(Sleeping With Ghosts)
Lyrics and explanation


Bulletproof Cupid - Placebo

Lyrics : Placebo

Centrefolds

Come on Balthazar
I refuse to let you die
Come on fallen star
I refuse to let you die

'Cause it's wrong
And I've been waiting far too long
And that's wrong
I've been waiting far too long
For you to be
Be mine

All the centrefolds
That you can't afford
They've long since waved their last goodbyes
All the centrefolds
That you can't afford
You've long since faded from their eyes

So be
Be mine
Press Quotes

(Translation, quote in French here)

"On all our albums, there are several ballads. With Stefan and Steve, were were moderately interested in falling into the cliché "Placebo, it's sad." So we tell ourselves we would do only one, just to please this part of our audience. This is a track written by Stefan six years ago at the piano. It's about the role reversal in relationships, the lost power, a very desperate form of love, very unclean, impossible.

Brian Molko, Les Inrockuptibles N°382 : March-April 2003



Brian: "Someone telling a washed-up celebrity “I’m the best you can get now so you’d better be mine.” It’s about obsession, questions of status and self-degradation".

Brian Molko, interview, Rock Sound, April 2003
