lyrics

Just when you thought you'd abandoned that life, you see her photograph
And the memories all come to light like a song on the phonograph
the days decay like debris along the river bank
but your memory of her holds as stern as a rusting tank
Your friends all say "Ça C'est L'Amour"
I don't believe them anymore

Every time that you shouted her name served as testament
to the fact that your obstinate rage had rent you impotent
to expressions of love and desire and to tenderness
you became what you feared as you lapsed into wilderness
Your friends all say "Ça C'est L'Amour"
I don't believe them anymore

Her picture lives in the papers your closet keeps
A spark to trigger your darkness to nearly speak

Now your walls are alive with the light coming from within
An illumined expression of what was once called sacrament
you've ordained all the priests in your mind to carry out rituals
as the body, the blood, and the wine held you miserable
Your friends all say "Ça C'est L'Amour"
I don't believe them anymore
