La fille sur le pont

A Girl on a Bridge

There she was, staring into the night
Paris lights shimmering in a soft glow
Her mind lost, twirling in tears
Confusion wrapping her in a warmth of fear

She dreams of a knife threw her chest
To stab away the darkness of misery
She smiles with hope, so close
The river flows beneath
Blackness so inviting
The currents of death to take her away

It takes but a leap, of lost hopes and dreams 
The depths of the river to take your breath away
And your last wishes become filled with envy
For those who still float above you

Many lovers cross the seine
Hand in hand in the night 
Oblivious that all must end
Romantic pains, meet their end
If you are a girl on a bridge

She kissed the river
She caressed the shivering night
She clung to her emptiness
She danced her last fading dance
And wedded death, her last embrace
