You said you had my back
But I was attacked by a pack of dogs frothing at the mouth
Stabbed in the face
Glass in my guts, crash!
Passed in the passenger's side
You were drunk
And falling, falling, falling, down
You were falling, falling down

J'aime, j'aime, j'aime, parlez vous
Such a shame, shame shame, shame on you
J'aime, j'aime, j'aime, parlez vous
Can I blame, blame, blame, blame you?

You cut your feet on the glass
In the grass
Shards got stuck in the past
When the footprints you left didn't last
I through you a bone
But you bit one of my own
I'm gonna do it
Without it
It's appalling, appalling, how short your hair can grow
I know there's a problem
When you gave up
You were gone

J'aime, j'aime, j'aime, parlez vous
Such a shame, shame shame, shame on you
J'aime, j'aime, j'aime, parlez vous
Can I blame, blame, blame, blame you?

You said you had my back
But I was attacked by a pack of dogs frothing at the mouth
Stabbed in the face
Glass in my guts, crash!
Passed in the passenger's side
You were drunk

    General CommentIsn't the title incorrect, grammatically?

    I thought it should be "J'aime Voir Vous Quitter", in other words, 'I love to watch you leave'.

    General Commentone last thing… the line "When it was good, you let it grow" goes right before "I know there's a problem" and after the line "how short your hair can grow"

    General CommentJ'Aime Vous Voir Quitter

    I think it's kind of a jab at J'aime, the guy that left the band and compelled Thorburn to state Islands Are Forever

    I wonder how rocky their friendship is now.

    General CommentActually, in French it's correct to put the indirect object before the verb, so the title is correct.
