I fell in love with a bad, bad man
Ever since I met him I been sad, sad, sad
June faded into blooms of September's moon waned and grooved
Your perfume haunted me long after I saw the swing of heaven's gate open in toward me

Luxurious in your arms, your smile is the cool sun in the dark
Misery rejoices when you're near and fever
No sign of sickness keeps me burnin' down in my heart

Winter melts, she shys away quite like the silence a dying star makes
I'm a jail bird to your music, a criminal in your prayers
I watch you in your sleep even when you're not there

^I fell in love with a bad bad man
Ever since I met him I've been sad sad sad
I'm a jail bird to your music
I'm a criminal in your prayer
I watch you in your sleep even when you're not there
Rainbows wept colour all over the streets
When you went away maybe one day we'll meet
Lipstick I'd wear for one million years
Just to stop your eyes from falling them tears

I fell in love with a bad bad man
Ever since I met him I've been sad sad sad
I'm a jail bird to your music
I'm a criminal in your prayers
I watch you in your sleep even when you're not there
Rainbows wept colour all over the streets
When you went away maybe one day we'll meet
One day we'll meet
One day we'll meet
One day we'll meet
One day
We'll meet^

Picture this: your lips on my lips
The mirror has to do for now 'cause you vanished like a cloud
Rainbows wept colour all over the streets
When you went away maybe one day we'll meet

"Oh woman," you're callin' me
I haven't slept a wink since 1916
I wasn't born then but sure feels time's been tickin'

Shadows parade outside my door
I wish we were dancin' across this old floor
Car horns honkin' down that dirty street
I wish you were yellin' tellin' to wash my feet

Lipstick I'd wear for one million years
Just to stop tears from your eyes, fallin'

    General Commenti wish they had the whole poem written up someplace 'cause i likes it more than the song---so i'll try deciphering.


    I fell in love with a bad, bad man
    Ever since I met him I been sad, sad, sad
    June faded into blooms of September's moon waned and grooved
    Your perfume haunted me long after I saw the swing of heaven's gate open in toward me

    Luxurious in your arms, your smile is the cool sun in the dark
    Misery rejoices when you're near and fever
    No sign of sickness keeps me burnin' down in my heart

    Winter melts, she shys away quite like the silence a dying star makes
    I'm a jail bird to your music, a criminal in your prayers
    I watch you in your sleep even when you're not there

    Picture this: your lips on my lips
    The mirror has to do for now 'cause you vanished like a cloud
    Rainbows wept colour all over the streets
    When you went away maybe one day we'll meet

    "Oh woman," you're callin' me
    I haven't slept a wink since 1916
    I wasn't born then but sure feels time's been tickin'

    Shadows parade outside my door
    I wish we were dancin' across this old floor
    Car horns honkin' down that dirty street
    I wish you were yellin' tellin' to wash my feet

    Lipstick I'd wear for one million years
    Just to stop your eyes from fallin' them tears...

    General Commentits not the lyrics but the tune i think. because this song sounds so much like a lullabye. and she may feel like a criminal for having a baby with the guy and keeping the baby, she sees him in his sleep (through the baby) even though he's not there.

    she may want to keep the lipstick on to keep the child from crying because when children are small they cry for anything but the depressed single mother may feel its because the father has left which makes her sadness even more profound.

    rainbows wept color all over the streets.
    it may be because even though the child brings happyness to her world, it has caused her man to leave them.




    when he went away maybe one day well meet. probably describes the raw emotion and hurt she felt when he went away. maybe one day they will meet because of the child together.

    General CommentWhen I read the lyrics I thought of falling unhealthily in a superficial sense of love with a near-stranger only t crush yourself in the process. Maybe I am crazy.

    General CommentAre you kidding? I think this is the best cocorosie song.. This song is just really really fits with the lyrics.
    It's unbeliavable how they get up with so simple instrument playings, and somehow just make them so cute and exposed.. They also have great voices and they are so meaning it.. .. They just.. Are the best..

    General Commentthis is probably the most beautiful song i've ever heard. (even though i had no idea what she was saying toward the end.)

    General CommentThis isn't my favorite song by them, but I adore these lyrics:
    Rainbows wept colour all over the streets
    When you went away maybe one day we'll meet

    I see it as just as a guy left her, but I doubt it's that simple.
