Mouloudji - We have to live


Original Title: "Faut vivre"
Despite the big eyes of the void
"It's to better eat you, child"
And the silences, and the rackets
We have to live...

Despite being blind on background of night
Between the infinite depths
Billions of stars laughing...
We have to live...

Despite not always being beautiful
And that we do not have our sixteen anymore
And on hope a blank check
We have to live...

Despite the heart being at sea
To the wind of love which is still blowing
And which sometimes still intoxicates us
We have to live...

Despite us not being a genius
Is not Rimbaud who can, for god's sake
And that we look for an alibi

Despite all our dead people making merry
Who wander in the streets of our heads
We have to live...

Despite us being brave and bastards
that we have complexes galore
And that we like them, that's the worst
We have to live

Despite the ideal of youth
Which has been worn out to the nerve of the time
And by others taken back while singing
We have to live....

Despite that when we turn toward the past
We are scared to admit to ourselves
That we have changed a little still
We have to live...

Despite us being on the same journey
Be it we live as mad, we live as wise
Everything will end in a wreck
We have to live...

Despite at the sky of our chests
Inside of us, asleep sentry
In a noise of factory, moans

The blind heart which walks a tightrope
On the thread of the running present
We have to live....

Despite that inside of us a dead child
Sometimes, so little, still smiles
Like an old agonising dream
We have to live...

Despite us being in the gears
of the clerks and the inheritances
Where the heart makes itself nauseus and gets bogged down
We have to live...

Despite us making dark humor
about love which will give us an hard time
Up to the moment it tells us goodbye
We have to live...

Despite that, at every horizon
Like an intergation point,
Death looks at us with a drunken eye
We have to live...

Despite all our love oaths
All our lies day after day
And despite we only have one life
A single one for eternity
Despite us knowing it's a failure

We have to live...
