Language of love

We all know French is the language of love -or at least that is what we are often told. Anyway, when it is used in music, I find it to be so beautiful. There are a couple of French musicians who I really enjoy, but Coeur De Pirate has been drifting through my speakers the last few days. Enjoy
Below, I have included the lyrics translated into English. I don't know how accurate they are, but I'm just glad this cute little song didn't end up really being about sitting around yelling and eating porkrinds on a couch, or eating hampsters and cats and then making violins out of them or something*.


So you see as everything gets mixed up
From your heart to your lips, I become a headache (problem)
Your laugh defies me to let you go
Before losing hold and abandoning
Because I would never ask you for that much
You already treat me like a big child
And we have nothing left to lose
Except our lives, which we have set aside


And he still loves me, and me I love you a little more
But he still loves me, and me I love you a little more

That’s enough of this splitting in halves
It’s harder to do, otherwise
Because without laughter it’s easier to dream
Of what we can never again touch
We take each others hands, like children
The happiness on our lips, a bit naively
And we walk together with a determined step
While our heads yell at us to stop everything

He still loves me, and you love me a little more
But he still loves me, and me I love you a little more
And despite this, he still loves me, and me I love you a little more
But he still loves me, and me I love you a little more

MUSICAL INTERLUDE
Again, me I love you a little more
But he still loves me, and me I love you a little more
Despite this, he still loves me, and me I love you a little more
But he still loves me, and me I love you a little more
But he still loves me, and me I love you a little more

REPEATS

*I know only like 3 words in French, so I often worry that the songs I listen to in French are actually horribly bad songs, but I naively love them anyway.

  1. hey, what a cute song. My current French favorite is Carla Bruni, especially "Raphael" and "Quelqu'un m'a dit". They don't translate into anything awkward either, so no worries.
