Watch “ZAZ – Demain c’est toi (vidéo studio)” on YouTube


An internationally famous French singer with a hit for most of her songs.

Her songs/lyrics are even being used in schools to teach French.

This one is particularly moving as the lyrics are words she addresses to her unborn child.

Wishing you all again a very happy gratifying healthy new year!

Demain c’est toi
Zaz
Tomorrow is you
I trace paths that are waiting for you
Je trace des chemins qui n’attendent que toi
To you the child who comes, I precede your steps
À toi l’enfant qui vient, je précède tes pas
I whisper your name in the breath of my voice
Je murmure ton nom dans le souffle de ma voix
I will offer you the world, you I do not know
Je t’offrirai le monde, toi que je ne connais pas
I open my heart wide as you open your hands
Je t’ouvre grand mon cœur comme on ouvre ses mains
I hope you have happiness as big as mine
Je t’espère des bonheurs aussi grands que les miens
Tomorrow is you
Demain c’est toi
I learn the alphabets of each of your actions
J’apprends les alphabets de chacun de tes gestes
I sing you my dreams of spaces and Wild West
Je te chante mes rêves d’espaces et de Far West
I want for you the love, the rare and the precious
Je veux pour toi l’amour, le rare et le précieux
All the beauty of the world at your fingertips
Toute la beauté du monde à portée de tes yeux
Fists heated to white, I’m forging for tomorrow
Les poings chauffés à blanc, je forge pour demain
Your happiness that I wish as big as mine
Tes bonheurs que je souhaite aussi grands que les miens
Tomorrow is you
Demain c’est toi
I give you the keys that open all the chests
Je te donne les clés qui ouvrent tous les coffres
I spray the walls of the prisons that we offer you
Je pulvérise les murs des prisons que l’on t’offre
I run to infinity not to leave you
Je cours à l’infini pour ne pas te laisser
All I did not say is because you know it
Tout c’que je n’t’ai pas dit c’est parce que tu le sais
It’s because you know it
C’est parce que tu le sais
To you the child who comes as a little morning
À toi l’enfant qui vient comme un petit matin
I hope you have happiness as big as mine
Je t’espère des bonheurs aussi grands que les miens
Tomorrow is you
Demain c’est toi

Jean Jacques Goldman Un Tour Ensemble 2002 (Amazing live concert)


Jean Jacques Goldman is a brilliant artist. A singer, song writer, composer & exceptional musician. He started singing because he couldn’t find anyone to sing his songs the way he wanted. He was thrown onstage Malgré lui. (despite himself)
He is an artist that counts his blessings which is very rare & a free one with that… he’s responsible for his shows, his songs are non-commercial & his lyrics broaches all topics, he rarely speaks about love, is very poetical & dares to write what other would not.

Even though it’s a long video (taking space) I thought it worthwhile to share this artist with all of you 🙂

Courtesy of Wikipedia… Jean-Jacques Goldman (French pronunciation: ​[ʒɑ̃.ʒak ɡɔldˈman]; born 11 October 1951) is a Grammy Award-winning French singer-songwriter. He is hugely popular in the French-speaking world, and since 2003 has been the second-highest-grossing French living pop-rock singer, after Johnny Hallyday. In the 1990s, he was part of the trio Fredericks Goldman Jones with a string of hits.

Andrea Bocelli “Vivere Live in Tuscany” HD720p (Modified) Lajatico, Italy 2007


For those who have followed me from the start know that I’m a big fan of Italy, its language, its culture and who could be a better ambassador for its country than Andrea Bocelli.
I just had a most memorable hour thirty two minutes which transported me to a magical Tuscany warm summer evening…
I don’t usually post long videos so as to save space but this called for an infringement to the rule 🙂

FRANCIS CABREL – L’ENCRE DE TES YEUX


Francis Cabrel is a massively popular french singer who has fallen under the French classics category.
I am a big fan of French or Italian songs with a poetical tendency in the lyrics but it takes a lot for me to want to post on this blog, there has to be that something extra, should it be in the crowd of a concert, the lyrics or the tune itself.
Here, in my opinion at least, there was a combination of words & tunes that just completed each other and made me want to listen to it a few times in a row!
I hope you’ll like it too 🙂
Lyrics with translation below…

