Track Name: Cold War Kisses (French Version)
Le moteur s'emballe
Odeur de brûlé
Deux feux s'évanouissent au fond de tes yeux
Envolés tes rêves
Dérive des sens
Tu n'as plus qu'a te demander
Pourquoi
Hey, regarde moi bébé
Filer m'envoler
Bye bye, baby bye bye

Mensonges et secrets
Baisers de Russie
Mes lèvres sur les tiennes
Tu peux l'oublier
Tu croyais me voir
A tes pieds
Je te laisse chercher d'autres souliers
Track Name: Lost Lisa Marie
My name is lost Lisa Marie
I've spent five years under the sea
For I loved a man not what he seemed to be
For he shot me and buried me deep.

He brought me down to this southern shore
To lay awake and wait for the dawn
The clouds turned black, brought on a gathering storm
He kissed me and through my flesh he tore.

On this night every year
He brings another woman down here
And all of them seemingly disappear
He does this and the sea fills up with our tears.

But tonight, tonight things will change
There's nowhere to run and no-one to blame
Our icy hands will reach up and grab his face
And drag him to a watery grave.

There are seven others just like me
With all our hands he'll never get free
And as he comes down here
I'll ask him: Do you remember me?
My name is lost Lisa Marie.
Track Name: Silence As A Weapon
You use silence as a weapon
Each long second a victory
So short for you
Eternity…
All my grand intentions
To Garbo-like pretentions
Fall so soon to you
Leaving me nothing
Only words chasing down
Hard and bright
Like dust falls as meteorites.

And the dogs bark
But your caravan moves on
Trailing lines of tangled dreams behind you
And the dogs bark
But all witnesses are gone
While sleepy girls awake who don't yet know you.

But the person that you run from
Isn't that girl, or the next one
And her charms were awful bright
All those sad connections
All temporary diversions
Rolling down the years
Saving your faith from
All the words chasing down
Hard and bright
Like dust falls as meteorites.

The dogs bark
But your caravan moves on
Trailing lines of tangled dreams behind you
And the dogs bark
But all witnesses are gone
While sleepy girls awake who don't yet know you.

You use silence as a weapon
Being with you a cold heaven
A leo fire
A thread of smoke
But someday you'll be happy
A light will surround you
Fire will rise again
You'll follow your own star
Of all the sparks in the sky
Hard and bright
Like dust falls as meteorites.

And the dogs bark
But your caravan moves on
Trailing lines of tangled dreams behind you
And the dogs bark
But all witnesses are gone
While sleepy girls awake who don't yet know you
