If I could reveal what I feel for you
And mark my words with a gentle kiss
Like Saint George I'd slay the dragon
Just to find I'd lost

From outside this window there's
Walls between us
And outside is outside and that's
Where I'll be
I'll be wrapped in the morning dew
Just to find you gone

So pour me a drink from a broken bottle
And fill my glass with the dirty water
What I've lost is gone
What I've gained has no name
And I'll take my leave once more
Ah J'aime mon amour
Ah J'aime mon amour
Fools for love in any language
Sometimes get burned by the heat of beauty
Just to find she's gone

My love is a scar that I wear for you
Like a crown of thorns
Like a bad tattoo
I wear sin, like a ring of beauty
Just to find you've gone
