Language: French (Français)
Celui qui vous aime est à deux pas.
Comme il est pâle : ses lèvres tremblent.
Vous riez ?
Il tient son coeur à deux mains.
Mais vous passez sans le deviner.

Playing Blind Man’s Bluff
Language: English after the French (Français)
One who loves you is just a stone’s throw away.
How pale he is: his lips tremble.
He hangs on to his heart with both hands.
But you turn around without guessing where I am.
