L'eau Des Mers 

From the country we came

to read lines from old songs

and hear old voices

l'eau des mers

wailing in the night

at our rain soaked porch

as the cigarette smoke rose

l'eau des mers

we spoke softly in the crowd

wiser to our whispers

meeting in the dark corner

l'eau des mers

traveling to new york

and meeting our families

for moments forever

l'eau des mers

Mais ces chansons ne sont pas complètes

et ne sera pas dans ce verset

L'eau des mers
