My friend the rose (mon amie la rose)

English translation

My friend the rose

Versions: #1#2
Chorus 1:
We are so few things
And my friend the rose told me so this morning
 
Verse 1:
I was born at dawn
Baptised in dew
I blossomed
Happy and in love
In the rays of the sun
 
I closed myself at night
I awoke old
Yet I was beautiful
the most beautiful
Of all the flowers in your garden
 
Chorus 1
 
Verse 2
We are so few things
And my friend the rose told me so this morning
See, the God who made me
Made my head bowed down
And I feel I'm falling
And I feel I'm falling
My heart is almost bare
I have the foot in the grave
Already I am not
You admired me only yesterday
And I shall be dust
Forever, tomorrow
 
We are so few things
And my friend the rose
Died this morning
The moon this night
Kept vigil over my friend
 
And I saw in a dream
Her soul, dancing
Dazzling and naked,
Above the heavens,
Smiling at me.
Believe who can believe
I need Hope
Or else I am nothing
 
repeat chorus & verse

hello
not too bad
for "on n'est bien peu de choses" we could say as well "we are so meaningless".
bye.

Beautiful, I've loved this song for many years and never actually understood the words as I don't speak French Smile the feeling and emotion that is conveyed by Natascha's singing matches your translation, and is absolutely beautiful, thank you so much X Ianessa Safiya
