Jacques Bertin - They lie down side by side


Original Title: "Ils s'allongent côte à côte"
They lie down side by side,
Head turned toward the sky
Head turned toward the sky
Like they do for thirty years

Maybe they are already a little in the sky
Because of the peace surrounding them
As if they were in a small boat
Hear turned toward the sky

Around the house, the Virginia creeper
That he had planted the first day
Carries them and protects them
Or it's the night which protects them
and which carries them

And it's as if the evening
And every evening
They were going away
Toward God maybe
Who is like some sort of estuary
More luminous than the night in the night.
