lyrics

VERSE:
Isabelle waits by the window her eyes meet The sky in the afternoon glow She sees the sun even before it comes when the mountains give it away.
Down past the street is a church and a vineyard When she was a child she’d run through. Now she sits still while I play on piano The sun no longer moves.

CHORUS:
Isabelle tell me again Oh I remember your stories so well. How could I ever know? For you the world lived on in echoes

VERSE:
Often I’d find her asleep in the garden The one-eyed cat slept by her feet Then in a moment she’d rise and the old woman watched the sun took my hair; she’d say
Colors are what make a girl And this world is so fragile, so hold on for life. You have the heart of a child and I understood then That she was mine.

CHORUS:
Isabelle tell me again Oh I remember your stories so well. How could I ever know? For you the world lived on in echoes

BRIDGE:
Here when the sun meets the sky I can hear your lullabye:
“Cherie... toujours je t’aime pourquoi il n’y a rien de toi?
je reste toute seule la nuit et l’aube c’est moi sans autre...
jusqu’ a la fin du monde...

INTERLUDE

CHORUS:
Isabelle tell me again Oh I remember your stories so well. How could I ever know? For you the world lived on in echoes

REPEAT CHORUS
