lyrics

Between the Lilac and the Blades

I forgive and forget, reach for the stars in the sky
I forge a new beginning, and walk outside the line
I’m leaving the pattern, I’m free to start the climb
I choose a road less travelled, leave everything behind

And find my way
Between the lilac and the blades

Who am I? I wonder. What is the purpose of all of this
If there’s no exit in the circle, I’ll draw myself a door

To feel the flames of your love
To feel our hearts beat until we start
Falling with the blossom of the cherry tree

To feel the flood rise again
To feel the river grow, until we start
Falling with the blossom of the cherry tree

I’ll find my way
Between the lilac and the blades


Entre Lilas et Lames

J’efface et j’oublie, j’essaie d’atteindre les étoiles
Je forge un nouveau départ, et marche de l’autre côté de la ligne
Je prends mon envol, je suis libre de commencer l’ascension
Je choisis une autre route, je laisse tout derrière moi

Et je trouve mon chemin
Entre les lilas et les lames

Qui suis-je ? Je me demande la raison à tout cela
S’il n’y a pas d’issue à ce cercle, je me dessinerai une porte

Pour sentir les flammes de ton amour
Pour sentir nos cœurs battre jusqu’à ce que nous commencions
à tomber avec les fleurs du cerisier
Pour sentir l’eau monter
Pour sentir la rivière grandir jusqu’à ce que nous commencions
À tomber avec les fleurs du cerisier

Je trouverai mon chemin
Entre les lilas et les lames
