"Stage Whisper" (2011)




Terrible Angels lyrics - Charlotte gansbourg

My head is pounding, my mouth is dry
My eyes are burning, oh I can see you lowering
Pan de sal, Blanc Ménage
Holy holy, tension turn me inside out
Inside out, inside out

Seraphim, please don't pull me down
It's just a drowning man reaching for me now
Seraphim, please don't pull me down
It's just a drowning man reaching for me now
Please don't pull me down

I want release from absolution
I want release from-
I want rele-
I want release

Terrible angels, infant sorrows
Twilight horses, they will walk with me again
I can hear them, oh I can hear them
My ancestor, my protector, my tormentor
And a lot unknown, and a lot unknown, oh oh

Seraphim, please don't pull me down
It's just a drowning man reaching for me now
Seraphim, please don't pull me down
It's just a drowning man reaching for me now
I want release from absolution
Benediction
Good intentions
Blue black flowers
Poison wine
Blood ecstatic
Annihilate the sense of things
I am born into these breaking hours
Out of change change change

Paradisco lyrics - Charlotte gainsbourg

In paradiscos
We get bored with breaking windows
Turning beggars into heroes
Bodies moving innuendos
In paradiscos
We're confined to only pleasure
Metal pin take a measure
When you're a flame you'll burn forever
And forever

I'll burn an effigy out of the past
Then our clothes catch fire as we dance
And I wonder how long they could last
Walking through a room full of broken glass

In paradiscos
We'll make a million out of zeroes
Split an apple with an arrow
Play the violin like Nero
In paradiscos
Into the eye of an angel
You can fly like a mosquito
And turn into the magnate of the people
In paradiscos

I'll burn an effigy out of the past
Then our clothes catch fire as we dance
And I wonder how long they could last
Walking through a room full of broken glass

I'll burn an effigy out of the past
Then our clothes catch fire as we dance
And I wonder how long they could last
Walking through a room full of broken glass

All The Rain lyrics - charlotte gainsbourg

If God don't make mistakes
Pulling the weeds from the ground
As they're growing up and over the streets of the city
And I can't play it straight
Cause I don't know if it matters
You try to stay calm as they bring your head on a platter

All the rain
All the rain
Cover me now
All the rain
All the rain
Cover me now

Little lion wilt
Pushing against the world
What you hope to gain is the same as what you're losing
Like a parasite
Living off somebody's life
All you take from someone else
Give yourself away

All the rain
All the rain
Cover me now
All the rain
All the rain
Cover me now

All the rain
All the rain
Cover me now
All the rain
All the rain
Cover me now

White Telephone lyrics - Charlotte gainsbrough

White telephone
Pick up the receiver
Wait for the tone
Wait for the tone
It's droning
There's no one on the line
It's droning
There's no one on the line

The rotary
Finger into the hole
Pull back, let go
Pull back, let go
It's ringing
No one answering
It's ringing
There's no one answering

All our words go into the wire
Just like a ghost
Just like a ghost
It's fleeting like light from a room
Into darkness from an empty room
I'm fleeting like light in a room
Into darkness crawling after you

Anna lyrics - Charlotte Gainsbourg

Anna,
Take me back to the home
Anna,
Once I knew it’s getting born

I’ve been in the world
Now had to sing
Still I could hear
Your voice calling in

Takes too long
To forget you 
If I’d known to stay
Too long
To forget you
I’m still waiting for a chance

Anna,
All I see is your face
Anna,
Same great heart still away

I want you to know
I was so young then
Don’t wanna feel
On my own again

Takes too long
To forget you
If I’d known to stay
Too long
To forget you
I’m still waiting for a chance

Go To Let Go lyrics - Charlotte Gainsbourg (feat. Charlie Fink of Noah & The Whale)

You say you fallen in love and can’t let go
There’s only one thing I think you should know
You’ve got to be strong when the cold as the day
Got to realize when there’s nothing left to say
Good things come and go
One day you will know

