LYRICS IN ENGLISH & FRENCH
All that we needed, was right
Les ombres ce soir nous menacent
Open to everything happy and sad
Seeing the good, meme si tout va si mal
Voir le soleil quand la nuit nous accable
Oh, pour un jour croire aux dieux, croire aux fables
Focus on everything better today
Crier la vie quand tout autour se tait
Hold on to people they’re slipping away
Hold on to this while it’s slipping away
All that we needed, tonight
Are people who love us, and life
Je sais les douleurs et les doutes
Oh, partir est ce qu’on redoute
