English translation

I Forgot Everything

Not far from here, I live, maybe it's somewhere else
I don't recognise my life any more, sometimes I frighten myself
I live in a world which does not exist
Without you, I am no longer quite me
 
Not far from here, I lost what I was
My name means nothing to me, nor the photo on my papers
They might as well call me such and such
Without you, it doesn't matter who names me
 
How does one say "Hello"? I no longer know
The perfume of the good days, I smell it no more
How does one make love? If only I kmew
I forgot everything, when you forgot me
The sweet velvet words, I cry them no more
And my sense of humour, I lost it
How does one make love? If only I knew
I forgot everything, when you forgot me
 
Not far from here, I decided to come back
To put a little order to my thoughts, refresh them
I cut my hair, I levelled the walls
What I did, I'm not so sure
 
How does one say "Hello"? I no longer know
The perfume of the good days, I smell it no more
How does one make love? If only I knew
I forgot everything, when you forgot me
The sweet velvet words, I cry them no more
And my sense of humour, I lost it
How does one make love? If only I knew

I think that's right, but if I can improve this translation or I've missed the mark, let me know and I'll make the changes accordingly.
Cheers, Craig :-)
