Les Etoiles
Melody Gardot Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Les étoiles, les étoiles, les étoiles
Dites-moi étoiles, pourquoi je vous regarde?
Les étoiles, les étoiles, les étoiles
Dites-moi étoiles, qui vous regardera?

Les étoiles, les étoiles
Si seulement je savais
Dites moi étoiles, de qui obtenez-vous la lumière?

Les étoiles, les étoiles
Vous qui êtes belle dans les cieux
Dites-moi étoiles, qui vous donnera l'amour?

The stars, the stars, shining up above
Tell me stars, who will give you love?
The stars, the stars, lights of white and blue
Tell me stars, why I look to you?





Les étoiles, les étoiles, les étoiles
Dites-moi étoiles, pourquoi je vous regarde?

Elle a une voix magnifique. Et c'est très agréable ce mélange de jazz et de rythmes brésiliens.
