Le Chemin in English
Lyrics reviewed and translated by John Elkhoury
COMPREHENSION DIFFICULTY: EASY

Regarde-toi, assise dans l’ombre
Look at you, sitting in the shade
À la lueur de nos mensonges
At the glow of our lies
Une main glacée jusqu’à l’ongle
A hand frozen to the nail

Regarde-toi à l’autre pôle
Look at you, at the other end
Fermer les yeux sur ce qui nous ronge
Closing your eyes on what gnaws us away
On a changé à la longue
We change in the long run

[Refrain]
On a parcouru le chemin
We traveled the path
On a tenu la distance
We held the distance
Et je te hais de tout mon corps
And I hate you with all of my body
Mais je t’adore
But I love you
On a parcouru le chemin
We traveled the path
On a souffert en silence
We suffered in silence
Et je te hais de tout mon corps
And I hate you with all of my body
Mais je t’adore encore
But I love you still

Je vis dans une maison de verre
I live in a glass house
A moitié rempli de ton eau
Filled half-way with your water
Sans s’arrêter le niveau monte
Without stopping, the level rises

Je suis le fantôme qui s’égare
I am the ghost that wanders
Je suis l’étranger à ton coeur
I am the stranger in your heart
Seulement regarde comme on est seul
Only watching as if we are alone

[Refrain x3]

This KYO song is different because they teamed up with a Belgium singer, Sita. The song’s easy and repetitive nature both help and hurt my overall impression of it. I really like the song up until the end of the second verse, once the refrain starts to repeat I just skip to the next song. The singing is beautiful but the song’s message isn’t really anything special. KYO will be featured again on FrenchCrazy, so stay tuned!
