lyrics

Indolore

Tu souffles sur les braises
Dans le gouffre du couchant
Sur le rouge de mes lèvres
Quand l’abîme me surprend

Cette course à rebours
Vers le jour qui s’éteint
Elle finit toujours
Sur le bord d’un ravin

Prends ma main, un instant
Quand l’emporte le néant
Prends ma main, un instant
Quand le courage me ment

J’m’essouffle, tu respires
Dans les ténèbres incolores
De ma nuit, mes vertiges
Dans le vide indolore

Prends ma main, un instant
Quand l’emporte le néant
Prends ma main, un instant
Quand le courage me ment

Dans la chute qui s’élance
Dans la brume transparente
Dans les feux de l’aurore
Dans tes bras je m’endors

Prends ma main, un instant
Quand l’emporte le néant
Prends ma main, un instant
Quand le courage me ment


Painless Abyss

You blow on the embers
Of the setting sun
Who’s flaming descent
Reddens my lips

This futile race to turn back time
Always ends on the edge of the ravine

Take my hands, for an instant
When the inescapable void rises
Take my hands, for an instant
When courage leaves me

When I am breathless, you inhale
Into the depth of my darkness
Of my nights, my vertigo
Into the painless abyss

Take my hands, for an instant
When the inescapable void rises
Take my hands, for an instant
When courage leaves me

In the cascading falls,
In the transparent haze,
In the fires of dawn,
In your arms, I fall asleep

Take my hands, for an instant
When the inescapable void rises
Take my hands, for an instant
When courage leaves me
