Crowded House - Pour Le Monde Lyrics




He imagines the world
As the angel ascending
Like the ghost of a man
Who is tied up to the chair

And he tries to believe
That his life has a meaning
With his hand on his heart
Pour le monde, pas pour la guerre

And I wake up blind
Like my dreams were too bright
And I lost my regard
For the good things that I had
And the radio was sad

When you listen for good
In a hope that comes to nothing
‘Cos the liars have moved in
And they believe their own
Dark medicine

They act so nonchalant
But he is not a dog
Perform for you in the stadium
For the world, not for the war

And he won't hesitate
Though it might lead to heartache
In the night club indigo
For the world, not for the war
Pour le monde, pas pour la guerre

When you listen for good
In a hope that comes to nothing
'Cos the liars have moved in
And they brew their own
Dark medicine
Believing it's good
Behind their jaded eyes,
A dilemma

He's the best
You ever had
He's so low
You'll never know

Crowded House Pour Le Monde Comments
  1. Rick D.

    War is the place humans go when they lose their hope of the good things.
    The liars creep in and everyone is infected with the lie.
    Good is the promise of redemption from the worst mistakes.

    "Pour Le Monde"

    He imagines the world
    As the angel ascending
    Like the ghost of a man
    Who is tied up to the chair

    And he tries to believe
    That his life has a meaning
    With his hand on his heart
    Pour le monde, pas pour la guerre

    And I wake up blind
    Like my dreams were too bright
    And I lost my regard
    For the good things that I had
    And the radio was sad

    When you listen for good
    In a hope that comes to nothing
    ‘Cos the liars have moved in
    And they believe their own
    Dark medicine

    They act so nonchalant
    But he is not a dog
    Perform for you in the stadium
    For the world, not for the war

    And he won't hesitate
    Though it might lead to heartache
    In the night club indigo
    For the world, not for the war
    Pour le monde, pas pour la guerre

    When you listen for good
    In a hope that comes to nothing
    'Cos the liars have moved in
    And they brew their own
    Dark medicine
    Believing it's good
    Behind their jaded eyes,
    A dilemma

    He's the best
    You ever had
    He's so low
    You'll never know
