You

You
Are you here tonight ? A cab, I'm getting off
The door creaks a bit, I step forward in the dark
Three piano notes, I'm smiling at the mirror
You,
 
You are here, it's time, like the very first time
When I was immortal, when evereything made me laugh
And when, alone beneath the moon I screamed against the wolves
You,
Even without knowing you I was walking toward you
 
You took me single-handedly
One day terrible child, one day lost child
I won the right to be myself step by step
The right to be free, for a look from you
 
When the wind that makes oaks fall down came
I saw time bleeding, the jealous birds laughing
When they picked on you to crush me
 
You,
You were already here when I broke my voice*
When I drank my tears at the bottom of the last glasses
Those nights when I dried my anger in your eyes
You,
 
You think I don't know about your smile over there
 
You took me single-handedly
One day terrible child, one day lost child
I won the right to be myself step by step
The right to be here when I walk toward you
 
The round dance goes on
The round dance goes on and you stayed
Always at the end of the day, behind the red curtain
The adventure goes on and we won
The right to make the dream dance in a velvet dress
 
And I sing for you
You know everything about me, everything we're not telling each other
Your lips barely move, we lack light
But black unites us and from here I see you
 
Me,
I find my laugh back, I find my life back
In your waving hands when I repeat these words
Tonight it's eight o'clock, we have a date
And the curtain rises... today I'm fifteen
When I give myself to you...
 
When I give myself to you...
When I give myself to you.