Lyrics
L’encre de tes yeux

Puisqu’on ne vivra jamais tous les deux
Puisqu’on est fous, puisqu’on est seuls
Puisqu’ils sont si nombreux
Même la morale parle pour eux
J’aimerais quand même te dire
Tout ce que j’ai pu écrire
Je l’ai puisé à l’encre de tes yeux

Je n’avais pas vu que tu portais des chaînes
À trop vouloir te regarder,
J’en oubliais les miennes
On rêvait de Venise et de liberté
J’aimerais quand même te dire
Tout ce que j’ai pu écrire
C’est ton sourire qui me l’a dicté.

Tu viendras longtemps marcher dans mes rêves
Tu viendras toujours du côté
Où le soleil se lève
Et si malgré ça j’arrive à t’oublier
J’aimerais quand même te dire
Tout ce que j’ai pu écrire
Aura longtemps le parfum des regrets.

Mais puisqu’on ne vivra jamais tous les deux…

Translation
The Ink of Your Eyes

Because we’re never going to live together
Because we’re crazy, because we’re alone
Because there are so many of them
Even morality speaks for them
I would still like to tell you
For all that I was able to write
I drew it from the ink of your eyes.

I never saw that you wore chains
Out of wanting too much to look at you
I forgot my own
We dreamed of Venice and of freedom
I would still like to tell you
All that I was able to write
It was your smile that dictated it to me.

You will come walk in my dreams for a long time
You will always come from the side
Where the sun rises
And if despite that I end up forgetting you
I would still like to tell you
All that I was able to write
Will for a long time carry the scent of regret.

But because we’re never going to live together…

Lara Fabian – Je t’aime

D’accord, il existait d’autres façons de se quitter
Quelques éclats de verres auraient peut être pu nous aider
Dans ce silence amer, j’ai décidé de pardonner
Les erreurs qu’on peut faire à trop s’aimer
D’accord la petite fille en moi souvent te réclamait
Presque comme une mère, tu me bordais, me protégais
Je t’ai volé ce sang qu’on n’aurait pas dû partager
A bout des mots, des rêves je vais crier

Je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un fou comme un soldat
Comme une star de cinéma
Je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un loup comme un roi
Comme un homme que je ne suis pas
Tu vois, je t’aime comme ça

D’accord je t’ai confié tous mes sourires, tous mes secrets
Même ceux, dont seul un frère est le gardien inavoué
Dans cette maison de pierre,
Satan nous regardait danser
J’ai tant voulu la guerre de corps qui se faisaient la paix

Je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un fou comme un soldat
Comme une star de cinéma
Je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un loup comme un roi
Comme un homme que je ne suis pas
Tu vois, je t’aime comme ça

Je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un fou comme un soldat
Comme une star de cinema
Je t’aime, je t’aime, je t’aime, je t’aime, je t’aime, je t’aime
Comme un loup comme un roi
Comme un homme que je ne suis pas
Tu vois, je t’aime comme ça

TRANSLATION:
Agree, there existed other ways of parting
A few debris of glass maybe could have helped us
In this bitter silence, I decided to forgive
The faults which we are done when loving so much
Agree, the small girl in me often claimed you
almost like a mother, you guarded me, u protected me
I’ve stolen this blood from you that we shouldn’t have shared
At end of words and dreams I’m gonna scream:

I love you, I love you
like a crazy, like a soldier
like a movie star
I love you, I love you
as a wolf, as a king
as a man that i’m not
you see, i love you like that

Agree, I trusted you all my smiles and secrets
Same those shameful, for which only a brother is the guard
In this stony house,
Satan watched us dance
I wanted so much the war of bodies which made the peace

I love you, I love you
like a crazy, like a soldier
like a star of cinema
I love you, I love you
as a wolf, as a king
as a man that i’m not
you see, i love you like that
