“A French Girl’s Mirage”

Well, then he sat beside the river bank
And took her frozen hand
As she was staring at the sleeping giant
On the river bed
And he began to whisper something stupid
‘bout his hopes and fears
And she stood up out of the blue
And told him “I’m in love…
But not with you.”

That’s when their eyes got closer
Than a teardrop on a cheek
And almost a hundred million hours passed
Upon their empty grins
And he began to dance around
A thousand words he should have said
But then she put her index
On his shivering lips
And she sang:

“I’m just another girl
You know you’ll never have;
Tell me how does it feel
When you taste like me,
When you want nobody else.
Have you ever believed in love
Or a surrogate feeling you can drink
Just to please yourself?
Tell me what it’ll be like
When you’ll wake up in your bed
And I won’t be there.”

“I can give you all of what you see,
I’ll take you to the top
And we’ll be dining on a dinosaur
Or have a tea with God
For I can be the one who rescues you
From drowning in a lake
And teaches you how to play dead
If we found a bear
Or maybe whales.”

That’s when their hearts got closer
Than a finger on a string
And almost a hundred million evenings
Walked along with that first kiss
And laying on the brightest field,
Looking at the stars,
She held her breath a while
And she said…
Well, she sang:

“I’m still another girl
You know you’ll never have;
Tell me how does it feel
When you taste like me,
When you want nobody else.
Have you ever believed in love
Or a surrogate feeling you can drink
Just to please yourself?
Tell me what it’ll be like
When you’ll wake up in your hand.”
