Charlotte Gainsbourg 5:55

A cinq heures cinquante-cinq

Awake with open eyes

A drift upon the night

And miles away from land

Five fifty five

Five fifty five

A cinq heures cinquante-cinq

Ante meridiem

Too late to end it now

Too early to start again

Five fifty five

Five fifty five

Soon the morning will arrive

Can I begin another day

Whilst this old day is still alive

Refusing to be put away

Five fifty five

No sleep tonight

Five fifty five

Like a beast awaits its faith

Laid here with time to kill

The very dead of night

Where time and space stand still

Five fifty five

Five fifty five

A cinq heures cinquante-cinq

Nothing will ever change

On the altar of my thought

I sacrifice myself again and again and again

Five fifty five

Five fifty five
