Strange Foreigners (Etranges etrangers)

traduction en anglais

Strange Foreigners

Duet:
Tell me who are you
You whom I already desire
You are not unknown to me
Tell me who you are
You whom I already desire
But that I do not recognise
Who are you
Who are you
Who are you
Who are you
 
Dracula:
Say what it is you seek
In this place of perdition
Where vice stifles virtue
What impressions, what emotions
Made you take this alley
In this abandoned wallow
With disorder and misery,
Where do you come from, strange beauty
 
Lucy:
Beautiful strange foreigner
It is yourself you seek
What hope, what pity,
Told me I would find you
 
Dracula:
Perhaps a memory
A black swan** which reminds me of
A soul I saw suffering,
Nevertheless, I desire her alone.
 
Duet:
Tell me who you are
You whom I already desire
You are not unknown to me
Tell me who you are
You whom I desire already
But that I do not recognise
Who are you
Who are you
Who are you
Who are you
 
Lucy:
I am a memory
Which disappears in time
 
Dracula:
And I am the word to write
One who can only be written in blood
Your tears are mine
I have drunk them for so long
That now they belong to me
And my mouth awaits them
 
Duet:
Tell me who you are
You whom I desire already
You are not unknown to me
Tell me who you are
You whom I desire already
But that I do not recognise
Who are you
Who are you
Who are you
Who are you
 
Lucy:
Stranger, who are you.
 
Dracula:
I am that which will suffer
In the void, in the unknown
 
Lucy:
And I am that which will follow
 
Duet:
Tell me who you are
You whom I already desire
You are not unknown to me
Tell me who you are
You whom I desire already
But that I do not recognise
 
Lucy:
You who will kill me.

*lit: 'You whom I like already': can mean am suited to.
** Black swan is a metaphor so something that can't possibly exist.
