According to the french forum, the voices in this song are taken from the french movie "Pepe le Moko" (starring Jean Gabin). An US remake was shot by John Crowell : Casbah (Algiers, 1938) with Charles Boyer.
Here, the english subtitles from the movie, corresponding to extracts used :
Will you come again?
- You sure?
- Same time.
I really like you.
What did you do before?
Before the diamonds.
I dreamed of them.
You really can't get rid of this Casbah?
Why do you ask?
No, they've got me boxed in. I can't hole up anywhere else. They're hunting me. If I leave here, they nail me.
Happy now? You're reassured ?
I'm neither happy nor reassured.
You're right, because I could do anything, even come looking for you
Oh good, theres a thread about this song! Cos I've listened to it a few times now...who could it be about? I dunno
1) I like the song, its growing on me.
2) I find the end bit a bit creepy!?! hahaha I dunno why, I just do....
I'm not sure I have the lyrics right but he say's something like..."Then you grip with your hand, now so small in mine. Are you aware?, wherever you are, that you have just died"... and then it goes a little strange!
I just find it eerie...I still like it but....ya know!
