​The Collection Of Marie Claire

This song is by Daniel Lanois and appears on the album For The Beauty Of Wynona (1993).

Marie-Claire, j'ai marche toute la soiree
Ton portrait toujours pres de mon coeur
Je veux te dire que je t'ai reve tout l'ete
Marie-Claire, s'il te plait, n'est pas peur

I bought you some colours to paint with
On the nights when it's cold outside
And I'll shoot that blue-eyed son of a bitch
'Cause it's me who'll have you for his bride

Marie-Claire, it's no good la vie d'une danseuse
Tous les yeux, they're on you, I can't stand
Don't you know that you are my amoureuse
Marie Claire, let them all be damned

My hands have bled to the bone
I brought you a drawing to see
Of the cabin made of sticks and stones
And there you will learn to love me

Marie Claire, j'ai sale beaucoup d' poissons
Et les bois du Nord maintenant sont tranquilles
Je te promet de ne pas boire la boisson
Oublie le Montreal, la vieille ville

As I lay you there on the back seat
All in white there, dans mon char
Take your time Marie Claire and sleep
As I bring you up to Labrador
