Two eyes to cry (Deux yeux pour pleurer)

English translation

Two eyes to cry

I won't confide my sorrow,
I have my two eyes to cry.
Still a friend calls me,
he says I can talk [to him]
 
I've lost my innocence,
the desire of sharing everything.
Now that there is suffering,
that's what I want to keep [to myself]
 
I won't confide my sorrow,
I have my two eyes to cry.
All week long,
rivers have owerflowed.(1)
 
I've got my reasons, my desires ;
that's my joy to look
my future right in the eyes.
Who will be able to comfort me?
 
I won't confide my sorrow,
I have my two eyes to cry,
the rivulets of my eyeliner
and my wet face.
 
Here I sand facing myself,
my angst and my regrets.
Here I am alone and certain
to have him(2) by my side.

--------------------------------------
(1) there is a typo in the posted lyrics. I translated "les rivières ont débordé", but it could be "les rivières sont débordées", as a pun on the alternative meaning of "débordé" : "rivers are overwhelmed"
(2) no idea what "l'" stands for. Could be a he, a her or even a it Smile.
