Comme les oiseaux (English translation)

English translation

Like birds

Tell me if you want
to take a ride together,
dancing on the sea,
stepping across rivers.
 
Sunlight slumbering
between the trees.
Don't wait until tomorrow
for life to slip between our fingers.
 
Like the birds in the air
sing mysteries
we have all we need to feel good1
Wearing our souls on our sleeves.
 
We will climb very high
with our backpacks.
We'll see where light
is hiding on Earth.
 
...
 
On the steps of our forefathers
we're walking in the desert.
It's hard to believe
we're walking across our history.
 
When we get out in the country
with a confused heart
you can already see up there
the horizon getting brighter.
 
Like the birds in the air
sing mysteries
we have all we need to feel good
Wearing our souls on our sleeves.
 
We will climb very high
with our backpacks.
We'll see where light
is hiding on Earth.
 
...
 
(repeat and fade)
 
  • 1. "avoit tout pour plaire" actually means "we're very attractive" but I suspect a wrong use of the expression

Glad if you liked it, sorry if you didn't.
You can reuse it as you please.
Glad if it's for knowledge or understanding, sorry if it's just for money or fame.
