Quand je marche dans la rue
La rue vers le Sacrй-Cњur
Je me souviens des promesses
Au nom de l’amour
Je vais t’attendre lа
Viendras-tu pour moi?
Je vais t’attendre lа
Seulement toi
Tu peux me tenir
Jusqu’а ce que le soleil se cache
Et embrasse-moi doucement
Jusqu’а ce qu’il revienne
Je vais t’attendre lа
Viendras-tu pour moi?
Je vais t’attendre lа
Seulement toi
Tu prends peut-кtre du retard
Tu as peut-кtre ratй ton train
Tu ne peux peut-кtre pas me pardonner
Les ombres grandissent
Et les foules s’effacent
Je vais t’attendre lа
Viendras-tu pour moi?
Je vais t’attendre lа
Seulement toi

English Translation (approx.):
When I walk in the street
The street to the Sacred Heart
I remember the promises
In the name of love
I'll wait for you there
Will you come for me?
I'll wait for you there
only you
You can stand
Until the sun hides
And kiss me softly
Until he returns
I'll wait for you there
Will you come for me?
I'll wait for you there
only you
You may take the delay
You may have missed your train
You can not possibly forgive me
The shadows grow
And the crowds disappear
I'll wait for you there
Will you come for me?
I'll wait for you there
only you

    I've never commented on any of these before, but the Google translation posted above is pretty rough. I don't speak French very well, but I think it's more like this:

    When I walk in the road (or: when I head for the road).
    The road to the Sacred Heart.
    I remember promises.
    In the name of love.

    I will wait for you there.
    Will you come for me? (It may be more like "Would you / Won't you").
    I will wait for you there.
    Only you

    You can hold me (or: you can keep me).
    Until the sun goes into hiding.
    And embrace/kiss me sweetly.
    Until it (the sun) returns.

    Maybe you're running late.
    Maybe you missed your train.
    Maybe you can't forgive me.

    The curtains close (I'm guessing. Literally, the shades expand).
    The crowds fade.

    I will wait for you there.
    Will you come for me?
    I will wait for you there.
    Only you
