Someone Told Me (Quelqu’un m’a dit)

English translation

Someone Told Me

Someone Told Me
 
I am told that our lives are not worth much,
They pass in an instant, like wilting roses
I am told that time slips past like a bastard cloaking himself in our sorrows;
But someone told me ...
 
That you still love me,
Someone told me that he is someone who loves me still.
Could that be possible?
 
They tell me that destiny mocks us
It gives us nothing and promises everything
It seems that happiness is within reach
So we reach out …and find madness
But someone told me ...
 
That you still love me
Someone told me that he is someone who loves me still.
Could that be possible?
 
But who is it who told me that you love me?
I do remember it was late at night
I still hear the voice, but I do not see the face
"He loves you, it is secret, do not tell him what I’ve said
You see, someone told me ...
 
That you still loved me, they truly said ...
That you still love me, is that possible?
 
I am told that our lives are not worth much,
They pass in an instant, like wilting roses
I am told that time slips past like a bastard cloaking himself in our sorrows;
But someone told me ...
 
That you still love me,
Someone told me that he is someone who loves me still.
Could that be possible?

Quelqu’un m’a dit

On me dit que nos vies ne valent pas grand-chose
Elles passent en un instant comme fanent les roses
On me dit que le temps qui glisse est un salaud
Que de nos chagrins il s'en fait des manteaux
Pourtant quelqu'un m'a dit...
 
(refrain)
Que tu m'aimais encore

3 mistranslations in this highly competitive environment are way too much.
I never thought our ex-president's wife deserved such honor anyway Smile.
