La Voisin,
I looked for you,
I beg of you,
Make me whole again.

I was told:
“Go, abandon your shocking life, and then
come and throw yourself at the feet of the
ministers of Jesus Christ!”
She’s the rose of Versailles,
She’s a thorn in my side,
A strange marionette,
despite it all, I loved her once.

La Voisin,
Oh, what a rosy dream we’ve had.
I tried my hand at courtly affectation,
look how I failed.

Turning to fashionable madness,
pox patches, black masses,
She knows how to love, but I’ve made hate the latest style.
Despite attempting at pretension, it’s the places that I’ve been,
It’s the books that I have read
that made me what I am:
A wicked girl,
A strange marionette.
One who’s been too long looking at the Sun.

La Voisin,
I’ll give you my diamonds,
I’ll give you these red, red rubies for:
the bones of toads, the teeth of moles,
Spanish flies, iron filings, human blood,
and mummy dust
to make him love me again.

Or, should I abandon my shocking life,and then
come and throw myself at the feet of the
ministers of Jesus Christ?
La Voisin,
look at me now!

A lonely ghost,
A strange marionette,
One whose time is almost over.

Maybe someday she’ll understand.
Maybe someday she’ll understand.
Maybe someday she’ll understand.
