(I hear)

Young girl in the market
Gives it to the men
When the men leave
Her eyes are red
When her eyes are closed again she sees the dark market

And she sings
They say the most horrible things
But I hear violins

When I close my eyes
I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done

Young boy in the market
Follows all the men
When the men leave
He’s out of his head
When his eyes are closed again he sees the dark market...

And he sings
They break the most beautiful things
But I hear violins

When I close my eyes
I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done

I look into your eyes
And I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done

Center of the sun

Young boy in the market
Sees the girl alone
And asks her
“Have you lost you way home?”

She sings
You say the most beautiful things
Just like my violins

I look into your eyes
I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done

When I close my eyes
I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done

‘Cause I hear violins
I hear violins
Center of the sun

I hear violins

    General Commenti need some help on the versus and bridge on this song. i think the girl is a prostitute, maybe? the men treat her like trash, but she remains strong. the boy.. i don't know. the violins are symbols of their strength and escape when the world is horrible. hm. ? conjure one also does this. i'm not sure who did the original version.

    General CommentThis song should actually be under the aegis of either Conjure One or Delerium. Poe was a guest artist on one of the Front 242 spin-off bands.

    General CommentYes, the girl is a prostitute that hates what she does or atleast hates what is done to her.

    This song belongs to poe. Anyone who knows her work and Conjure One's work can immediately see that she was the main creative force behind it.
