Toutes les nuits
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Toutes les nuits que sans vous je me couche,
Pensant à vous ne fais que sommeiller,
Et en rêvant jusques au réveiller
Incessamment vous quiers parmi la couche,
Et bien souvent au lieu de votre bouche
En soupirant je baise l'oreiller.

Every night
Language: English  after the French (Français) 
Every night I lie down without you,
Thinking of you just makes me drowsy,
And dreaming till I wake
I continually seek you in the bed
And often instead of your lips,
Sighing I kiss the pillow.
