The One Who Taught Me Everything

I wonder what she thinks about
When she locks herself into her silences
If she sees her eyes in my eyes
If her past is happier
Does she remember the fragile days
All those immobile journeys
How many dreams, how many doubts
And how many traps on her path
 
And even though I get lost at night
Today the roles are reversed
It is the game of life
I watch over the one who taught me everything
And even though I get lost over there
Under a sun which is way too big for me
It is the game of my life
I watch over the one who taught me everything
 
I watch her walking from behind her back
With the pink of summer on her skin
I know that she follows in the light
The path that was traced by my father
She thinks I'm far away, but I'm so close
The past is haunting me, the regrets
A plane, an hotel, a farewell on a dock
Often, I think about her to find myself again
 
And even though I get lost at night
Today the roles are reversed
It is the game of life
I watch over the one who taught me everything
And even though I get lost over there
Under a sun which is way too big for me
It is the game of my life
I watch over the one who taught me everything
 
Launched towards the ocean into the reflection of the world
Carried away by the wind, it is my childhood which is falling
 
And even though I get lost at night
Today the roles are reversed
It is the game of life
I watch over the one who taught me everything
And even though I get lost over there
Under a sun which is way too big for me
It is the game of my life
I watch over the one who taught me everything
It is the game of my life
It is the game of my life
I watch over the one who taught me everything
