Jacques Brel - Ne me quitte pas (English translation)

English translation

Ne Me Quitte Pas

Don't forsake me, please,
This must be forgot,
All can be forgot
That already flees,
To forget the while
Of the words mis-said
And the time that's dead,
And to know how I'll
Make the hours depart
That killed by and by
(By a blow of why)
The enraptured heart.
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please.
 
I'll offer you
Pearls made of rain
From a domain
Where rain never falls.
I'll mine the ground days
Till death and beyond
To have your shape donned
With gold and with rays.
I'll make your realm seen
Where love's king of all,
With law at love's call
Where you'll be the queen.
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please.
 
Don't forsake me, please,
I'll invent for you
Babble meant for you
Only you can seize.
I will turn you to
Lovers that one sees
When their hearts unfreeze
Twice from burning through.
There'a king I'll find
In the histories
Dead by reason he's
Seen but you in mind.
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please.
 
We have seen how oft
Ancient flames have sprayed
From old peaks aloft
That we thought decayed.
Seems we can attest
To the blackened field
Where more wheat will yield
Than at April's best.
And when twilight's back
And the sky flames red,
The red and the black
Do not ever wed.
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please.
 
Don't forsake me, please,
I won't weep and fret,
I won't speak, I'll yet
Hide for your sake, please,
Staring, if you'll let,
As you dance and grin,
Hear as you perfect
Songs and laugh again.
Let me be the twin
Shadow of your shade,
Shadow of your hand,
Shadow of your hound.
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please,
Don't forsake me, please.
