Papillon

Quelqu’un m’entendra-t-il
Si je ne dis plus un mot ?
Quelqu’un me verra-t-il
Si je disparaissais ?
 
Je sais.. je sais
J’aurais pu être un papillon
J'aurais vécu
Une unique journée
 
Je vole... volerais
M’habillerais de lumière
Je me cache... cacherais
De la pluie et du vent
Je regarderais la terre
Apprécierais sa beauté
Je vole... volerais
Serais un papillon
 
Quelqu’un attendra-t-il
Pour que ma chrysalide
Se libère de ses fils
Et se lance dans le vide ?
 
Je sais je sais
J’aurais pu être un papillon.
J'aurais vécu
Une unique journée..
 
Je vole... volerais
M’habillerais de lumière
Je me cache... cacherais
De la pluie et du vent
Je regarderais la terre
Apprécierais sa beauté
Je vole... volerais
Serais un papillon
 
Je vole... volerais
 
Je me cache... cacherais
 
Je regarderais la terre
Apprécierais sa beauté
Je vole... volerais
Serais un papillon

Butterfly

Will anyone hear me
If I no longer say a word?
Will anyone see me
If I were to disappear?
 
I know... I know
I could have been a butterfly
I would have lived
A special day
 
I fly... would fly
I'd dress myself in the light
I hide... would hide
From the rain and the wind
I'd look at the land
Would appreciate its beauty
I fly... would fly
Would be a butterfly
 
Will anyone wait
For my pupa
To free itself from its yarn
And launch into nothingness
 
I know I know
I could have been a butterfly
I would have lived
A special day...
 
I fly... would fly
I'd dress myself in the light
I hide... would hide
From the rain and the wind
I'd look at the land
Would appreciate its beauty
I fly... would fly
Would be a butterfly
 
I fly... would fly
 
I hide... would hide
 
I'd look at the land
Would appreciate its beauty
I fly... would fly
Would be a butterfly
