Lyrics

Tu t'en vas, l'amour a pour toi le sourire d'une autre
Je voudrais, mais ne peux t'en vouloir
Désormais, tu vas m'oublier
Ce n'est pas de ta faute, et pourtant tu dois savoir

Qu'après toi, je ne pourrai plus vivre
Non plus vivre qu'en souvenir de toi
Après toi, j'aurai les yeux humides
Les mains vides, le cœur sans joie
 
Avec toi, j'avais appris à rire
Et mes rires ne viennent que par toi
Après toi, je ne serai que l'ombre
De ton ombre, après toi

Même un jour, si je fais ma vie
Si je tiens la promesse qui unit deux êtres pour toujours
Après toi, je pourrai peut-être donner de ma tendresse
Mais plus rien de mon amour

Après toi, je ne pourrai plus vivre
Non plus vivre qu'en souvenir de toi
Après toi, j'aurai les yeux humides
Les mains vides, le cœur sans joie

Avec toi, j'avais appris à rire
Et mes rires ne viennent que par toi
Après toi, je ne serai que l'ombre
De ton ombre, après toi

You go away, love has for you the smile of another
I would want to, but can't be mad at you
From now on, you'll forget me
It's not your fault, but still you should know

That after you, I couldn't live anymore
I would only live remembering you
After you, I'll have wet eyes
Empty hands, a joyless heart

With you, I've learnt to laugh
And my laughs only came by you
After you, I'll only be the shadow
Of your shadow, after you

Even if I settle down one day
If I keep the promise that unites two beings for always
After you, I could perhaps give my tenderness
But not my love anymore

After you, I couldn't live anymore
I would only live remembering you
After you, I'll have wet eyes
Empty hands, a joyless heart

With you, I've learnt to laugh
And my laughs only came by you
After you, I'll only be the shadow
Of your shadow, after you
