French
Seule aujourd’hui, je regarde ma vie
Qui défile au gré de mes nuits
Parfois je me sens égoïste et perdue
Eperdument triste

Je lui ai dit qu’il s’en aille
Comme une longue bataille que je voulais gagner
J’ai cru bon de tenir, de ne pas le retenir
Aujourd’hui me manquent les larmes

Mon cœur l’aime, quand j’y pense
J’ai beau me fier aux apparences
Qu’il m’emmène même loin
Je lui donnerai la main

Il m’a volé trop de larmes
En échange il m’a laissé son âme
Mais j’attendrai qu’il revienne
Pour tout recommencer

Et j’ai cru que tout était rose
Comme le bleu de son regard magique
Qu’il n’y avait qu’à lui sourire
Et lui mentir pour lui appartenir

Je lui ai dit qu’il s’en aille
Comme une longue bataille que je voulais gagner
J’ai cru bon de tenir, de ne pas le retenir
Aujourd’hui me manquent les larmes

Mon cœur l’aime, quand j’y pense
J’ai beau me fier aux apparences
Qu’il m’emmène même loin
Je lui donnerai la main

Il m’a volé trop de larmes
En échange il m’a laissé son âme
Mais j’attendrai qu’il revienne
Pour tout recommencer

Mon cœur l’aime, quand j’y pense
J’ai beau me fier aux apparences
Qu’il m’emmène même loin
Je lui donnerai la main

Il m’a volé trop de larmes
En échange il m’a laissé son âme
Mais j’attendrai qu’il revienne
Pour tout recommencer

Mon cœur l’aime, quand j’y pense
J’ai beau me fier aux apparences
Qu’il m’emmène même loin
Je lui donnerai la main

Translation
Alone today, I watch my life
Passing by to the rhythm of my nights
Sometimes I feel selfish and lost
Desperately sad

I told him that he had to go away
Like a long battle that I wanted to win
I thought it necessary to hold out, not to keep him
Today tears fail me

My heart loves him, when I think of it
I shouldn’t allow myself to go by appearance
But even if he takes me far away
I will give him my hand

He stole too many tears from me
In exchange he left me his soul
But I’ll wait for him to return
To start everything over again

And I thought everything was all roses
Like the blue of his magical gaze
I only had to smile at him
And lie to him to belong to him

I told him that he had to go away
Like a long battle that I wanted to win
I thought it necessary to hold out, not to keep him
Today tears fail me

My heart loves him, when I think of it
I shouldn’t allow myself to go by appearance
But even if he takes me far away
I will give him my hand

He stole too many tears from me
In exchange he left me his soul
But I’ll wait for him to return
To start everything over again

My heart loves him, when I think of it
I shouldn’t allow myself to go by appearance
But even if he takes me far away
I will give him my hand

He stole too many tears from me
In exchange he left me his soul
But I’ll wait for him to return
To start everything over again

My heart loves him, when I think of it
I shouldn’t allow myself to go by appearance
But even if he takes me far away
I will give him my hand
