I got a couple of words to say
For all strong and silent types
Who don't talk to the girls they wanna love
Though it means their lives
I say this, ""It's time to get stark""
Yet the words don't come
Your eyes are blue as the coals that burn
In your black desire
I'll talk for you
Under the balcony in blue
I'll talk for you, I'll talk for you
For Cyrano de Bergers' Back
I'll have sympathetic years
To hear what your Roxanne will say
Though I love her 20 times more
I never say
I should be the erosion
Of color on your cheek
Instead I make your man a girl
In between your sheets
I'll talk for you
Ten hearts are beating true
This ain't a lie, this ain't behind
Cyrano de Berger's Back
I got a couple of words to say
For all you strong and silent types
Who don't talk to the girls they wanna love
Though it means their life
I should be the erosion
Of color on your cheek
Instead I'll make your man a girl
In between your sheets
I've got ten arms for you
Ten hearts are beating true
This ain't a lie

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that its "I should be the rouge of color on your cheek," and "Instead I'll make your man look good," but I could be mistaken on the latter.

    General Commentyou havehave to watch or have read Cyrano De Bergerac to understand.but the gist of it is that cyrano loved his cousin who was roxanne and roxanne loved a man named christian and he(christian) loved her too. and so cyrano decided to help christian win her over which was successfully done and he ended up dying with out ever telling her that he loved her or even cared.
