I've Seen That Face Before / Libertango Lyrics - Grace Jones
Review The Song (5)
Strange, I've seen that face before,
Seen him hanging 'round my door,
Like a hawk stealing for the prey,
Like the night waiting for the day,
Strange, he shadows me back home,
Footsteps echo on the stones,
Rainy nights, on Hausmann Boulevard,
Parisian music, drifting from the bars,
Tu cherches quoi, rencontrer la mort,
Tu te prends pour qui, toi aussi tu detestes la vie,
Dance in bars and restaurants,
Home with anyone who wants,
Strange he's standing there alone,
Staring eyes chill me to the bone.
Dans sa chambre, Joel et sa valise,
un regard sur ses fringues,
sponsored linksSur les murs, des photos,
Sans regret, sans mélo,
La porte est claquée, Joel est barré.

History behind the song | Reviewer: Olya Z | 8/9/12
I also heard the song in the film Frantic, and have been listening to it for years. I recently heard a classical piece, I think by Frederic Chopin. Grace Jones' song is a re-make of that piece!!! I can't find the name of the Chopin piece, though.
Buddah Bar type music | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/1/10
If you like this song you will love some of the Buddah Bar series of CD's. My husband and I loved listening to them so much, we visited the Buddah Bar( where they play /sell this type of music)situated in the Concorde area of Paris - we were not dissapointed- what an atmosphere!

i also first heard this song in the movie "frantic" back in 1991, full 16 years ago and for the last 16 years i've been yearning to hear it again, i did not know though it was by grace jones. i am so happy i get to hear it again. this song conjure up images of parisian life for me. for this song alone i would love to learn french.

Also first heard this track in the film Frantic and again heard it for the second time recently, so haunting, love it. So surprised it is Grace Jones!!
Parisian Fabulousness | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/4/05
Love this song! First heard in 'Frantic' - film with Harrison Ford. Bought the Island Life album solely to get this song and have fallen madly in love with Grace's sound. If you are ever feeling like sitting in a smoky parisian cafe then play this song!
