Everywhere I go I traveled to the pyramids, the Taj Mahal To great cities like Paris, Tokyo, New York But everywhere, Ooh, I go I see the same two initials, a D a heart an S Did you come here before me, to make me think of us It wasn’t me, Ooh, was it you? Wish it was you, tell me it’s you Throw a penny in a fountain, for good fortune Look at the sky catch a shooting star, make a wish Light a candle in a sacred place, a fire on a cairn There’s a thousand different ways, to send you my love From everywhere, Ooh, I go Everywhere, Ooh, I wanna go with you I’ve seen our initials, carved on trees Tagged on a bathroom door, dug into a beach I’ve seen them hieroglyphed, on Oscar Wilde’s tomb On someone else’s body, they were tattooed Everywhere, Ooh, I go Everywhere, Ooh, I see signs of you Everywhere, Ooh, I go Everywhere, Ooh, I leave signs for you

Your love through her Just one kiss Is not enough Feels like a piece of candy that melted in my mouth You left me dry Wishing for more You come and go like the wind in my hair with you I never know I wanna be her lips, be her skin Feel your love through her I wanna be her thighs, be her bliss So you think of me instead A second of peace Another blow This time you hit me off the ground right into the core What did I do to you, I feel Like a scarecrow You run from me, to her, every time you get real close I wanna be her lips, be her skin Feel your love through her I wanna be her thighs, be her bliss So you think of me instead Just one kiss That was enough You took the piece of candy, left the wrapper in my mouth Did you come to me To better toss Away the love, that you know I’ll always have I wanna be her lips, be her skin Feel your love through her I wanna be her thighs, be her bliss So you think of me instead

In parallel You drive down your highway I wander on my dirt path You sail with the sky I can find neither north or south You know where you’re pointing I’m threading in circles You got your head on your shoulders Mine’s been up in the clouds To each our road Wish ours ran close Enough that we could From time to time Walk it hand in hand You’re down to earth I get caught up in fairytales You know fiction from real I cry at drive-in movies Your pace is steady I can’t read speed limits You choose to ride alone I can’t be without you in my life To each our road Wish ours ran close Enough that we could Get to a crossroad again You lost me in traffic I got stopped at a red light You raced around a curve So fast I couldn’t catch up To each our road Hope ours runs close Enough that we can From time to time To each our road Hope ours runs close Enough that we can From time to time Walk it hand in hand Or side by side, in parallel Hand in hand or side by side, in parallel Hand in hand or side by side, in parallel

Quelle grâce Toi qui bouffe la vie, tu me mets en appétit T’as réveillé ma chair, trop longtemps endormie Toi qui me donne soif, merci tu as guéri Mon mal d’être sur terre, et mon coeur endolori Je veux tout goûter, jouir à en crever Plus jamais souffrir ou tout envoyer chier Y a déjà trop de misère, j’en crache j’en vomis Malgré toutes les prières, y a pas encore de paradis Tout est là ici bas, tout s’allume quand tu danses avec moi Tout est là ici bas, inlassablement je me perds dans un tourbillon de toi J’attendrais pas l’au-delà, je ferais plus semblant Le bonheur n’est pas là-bas, mais dans mon corps et dans mon sang J’veux croquer à pleines dents, me goinfrer de sensations Chialer de plaisir, quelle grâce D’être vivant Quelle grâce D’être vivant, d’être vivant Quelle grâce Tout est là ici bas, tout s’allume quand tu danses avec moi Tout est là ici bas, quand j’me perds un peu plus contre toi Tout est là ici bas, tout s’allume tout s’illumine en moi Tout est là ici bas, inlassablement je me perds dans un tourbillon de toi Inlassablement je me perds dans un tourbillon de toi De toi

Kiss me instead Don’t trash me The way you do Don’t kill me Before I’m dead You did it so many times I won’t take it I’m on my seventh life I won’t survive it Stop ragging On everything I do You know I’m hurting Do you want me to You did it so many times I won’t take it I’m on my seventh life I won’t survive it With you I’ve gone through heaven I’ve gone through hell I stepped in and out of paradise I tried to swim, to slide, to learn, to climb To lift us up to the other side I’ve been looking in between the lines Between the words, between our lives I’ve been holding on to paradise Holding on to hell, holding on to love I feel like running, running, running To stop drowning, drowning, drowning But I keep staying, staying, staying Cuz I keep hoping for the other side You did it so many times I won’t take it I’m on my seventh life I won’t survive it You did it so many times I won’t take it I’m on my seventh life You know I’ve had it Don’t trash me The way you do Don’t kill me Kiss me instead
