Lyrics

Placebo

Pour l'amitié,
L'amitié entre hommes et femmes
Impensable
Parce que, il y a toujours
Sous jacent
Le désir animal

This is the story of
Melody Nelson
Apart from me no one
Ever took her in his arms
Under her thumb
Ice in the sun

Oh my Melody mine
Oh my Melody mine

She was nothing but love
Poor
Melody Nelson
Her life was more said than done
But her days were numbered
(?Nil?) Count fourteen falls
Fifteen on calls

A baby tiger was
Melody Nelson
Forever purring in the sun
Just as dangerous as a child
With a gun, shooting me down

Oh my Melody mine
Melody Nelson
Still playing hurting games for fun
As adorable as dumb
Deaf to the sound
To what's going down
Down
Down
