Cocorosie lyrics : "Haitian Love Song"

Interoretation of early black and white haitian love songs
Oceans wept

Moutains slept
Sidewalks crumbled to ash
Your name remains

In children's lullabies
And your eyes forever in the sky

Pull me close
Dear i'm tremblin'
Hold me tight

I'm afraid ot the night
Blackness fills the room
Your love burns bright

Oh summer winds
Remind me of your kiss

Soft and warm
I never want to leave this

I never wanted ti say goodbye
I'd throw myself to the sea
If god promised you're inside

We'd float to island paradise
And i'd become your bride

The countryside looks bare
Without you lying in her grass
The stream is dry

And the crickets silent
There's no music in the night
I'd become smoke

And hide in your cigarette pack
To be a star

Tossing light
To sparkle in your eyes
I'd become an angel

And kiss this earth goodbye

Use to be
Just a word to me
But heaven sure was right

When they said jesus left somethin' behind
Every inch of this body

I'd plate in gold for you
Even though i ain't go no money
I'd do it just to keep you

Your eyes appear
In every one of my dreams

They glitter and they gleam
Like the first time we meet

The chickens crowed
And i knowed your home
My spirit ran to greet you

Before my feet left the porch
