Can I buy you something, can I stroke your hair,
You're a young nobody, you're a perfect soul,
Can I take you somewhere, can I wipe your tears,
You're the final offer for the men who call,
Our lady of Pigalle.
Will you be. ascending in this midnight heat
In the revolutions we tear down your walls and then
Our Lady of Pigalle.
You're a young nobody, I'm a passing glance
Beloved, broken into and caressed,
In the early hours when the streetlights fade,
You'll be savior, a reason for it all

On a flying buttress with stony feet?
Redeem you, reclaim you,

Angels in the dark,
Bottled up in you child,

Can I read you poems of my thirsty retreat?
I can take you in, I can make you whole.
Will you be ascending in this midnight heat
In the revolutions we tear down your walls,
Our Lady of Pigalle
