Faudel - Je cherche (English translation)

English translation

I'm Searching

I remember and it's not difficult
The laundry that dried on a line under the sun
And my mother's face in the country air
 
Knees skinned
In our forbidden children's games
Our shoes without spikes
Marked out the terrain
And our hearts damaged by honor
Lost 2 to 1
 
Paris Trocadero
Algiers the White and your eyes
In mine
A glance, a noise, a smell
I'm feeling good
A little from here, a little from there
It's coming back to me
 
And I'm searching
I'm searching*
I'm searching for my path
My fate*, my destiny
 
On the benches at school
I learned the present
To conjugate the passing time**
And yet,
With my head elsewhere I dreamed of something different
 
In the frantic race
To the court of feeling
For an I love you in the air
That very often hurts
Our emotions came to life slowly
Slowly
 
I search for hours
And hours
The why of how
In the tunes and haunting tunes
And the parading passions
 
The torments
The torments
 
And I'm searching...
