To the rhythm of a gypsy beat
In the quarter, where the vampires meet
on a man, with his collar raised in shame
it starts to rain

With the longing of an empty glass
through the window where his childhood passed
to the backing of a late night train
he calls her name, he calls her name

And far away across the wine-dark sea
a woman hears her name upon the wind
she paints her face on, pulls on her battledress
and greets the night.

Oh Giselle! I delighted in you
and with jealous eyes, the gods did too
so they took the light that grew
inside of you

Oh Giselle! I delighted in you
and with jealous eyes the gods did too.
So they took the light that in you grew.
