Don't Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)

Album: What We Saw From The Cheap Seats (2012)
  • Down on Bowery they lose their
    Ball-eyes and their lip-mouths in the night
    And stumbling through the streets they say
    "Sir, do you got a light?"
    And if you do then you're my friend
    And if you don't then you're my foe
    And if you are a deity of any sort
    Then please don't go

    Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
    Ne Me Quitte Pas
    Ah ah ah ah Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
    Ne Me Quitte Pas

    And down on Lexington they're wearing
    New shoes stuck to aging feet
    And close their eyes and open
    And they'll recognize the aging street
    And think about how things were right
    When they were young and veins were tight
    And if you are the ghost of Christmas Past
    Then wont you stay the night?

    Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
    Ne Me Quitte Pas
    Ah ah ah ah Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
    Ne Me Quitte Pas
    Ooh ooh ooh ooh Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
    Ne Me Quitte Pas
    Ah ah ah ah Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
    Ne Me Quitte Pas

    Down in Bronxy-Bronx the kids go
    Sledding down snow-covered slopes
    And frozen noses, frozen toes
    The frozen city starts to glow
    And yes, they know that it'll melt
    And yes, the know New York will thaw
    But if you are a friend of any sort
    Then play along and catch a cold!

    Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
    Ne Me Quitte Pas
    Ah ah ah ah Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
    Ne Me Quitte Pas
    Ooh ooh ooh ooh Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
    Ne Me Quitte Pas
    Ah ah ah ah Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
    Ne Me Quitte Pas

    I love Paris in the rain
    I love Paris in the rain
    I love, I love, in the rain

    I love Paris in the rain
    I love Paris in the rain
    I love, I love, in the rain

    Oh I love, I love, in the rain
    Oh I love, I love, in the rain
    Oh I love, I love, in the rain Writer/s: REGINA SPEKTOR
