PRUSSIAN BLUE -Marianne Faithfull

Walking over the bridge
To l’Eglise Américaine
65 Quai d’Orsay
The river ____ violent
The sky around la Sainte-_____
Cerulean blue and scarlet lei.

Can I make (get, see, bear, stand) it for just one day?
I listen to the rain(‘s) falling gray to the ground
I can feel (hear) my heart’s calling many hearts around

Trees the color of jade
The church in gold
Quai d’Orsay rose doré
I’m going upstairs
To take my place
Shadows of violet and Prussian blue

I’m walking along
Leaving the church
Feeling better in my heart of hearts
The sun sets chrome yellow with a touch of white
Clouds of lilac and leaden gray
