Tekno Love Poem

Tekno Love Poem

This is my transcription of the poem which Cocorosie sometimes plays at live performances.
I do not know the name of the author to give credit.

I fell in love with a bad, bad man
Ever since I met him been sad, sad, sad
June faded into blooms, a September moon waned and grew
Your perfume haunted me long after I saw the swing of heaven’s gate openin’ toward me

Luxurious in your arms, your smile is the cool sun in the dark
Misery rejoices when you’re near and fever
No sign of sickness keeps me burnin’ down in my heart

Winter melts, she shys away quiet like the silence a dying star makes
I’m a jail bird to your music, a criminal in your prayers
I watch you in your sleep even when you’re not there

Picture this: your lips on my lips –
The mirror have to do for now ’cause you vanished like a cloud
Rainbows wept color all over the streets
When you went away maybe one day we’ll meet

“Oh woman,” you’re callin’ me
Haven’t slept a wink since 1916
I wasn’t born then but sure feels time’s been tickin’

Shadows parade outside my door
I wish we were dancin’ ‘cross this old floor
Car horns honkin’ down that dirty street
I wish you were yellin’ – tellin’ “wash my feet!”

Lipstick I’d wear for one million years
just to stop the tears your eyes would grow, falling…
