Marseilles

It's like when, one day
You stumble across an old photo
The paper, a little yellowed,
But the colours come back,
And with eyes shut
You travel back
Oh! I hope I will always be
At home in Marseilles
 
And the Vieux-Port, which seemed to throw
Its two arms out towards the sea
Does he know yet that, even then,
I was singing to please him?
I didn't love him every day
But I suffered when I was far from him
Oh! I hope I will always be
At home in Marseilles
 
It's true
Often I forget the distance
That made me leave the streets of my childhood
I went far to seize my chance
But not far enough to stop thinking about it
Oh! Marseilles
 
It's like when you stay
For too long
Staring at the sun
You open your eyes gently
And the colours come back
A little more beautiful
Like these years of misery and joy
Spent over there
Oh! I hope I will always be
At home in Marseilles
 
Chorus (x2)
