"The French Song" as written by William Tutton, Kevin Fitzgerald and Carla Bozulich....
Now I lay me down to sleep,
Pray the lord my soul to keep.
Keep me through this starry night,
'Til I wake for morning light.
My soul to keep.
My soul to keep,
Locked up tight while lovers leap.
In the end I'll jump off too,
I'm already down with you.
And now I lay me to my bed,
Silence roaring through my head.
Babes aren't safe in restless sleep,
Gone in one terrific leap.
And you're so pretty
You're such a pretty pretty thing.
Those pretty lips make my heart race,
I get dizzy when I see your face,
I get stupid when I see your face.
Down with you, I'm down with you,
Yeah I'm stuck like mud, I'm stuck like glue.
The truth be told, I guess I always knew,
That in the end I'd jump off too.
I can not fly...
And my eyes are open wide.
I'm going down, yeah one more time.
Over the edge with a stoopid grin.
She never knew what hit her

    General CommentI think this song is about taking a chance with the one you love. Maybe sexually wise, such as a new position, if you know what I mean. Or it could be about the most obvious explanation, suicide. Two lovers "leap", probably off a building, to their deaths.
