Je saigne en regardant ma vie
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
Je saigne en regardant ma vie 
Qui va s'éloigner sur les flots ;
Mon âme unique m'est ravie
Et la sombre clameur des flots
Couvre le bruit de mes sanglots.

Qui sait si cette mer cruelle 
La ramènera vers mon cœur ?
Mes regards sont fixés sur elle;
La mer chante, et le vent moqueur
Raille l'angoisse de mon cœur.
