Lyrics

Toi que j’aime, tu m’as fait tant de peine
Mais comment effacer les jours passés?
Tant de peine, au long des jours je traîne
Mendiant au souvenir, un peu de toi
Ta voix dans un rêve, je m’en souviens
Murmurait sans trêve, ne demandait rien
Tu étais si tendre ce soir d’été
Comment se défendre de t’écouter?

Toi que j’aime, tu m’as fait tant de peine
Mais comment effacer les jours passés?
Plus personne et ma vie monotone
S’égrène au long des jours sans ton amour

Sans toi je frissonne, cherchant ta main
Dans la nuit d’automne j’espère en vain
Et pourtant quand même ma vie en moi
Me hurle: Je n’aime, n’aime que toi

Toi que j’aime, tu m’as fait tant de peine
Mais comment effacer les jours passés?
Ta voix, tes lèvres, emprisonnent ma fièvre
Mais comment effacer les jours passés?

You, that I love, you made me so much sad
But how to erase the passing days?
So much sadness, whole days long I’m hanging around
Begging to my remembrance, a little bit from you
Your voice in a dream, I remember
Whispered unremittingly, didn’t ask nothing
You were so tender this summer night
How to forbid myself to not listen?

You, that I love, you made me so much sad
But how to erase the passing days?
Nobody any more and my monotonous life
Is marking out every days without your love

Without you I’m shivering, looking for your hand
In the autumn night I’m hoping, in vain
And nevertheless really my life inside of me
Scream to me: I only love, only love you

You, that I love, you made me so much sad
But how to erase the passing days?
Your voice, your lips, imprisoned my fever
But how to erase the passing days?
