“La chance”

29 November 2009

By Da Silva (Décembre en été) — translation below

On aurait dû prendre le temps
De regarder tout autour
On aurait dû, on aurait dû s’attendre
À ce que tout finisse par s’effondrer

Puisque tout est question d’équilibre
Et que le monde ne fait que basculer,
De main en main, poing contre poing,
Sauras-tu encore sur quel pied danser?

Je veux tenter, tenter ma chance,
Croire que l’on peut encore s’échapper.
Contre ta peau, contre ta peau m’étendre,
Et me dire que tout va s’arrêter.

On devrait prendre du bon temps
Se regarder et puis se marrer
On aurait dû, on aurait dû s’attendre
Et que personne ne soit oublié

Je veux tenter, tenter ma chance,
Croire que l’on peut encore s’échapper.
Contre ta peau, contre ta peau m’étendre,
Et sentir l’humanité.

Je veux tenter, tenter ma chance,
Croire que l’on peut encore s’échapper.
Contre ta peau, contre ta peau m’étendre,
Et me dire que tout va s’arrêter.

Rough translation:

We should have taken time
to look around
We should have, we should have waited
For everything to finish by crumbling.

Since everything is a question of balance,
And the world only knocks things off balance,
From hand in hand, to fist against fist,
Will you still know which foot to dance on?

I want to try, to try my luck,
To believe that we can still escape,
Against your skin, against your skin stretch out,
And tell myself that everything is going to end.

We should take our good time
To look at ourselves and then have a laugh.
We should have, we should have waited
So that no one was forgotten.

I want to try, to try my luck,
To believe that we can still escape,
Against your skin, against your skin stretch out,
And feel the humanity.

I want to try, to try my luck,
To believe that we can still escape,
Against your skin, against your skin stretch out,
And tell myself that everything is going to end.
