Charlotte Gainsbourg

The city lights are beckoning, their sirens softly call
All the fantasists and fetishist are preparing the ball
When you’ve been stuck here on the doorstep with nothing to forsake
But you might as well be anyone's to take

So I give myself to strangers like I gave myself to you
But the tenderness I felt has been replaced by something new
And in the orgy I can vaguely hear the outline of your call
But I might as well be anyone's at all

Every memory is sailing to the kingdom of your soul
As you patiently await I lose all sense of self-control
You were the lighthouse to my broken boat but I left you behind
Now I might as well be anyone's to find

Take my body, take it from me
It is not worthy of your memory

I remember you undressing as I set myself on fire
And the funeral was quick as I lay lifeless on your pyre
Well, it's a kind of desperation and it's just something you can't fake
Oh, I might as well be anyone's to take

So I give myself to strangers like I gave myself to you
But the unity I felt has been replaced by something new
Now I am Helen and I am Mary Jane, I'm Robert and I am Paul
Oh, I might as well be anyone at all
Yes, I might as well be anyone at all
Oh, I might as well be anyone at all
Oh, I might as well be anyone at all
Oh, I might as well be anyone at all
