I'm the Same (Je Suis Le Même)

English translation

I'm the Same

Versions: #1#2
I'm just the same
as you used to know
the very same person
that used to move you
 
I'm the same man
who wanted you,
who in spite of himself
disappointed you
 
I'm just the same
as you used to love.
 
Nothing better, but nothing worse,
My heart is the same, no matter what you say [about it]
full of gauche tenderness -
I still feel the same about you
 
I'm just the same
as you used to know
who today admits to
feeling lost
 
I'm the same man
who wanted you
serving his sentence as
like a poor lost soul [lit: poor lost lad]
 
I'm the same man,
Who loved you
who swears to you he hasn't changed
 
I am the same man
Who loved you
 
I am just the same
as you used to know
- I was the one
you believed in
 
I am the same man
That wanted you
You are for him
The only refuge [lit:safety]
 
I'm just the same
as you used to love.
 
Nothing better, but nothing worse,
My heart is the same, no matter what you say
full of tenderness and haste
I still feel the same about you
 
I'm the same man
you used to know
who today admits to
feeling lost
 
I'm the same man
who wanted you
serving his sentence as
like a poor lost soul [lit: poor lost lad]
 
I'm the same man,
That loved you
who swears to you he hasn't changed
 
'Cause I'm just the same
as you used to know -
who today admits to
feeling lost
The same man
who wanted you
now lays his soul at your feet
 
I'm the same man,
That loved you
who swears to you he hasn't changed
 
I'm just the same
I'm just the same
I'm the same man you used to love...

Author's comments:

note: 'Je suis le même' - I am the same. In English this means, 'I am the same person/man' or
'I am just the same' (i.e the same as I used to be). I've used both.
'maladresses' - means 'clumsiness', 'maladroit' - I have used 'gauche' which has been adopted in English.
