Rue Ketanou - Bride of the water

Original Title: "La Fiancée de l'Eau"
Dead from drought, the bride of the water
married her blood to the stream's
Prince, put away your white sheet,
Prince, put away your white sheet,
Prince, put away your white sheet.
Prince, put away your white sheet

It'll never be the reddening flag of her virginity.
Look at her honor,
look at her honor,
look at her honor,
Look at her honor, fleeing away through death
Look, sad thief, absence is inside her body
You can dig earth,
you can dig earth,
you can dig earth

you can dig the earth with all your remorses
Dig, to hell, dig, dig, again
No, you'll have nothing from her
No, you'll have nothing from her
No, you'll have nothing from her

No, you'll have nothing from her
There is nothing more to take
She threw herself to the sky
You begin to understand
that not everything is for sale
that not everything is for sale
that not everything is for sale
