Eternity (L'Éternité)

English translation

Eternity

There are no words to express regrets.
Night is a lame excuse, I'm going to bed
since there is no escaping the guilt.
 
It follows you in your bed
It encroaches upon your life.
 
There is no forgiveness,
time ate it away by tricking us
into thinking we can forget.
Oh, hide from me the limited time we have,
allow the moment to turn into eternity.
Oh, lie to me, tel me I didn't dream,
allow the moment to turn into eternity.
 
Since there are no words to own up to you,
I'm fed up with all these secrets.
 
Since there is no way out for a wounded soul,
time doesn't have the power to heal the wound.
 
There is no forgiveness
for those who have fallen.
Evil is freezing you solid
like starch.
 
Oh, hide from me the limited time we have,
allow the moment to turn into eternity.
Oh, lie to me, tel me I didn't dream,
allow the moment to turn into eternity.
 
Oh, hide from me the limited time we have,
allow the moment to turn into eternity.
Oh, lie to me, tel me I didn't dream,
allow the moment to turn into eternity.
 
Do whatever you want with my translations. I'm not rich enough to sue you anyway.

I'm not sure I really got what she meant, since I'm a bit baffled by the apparent logic of some sentences.
