Où vivre ? Dans quelle ombre

Language: French (Français)

Où vivre ? Dans quelle ombre
Étouffer mon ennui ?
Ma tristesse est plus sombre
  Que la nuit.

Où mourir ? Sous quelle onde
Noyer mon deuil amer ?
Ma peine est plus profonde
  Que la mer.

Où fuir ? De quelle sorte
Égorger mon remord ?
Ma douleur est plus forte
  Que la mort.

Translation(s): ENG ITA RUS