You’ve got to let go, yeah you’ve got to let go
Yeah you’ve got to let go

When your night feels longer than the day
Love’s a wrecking ball and you’re in its way
Feels like everyone you know has close the door
Just don’t feel like keeping on, anymore
Got to make up your mind
Our wounds heal in time

You’ve got to let go, yeah you’ve got to let go
Yeah you’ve got to let go [X2]

It’s a deadly revolver, it’s a deadly revolver
It’s a deadly revolver to your head [X4]

Out Of Touch lyrics - Charlotte Gainsbourg


Please please please
I’m calling for you my dear
I hope you can understand
I think it’s time we changed our plan

All this while we’re trying to raise up money
It’s all that we really have
It seems to me we’ve lost our touch

Oh I had to start
We’ve been out of touch
Oh I had to start
Can’t keep myself away

All this time
I’m trying to change my way
But now that you live my life
I’m starting to feel I’ve let you down

So please please please
I’m calling for you my dear
I hope you can understand
I think it’s time I changed the lock

Oh I had to start
We’ve been out of touch
Oh I had to start
Can’t keep myself away
Oh I had to start
We’ve been out of touch
Oh I had to start
Can’t keep myself away

I hope to be with you
And ain’t no other way
We speak each other’s minds
That’s the only kind of touch
But I’ll always be here for you all the time
So in a different kind of way
I still love you just the same
It seems to me we’ve lost our touch

Oh I had to start
We’ve been out of touch
Oh I had to start
Can’t keep myself away
Oh I had to start
We’ve been out of touch
Oh I had to start
Can’t keep myself away

Memoir lyrics - Charlotte Gainsbourg

The city lights are beckoning
Their sirens softly call
All the fantasists and fetishist
Are preparing the ball
When you’ve been stuck here on the doorstep
With nothing to forsake
But you might as well be anyone’s to take

So I give myself to strangers
Like I gave myself to you
But the tenderness I felt
Has been replaced by something new
And in the orgy I can vaguely hear
The outline of your call
But I might as well be anyone’s at all

Every memory is sailing
To the kingdom of your soul
As you patiently await
I lose all sense of self-control
You were the lighthouse to my broken boat
But I left you behind
Now I might as well be anyone’s to find

Take my body, take it from me
It is not worthy of your memory

I remember you undressing
As I set myself on fire
And the funeral was quick
As I lay lifeless on your pyre
Well it’s a kind of desperation
And it’s just something you can’t fake
Oh I might as well be anyone’s to take

So I give myself to strangers
Like I gave myself to you
But the unity I felt
has been replaced by something new
Now I am Helen and I am Mary Jane
I’m Robert and I am Paul
Oh I might as well be anyone at all
Yes I might as well be anyone at all
Oh I might as well be anyone at all
Oh I might as well be anyone at all

Just Like A Woman lyrics - Charlotte Gainsbourg

(originally by Bob Dylan)

Nobody feels any pain 
Tonight as I stand inside the rain 
Ev'rybody knows 
That Baby's got new clothes 
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows 
Have fallen from her curls. 
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does 
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does 
And she aches just like a woman 
But she breaks just like a little girl. 

Queen Mary, she's my friend 
Yes, I believe I'll go see her again 
Nobody has to guess 
That Baby can't be blessed 
Till she sees finally that she's like all the rest 
With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls. 
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does 
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does 
And she aches just like a woman 
But she breaks just like a little girl. 

It was raining from the first 
And I was dying there of thirst 
So I came in here 
And your long-time curse hurts 
But what's worse 
Is this pain in here 
I can't stay in here 
Ain't it clear that-- 

I just can't fit 
Yes, I believe it's time for us to quit 
When we meet again 
Introduced as friends 
Please don't let on that you knew me when 
I was hungry and it was your world. 
Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes, you do 
You make love just like a woman, yes, you do 
Then you ache just like a woman 
But you break just like a little girl.
