LyricsEdit


ROGER:
What'd you forget?

MIMI:
Got a light?

ROGER:
I know you? -- You're --
You're shivering

MIMI:
It's nothing
They turned off my heat
And I'm just a little
Weak on my feet
Would you light my candle?
What are you staring at?

ROGER:
Nothing
Your hair in the moonlight
You look familiar
Can you make it?

MIMI:
Just haven't eaten much today
At least the room stopped spinning.
Anyway. What?

ROGER:
Nothing
Your smile reminded me of --

MIMI:
I always remind people of -- who is she?

ROGER:
She died. Her name was April

MIMI:
It's out again
Sorry about your friend
Would you light my candle?

ROGER:
Well --

MIMI:
Yeah. Ow!

ROGER:
Oh, the wax -- it's --

MIMI:
Dripping! I like it -- between my --

ROGER:
Fingers. I figured...
Oh, well. Goodnight.

It blew out again?

MIMI:
No -- I think that I dropped my stash

ROGER:
I know I've seen you out and about
When I used to go out
Your candle's out

MIMI:

I'm illin' --
I had it when I walked in the door
It was pure --
Is it on the floor?

ROGER:
The floor?

MIMI:
They say I have the best ass below 14th street
Is it true?

ROGER
What?

MIMI:
You're staring again.

ROGER:
Oh no.
I mean you do -- have a nice --
I mean -- You look familiar

MIMI:
Like your dead girlfriend?

ROGER:
Only when you smile.
But I'm sure I've seen you somewhere else --

MIMI:
Do you go to the Cat Scratch Club?
That's where I work - I dance

ROGER:
Yes!
They used to tie you up --

MIMI:
It's a living

ROGER:
I didn't recognize you
Without the handcuffs

MIMI:
We could light the candle
Oh won't you light the candle?

ROGER
Why don't you forget that stuff
You look like you're sixteen

MIMI:
I'm nineteen -- but I'm old for my age
I'm just born to be bad

ROGER:
I once was born to be bad
I used to shiver like that

MIMI
I have no heat -- I told you

ROGER
I used to sweat

MIMI
I got a cold

ROGER
Uh huh
I used to be a junkie

MIMI
But now and then I like to --

ROGER
Uh huh

MIMI
Feel good

ROGER
Here it -- um --

Mimi
What's that?

ROGER:
It's a candy bar wrapper

MIMI:
We could light the candle
What'd you do with my candle?

ROGER:
That was my last match

MIMI:
Our eyes'll adjust, thank God for the moon

ROGER:
Maybe it's not the moon at all
I hear Spike Lee's shooting down the street

MIMI:
Bah humbug ... Bah humbug

ROGER:
Cold hands

MIMI:
Yours too.
Big. Like my father's
You wanna dance?

ROGER:
With you?

MIMI:
No -- with my father

ROGER:
I'm Roger

MIMI:
They call me
They call me Mimi
