"Hiroshima Mon Amour" as written by Dennis Leigh, William Currie and Warren Reginald Cann....
Somehow we drifted off too far
Communicate like distant stars
Splintered voices down the phone
The sunlit dust, the smell of roses drifts, oh no
Someone waits behind the door
Hiroshima mon amour

Riding inter-city trains
Dressed in European grey
Riding out to echo beach
A million memories in the trees and sands, oh no
How can I ever let them go?
Hiroshima mon amour

Meet beneath the autumn lake
Where only echoes penetrate
Walk through Polaroids of the past
Futures fused like shattered glass, the suns so low
Turns our silhouettes to gold
Hiroshima mon amour

    General Commentwhat?! no comments? man I love this song.. it's a great feel and the lyrics are pretty impressive. "futures fused like shattered glass", "the suns so low.. turns our silhouettes to gold". vocal delivery fits it well. That flute line gives me chills everytime. may sound dated to some, but to me.. great song (:

    General CommentThe title is taken from a 1959 French film, directed by Alain Resnais and written by Marguerite Duras. The film concerns a Japanese man and a French woman (who are apparently lovers about to split up) who have a series of conversations, punctuated by WWII flashbacks, over a weekend. This abstract lyric is more a poetic reflection on the film's content (in particular the emphasis on memory, and the sense of a fading relationship) than a summary of the actual plot. One interesting diversion is the use of colour imagery ("...turns our silhouettes to gold..."), given that the film is in black and white.
