Vincent Delerm - La vie devant soi (English translation)

English translation

The life ahead of us

Take a train to the coast
Upon the ferry boat
Take a seat
 
Run behind the coach
And in the black night
Think about that
 
The life ahead of us
Ahead of us
 
Speak with a face
At the fifth floor
Listen to her
 
Feel like you’re alive
Like the others before
Before you
 
The life ahead of us
Ahead of you

Author's comments:

The title may well be drawn from the novel "La vie devant soi" by Romain Gary, usually translated as "The life before us". I have avoided "before" to avoid confusion as the meaning here is "in front", and not the opposite which "before" can also mean.
