Den of Thieves

How could I betray the promises I made?
Cheat myself and fail, time and again
How could I forsake my dreams for this cage
I tried to walk away and make my escape

So I won’t go on and keep falling
As if tomorrow never dawned over the mountain

How could I forget, the words that I once said?
How can I put it all to rest and let the darkness fade

So I won’t go on, and keep falling
As if tomorrow never dawned over the mountain

When the light hits the stream
And puts my den of thieves to sleep
I will catch and release
All the broken figurines

I watch the sun meet the rain
And the colors clear the haze
I’ll find my path through the maze
And my needles in the hay

So I won’t go on, and keep falling
As if tomorrow never dawned over the mountain
No I won’t go on and keep falling
Now… now…
I’ll stop falling now… Now…


Antre de Brigands

Comment ai-je pu trahir les promesses que j’ai faites
Me leurrer et échouer, encore et encore
Comment ai-je pu abandonner mes rêves pour cette cage
J’ai essayé de partir, de m’évader

Pour ne pas continuer à tomber
Comme si demain ne se lèverait jamais

Comment ai-je pu oublier les mots dits
Comment mettre fin à tout ça et sortir de l’obscurité

Pour ne pas continuer à tomber
Comme si demain ne se lèverait jamais

Quand la lumière réveille le ruisseau
Et endort mon antre de brigands
Je capture et relâche
Les fantômes du passé

Je regarde le soleil danser avec la pluie
Et les couleurs chasser le brouillard
Je trouverai mon chemin dans le labyrinthe
Et mes aiguilles dans la botte de foin

Pour ne pas continuer à tomber
Comme si demain ne se lèverait jamais
