Ne me quitte pas (English translation)

English translationEnglish
A A

Don't leave me

Dont' leave me
You have to forget
Everything can be forgotten
That is flying away already
Forget the time
The misunderstandings
And the time that was lost
Trying to understand how
These hours can be forgotten
Those that are killing sometimes
With whys that hurt like punches
The heart of happiness
 
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
 
I will offer you
Pearls made of rain
Coming from countries
Where it never rains
I will work the earth
Until I die
To cover your body
With gold and light
I will create a kingdom for you
Where love will be the king
Where love will be the law
Where you will be the queen
 
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
 
I will invent for you
Meaningless words
That you will understand
I will speak to you
Of these lovers
That we've seen twice
Their hearts embracing each other
I will tell you
The story of this king
Who died of not being able
To get to know you
 
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
 
We have often seen
Fire flowing again
From an ancient vulcano
That we considered to be too old
It seems like
Burned earth
Produces more wheat
Than a warm month of april
And when the night comes
And the sky is on fire
The black and the red
Won't go together
 
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
 
Don't leave me
I won't cry anymore
I won't speak anymore
I will hide right there
To see you
Dancing ad smiling
And to listen to you
Sing and then laugh
Let me become
The shadow of yor shadow
The shadowof you hand
The shadow of your dog
 
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
