lyrics

Fleuve au galop

Je suis les méandres
Le dédale sur ta peau
Le souffle qui s’effondre
Dans les courbes de ton dos

On s’emmêle, on retrace
Les esquisses de demain
On se croise, s’entrelace
Dans le lierre assassin

Comme une rivière
Comme un fleuve au galop
Comme une rose en hiver
Comme le chant des oiseaux

Je dessine les contours
De ton corps monochrome
L’azur qui bascule
Dans le gouffre du cyclone

On bataille, on démêle
Les racines du chemin
On se perd, on altère
Les nervures du destin

Comme une rivière
Comme un fleuve au galop
Comme une rose en hiver
Comme le chant des oiseaux

Comme la lumière
Dans un ciel orageux
Comme un fauve qu’on libère
Comme un cri dans le bleu


Galloping River

I follow the meandering lines, the labyrinth on your skin
The breath that collapses into the curves of your back

We get enmeshed, we retrace the sketches of tomorrow
We pass each other, intertwine
Ensnared in the fatal ivy

Like a river, like a galloping river
Like a rose in Winter
Like the song of birds

I draw the outlines of your monochrome body
The skies that tumble into the wake of the cyclone

We battle, we untangle the roots of the path
We lose each other, we alter the veins of destiny

Like a river, like a galloping river
Like a rose in Winter
Like the song of birds

Like the light in a stormy sky
Like a wild animal set free
Like a scream into the blue
