Is it you I keep thinking of?
Should I feel like I do?
I've come to know that I miss your love
While I'm not missing you
We run
Til it's gone
Et les fleurs du mal
Won't let you be
You hold the key to an open door
Will I ever be free?

Les fleurs du mal unfold
Comme les fleurs du mal
Dark demons of my soul
Un amour fatal
Been tryin' hard to fight
Comme les fleurs du mal
Les fleurs du mal inside
Un amour fatal

All my life I've been waiting for
In this perfume of pain
To forget when I needed more
Of love's endless refrain
We live
And we pray
Pour les fleurs du mal
I've lost my way
What is done will return again
Will I ever be free?

Les fleurs du mal
Comme les fleurs du mal
Un amour fatal
Comme les fleurs du mal

    General CommentI can't believe no one has submitted or commented this song yet. One of Sarah's best! It reminds me of Within Temptation and Nightwish.

    General CommentI found this song on Pandora, and I couldn't believe it was Sarah Brightman. I always took her for a soft rock/opera/musical person, not a symphonic rock person. (Can you tell I don't know much of her non-musical theatre work? ^_^) She sounds great though.
    As far as the meaning goes, I'll second the "love-hate relationship" angle.

    General CommentOops didn't mean to post that as a reply... here's the same thing in comment form:

    The redeeming qualities of this relationship are gone or never existed. Yet, I still like being the object of your affections. Because I am not honorable, my intentions aren't either. We stay together for all the wrong reasons.

    Though I struggle internally, The flowers of evil are in full bloom within.

    I'm again in the low point of this vicious cycle. I act hurt in an attempt to show that I don't need love. The result is me craving misbehavior and dysfunction once more. Who do I know that misbehaves? You? let's get back together!

    This is going to be fatal.
