Lyrics

Un premier amour, premier amour, premier amour
Ne s'oublie jamais, s'oublie jamais, s'oublie jamais
Un premier amour, on le cherche toujours
Dans d'autres amours, toute sa vie on court après

Il nous a troublés et fait rêver et fait trembler
Ce premier amour, premier amour, premier amour
Mais l'enfant qu'on est, l'enfant qu'on est resté
Frémira toujours au souvenir de cet amour

Et toi, et toi que j'aimais
Qu'as-tu fait de toi?
Qu'as-tu fait sans moi?
Et moi, moi qui t'ai perdu
Qu'ai-je fait de plus?
Qu'ai-je fait de tant de bonheur?
Savions-nous d'ailleurs...

Qu'un premier amour, premier amour, premier amour
Ne s'oublie jamais, s'oublie jamais, s'oublie jamais?
Qu'un premier amour, on le cherche toujours
Dans d'autres amours, toute sa vie on court après?

Que tous ces baisers qu'on s'est volés plus que donnés
Ces gestes innocents nous engageaient pour si longtemps?
Non, les enfants d'alors que nous étions encore
N'ont pas soupçonné tant, ils étaient émerveillés
Qu'un premier amour, leur premier amour était si fort

A first love, first love, first love
Is never forgotten, never forgotten, never forgotten
A first love, we always look for it
In other loves, we pursue it our whole life

It confused us and made us dream and made us tremble
That first love, first love, first love
But the child that we are, the child that we remained
Will always hum in memory of this love

And you, and you who I loved
What did you make of yourself?
What have you done without me?
And I, I who lost you
What have I done more?
Was I so much more lucky?
Did we actually know...

That a first love, first love, first love
Is never forgotten, never forgotten, never forgotten?
That a first love, we always look for it
In other loves, we pursue it our whole life?

That all those kisses that we have stolen rather than given
Those innocent gestures engaged us for so long?
No, the children that we still were back then
Didn't suspect much, they were delighted
That a first love, their first love was so strong
