Margaux Avril - Paris (English translation)

English translation

Paris

Paris is such a beautiful lady1,
and your words are so sweet,
and everything is decided while she does not give a damn about us.
It's cold, you embrace me
Your eyes stroke me
The days go by
as we have no reasons to hurry anymore.
My heart beats for each step
that drives us apart.
Streets are a long walk and your departure
drives us away from everything.
 
Oh Oh Oh Oh this playful air
that unites us
Oh Oh Oh Oh for without you I don't love Paris anymore
Oh Oh Oh Oh this love story that could happen only here
for without you I don't love Paris anymore
 
The passers-by, the glances in
this City of Light
bring more new hopes
than we know what to do with
and on these avenues we build
our memories.
Gone the noise, gone the crowd,
just us, our laughters.
My heart beats for each step that drives us apart
Streets are a long walk and your departure
drives us away from everything
 
Oh Oh Oh Oh this playful air
that unites us
Oh Oh Oh Oh for without you I don't love Paris anymore
Oh Oh Oh Oh this love story that could only happen there
for without you I don't love Paris anymore
 
This playful air that unites us.
Paris gets bored without you.
For without you I don't love Paris anymore
Paris gets bored without you.
This love story that could happen only here
Paris gets bored without you.
For without you I don't love Paris anymore
 
Oh Oh Oh Oh this playful air
that unites us
Oh Oh Oh Oh for without you I don't love Paris anymore
Oh Oh Oh Oh this love story that could only happen there

I rather like the way she writes. Not a new Gainsbourg, but still quite pleasant.
