They called him the loner (On l’appelait solitaire)

English translation

They called him the loner

He was a man with the eyes of night,
Lost deep within by too much indifference
Who, between him and his friends
Had built a rampart of silence
 
The solitary man bore his name well
All his roads only lead to prisons
He lived alone with his secrets
In the deadlock of regrets
He was at the edge of madness
The Companion of Melancholy
Among the winds that turn the earth,
He remained lonely
 
He was a man from nowhere
Whose memory had no horizon
 
The solitary man bore his name well
All his roads only lead to prisons
He lived alone with his secrets
In the deadlock of regrets
He was at the edge of madness
The Companion of Melancholy
Among the winds that turn the earth,
He remained lonely
He remained lonely

On l’appelait solitaire

C'était un homme aux yeux de nuit,
Au cœur perdu par trop d'indifférence
Qui entre lui et ses amis
Avait construit un rempart de silence
 
Le solitaire portait bien son nom
Toutes ses rues menaient à des prisons
Il habitait seul avec ses secrets
