Jacques Brel - Ne me quitte pas (English translation)

English translation

Don't leave me

Don't leave me
It must be forgotten
Everything can be forgotten
Who already escaped
Forgetting the times
Of misunderstandings
And the lost time
To know how
To forget those hours
That were killing sometimes
By force of reason
The heart of well-being ( happiness)
Don't leave me
 
I will offer you
Pearls of rain
Coming from countries
Where it does not rain
I will dig the ground
Till after my death
To cover your body
With gold and light
I will make a field
Where love will be king
Where love will be law
Where you will be queen
Don't leave me
 
Don't leave me
I will invent for you
Words with no sense
That you will understand
I will tell you
About those lovers
Who saw two times
Their hearts hugging
I will tell you
The history of that king
Dead for not having
Been able to meet you
Don't leave me
 
We often saw
The fire rebounding
From the old volcano
That we thought it was too old
It seems it ( the volcano) is
From burned lands
Giving more grains
Than a better April
And when the evening comes
For a sky blazes
The red and the black
Don't get married
Don't leave me
 
Don't leave me
I don't want to cry anymore
I don't want to talk anymore
I will hide myself there
To watch you
Dancing and smiling
And listening to you
Singing and then laughing
Let me become
The shadow of your shadow
The shadow of your hand
The shadow of your dog
Don't leave me
