lyrics

J’garde les fleurs

Dans la trajectoire de la lumière
Comme une morsure de vipère
Je sens le vide, l’écho solitaire
L’éclair invisible dans ma chair

Dans la trajectoire éphémère
Et mes blessures de guerrière
J’sens la soif, l’urgence de vivre
Dans les griffes de l’irréversible

Des ronces bataillées
Des routes emportées
Des jours envolés
J’garde les fleurs

Des flammes naufragées
Des rêves échoués
Des nuits embrasées
J’garde les braises

Dans la trajectoire bleu ébène
Dans le piège qui se referme
Je sens le vide, le battement désert
En chute libre dans l’atmosphère

Des ronces bataillées
Des routes emportées
Des jours envolés
J’garde les fleurs

Des flammes naufragées
Des rêves échoués
Des nuits embrasées
J’garde les braises
J’garde les fleurs
J’veux les fleurs

Juste de passage, nous sommes
Un nom dans le sable, nous sommes
De l’encre sur une page
Dans le vent

Juste de passage, nous sommes
Le nom d’une épave, nous sommes
Les cendres d’une étoile
Vagabonde


I Keep the Flowers

In the suddenness of lightning, like a bite of a viper,
I feel the void, the solitary echo
The invisible electricity under my skin

In the ephemeral trajectory
Of my warrior wounds,
I feel strong thirst, the urgency to live
Despite the irreversible nature of time

From the tangled brambles
From the washed out roads
From the disappearing days
I keep the flowers

From the burnt out flames
From the broken dreams
From the sleepless nights
I keep the embers

In the blue ebony path
In the trap that is closing,
I feel the void, the desolate beat
In free fall in the atmosphere

From the tangled brambles
From the washed out roads
From the disappearing days
I keep the flowers

From the burnt out flames
From the broken dreams
From the sleepless nights
I keep the embers

We are just passing through, we are a name in the sand
We are ink on a page in the rain

We are just passing through, we are a ship lost at sea
We are the ashes of a vagabond star
