Jacques Brel - I do not know


jacques brel - je ne sais pas par bisonravi1987
Original Title: "Je ne sais pas"
I do not know why the rain
Leaves up there its rags
That are the heavy grey clouds
to lay down on our hillsides

I do not know why the wind
plays in the bright mornings
to peddle the children's laughs
frail chimes of winter

I do not know anything about all this
But I know I still love you

I do not know why the road
That pushes me toward the city
Has the sickly smell of the routs
From poplar tree to poplar tree

I do not know why the veil
Of the frozen fog that escorts me
Makes me think to the Cathedral
Where ones prays for the dead loves

I do not know anything about all this
But I know I still love you

I do not know why those streets
Open in front of me one by one
Virgin and cold, cold and naked
Only my steps and no moon

I do not know why the night
Makes use of me like of a guitar
Forced me to come here
To cry in front of this station

I do not know anything about all this
But I know I still love you

I do not know at what time leaves
That sad train for Amsterdam
That a couple has to take tonight
A couple of which you are the woman

And I do not know for which port
Leaves from Amsterdam that big ship
which shatters my heart and my body
Our love and my future

I do not know anything about all this
But I know I still love you
But I know I still love you

in addition to the translation of the dialogue at the beginning of the video:
- I mostly like writing songs and then I like to sing a specific metric because we manage to write songs only when we sing everyday At least in my opinion because we write song with a vocabulary that is not common, not the one of everyone, that is not the one we have outside of writing songs And we manage to know the weight or the value of the words only when singing everyday
- Does it happen to you to be annoyed by a word?
- Yes often
- Do you change it?
- No it's too late
- How so, it's too late?
- well, yes it's too late
- But a song can be corrected
- No, no, songs are like men
- Do you agree to go on the set there, please
Jacques Brel do you like all your songs?
- No, not all of them, oh no
- Your favorite?
- My favorite it's "I don't know"
