Regina Spektor – Don't Leave Me lyrics

Down on Bowery they lose their
Ball-eyes and their lip-mouths in the night,
And stumbling through the streets they say,
"Sir, do you have a light?"
And if you do then you're my friend,
And if you don't then you're my foe,
And if you are a deity of any sort
Then please don't go.

Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas

And down on Lexington they're wearing
New shoes stuck to aging feet,
And close you're eyes and open,
And you'll recognize the aging street,
And thing about how things were right
When they were young and veins were tight
And if you are the ghost of Christmas Past
Then wont you stay the night?

Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas

Down in Bronxy-Bronx the kids go
Sledding down snow-covered slopes
And frozen noses, frozen toes
And frozen city starts to glow
And yes, they know that it'll melt
And yes, the know New York will thaw
But if you are a friend of any sort
Then play along and catch a cold!

Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas
Ne Me Quitte Pas, Mon Chere
Ne Me Quitte Pas

I love Paris in the rain.
I love, I love, in the rain...

    It's all about time. The three verses are present, past and future. On bowery, the drunks who live only for the moment, and who only care about you for what you can do for them right now. On lexington, aging people nostalgic for the past, who want you to stay the night if you can help them relive it. In the bronx, the children who are our future talk about when the snow will melt and getting a cold later for what we do now.
    The chorus translates to something like "don't leave me, my dear," asking someone who is part of both her past and present to also be in her future.
    As for the end, well, we'll always have paris.
