Lyrics

Vous aviez quoi?
Dix-sept ans, dix-neuf ans?
Vous me l’avez Ã(c)crit mais je ne m’en souviens pas.
On hÃ(c)site, on remet, on attend
Et la lettre se perd, mais vous savez tout ç a.
Vous passiez un bac G,
Un bac à bon marché,
Dans un lycÃ(c)e poubelle,
L’ouverture habituelle
Des horizons bouchÃ(c)s.
Votre question Ã(c)tait «Faut-il dÃ(c)sespÃ(c)rer?»
Vous aviez quoi?
Dix-sept ans, dix-neuf ans?
Vous aviez un prÃ(c)nom mais je ne m’en souviens pas
J’aurais dÃ", j’aurais pu, certainement
Vous renvoyer dix lignes. Je ne l’ai pas fait voilÃ
J'Ã(c)tais je n’sais plus où,
Enfoncé jusqu'au cou
Dans ma vie personnelle,
Cette angoisse Ã(c)ternelle
Du dÃ(c)clin qui rend fou.
C'Ã(c)tait avant l'Ã(c)té.
Vous aviez dÃ(c)cidé De visiter la France,
Laissant de prÃ(c)fÃ(c)rence
Le hasard vous guider.
Votre question Ã(c)tait «Faut-il dÃ(c)sespÃ(c)rer?»
Vous aviez quoi?
Dix-sept ans, dix-neuf ans?
Vous me l’avez Ã(c)crit mais je n’e m’en souviens pas.
J’aurais pu, j’aurais dÃ", certainement
Mais je n’ai même pas le temps
De m’occuper de moi.

Lyrics translation

What did you have?
Seventeen, nineteen?
You wrote it to me but I don't remember it.
We have (c)site, we deliver, we wait
And the letter gets lost, but you know all this.
You passed a bac G,
A cheap tray,
In a high school (c)e trash,
The usual opening
From the horizons bouchà (c)s.
Your question was " do I need to speak?"»
What did you have?
Seventeen, nineteen?
You had a previous name but I don't remember it
I would have, I could have, certainly
You return ten lines. I haven't done it here.
I (C) shut up I don't know where,
Deep down to the neck
In my personal life,
This dreary anxiety
From the D (C) wink that makes you crazy.
This was before the E(C)te.
You had decided to visit France,
Leaving before (c)fÃ(C)rence
Chance will guide you.
Your question was " do I need to speak?"»
What did you have?
Seventeen, nineteen?
You wrote it to me but I don't remember it.
I could have, I would have had, certainly
But I don't even have time
To take care of myself.
