lyrics

J’écoute la pluie

Quand tout est fini, qu’il y a plus rien à dire
Que chacun s’en va, que ne reste que l’écho des rires
Quand il faut partir pour regagner l’autre rive

J’écoute la pluie
J’écoute la pluie

Quand il est enfin l’heure de rejoindre le silence
Que je compte les oiseaux par la fenêtre de ma chambre
Qu’ils vont s’envoler, que plus rien n’a d’importance

J’écoute la pluie
J’écoute la pluie

Le festin terminé, on ramasse les dernières cendres
Il faut commencer à remonter l’autre pente
Il est encore temps de finir les vendanges

J’écoute la pluie
J’écoute la pluie

Quand arrive la fin, que se referme enfin le livre
Qu’au bout du chemin, il n’y a plus de vide
Que j’éteins le feu qu’il est temps de m’endormir

J’écoute la pluie
J’écoute la pluie




I listen to the rain

When everything is done, when there's nothing left to say
When everyone leaves, when only the echoes of laughter remain
When it's time to go back to the other shore

I listen to the rain
I listen to the rain

When it's time to get back to silence
I count the birds through my bedroom window
As they will fly off, and nothing matters anymore

I listen to the rain
I listen to the rain

When the feast is over, we pick up the last ashes
We must begin to go back up the other slope
There is still time for the grape harvest

I listen to the rain
I listen to the rain

When we come to the end, when the book closes at last
Upon reaching the horizon there is no drop.
Then I put out the fire, it's time to fall asleep

I listen to the rain
I listen to the rain
