The Grail

[Tune]
Like Indy1 I've looked for the Grail, the eternal youth
Botox2 in the veins
I quit smoking and drinking each Sunday, each week
I relapsed yesterday
 
Astounded by the beauty of the show
I'm walking on embers without wanting it
Without anesthesia, stitching up the eyebrow
A strike of coma, blood on the floor
 
[Tune]
 
Life is playful as it knows how to count cards
But in my sleeve a fifth ace is hidden
All mixes, here men and women
Alcohol and bodies, ice in the flames
 
[Tune]
 
When we see Earth from space, we forget our problems
I have both feet on the ground
I see the angels since Satan gets on my nerves
I believe in it down to my bones.
 
Life is playful as it knows how to count cards
But in my sleeve a fifth ace is hidden
No other stake than biasing a bit
The game rules until the finale
 
[Tune]
 
When we see Earth from space, we forget our problems
I have both feet on the ground
I see the angels since Satan gets on my nerves
I believe in it down to my bones
 
I believe in it down to my bones
I believe in it down to my bones
I believe in it down to my bones
 
  • 1. I guess Indy is a diminutive of the name of Indiana Jones.
  • 2. Botox is the commercial name of the Botulinum toxin. It's famous for its use to reduce the wrinkles but it has also other medical properties.

Really good! Are you French ? Very well translated. I wonder, if I should tackle it. But reading your translation, I realize you did the job well. To improve I could try to respect the number of feet and rhyme whenever possible. But don't we say that the best is the enemy of the good? (The good excuse for anyone who doesn't want to shake one lol)
Thanks in all case.
