No mercy for she
Yann Tiersen Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Today fell to her feet
She called his name
She called his name
She called his name
She called his name
No mercy at my feet

No mercy come for me
She called his name
No mercy at my feet
She called his name


No words shall be
No words shall be




No mercy for she
To fall at her feet

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Yann Tiersen's song No mercy for she are quite abstract, but they evoke a sense of despair and longing. The repeated line "She called his name" suggests a search for someone who is either absent or unresponsive. The lines "Today fell to her feet" and "No mercy at my feet" suggest a feeling of powerlessness or defeat. The phrase "No words shall be" could be interpreted as a refusal to communicate or a repression of emotions. Overall, the lyrics seem to convey a sense of emotional numbness or a lack of resolution.


The song itself is a haunting and atmospheric instrumental piece, driven by Tiersen's signature combination of piano, accordion, and strings. The arrangement builds in intensity over the course of the song, adding layers of percussion and electronic effects. Tiersen is known for his eclectic musical style, drawing from influences as diverse as classical music, French chanson, and Balkan folk music. No mercy for she is a prime example of his ability to create evocative and cinematic soundscapes.

I am serious, I am addicted to this video. And I don't give a shit about the non-objectiveness of my comment (I love both the song and the film). The combination that you made is a sheer masterpiece!
