French

Raphael

Quatre consonnes et trois voyelles c'est le prénom de Raphaël,

Je le murmure à mon oreille et chaque lettre m'émerveille,

C'est le tréma qui m'ensorcelle dans le prénom de Raphaël,

Comme il se mêle au "a" au "e", comme il les entremêle au "l", Raphaël...

Il a l'air d'un ange, mais c'est un diable de l'amour,

Du bout des hanches et de son regard de velours,

Quand il se penche, quand il se penche, mes nuits sont blanches,

Et pour toujours... Hmm

J'aime les notes au goût de miel, dans le prénom de Raphaël,

Je les murmure à mon réveil, entre les plumes du sommeil,

Et pour que la journée soit belle, je me parfume à Raphaël...

Peau de chagrin, peintre éternel, archange étrange d'un autre ciel...

Pas de délice, pas d'étincelle, pas de malice sans Raphaël,

Les jours sans lui deviennent ennui, et mes nuits s'ennuient de plus belle.

Pas d'inquiétude, pas de prélude, pas de promesse à l'éternel,

Juste l'amour dans notre lit, juste nos vies en arc-en-ciel, Raphaël...

A l'air d'un sage, et ses paroles sont de velours,

De sa voix grave et de son regard sans détours,

Quand il raconte, quand il invente, je peux l'écouter Nuit et jour... Hmm

Quatre consonnes et trois voyelles c'est le prénom de Raphaël,

Four consonants and three vowels in the name of Raphaël.

I whisper it to myself and each letter makes me marvel.

It's the trema that catches me in the name of Raphaël,

As it mixes with "a" and "e", and intertwines with "L", Raphaël...

He seems an angel, but he's a devil of love,

Cos of the tip of his hips and his velvet stare,

When he looks my way, when he looks my way, my nights are bright.

And they last forever.... Hmm

I love the taste of the honeyed notes, in the name of Raphael.

I murmur his name to my alarm clock, in the embrace of sleep,

And to make the day beautiful, I perfume myself with Raphael...

Skin with heartache, eternal painter, strange archangel from another sky...

No delight, no spark, no passion without Raphael,

The days turn boring without him, but with him bored nights are more beautiful.

No worries, no preludes, no promises to eternity,

Just love in our bed, just a life of rainbow skies, Raphael....

He seems so wise, and his words are velvet,

His voice deep and his unwavering gaze,

When he talks, when he invents, I can listen to him

Night and day... Hmm.

Four consonants and three vowels in the name of Raphael.

Submitter's comments:
"trema" is the French term for "umlaut".

I tried to make this translation a little more coherent than the old one, I know basic French.

"mes nuits sont blanches"
I am not sure but doesn't this mean "my nights are sleepless?"
