The Songs That We Sing
Charlotte Gainsbourg Lyrics


I saw somebody who
Reminded me of you
Before you got afraid
I wish that you could've stayed that way

I saw a little girl
I stopped and smiled at her
She screamed and ran away
It happens to me more and more these days

[Chorus]
And these songs that you sing
Do they mean anything
To the people you're singing them to
People like you

I saw a photograph
A woman in a bath
Of hundred dollar bills
If the cold doesn't kill her, money will

I read a magazine
That said by seventeen
Your life was at an end
I'm dead and I'm perfectly content

[Chorus: x2]

"The Songs That We Sing"

I saw somebody who
Reminded me of you
Before you got afraid
I wish that you could've stayed that way

I saw a little girl
I stopped and smiled at her
She screamed and ran away
It happens to me more and more these days

And these songs that you sing
Do they mean anything
To the people you're singing them to
People like you

I saw a photograph
A woman in a bath of hundred dollar bills
If the cold doesn't kill her, money will

I read a magazine
That said by seventeen
Your life was at an end
I'm dead and I'm perfectly content

And these songs that I sing
Do they mean anything
To the people I'm singing them to
People like you

And these songs that we sing
Do they mean anything
To the people we're singing them to
Tonight they do

I love this song, but I can't help giggling at this lyric: "I saw a little girl, I stopped and smiled at her, she screamed and ran away, It happens to me more and more each day" All I can imagine is that this little girl just watched Antichrist and recognized Charlotte Gainsbourg and is running for her life.

Ranya Gramny

Hahahahahahaha this is brilliant 🤭
