"Un ange frappe a ma porte
Est-ce que je le laisse entrer
Ce n'est pas toujours ma faute
Si les choses sont cassées
Le diable frappe a ma porte
Il demande a me parler
Il y a en moi toujours l'autre
Attiré par le danger"


I once loved someone as cold, as hard
As a diamond.
Frozen and flawless.
No matter what my methods;
How I tried,
Strove,
Reached higher and higher
I almost never touched them.
They stood far above me,
Aloof,
Aloft,
Separated.
But that may have been
A fault of my own
For I placed them on a tower, a pedestal so high
That if they were to fall
They would surely perish.
But-
Once in a blue moon,
Once in a nightingale’s song,
I managed to pluck a shard of emotion
From the shimmering façade
And was rewarded for my efforts
With a single
Glass
Kiss.
