BK Lick Most Moving Love Song - folk or non-folk (135* d) Lyr Add: NE ME QUITTE PAS 14 Dec 11


Here's a pretty fair translation:

Ne me quitte pas
Il faut oublier
Tout peut s'oublier
Qui s'enfuit déja
Oublier le temps
Des malentendus
Et le temps perdu
A savoir comment
Oublier ces heures
Qui tuaient parfois
A coups de pourquoi
Le coeur de bonheur
Ne me quitte pas (4X)

Moi je t'offrirai
Des perles de pluie
Venues de pays
Ou il ne pleut pas
Je creuserai la terre
Jusqu'apres ma mort
Pour couvrir ton corps
D'or et de lumiere
Je ferai un domaine
Ou l'amour sera roi
Ou l'amour sera loi
Ou tu seras reine
Ne me quitte pas (4X)

Ne me quitte pas
Je t'inventerai
Des mots insensés
Que tu comprendras
Je te parlerai
De ces amants-la
Qui ont vu deux fois
Leurs coeurs s'embraser
Je te raconterai
L'histoire de ce roi
Mort de n'avoir pas
Pu te rencontrer
Ne me quitte pas (4X)

On a vu souvent
Rejaillir le feu
D'un ancien volcan
Qu'on croyait trop vieux
Il est paraît-il
Des terres brulées
Donnant plus de blé
Qu'un meilleur avril
Et quand vient le soir
Pour qu'un ciel flamboie
Le rouge et le noir
Ne s'épousent-ils pas
Ne me quitte pas (4X)

Ne me quitte pas
Je ne vais plus pleurer
Je ne vais plus parler
Je me cacherai la
A te regarder
Danser et sourire
Et a t'écouter
Chanter et puis rire
Laisse-moi devenir
L'ombre de ton ombre
L'ombre de ta main
L'ombre de ton chien
Ne me quitte pas (4X)

Don't leave me
Let's forget
For all can be forgotten
Which is gone by already
Forget the time
Of misunderstandings
And the time lost
Finding out how
To forget those hours
Which sometimes killed
By blows of why
The heart of happiness
Don't leave me (4X)

I will give you
Pearls of rain
Come from countries
Where it never rains
I will dig up the earth
Even in death
To cover your body
With gold and with light
I will make a kingdom
Where love shall be king
Where love shall be law
Where you shall be queen
Don't leave me (4X)

Don't leave me
I shall invent for you
Senseless words
Which you will understand
I shall tell you
About those lovers
Who saw twice
Their hearts go up in flames
I shall tell you
The story of this king
Dead for not having
Succeeded in finding you
Don't leave me (4X)

One has often seen
Burst anew the fire
Of an old volcano
Believed to be spent
There are, it is said,
Scorched lands
Yielding more wheat
Than the best of April
And when evening comes
To make the sky flare up
The red and the black,
Do they not wed?
Don't leave me (4X)

Don't leave me.
I won't cry any more
I won't talk any more
I'll hide over there
Watching you
Dance and smile
And listening to you
Sing and laugh
Let me become
The shadow of your shade
The shadow of your hand
The shadow of your dog
Don't leave me. (4X)
