En fleurs (II)

Chanson : Where The Wild Roses Grow, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds ft. Kylie Minogue



Paroles


They call me The Wild Rose But my name was Elisa Day Why they call me it I do not know For my name was Elisa Day


From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one She stared in my eyes and smiled For her lips were the colour of the roses That grew down the river, all bloody and wild


When he knocked on my door and entered the room My trembling subsided in his sure embrace He would be my first man, and with a careful hand He wiped at the tears that ran down my face


They call me The Wild Rose But my name was Elisa Day Why they call me that I do not know For my name was Elisa Day


On the second day I brought her a flower She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen I said, "Do you know where the wild roses grow So sweet and scarlet and free?"


On the second day he came with a single red rose He said "Will you give me your loss and your sorrow" I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed "If I show you the roses, will you follow?"


They call me The Wild Rose But my name was Elisa Day Why they call me that I do not know For my name was Elisa Day


On the third day he took me to the river He showed me the roses and we kissed And the last thing I heard was a muttered word As he knelt above me with a rock in his fist


On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief And I kissed her goodbye, said, "All beauty must die" And I lent down and planted a rose 'tween her teeth


They call me The Wild Rose But my name was Elisa Day Why they call me that I do not know For my name was Elisa Day My name was Elisa Day For my name was Elisa Day
