Les Aveux lyrics

Duet with france gall
Originally titled reach out to me
Music by elton john
Lyrics by michel berger
Released as a single in france in 1980

Les grands orages, de venir a moi
Jai la dans mes poings, la force de vivre
Et le filet du temps, nest que lombre qui passe
Et voila le present que je regarde en face

From the great storms, coming towards me

I hold here in my fists the strength to live

Time ran away, only its shadow goes by

And this is the reason that I can look ahead

Jai en moi la vie, jai en moi le feu
Jai en moi la tempete de celui qui veut
Jai en moi la vie, jai en moi le feu
Jai en moi la tempete, si je sais quon est deux

Life is within me, fire is within me

The strength of a storm is within me

Life is within me, fire is within me

The strength of a storm is within me, if I know we are two

Je suis leau qui dort, et le roseau qui plie
Jai le calme tranquille de la douceur des nuits
Jai la patience immence et le fil du pass
Et jai les mains tendues pour prendre et pour donner

I am like rising waters, and like a bending reed

I hold the calm tranquil softness of the night

I have great patience and past experiences

So I hold out my hands to take and to give
