Quelqu'un m'a dit

When a treasured relationship is breaking up, one clings for a time to vague hopes that are as valid as rumours.

 

On me dit que nos vies ne valent pas grand-chose

Elles passent en un instant comme fanent les roses

On me dit que le temps qui glisse est un salaud

Que de nos chagrins il s'en fait des manteaux

Pourtant quelqu'un m'a dit...


 

(refrain)

 Que tu m'aimais encore

C'est quelqu'un qui m'a dit que tu m'aimais encore

Serait-ce possible alors ?


 

On me dit que le destin se moque bien de nous

Qu'il ne nous donne rien et qu'il nous promet tout

Paraît que le bonheur est à portée de main

Alors on tend la main et on se retrouve fou

Pourtant quelqu'un m'a dit...


 

 

 (refrain)

Que tu m'aimais encore

C'est quelqu'un qui m'a dit que tu m'aimais encore.

Serait-ce possible alors ?


 

 

Mais qui est-ce qui m'a dit que toujours tu m'aimais ?

Je ne me souviens plus, c'était tard dans la nuit.

J'entends encore la voix, mais je ne vois plus les traits.

"Il vous aime, c'est secret, lui dites pas que je vous l'ai dit"

Tu vois, quelqu'un m'a dit... 


 

Que tu m'aimais encore,

Me l'a-t-on vraiment dit, que tu m'aimais encore,?

Serait-ce possible alors?


 

On me dit que nos vies ne valent pas grand-chose

Elles passent en un instant comme fanent les roses

On me dit que le temps qui glisse est un salaud

Que de nos chagrins il s'en fait des manteaux

Pourtant quelqu'un m'a dit...


 

  (refrain)

Que tu m'aimais encore

C'est quelqu'un qui m'a dit que tu m'aimais encore

  Serait-ce possible alors ?

 

They tell me that our lives are not worth that much

They’re gone in an instant, the way roses wilt

They tell me that time that steals by is a rogue

That he wears our sorrows to serve as his cloaks

Yet some-one has told me…..

 

 

(refrain)

You felt love for me still

It’s some-one who told me you felt love for me still

Then could it be possibly so?


 

They tell me that fate cares not in the least about us

That he gives nothing and promises us the lot

It might look that happiness is in easy reach

So you stretch out your hand and find you've been deceived.

Yet some-one has told me……


 

(refrain)

You felt love for me still

It’s some-one who told me you felt love for me still.

Then could it be possibly so?

 

 

But who is the one who told me you still felt love for me?

I cannot recall now, it was late in the night.

I can still hear his voice, but can’t see his face any more.

"He loves you, it’s secret, don’t tell him t’was me that told you"

You see, some-one told me…


 

 

That you felt love for me still,

Did they really tell me, you felt love for me still?

Then could it be possibly so?


 

 They tell me that our lives are not worth that much

They’re gone in an instant, the way roses wilt

They tell me that time that steals by is a rogue That he wears our sorrows to serve as his cloaks

Yet some-one has told me…… 


 

 

(refrain)

You felt love for me still

It’s some-one who told me you felt love for me still.

Then could it be possibly so?
