Je te vois enfin

Pardonnez-leur ils ne savent pas ce qu’ils ont fait

J’ai plongé mes mains dans la terre du sentier

Pardonnez-leur ils ne savent plus où ils vont

Elle m’attendait près du ruisseau pour me parler

Il meurt en leur âme à la fois autre chose

Ils ont les larmes et les pétales de rose

J’ai dit

J’ai dit

Je crois qu’ils ont trop souffert

Et que demeure Londres !

Nous nous étions assemblés en moins d’une seconde

Oh, mon père je crois qu’ils ont péché

j’ai plongé mes mains dans la terre du sentier

Il est impossible dans vos livres de ne pas pécher !

Elle m’attendait près du ruisseau pour me parler

Nous qui savons lire, nous qui vous l’avons appris pour vous faire plaisir !

Pardonnez monseigneur nous étions encerclés

Je me souviens jeune animal je courais bien loin

Dans la forêt pour chercher mon chemin

J’étais perdu mais comptait seulement le présent

Le soleil qui perce à travers les feuilles d’ambre et de menthe et je vois

oh je vois ma femme

La même histoire depuis la course des âmes

Animal ou poisson, tu n’as pas changé

Il semblerait que depuis toujours je t’ai cherché

Mon amour rime avec toujours,

toujours !

Et les choix sont faits

Et les choix se font

Un pied devant l’autre

Et seconde après seconde …

Enfant, enfant

Je te vois enfant !

Oh mon amour te voilà je te vois enfin !

Enfin, enfin

Je te vois enfin

Oh mon amour te voilà je te vois enfin

Translated:

I finally see you

Forgive them, they know not what they have done

I plunged my hands in the path’s soil

Forgive them, they know not where they’re going anymore

She was waiting by the stream to speak with me

Within their soul dies something other at once *

They have the tears and the rose petals

I said

I said

I believe they have suffered too much

And London shall remain!

We had gathered in less than a second

Oh father, I think they have sinned

I plunged my hands in the path’s soil

In your books it is impossible not to sin!

She was waiting by the stream to speak with me

We who know how to read, we who learned to please you!

Forgive us my lord we were surrounded

I remember young animal I was running so far

Into the forest to look for my path

I was lost but counted only the present

The sun that pierced through the leaves of amber and mint and I see

Oh I see my wife **

The same story since the race of souls

Animal or fish, you haven’t changed

It would seem that I have looked for you forever

My love rhymes with always,

always!

And the choices are made

And the choices are being made

One foot before the other

And second after second…

Child, child

I see you as a child!

Oh my love here you are I finally see you!

At last, at last

I finally see you

Oh my love here you are I finally see you

* this is an attempt at a poetic translation since the original line in French has no “clear” meaning in the sense that it’s a sort of poetic collage

** original word in French is “femme” which can mean both wife and woman
