Regina Spektor; Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)

on

It has been a long time that I haven’t played any Regina Spektor’s song. As far as I remember, her last song that I have been listened to was “Samson” Yes, the story of Samson and Delilah from the bible. I love her style, it seems to be classical inspired by characters, punk and folks. She rarely writes a song but then the music just follow her.

I was browsing for some make-up tutorials of Michelle Phan in youtube and I have heard this song playing over the background. It was cute and sweet watching Michelle Phan in her tutorial with this song. I will be downloading this and include in my music list, it is making me feel happy :D.

Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)

Down on Bowery they lose their
Ball-eyes and their lip-mouths in the night,
And stumbling through the streets they say,
“Sir, do you got a light?
And if you do then you’re my friend,
And if you don’t then you’re my foe,
And if you are a deity of any sort
Then please don’t go.”

Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas

And down on Lexington they’re wearing
New shoes stuck to aging feet,
And close their eyes and open,
And I recognize the aging street,
And think about how things were right
When they were young and veins were tight
And if you are the ghost of Christmas Past
Then won’t you stay the night?

Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas

Down in Bronxy-Bronx the kids go
Sledding down snow-covered slopes
And frozen noses, frozen toes
And frozen city starts to glow
And yes, they know that it’ll melt
And yes, the know New York will thaw
But if you are a friend of any sort
Then play along and catch a cold!

Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas

I love Paris in the rain.
I love Paris in the rain.
I love, I love, in the rain…

I love, I love, in the rain…
