Lyrics

J'ai entendu parler de ces gens dont le coeur s'embrase
un instant devient une extase et un ciel se repand
et moi j'aurais pu trouver un amant doux, une histoire calme
me perdre dans une eudemonie sans vacarme
dans les limbes d'une belle habitude

oui mais moi j'aime un connard!
Et malgres les larmes je persiste a m'y croire
et malgres les larmes je persiste a me voir
dans les bras de ce connard

comment faire pour qu'il m'aime?
Comment forcer le son?
Comment chasser l'impossible passion?
Ou mourir dignement lorsque les trains de lyon
entrent si doucement dans leur station?

Elle est la dans ma peau, elle est la
elle m'a craqué les os et la tête
moi j'ai tout fait foirer, moi j'ai fini de vibrer
perdue et j'ai plus rien à perdre

parce que moi j'aime un connard!
Et malgres les larmes je persiste a m'y croire
et malgres les larmes je persiste a me voir
dans les bras de ce connard

et moi j'aime cette douleur
j'me deshabille pour mieux sentir ta froideur
je chante pour mieux qu'on m'arrache le coeur
parce que moi j'aime un connard

aaand translation

I've heard of those people whose hearts catch on fire
an instant becomes an ecstasy, and a sky spills out
and I could've found a gentle lover, a calm story
could've lost myself in a eudaimonia without noise
in the limbo of a pretty habit

but instead, I love a jerk!
and despite the tears I continue to delude myself
and despite the tears I continue to see myself
in the arms of that jerk!

how can I make him love me?
how can I force the sound?
how can I force this impossible passion?
or die with dignity when the trains of Lyon
come so quietly into their stations..

she's there in my skin
she's there and she's cracked my bones and my head
and me, I fucked everything up
I'm done vibrating
I'm lost and I have nothing to lose

..because I love a jerk!
and despite the tears I continue to delude myself
and despite the tears I continue to see myself
in the arms of that jerk!

but I love that pain
I undressed just to feel your coldness
and now I sing just so you can tear out my heart better
because I love a jerk!

God this is so lovely! The baby piano did give such a nice touch to it, and you have a wonderful voice! Not to mention how much I find French so beautiful (I'll still learn it one day)
Say, I tried being horrible and it translated the title to I love/like and asshole, is that it or is it completely wrong XD A translation or just a small resume of what it's talking about does help to evaluate the song, as to see if the elements all harmonize and fit together? Either way, it's wonderful and I'm really jealous of your beautiful musical talents c:

I love it! I wish I could speak french to understand it though lol. and playing it on a baby piano gave it a certain quality that made it beautiful. I'm not sure on how to describe it though, but it was beautiful. :hug:

I'd love to hear it on a grand. Right now it lacks a bit of rhythm but that might be because of the empty sound of the baby piano.
camillemai's avatar
Yeah, I thought that might be a problem.. can't tell cause I know what the beat of the song is in my head, haha. Thanks for the input (:

Shh...break into a concert hall and record it there on a grand. Or get an accordion to accompany you!

Actually that's exactly what I'm gonna do on thursday :D (except we don't have to *break* in cause it's at my bassist's school!)
