Jean Ferrat - To understand


Original Title: "Comprendre"
I'll teach you the water, the light
The tree, the spring, the torrent
The secret of the vines, of the stones
The noise of the wind

You, you'll teach me the panther
The cat, the fox and the bird
The wounded shout of the lonely one
Far from the herd
We will learn to see hthings
And their why and their how
I'd have the innocense of the roses
And you the one of the children

To understand
The flower and the fruit
To understand
The world of today

You'll teach me your eyes of flowers,
Your necklaces arms, your flame hips
Your bee dream, and heartbreak,
Your womanly laugh
I'd be the shadow which follows you
That part always in ourselves
Which slips away from the other and runs away from
What we love
We will learn to know each others
By toppling the bans
I'll be the open window
And you the night

To understand
The flower and the fruit
To understand
The world of today

We will conjugate the future
There every moment in you
By sharing the wine, the laugh
With those ones
Who live higher in their dreams
Who hate solitude
Who hunt the shadow and the lie
Of the habits
We will learn to see the world
With those men of today
Whose dreams merge with ours
Towards infinity

To understand
The flower and the fruit
To understand
The world of today

Original Title: " Faut vivre " Despite the big eyes of the void "It's to better eat you, child" And the silence...
