"Protege Moi" as written by William Lloyd, Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal, Steven Hewitt and Virginie Despentes....
C'est le malaise du moment
L'épidémie qui s'étend
La fête est finie, on descend
Les pensées qui glacent la raison
Paupières baissées, visages gris
Surgissent les fantômes de notre lit
On ouvre le loquet de la grille
Du taudis qu'on appelle maison

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want

Sommes-nous les jouets du destin
Souviens-toi des moments divins
Planant, éclatés, au matin
Et maintenant nous sommes tout seuls
Perdus les rêves de s'aimer
Le temps où on avait rien fait
Il nous reste toute une vie pour pleurer
Et maintenant nous sommes tout seuls

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want

    General Commentthe translation.:
    It's the disease of the age,
    An epidemic that spreads,
    The party is over and we descend,
    The thoughts that freeze the mind.

    Lowered eyes and gray faces,
    The ghosts of our past awaken;
    We open the latch on the gate
    Of the slum that we call home.

    Are we the playthings of fate
    Remember those divine moments
    We'd laugh and party until dawn**
    And now we are all alone.

    Dreams of happiness lost,
    The time we have done nothing (Dreams of innocence gone)
    We're left with a lifetime to cry,
    And now we are all alone.

    General CommentI prefer this song to Protect Me From What I Want. This version seems more ... raw. But I don't know why.

    General Commentjust a note--"La fete est finie" means the party is dead, not the party is finished (which is "la fete a finie")

    General CommentI think it's about coming home after a wild night and realize you're alone and you're totally wasting your life with drugs, alcohol, casual sex, etc. and you regret it, but the next day you're back on it. All of us been there once, right? Or, at least I was.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. Brian singing in French is just amazing. His voice sounds so haunting in this song, so sad.

    General CommentI love this song. It's so mournful and sad, yet I cannot stop listening to it. I find the French version to be much more emotionally accute then the English verison.
    Does anyone know where I can find the video?
