“Like the melody of my song”

Vann rätt låt i Eurovision? Kanske, men den var inte min favorit. För första gången på länge höll jag på Frankrike, inte bara för att jag skulle önskat att Frankrike, mitt adoptivland, skulle fått vinna i mitt hemland.

amirJag har nyss varit på gymmet för ett pass Stairmaster. Jag lyssnade på J’ai cherché och vad kan jag säga annat än att den ger mig massor av energi, och att den gör mig glad 🙂

Titta och lyssna på Youtube. Texten har du nedan, på franska och på engelska 😉 Jag gillar speciellt:

I have thrown…
Too many bottles to the sea,
Drank so much bitter liquor,
It made my lips as cold as stone


J’AI CHERCHÉ

J’ai cherché
un sens à mon existence
J’y ai laissé mon innocence
J’ai fini le coeur sans défense
J’ai cherché
L’amour et la reconnaissance
J’ai payé
Le prix du silence
Je me blesse et je recommence

Tu m’as
Comme donné l’envie d’être moi
Donné un sens à mes pourquoi
Tu as tué la peur
Qui dormait là
Qui dormait là
Dans mes bras

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

J’ai cherché
Un sens, un point de repère
Partagé en 2 hémisphères
Comme une erreur de l’univers
J’ai jeté
Tellement de bouteilles à la mer
J’ai bu tant de liqueurs amères
Que j’en ai les lèvres de pierre

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

Au gré de nos blessures
Et de nos désinvoltures
C’est quand on n’y croit plus du tout
Qu’on trouve un paradis perdu
En nous
Oh you you you you

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

Like the melody of my song
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
giving you love with my song
giving you love with my song


I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR

I have looked for a sense to my existence,
It made me leave my innocence behind
I’ve finished with an unprotected heart
I have looked for…
Love and recognition,
I have paid the price of silence,
I am getting hurt but starting all over again

You gave me the will to be myself,
Gave a meaning to my questions,
You have killed the fear that was sleeping here,
that was sleeping here, in my arms.

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

I have looked for, a direction, a landmark,
Split into two hemispheres,
Like a mistake of the universe,
I have thrown…
Too many bottles to the sea,
Drank so much bitter liquor,
It made my lips as cold as stone

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

Along our injuries and our flippancies,
It’s when we completely lose our faith,
That we find a lost paradise inside ourselves,
Oh you…

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
You
Like the melody of my song

Like the melody of my song
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking looking for
giving you love with my song
giving you love with my song
