Ever since I saw La petit putain, waaaay back when, I've found Charlotte Gainsbourg to be so incredibly beautiful - and last year she made beautiful music. She has such a delicate voice, and a sweet, subtle accent.
I love this song, and I get lost in these quiet lyrics;
I saw somebody who/ reminded me of you/ before you got afraid/i wish that you could've stayed that way/i saw a little girl/i stopped and smiled at her/ she screamed and ran away/ it happens to me more and more these days//and these songs that you sing/ do they mean anything/ to the people you're singing them to/ people like you
i saw a photograph/a woman in a bath/ of hundred dollar bills/if the cold doesn't kill her, money will//i read a magazine/that said by seventeen/ your life was at an end/ i'm dead and i'm perfectly content//and these songs that i sing/ do they mean anything/ to the people i'm singing them to/ people like you// and these songs that we sing/ do they mean anything/ to the people we're singing them to// tonight they do
