lyrics

Lou Andreas-Salomé was a Russian-born
lady / And every time I think about you I
think about her
I speak the truth let me tell you her story /
Born in St-Petersburg in the 19 th century /
And ever since we think about her we miss
what she has done

Underneath her fur coat there was a skin so
white and so thin you could see her veins /
Make you need so much to be kin that she
would lead your aims
Well I tell you pal when she was through with
you / You where good for the dogs / You
where one of the few / And no matter how
you cope with that / You’d be the one who’s
set back

And she’d say: If you have no more happiness
to give, then give me your pain / Couple of
correspondences, couple of dried flowers,
then give me your pain

I speak the truth, she makes me think about
you / The way you make them your dog /
The way you leave them blue / And what’s
unique about both of you gals It’s the one
you choose

I speak about you, can’t you see / The rest
you leave behind, they’ll be known for years /
And no matter how you cope with that, you’ll
be remembered for tears
