I am the messenger,
Flown in again from very far.
I flew through the barrier;
I am the carrier.

No light on the northern sea,
The wounded moon, broken, buried there.
Honed in again on where you are
For I am the messenger.

I ring the warning bell.
My wounded breast bears a message there:
Along the Meuse, running parallel
They’re shooting down the messengers

Call me 'votre cher ami'
I guess I saved the day.
A wooden leg and a silver star,
And restful death for the messenger
