[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]
It's 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
Do you wanna dance?

[Roger]
With you?

[Mimi]
No with my father

[Roger]
I'm Roger

[Mimi]
They call me
They call me Mimi
