J'ai seul la clef de cette parade sauvage.

Oh my dear friend
You've been here all along
And your love for me is stronger
Than the meaning of this song

And if you find me lying
Bleeding on the street
You can blame yourself for letting me
Try and meet my fate

And if you hear the crying
Floating on the wind
You'll know that it's my friend and I
Grieving over him.

And if you see the bodies
Hanging from the trees
It's all because they reached a goal
We have yet to see

And if you feel that you've been wronged
And you're crying by my side
I'll let you know that everything
Has always been alright

And though we may not see it
And others always will
My love for you is stronger
Than all your calming pills

So let us save our ignorance
And stay just two friends
Cause once we break each other's hearts
The pain will never end

So if you find me lying
Bleeding in the streets
We only have ourselves to blame
Our hearts too young to meet

So if we hear the crying
Floating on the wind
Remember it's others hearts
Breaking for a whim

So if we see those bodies
Hanging from the tree
It's because they could not live without
Their one and only mate

So don't give up
We're staying strong
Two friends against the world
To prove to one another
We don't need love at all

And don't give in
We'll live through this
Just us against the world
