Cocorosie – The Sea Is Calm lyrics

C'est l'histoire d'un homme
Au coeur de bois
La mer est calme
Sous l'йcran de la camйra
Comme une ampoule electrique grillйe
Dans un seau d'eau

The sea is calm
Through the video camera
Like a dead light bulb
In a bucket of water
Yes in a bucket of water

The sea is calm
Through handmade lenses
Like animals
In soundless dream
Like animals
In bottles of butter
A miniature sailboat
Tin foil and paper
The waves are big
And there's a warm wind...

Il est sous le feu des projecteurs
D'un soleil cassй
Il a jetй son corps comme une ancre
Comme un morceau de sucre
Et s'est dissout

He's in the spotlight of a broken sun
He dropped his body like an anchor
Like a lump of sugar
And he dissolved

On the anniversary of his death
She drew a beautiful picture of a whale
She drew a picture of a whale
She drew a beautiful picture of a whale
She drew a beautiful picture of a whale

Pour l'anniversaire de sa mort...
