Francis Cabrel - Partis pour rester (English translation)

English translation

Here to stay

Versions: #1#2
There’s someone else in the looking glass
Between the potions and the creams
All the little pots which pile up
You see, time has passed even so
 
We believed we were treading water
Ah that, we took some pain over it
We spend ourselves, we struggle
And even with a queen’s steps
The big hand moves
 
We’re going to target eternity
We are so comfortable here
We’re going to do everything as if
We were here to stay
 
Between the bumps in the road
The set-backs, the dead-ends
The long nights, the short days
And all that scratches the surface
 
We fall each one in turn
Between the raptor’s claws
The only remedy is love
Besides, that’s why we run
From one end of space to other
 
We’re going to target eternity
We are so comfortable here
We’re going to do everything as if
We were here to stay
 
Stay, stay, stay
We’re not even hurried
Stay, stay, stay
In a corner of my mind
A lifetime embracing you
A thousand times started over
And that’s why we’re going to stay
Stay, stay
 
I would have like to bring it to you
On a beautiful lace cushion
The nook where the keys are hidden
To the eternal mechanism
 
But the clock is out of reach
And it isn’t there that the essence lies
It can continue to turn
And it can take everything away
I find you more beautiful every day
 
We’re going to target eternity
We are so comfortable here
We’re going to do everything as if
We were here to stay
Stay, stay, stay
We are far from worn-out
Stay, stay, stay
In a corner of my mind
A life embracing you
A thousand time started over
 
We’re going to stay, stay, stay
We’re not even hurried
Stay, stay, stay
For those that we’ve hurt
That we should have embraced
Might as well start all over again
 
We’re going to target eternity
We are so comfortable here
We’re going to do everything as if
We were here to stay
