Le Meridien

Le Meridien

Across the River Thames
On a Sunday morning
The smell of the air
A tiny noise

Dark blades of grass
Trees and big clouds
Factory smokes
And plastic balloons

Moving around the Meridian Line
And hearing from there
Some silly jokes

Families stroll
Children circle
Couples kissing
And grandma’s sitting

Today there’s a frontier
A big white line
Today the season’s changing
What’s coming next?

Everything is in it’s right place
Today someone is missing
This is point blank

A little later
On a Sunday night
Sitting on a train
Under the sea

Lights are flashing
Speed and fat boys
Computer screens
Smoking second class

No troubles here
A safety place
Drinking coffee
In a plastic cup

Writing postcards
Nothing in mind
All is quiet
Under control

Tonight there’s a frontier
A big white line
Right on the middle
Of the channel

Tonight I’m back in France
What’s coming next?
Tonight someone’s missing
This is point blank

Le Meridian by Yann Tiersen.

The song is available on the albums C’Etait Ici and L’Absente.

Thiersen also composed the soundtrack of the film Amelie and the soundtrack of the film Goodbye Lenin.
