Olivia Ruiz - Mon petit à petit (English translation)

English translation

My little by little

He's chasing the clouds
more than the girls his age.
He wants to cuddle in them,
there his dreams are frozen.
He's swimming in spheres
unknown to us.
A shy mystery,
but a fighting soul.
 
My little by little
is leaving the ivory tower.
I spend all my nights
hidden in his closet.
 
I don't allow myself to tell you
I would like you to be by my side.
I feel you're breathing freely away from me
and this breathing is more important than I am.
Pride brushes me,
the missing sometimes scalds me.
My eyes then get wonded
by so many nights without you.
 
My little by little
is leaving the ivory tower.
I spend all my nights
hidden in your closet.
 
I like it when your smile shows
at the corner of your eyes,
at the edges of your mouth,
I like it when you hold it back,
and your modesty moves me.
I like to see you change
my little by little,
to see you change
and leave the nest without fear.
 
My little by little
is leaving the ivory tower.
I spend all my nights
hidden in his closet.
 
Now I'll dance in the rain
to celebrate your departure.
I would call on the stars
to bring you away from the blizzard.
 
My little by little
is leaving the ivory tower.
I spend all my nights
hidden in his closet.
 
Do whatever you want with my translations. I'm not rich enough to sue you anyway.
