que le parfum de la douleur
Sa soif de vie s'est répandue
De son sang et sa rancoeur

Elle n'est qu'une montagne d'indécences
Elle ne croit plus à l'espoir
Elle ne veut que partir en trance
Oublier la traitrîse de tous les soirs

Entre coins de rues et draps tâchés
Elle love sans jamais aimer
Laisse sa vie aux mains d'étrangers
Qui savent trop bien en profiter.

Dans sa vie elle n'a connu
Que le parfum de la méfiance
Dans les bras d'inconnus
Et ces nuits de fausses romances
Dans sa vie elle n'a vécu
Que la soif d'illusions
En elle s'est répandue
Un élixir, un poison.

Elle s'est fait la chatte
De tous les chiens qui aboient
Elle est devenue chatte
Et son amour n'a plus de lois

Dans cette vie elle n'a connu
Que le parfum de la démence
Dans les bras d'inconnus
De ces nuits de malveillance
Dans mon coeur elle a cherché
Un lieu pour se réfugier
Dans mes bras elle a pleuré
Mais son destin s'en est chargé.

Car maintenant... elle doit partir...

It's strange how my french lyrics tend to be built around characters, are more anecdotal than anything I write in english...

... and the character most often dies.

Wonder what that says about my 'inner psyche.' raised eyebrow
