Un regard d'amour

Il neige aux Antilles
Il pleut au désert
Et des soleils brillent
Même sur l’enfer
 
Un volcan fertile
Un océan pur
Un tigre docile
Des tyrans moins durs
 
Сes images laissent et leurs vraies vies
Qui verra le jour
Que nous poserons sur aujourd’hui
Un regard d’amour
 
La haine et le sang et le mépris
Passeront leur tour
Quand nous aurons tous enfin appris
Ce regard d’amour
 
Le calme s’installe
La peur s’évanouit
Le serpent détale
La guerre est finie
 
Loin des feux barbares
L’enfant n’a plus froid
Le vent de l’histoire
Souffle un air de joie
 
Сes images laissent et leurs vraies vies
Qui verra le jour
Que nous poserons sur aujourd’hui
Un regard d’amour
 
La haine le sang et le mépris
Passeront leur tour
Quand nous aurons tous enfin appris
Ce regard d’amour
 
C'est un regard tendre
Et sans préjugés
Qui cherche à comprendre
Au lieu de juger
 
Ce n’est pas de lois pas des idées
Ni des grands discours
C'est un regard neuf qu’il faut trouver
Un regard d’amour
 
On ne changera jamais la vie
Le monde et son cours
Sont posés sur eux à l'infini
Un regard d’amour

A gaze of love

It is snowing in the Antilles islands,
It is raining in the desert
And suns are shining
Even above the hell.
 
A fertile volcano,
A pure ocean,
A docile tiger,
Less hard tyrants,
 
They let these images and their real life.
Who will see the day
And we'll set on today,
A gaze of love.
 
Hate, blood and contempt,
Will pass their turn
When finally all of us will have learn
This gaze of love.
 
Calm is setting in,
Fear is fading,
A snake is scurrying
War is over.
 
Far from the barbaric fires,
The child is no longer cold.
The wind of histotry
Breathe an air of joy.
 
They let these images and their real life.
Who will see the day
And we'll set on today,
A gaze of love.
 
Hate, blood and contempt,
Will pass their turn
When finally all of us will have learn
This gaze of love.
 
It is a tender look
Without prejudice
Which seeks to understand
Instead of judging.
 
It isn't laws, nor ideas,
nor long speeches
But a new look we have to find,
A look of love.
 
We'll never change life,
The world and its course
Without putting on them
An infinite look of love.
 
Thanks!
