Written by Kate Bush

Je viens
Comme un chat
Par la nuit si noire.
Tu attends,
Et je tombe
Dans tes ailes blanches, la-la-la...
Et je vole,
Et je coule
Comme une plume.

Si les grands yeux de mon Dieu
Ne me gardaient pas,
Je te volerais

Ne t'enfuis pas!
Tu as des ailes,
Le pouvoir de me quitter.
Tu es tombe - You fell
Du ciel comme un ange, la-la-la
Et j'ai peur
Que le ciel
Te reprenne.

Si les grands yeux de mon Dieu
Ne me gardaient pas,
Je te volerais.

Je viens
Comme un chat
Par la nuit si noire.

Je t'en prie,
Je t'en prie,
Je t'en prie,
Je t'en prie,
Je t'en prie,
Je t'en prie--
Ne t'enfuis
Pas!


English Translation:
Don't Fly Away

I am coming
Like a cat
Through the night so black.
You are waiting,
And I fall
Into your white wings, la-la-la...
And I fly,
And I sink
Like a feather.

If the great eyes of my God
Were not watching (over) me,
I would steal you away.

Don't fly away!
You have wings,
The power to leave me.
You fell
From the sky like an angel, la-la-la
And I'm afraid
That the sky
Will take you back.

If the great eyes of my God
Weren't watching (over) me,
I would steal you away.

I am coming
Like a cat
Through the night so black.

I beg you,
I beg you,
I beg you,
I beg you,
I beg you,
I beg you--
Don't fly
