Never thought you'd make me perspire
Never thought I'd do you the same
Never thought I'd fill with desire
Never thought I'd feel so ashamed

Me and the dragon can chase all the pain away
So before I end my day remember
My sweet prince you are the one
My sweet prince
You are the one

Never thought I'd have to retire
Never thought I'd have to abstain
Never thought all this could back fire
Close up the hole in my vain

Me and my valuable friend
Can fix all the pain away
So before I end my day, remember
My sweet prince
You are the one
My sweet prince
You are the one
You are the one
You are the one
You are the one
You are the one

Never thought I'd get any higher
Never thought you'd fuck with my brain
Never thought all this could expire
Never thought you'd go break the chain

Me and you baby
Still flush all the pain away
So before I end my day, remember
My sweet prince
You are the one
My sweet prince
You are the one
You are the one
You are the one
You are the one
You are the one
You are the one
You are the one
You are the one
You are the one
My sweet prince
My sweet prince

    Song Meaning" We wrote 'My sweet prince' after an actual event, about one of my relationships that ended in a true tragedy. A guy the three of us were really close to nearly died. It was really hard, we were rather troubled by this. Because we had these very strong feelings in us, this song kind of came out from nowhere. From our guts. I have a strong link with this song. It refers to a relationship with a guy and a relationship with a certain substance (heroin). These two reletionships end simultaneously in horrendous circumstances. He used to call me 'My sweet ptince' "
    Brian Molko, Tetu Magazine 1999

    I found this a couple of years ago, as I was looking for the meaning of the song... It's a french interview of Placebo ranslated into english. I printed it, but I can't remember the link... And there was a live performance I once watched, where Brian goes "So, it's really a song about heroin... We said 'too bad' and he left, during the song..." That's all I know about the meaning of "My sweet prince". This is the best song ever.
