© 2006 Margaret MacDonald

Pas besoin [no need]
De s’attacher [to connect]
De se promener [to go out]
D’avoir envie [to long for anything]
On est rien [We are nothing]
Sans se toucher [without each other’s touch]
Sans s’aimer [without each other’s love]
Sans vie [lifeless]

Je t’imagine a travers [I imagine you through…
Ces quatre murs [these four walls]
Ton univers [your universe]
Je te donne la main [I’m giving you my hand…
Que fais-tu [what do you do]
As-tu perdu [have you lost….
L’habitude [the habit] [i.e. have you forgotten how to respond]

Ni emotion [neither emotion…
Ni humanite [nor humanity]
Dans ce monde abandonne [in this abandoned world]
On est seul, habitue [we are alone, used to…
A cette vie desolee [this desolate life]
