My Soul Is Slashed / Meine Seele ist Zerschlagen / Minha Alma é Ferida / Que mon cœur Lâche

Originally recorded as a charity single, the song deals with AIDS and caused some controversy. The song was rejected as the lyrics were considered to be too ambiguous.

Writing the lyrics of ‘My Soul Is Slashed’ was not easy as the French singer and songwriter Mylène Farmer was insistent that the song had to convey the right wording, rhythm, meaning, and feeling rather than being a direct and literal translation of ‘Que mon cœur lâche‘.

Silence falls
God I’m cold
Our dancing souls
Now funbling ghosts

You poison love
Poison tears
Our happiness
Gives way to fear

You’re between us
Rubber lust
You slither in around
My love

How should I feel
Should I deal
When suddenly
You’re inside me

My soul is slashed
I get so lost without you
My dreams collapse
My pain is pulling me through
My soul is slashed

But tie me right up
With your roses and lips
The times are masked
Love in a bag, so sad
But baby do me

Who’s that angel
Who comes and falls
To cruzify
All my desires

No place to hide
J’ai si mal
I’m lost in time
I’ve learned to cry

My Soul Is Slashed
