Holy Fuck, Michel Sardou, why have I never paid attention to these lyrics before?

A faire pâlir tous les Marquis de Sade
A faire rougir les putains de la rade
A faire crier grâce à tous les échos
A faire trembler les murs de Jéricho
Je vais t'aimer

So that every Marquis de Sade would turn pale

So that the whores by the roadside would blush

So that every echo cries for mercy

So that the walls of Jericho tremble

(that’s how) I will love you

A faire flamber des enfers dans tes yeux
A faire jurer tous les tonnerres de Dieu
A faire dresser tes seins et tous les Saints
A faire prier et supplier nos mains
Je vais t'aimer

 

So that hellfires are set aflame in your eyes

So that the Thunder of God will curse

So that the your [chest] and the Saints shall rise

So that our hands pray and beg

I will love you

 

Je vais t'aimer
Comme on ne t'a jamais aimée
Je vais t'aimer
Plus loin que tes rêves ont imaginé
Je vais t'aimer je vais t'aimer

I will love you

as you have never been loved

I will love you

beyond your wildest dreams

I will love you, I will love you


Je vais t'aimer
Comme personne n'a osé t'aimer
Je vais t'aimer
Comme j'aurais tellement aimé être aimé
Je vais t'aimer je vais t'aimer

I will love you

As no one has dared love you

I will love you

As I would have so loved to be loved
 

A faire vieillir à faire blanchir la nuit
A faire brûler la lumière jusqu'au jour
A la passion et jusqu'a la folie
Je vais t'aimer je vais t'aimer d'amour

So that the night grows old and whitens

So that light will burn until day comes

With passion, and to madness

I will love you, I will love you with love


A faire cerner à faire fermer nos yeux
A faire souffrir à faire mourir nos corps
A faire voler nos âmes aux septièmes cieux
A se croire morts et faire l'amour encore
Je vais t'aimer

So that our eyelids lower, so that our eyes close

So that our bodies suffer, so that our bodies die

So that our souls fly to seventh heaven

So we believe ourselves dead and yet still making love

I will love you


Je vais t'aimer
Comme on ne t'a jamais aimée
Je vais t'aimer
Plus loin que tes rêves ont imaginé
Je vais t'aimer je vais t'aimer

I will love you

As no one has ever loved you

I will love you

Beyond what your dreams have imagined

I will love you I will love you

Je vais t'aimer
Comme personne n'a osé t'aimer
Je vais t'aimer
Comme j'aurais tellement aimé être aimé
Je vais t'aimer je vais t'aimer

 

I will love you

As no one has dared to love you

I will love you

As I would so have loved to be loved

I will love you   I will love you

My French skills are super rusty but I think it's quite clear that this is creepy stalker song, non?

I suppose some could call it creepy- but I feel it is more like, scorching HOTT. I will put a quick trans up- maybe I am missing the creepy in favor of teh *guh* ness?

Ok, so my French is really fail. That probably can be construed as a little stalkerish if you squint, but yeah is really *guh*. ^_^

Now make it such that it has the same rhyme scheme!

Haha, y'know, I almost tried. Then I realized it wouldn't be worth the effort b/c there's no way to keep literal meaning in the 2nd verse set... :p

Also, you said "such that". I like your LInguistics brain? yes.

Such that is totally underused.

There is a copy of 1000 nights and one where the author managed to get all the poetry to rhyme. It's insane. I'll look up the author later

Man, what does it say about me that I am the only one who doesn't get stalker from this? And man, I get "stalker" everywhere. Including almost on the metro the other night...

Anyway, yes,

"What if the love of your life said this to you?"

Exactly. *guh* :D

Hope all is well with you :)

I know! Finding French music in the US is HARD. Ugh. But you win for trying. I would assume Sardou would be a bit easier than Voisine (as he's a bit bigger internationally?) but I'm not sure. Amazon has it, but that costs monies..

If I had cds, I would lend you, but for now, I direct you again to youtube and imeem...
