Desert
Émilie Simon Lyrics


Oh mon amour, mon âme sœur
Je compte les jours je compte les heures
Je voudrais te dessiner dans un désert
Le désert de mon cœur

Oh mon amour, ton grain de voix
Fait mon bonheur à chaque pas
Laisse-moi te dessiner dans un désert
Le désert de mon cœur

Dans la nuit parfois, le nez à la fenêtre
Je t'attends et je sombre
Dans un désert, dans mon désert, voilà

Oh mon amour, mon cœur est lourd
Je compte les heures je compte les jours
Je voudrais te dessiner dans un désert
Le désert de mon cœur

Oh mon amour, je passe mon tour
J'ai déserté les alentours
Je te quitte, voilà c'est tout

Dans la nuit parfois, le nez à la fenêtre
J'attendais et je sombre
Jetez au vent mes tristes cendres, voilà

Oh mon amour, mon âme soeur
Je compte les jours je compte les heures
Je voudrais te dessiner dans un désert
Oh mon amour, mon âme soeur
Je compte les jours je compte les heures
Je voudrais te dessiner dans un désert
Le désert de mon coeur

Oh mon amour, ton grain de voix
Fait mon bonheur à chaque pas
Laisse-moi te dessiner dans un désert
Le désert de mon coeur

Dans la nuit parfois, le nez à la fenêtre
Je t'attends et je sombre
Dans un désert, dans mon désert, voilà

Oh mon amour, mon coeur est lourd
Je compte les heures je compte les jours
Je voudrais te dessiner dans un désert
Le désert de mon coeur

Oh mon amour, je passe mon tour
J'ai déserté les alentours
Je te quitte, voilà c'est tout

Dans la nuit parfois, le nez à la fenêtre
J'attendais et je sombre
Jetez au vent mes tristes cendres, voilà

I wondered what the video meant for this song, and after I read the lyrics translation, I feel maybe the way she is very small in the beginning shows that she feels small and lonely, and the way she is pulling herself apart is showing her becoming self-destructive or depressed because of her loneliness. And then when the hands come to her and sew up her open wounds, this is like her being found by someone that's making her feel loved, so at the end of the video she is a normal size. I recommend reading the translated lyrics or listening to her english cover, I'm not sure if this is the true meaning, but looking at it this way makes the video more beautiful to me. <3

"Inspired by the fragile, gamine charm of the artist, Philippe André has created an engaging promo for Désert. It opens with a wide shot of a doll-sized Emilie perched lifelessly on a full-size chair, her face blank and expressionless as she struggles to form the lyrics to the song. Distractedly she picks at long cuts on her arm and chest, pulling out strands of stuffing which begin to grow and blossom, ladybirds and butterflies emerging as she sings her wistful song. Salvation arrives in the form of a rough-looking pair of hands, which gently remove the trailing flora and fauna and stitch up the wounds. By now Emilie is singing with new confidence and, as the camera pulls back, we see that not only has she been mended, but she has become a full-size and independent person." Katrina Dodd, may 2003

Interesting. My thought is that, as she says " my love " and at the same time she says her heart is deserted, my thought is that she feels uncomfortable and lonely without being able to explain it even though she loves someone. That is a complex feeling but many persons may have felt it though. It is not rare at all. So as she says she is leaving her love, she is at the same time suffering and hurting herself, and at the same time freeing herself...that is why flowers come out from her wounds. For me, the lover is good to her (he helps her heel her wounds) but by telling him very simply that she quits, she has acquired his help and she has grown up at the same time. I don't know if that make sens...but I like the clip this way too :)
