this one's for you charlotte...

this one's for you charlotte
but your ears are elsewhere, charlotte
from the corner of harcourt road
and charlotte street
i weep... tears freeze on my cheek,
and in your hair, the air there turned to snow
as you turned to go.

encore une verre du vin, charlotte
et on va danser une valse, toi et moi
on chante brassens et on flotte
sur la rue du charlotte
on parle d'amour dans la neige
la tempete qui tombe comme une passion entre les paroles
et cette passion ne parte jamais, je te jure
mais tu tourne, quand-meme, et tu parte

this one's for you charlotte
but you couldn't be with us tonight
so i sing to the glass in my hand
and hear your voice from behind

tu dit qu'on n'existe pas, que cette rue n'est pas vraiment la
une larme reste dans ma voix, charlotte, quand je tourne aux yeux ferme
aux mains tremblement avec une reve sur ma langue pour charlotte
de l'espoir, d'avenir, d'une vie parfaite
may i have this dance charlotte?

this one's for you charlotte
i lay my glass at your feet
and watch it fill with snow
as you turn to go
