Bigflo et Oli - Autre Part (English translation)

English translation

Somewhere else

I'd like to stop being reminded about future
it's so scary, it's so cold in my head at night
I'm bored, I'd like to leave my body, to finally be free
My smiles are slaves of my manners
I opened the cage of my dark raven on the moonlight
It whispered dreams in my ear and lent me its feather
I'd like to leave this place if nobody understands me
Cause I'm less scared about being empty than being fake
I don't want your boring and artificial lives
Ending up with my hands eroded by detergent
I don't want that tiny house and its well-mowed lawn
I don't wanna be myself, and someone else either
People of my age are ridiculous, but it's not their fault
You don't grow up, you just replace the playground by another kind of playing
So go ahead, do your fake and stupid shows
I'll take care of turning off the scene's lights and closing the curtains
I got needles in my heart, if it'd stop beating it'd be less painful
Putting my head in the bathtub, I hear a voice that whispers: "come with me"
Days have a bitter taste, and so is my face expressing
Minutes are acid, they bore me, they hurt me
As the coward that I am, just leave me in peace for a million years
I'd like to take a break that never ends
We're all under sentence of death
Everyone has the same end, I'll just take a shortcut
And I'm suffering from disappointing the ones I love, I feel more fear than sadness
I'm young but deep inside I'm old, I'm hollow, there's only glass in my veins
Let her (death) bring me to the other side, and let me there
I'm writing a message, just in case, just to be polite
Future is a wall that needs to be broken with bare hands
Gotta climb it up, stone by stone
Future is a wall that needs to be broken with bare hands, and I'm not even sure that I wanna know what's going on on the other side
 
When time fades away, when ice appears
When tears empty your body out
You need to know, if you're willing to turn over a new leaf
That outside, someone is still loving you
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
 
I'd like to make your icy heart melt, to break your carapace
But I just stand here, I can't do that battle in your place
We could celebrate our victory, we could dance on your shield
I know that you're worried about the others, but for once please, forget them
And I know about your doubts, we went on the road together
If you can hear me right now, I'd like you to listen to me one day
I'd like to calm you down, to see you smile in front of the mirror
Do it, do it for those who are dreaming to be in your place
And so do I, I do hell with people, I do feel better when I close my eyes
I won't say I understand you but tonight I'm trying my best to do so
Sensitive, we're so small and everything goes blurred in the crowd
Look outside, I'm sure there are so many other people just like us
I'd like you to throw all of your things away, to come with me, having a ride in the city, laughing on the other side of the planet, doing mistakes, simply discovering life
React, you can punch me, slap me if you feel like doing so
Come in my car we'll have fun, we'll go pick up some girls all night long
Answer me, cold is paralyzing me
If you book a flight to somewhere else, I'll slip into your baggage
Black looking, I know you're going around and around
But I can assure you, if you jump, I'll be down there, waiting for you
We'll trade that stupid world for something else
What has never been done here, we'll simply do it ourselves
I'm staying strong but reading your letter has been so hard
Especially that moment when you said you wanted to disappear
So just stop, stop, just breathe, take off that thorn
Enjoy your heart's beat that's making your chest tremble
Open the window, look at winter and spring hugging each other
Wrap yourself with the laughing noises that evaporate from the terraces
Enjoy life down here and break that great wall
Our childish dreams deserve a better place to grow
We'll go for a great trip and I'll love you as much as you've hated them
But if you're leaving, I have no living reason left
 
When time fades away, when ice appears
When tears empty your body out
You need to know, if you're willing to turn over a new leaf
That outside, someone is still loving you
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
 
When time fades away, when ice appears
When tears empty your body out
You need to know, if you're willing to turn over a new leaf
That outside, someone is still loving you
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
I know you wish you'd be somewhere else (somewhere else)
