Ce soir mon cœur fait chanter

Language: French (Français)

Ce soir mon cœur fait chanter
des anges qui se souviennent...
Une voix, presque mienne,
par trop de silence tentée,

monte et se décide
à ne plus revenir;
tendre et intrépide,
à quoi va-t-elle s'unir?

Tonight my heart makes

Language: English after the French (Français)

Tonight my heart makes 
angels sing, remembering...
A voice, almost mine,
tempted by too much silence

soars up and decides
to never come back:
tender and calm,
what to blend with?
