Not 100% certain about all of this, but I think it's pretty close:


Itís a heartwarming song
For the easily moved
The effect is all wrong
Plain to see Iím not moved

As I stand in the light
Of a shop that is closed
God, Iíd love me a fight
Thereís no poem just prose

Edith Piaf said it better than me
ďJe ne regrette rienĒ
Pretty song, but not intended for me
Time to put some muzak on

There were no smoky dives
Few amours, fous or not
There were no petty crimes
Foreign substances bought

There were no midnight drives
With a crime bossís wife
Need a sentence at most
When assessing my life

Drunken and short-lived flings
Montparnasse lights
Holding a hand of kings
My hunch was right
Whenís that night?

Live fast and die young
Live fast and die young
Live fast and die young
Too late for that
Too late for that

Think of one single night
Wants so strong youíre aflame
Well Iím sorry timeís up
Sorry, nothing will change

I was born to be bad
I was born to be bad
I was born to be bad
Not this time
Not this time

Love the dark toned, brooding imagery. Feel like I'm captivated watching a film that could only be made so well in France.

Now heard three versions of this song: live, the single and the acoustic version. Enthralled each time. Every listen I hear something additional, something special.

The acoustic version is truly excellent and they should definitely play it at the concerts

I can imagine it being refined live "Babys taking me home" style with one of those slow build ups and power endings.

Search for "Paste Music" on Facebook and you'll find acoustic performances of Missionary, Edith and This Town.
