I took the leap and I fell

Don't ask, I'm not gonna tell

And now I'm going to Hell

Because he changed his ways

I'd spare a franc for a glance

I'd sell my soul for a chance

In all this country of France

But then he changed his ways

Some guy you're holdin',

Ripped shirt, tattoo showin'

Red dawn, river swollen

Did you think that you could save me?

Hey, I just saw you

And this is hasty,

But I'm not worthy

So you can't save me

You're just a bread thief

Man of mercy

But I'm impulsive

So you can't save me

Though I just saw you

And this is hasty

I'm still not worthy

So you can't save me

And on the barricade

Thought you fazed me

But I'm impulsive

So you can't save me

I'm done; I think that I'll fall

Now that you've answered the call

To make such fools of us all!

I'm blind to all your ways

You went to prison for years

You fought through all of your tears

Your courage: I want to steal it,

But you changed your ways

This man of mercy

Ends my earthly journey

This bread thief would curse me

Did you think that you could save me?

Hey, I just saw you

And this is hasty,

But I'm not worthy

So you can't save me

You're just a bread thief

Man of mercy

But I'm impulsive

So you can't save me

Though I just saw you

And this is hasty

I'm through with waiting

So you can't save me

And on the barricade

Thought you fazed me

But I'm not yielding

So you can't save me

I'm standing over the river

No way to go on

No way to go on

I want to end this song

I'm standing over the river

No way to go on

I've suffered too long

I want to end this song

You're just a bread thief

Man of mercy

But I'm impulsive

So you can't save me

Though I just saw you

And this is hasty

I'm through with waiting

So you can't save me

And on the barricade

Thought you fazed me

But this is over

So you can't save me

I'm standing over the river

No way to go on

No way to go on

I want to end this song

I'm standing over the river

No way to go on

My will is too strong,

So you can't save me.
