Music Monday – Protège Moi by Placebo

Hey everyone!

It’s time for another Music Monday! For this week’s song, I have chosen Protège Moi by Placebo.

Music Monday was created by Drew over on The Tattooed Book Geek.


Protège Moi by Placebo

Protège Moi is a French language version of Protect Me from What I Want from Placebo’s fourth album, Sleeping with Ghosts. It was released as a single in France only on 8th April 2004. It also features on 2016 Sleeping With Ghosts: B-Sides, the 2016 A Place For Us To Dream compilation, and the bands 2004 greatest hits album Once More with Feeling: Singles 1996–2004.

This is one of my favourite songs of all time, and has been since I was about 9 years old (which was in 2005). My sister got me in to Placebo around that time, and I have loved them ever since. I actually give full credit to my sister for 90% of my music taste, because her influence in my childhood really opened me up to genres and artists that weren’t mainstream/typically played on the radio, and many of which I still listen to and love today.


Lyrics:

C’est le malaise du moment
L’épidémie qui s’étend
La fête est finie on descend
Les pensées qui glacent la raison
Paupières baissées, visage gris
Surgissent les fantômes de notre lit
On ouvre le loquet de la grille
Du taudis qu’on appelle maison

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me
Protect me

Protège-moi, protège-moi
Protège-moi, protège-moi
Protège-moi, protège-moi
Protège-moi, protège-moi

Sommes nous les jouets du destin
Souviens toi des moments divins
Planants, éclatés au matin
Et maintenant nous sommes tout seuls
Perdus les rêves de s’aimer
Les temps où on n’avait rien fait
Il nous reste toute une vie pour pleurer
Et maintenant nous sommes tout seuls

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me
Protect me

Protect me from what I want (Protège-moi, protège-moi)
Protect me from what I want (Protège-moi, protège-moi)
Protect me from what I want (Protège-moi, protège-moi)
Protect me
Protect me

Protège-moi, protège-moi
Protège-moi de mes désirs
Protège-moi, protège-moi

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me
Protect me
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me
Protect me
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me
Protect me
