Jacques Brel - It snows over Liège


Original Title: "Il neige sur Liège"
It's snowing
It's snowing over Liège
And the snow over Liège
To snow puts gloves on

It's snowing
It's snowing over Liège
Black crescent of the Meuse
On the forehead of a white clown

It's broken the shout
of the hours and the birds
of the children with hoops
And of the black and of the grey

It's snowing
It's snowing over Liège
Which the river crosses
Without noise

It's snowing
It's snowing over Liège
And so much turns the snow
Between the sky and Liège

That we do not know anymore
If it's snowing
If it's snowing over Liège
Or if it's Liege that snows towards the sky

And the snow marries
The debutant lovers
The walking lovers
On the whitened Square²

It's snowing
It's snowing over Liège
That the river carries without noise

Tonight
Tonight, it's snowing
Over my dreams and over Liège
That the river pierces without noise

²Le Carré (the Square) is the name of a neighborhood of Liège
