Because…

They were eyes full of desire
A look that could set any heart on fire
But mine was far from being consoled
So my heart, it just stayed cold…

They were words to make you dream
To make your whole world gleam
With dreams and visions that mattered
But my dreams, they just stayed shattered…

I was keeping my eyes on his face
Keeping my thoughts from going to another place
I focused hard to get every memory erased
But my efforts, they just went to waste…

It felt so wrong because I knew
I hated him because he wasn’t you…

ستجدني

حبيبي، ستجدني.

في كل كلمات الحب التي تقال، في كل لحنٍ حنون يسمع، في كل أغاني العشاق، ستجدني.

في كل نسمةٍ تدغدغ وجهك، في كل زهرة ربيع تعطر أجواءك، في كل ورقة خريف تزين الطبيعة بهبوطها، ستجدني.

في شمس الصيف الحارقة، في غيمة تشرين الحزينة، في رداء الشتاء الأبيض، ستجدني.

في كل يومٍ يمر، في كل شهر يمضي، في إحتفالات نهاية كل سنة، ستجدني.

ستجدني في عقلك، في كيانك، في أفكارك، فأنا، تركت أثري في كل دقة من دقات قلبك.

سأبقى و ستجدني…

Dans le froid de Janvier

C’était une nuit éclairée

Par toutes les couleurs diffusées des Champs Elysées.

Dans un pub, deux inconnus se sont rencontrés

Profitant de la magie de la grande cité

Il était son printemps juste au milieu de Janvier

Elle était le sourire réchauffant que la vie lui accordait.

Mais le temps change, les amours se cassent et tout s’est éffondré.

C’est la vie qui joue des sals tours, elle les a séparés.

Tout court, ils se sont quittés

Pour laisser leurs coeurs à jamais dans le froid de Janvier…

A pain

Lately, there is this weird pain in my chest. A pain in my heart, a pain that consumes me.

Lately, people are saying that I became addicted to that pain. Addicted to a point that it’s driving my every move.

That pain in my heart makes me dream, makes me cry and makes me laugh.

Lately, I have a pain in my heart. A pain that makes me wake up in the middle of the night, makes me remember moments I want to forget.

Lately, I have a pain in my heart. A pain that is my drug, a pain that makes want more.

Lately, I have a pain in my heart that reminds me of you, of everything you were, of all that we were.

Lately, I have a pain in my heart, and I fell in love with it because, simply, you caused it…

 

What’s left

What is it? Why are you so sad?
Go to the places where we once were, sit on the benches where we used to sit. Remember our talks, remember our laughter and smile again.
You miss me?
Go to my favourite store, pick up my favourite perfume and smell it hard. Smell it so you can remember how I used to smell next to you.
You crave for my touch?
Lie on what once was our bed and hug my pillow. Close your eyes and recall me lying there smiling with my arms around you.
You feel nostalgic?
Go to my pictures, look at my face full of joy, look at my eyes filled with life, look at my laugh.

Look at me, try to smell me, try to hear my voice, try to feel my touch because all that’s left of me is a shadow in the setting sun. Soon the light will be gone and darkness will take over the shadows…

Let’s run…

Let’s run! Let’s take off somewhere where you and I will be together!
Let’s just run away! From life, from all the problems, from all those little things, let’s run!
Let’s move away from all the crap around us, let’s jump into the unknown hand in hand, we will make it no matter what!
Let’s go build a place we can call our home! Let’s take off and go away! Let’s run!

Stranger

I see you everywhere!
I rested my head on my pillow and willed myself to sleep. I forced all the thoughts out of my head and closed my eyes.
In the whispers of the night, I heard your voice, and in the mist of my dreams, I saw your face. I was pulled towards you, I sensed my craving for your touch and I smiled…
In what appeared to be a dream, you were real, you talked, I smiled, we walked hand in hand, we sat side by side.
In what appeared to be a dream, I was in our heaven!
When my subconscious refused to give me more, I opened my eyes, I was back to reality, our heaven was no longer near, and you remain the sweetest stranger in my life…

When I jumped

I found myself on that rock willing to jump into the water.
The sky was clear, the sun was shining reminding me to enjoy summer and all was good.
People were cheerful, children were playing at the beach and my friends were cheering me to finally jump into the water. With a rush of adrenaline I launched myself in the air and splash!
The moment my head became under the surface of the water, all I could see was the clear water, all I could hear was… nothing! The sound of the waves, the shouting of the children, the laughing of my friends… all sounds disappeared.
Just in that particular moment where I was left with myself, just myself, I felt so at peace.
And in that moment, you crossed my mind…

Not there!

No! Not there!
Don’t make me go there, don’t even let me get close. I can’t even look that way!  Please do understand!
This was where we sat together, where I put my head on his shoulder and let myself dream about him.
This was where he let his eyes drown into mine, where he kissed me, where I smiled back at him, where we laughed!
You see, this was where he was mine, and this will always be our table where I sat happily with him.
But I am with you now! So please, don’t sit where he once sat by my side, please, don’t make me sit there!

Fallen

It all started when I was at the top…
I used to dance with the wind without any stop
But a day came where my world started to flop
And with it, it started… I began to drop…

The wind that used to caress me stopped being cool
And my dancing with it was transformed into something cruel
All sense was gone, every act of mercy, every rule
I lost my perceptions, I felt like such a fool.

While falling I watched all of you still there in one piece
I watched you watching my decease
And my fall finally came to a cease
When on the ground I rested in peace.

And I’m still there waiting what a new day might bring
What am I? I am fallen leaf on a beautiful day of spring…
