"Rebel Prince" as written by and Rufus Wainwright....
Where is my master the rebel prince?
Who will shut all of these windows
It's these windows all around me
It's these windows who are telling me
To rid my dirty mind of all of it's preciousness

Where is my master the rebel prince?
Bet breaking everything trying to get to me
In this two-bit hotel
Just to me before this windowsill
Does rid my dirty mind of all of it's preciousness

Oh, I can see him now
Though it's so far away
Amongst the roving crowd
Going the other way
Confounded anger burning with love for me

Ou est mon maitre le prince rebelle?
Qui va fermer toutes ces fenetres
Ce sont ces fenetres autour de moi
Ce sont ces fenetres qui m'appellent
Qui m'appellent

Marigold, Marigold, Marigold
I'm leaving the Roosevelt hotel
Marigold, Marigold, Marigold
I'm leaving the room we knew so well

Marigold, Marigold, Marigold
Marigold, Marigold, Marigold
Marigold, Marigold, Marigold
Marigold, Marigold, Marigold
Marigold, Marigold, Marigold

    General CommentThis one is off of Poses, which was when he was partying a lot and living in the Chelsea Hotel. i always thought it was just about him going out every night and sleeping around and then coming home and having no one who actually loved him- what he really wants at the end of the day is someone who "burns for love" for him. It's kinda like Between My Legs...

    General Commentdoes anyone know what this song means? id like to think its not rufus literally looking for his rebel prince, there must be something else. and why is he singing marigold marigold?
    could it maybe be about him in search of his rebellious side?

    General CommentInteresting idea ExLover. Rufus does like to refer to himself in a tricky way (ie one man guy...where he's the only man he loves)

    General CommentRufus has been quoted saying that Marigold was a play name for one of his lovers. So I am assuming a lot of the song also has to do with this Marigold gentleman.

    General CommentWell, it's almost exactly the same lyrics... The only difference is that "qui m'appellent" means "who are calling me", and not "telling me".
