Red Brick Wall

outside my window
is a red brick wall
the clay changes color
with the leaves in fall
lords and vassals
live in wrought iron castles
but you don’t see them at all

her highness the queen
of the fire escape
wears stained-glass earrings
with a Jackie-esque cape

she decides
if you stay alive
and if the time is too late
she climbs through the grate

quand ma cite dort
mon esprit est calm
puis, la lumiere d’or
séchera mon ame

his highness the king
he eats dreams
he’ll cling to your screen
to steal your sleep

both good and bad
will keep him fed
just stay in bed
try not to scream
if him you see

the lords and ladies
misbehave
they ride on bats
they have not tamed

when you meet them
you will wish to fly away
and forget the day

quand ma cite dort
mon esprit est calme
puis, la lumiere d’or
séchera mon ame

i get bites
from devils at night
and their venom is mixing
my wrong with my right

i rather like that red brick wall
it keeps my soul from flying out of sight

don’t really like that red brick wall
it keeps my soul from flying out

I remember the french refrain(!)
I must hear this song (and others) when we exchange(!)
