“Je te vois enfin” Lyrics

Pardonnez-leur ils ne savent pas ce qu’ils ont fait

J’ai plongé mes mains dans la terre du sentier

Pardonnez-leur ils ne savent plus où ils vont

Elle m’attendait près du ruisseau pour me parler
Il meurt en leur âme à la fois autre chose
Ils ont les larmes et les pétales de rose
J’ai dit
J’ai dit
Je crois qu’ils ont trop souffert

Et que demeure Londres !
Nous nous étions assemblés en moins d’une seconde
Oh, mon père je crois qu’ils ont péché

j’ai plongé mes mains dans la terre du sentier

Il est impossible dans vos livres de ne pas pécher !

Elle m’attendait près du ruisseau pour me parler

Nous qui savons lire, nous qui vous l’avons appris pour vous faire plaisir !

Pardonnez monseigneur nous étions encerclés

Je me souviens jeune animal je courais bien loin
Dans la forêt pour chercher mon chemin
J’étais perdu mais comptait seulement le présent
Le soleil qui perce à travers les feuilles d’ambre et de menthe et je vois
oh je vois ma femme
La même histoire depuis la course des âmes
Animal ou poisson, tu n’as pas changé
Il semblerait que depuis toujours je t’ai cherché

Mon amour rime avec toujours,
toujours !

Et les choix sont faits
Et les choix se font
Un pied devant l’autre
Et seconde après seconde …

Enfant, enfant
Je te vois enfant !

Oh mon amour te voilà je te vois enfin !

Enfin, enfin
Je te vois enfin
Oh mon amour te voilà je te vois enfin

Christine and the Queens – I finally see you (translation)

Forgive them, they know not what they have done

I plunged my hands in the path’s soil

Forgive them, they know not where they’re going anymore

She was waiting by the stream to speak with me
Within their soul dies something other at once *
They have the tears and the rose petals
I said
I said
I believe they have suffered too much

And London shall remain!
We had gathered in less than a second
Oh father, I think they have sinned

I plunged my hands in the path’s soil

In your books it is impossible not to sin!

She was waiting by the stream to speak with me

We who know how to read, we who learned to please you!

Forgive us my lord we were surrounded

I remember young animal I was running so far
Into the forest to look for my path
I was lost but counted only the present
The sun that pierced through the leaves of amber and mint and I see
Oh I see my wife **
The same story since the race of souls
Animal or fish, you haven’t changed
It would seem that I have looked for you forever

My love rhymes with always,
always!
And the choices are made
And the choices are being made
One foot before the other
And second after second…

Child, child
I see you as a child!
Oh my love here you are I finally see you!

At last, at last
I finally see you
Oh my love here you are I finally see you

* this is an attempt at a poetic translation since the original line in French has no “clear” meaning in the sense that it’s a sort of poetic collage
** original word in French is “femme” which can mean both wife and woman, my first reflex was to translate to wife, but maybe it means to be ambiguous and it can be understood as “woman”
