"La Amoureux" as written by and Justin Valenti Alex Haycraft....
Lover undo me
For weeks I've waited for your return
My head down
Eyes to the ground
My guess is a sure thing
You won't be back

Thank you for a month's worth of wooing
Your warm lips and my body for using
Six shades of mischievous gray
Sprinting through your skinny veins
It's no wonder my sense of perception
Is no better than a sailor in weather
So rough as to spill your guts
The sea swells up just enough, to keep your head up

Lover undo me
For weeks I've waited for your return
My head down
Eyes to the ground
My guess is a sure thing
You won't be back
You've all but consumed me
For days I pray for you to burn
I won't try to relive the nightlife
I had when I had you

Lot more of them need to fall
With eyes so soft and a livid cough she sighs
"Don't come near me
God damnit I am waving my colors of warning"
I am sorry darling
I'm just so sick of starving
You smile as I start my dive
Hands on hips, it parts your lips
Pushed to one side

Lover undo me
For weeks I've waited for your return
My head down
Eyes to the ground
My guess is a sure thing
You won't be back
You've all but consumed me
For days I pray for you to burn
I won't try to relive the nightlife
I had when I had you

And those six shades that I spoke of
Are just acts you try to pull off
Just as a cavity
Swallowing the things you need
Yet you skim what won't repeat
All demands what I've been asking
Your arms like a tragedy
Suffering from sun
I will cut myself off never to be turned back on

Lover undo me
(I will cut myself off never to be turned back on)
You've all but consumed me
(I will cut myself off never to be turned back on)
Lover undo me
(I will cut myself off never to be turned back on)

You'll end up starved out in some attic
Alone and afraid watching reruns of past times
Your hair falling out in heaps
The bridges you've burned
The ashes you keep

    General CommentLa Amoureux translates roughly to "the one in love". I looked it up in an online translator, so it most likely isn't exact.

    General CommentLA AMOREAUX, NEED TO FALL
    With eyes so soft and a livid cough
    She sighs, "Don't come near me"
    Goddamnit, I am waving my colors of warning."
    I am sorry, darling.
    I'm just so sick of starving.
    You smile as I start my dive.
    Hands on hips and PARTIAL LIPS

    General Commentyeah so what you have in capital letters are both wrong, andreaaaa. this is from the actual lyric sheet.
    its "La amoureux me defont" (its french)
    and "hands on hips impartial lips"

    try being right if you're going to correct somebody.

    General Comment"its no wonder my sense of perception is no better than a sailor in weather"

    this song is my favorite on the album. its beautiful yet sad.
    the translated "the one in love" makes sense in context to the song. he is in love with a drug addict. and he knows that no matter what he does she'll never come back.

    General CommentYeah, it's "La Amoureux me defont", which was intended to mean "Lover, you destroy me", but it's really just jibberish. And it's "a labored cough", not a livid cough.
    The end of this song is the best part by far.

    General CommentI don't know a lick of French and that was immediately obvious to me. I wonder why every lyrics site on the entire internet has some silly line there instead of the (attempted, at least) French one? IT'S RIGHT THERE IN THE TITLE OF THE SONG, for goodness' sake!

    General Commentit is totally about a drug addict. this song got me through last summer. my favorite by far. I am actually getting that phrase tattooed on me, it is sooooo deep. I'm so sad they broke up

    General Commenti'm absolutely sure it's "With eyes so soft and a LABOURED cough"
