POUR QUOI

2014

 

I.

Pour quoi? Pour quoi?

For what? For what?

Why ask? Why cry?

Shhh… Shhh…

Don’t cry, my little child

I will answer you

I will answer you

 

Parce que. Parce que

Parce que. Parce que

Because there is, there are

Because I am, it is, they are

 

Why is the sky so high?

Why is the sea so deep?

Why are birds in the sky, and fish in the sea?

Because

Because

It’s high so we can breathe

It’s deep so we can see

Because

Because

Birds love the sky, and fish love the sea

 

Simple? No? Still?

Feel, just feel

Feel, and don’t think

Turn off your logic, and turn off your knowledge

Let go of the science and let go of the meanings

 

You only start to think

When you are not thinking

For then you are free

And you are free

And you are free

 

Your subconscious is smarter than you

It’s laughing

But it’s crying

Pour quoi, pour quoi?

Parce que, parce que

 

II.

Pour quoi? Pour quoi?

Parce que je suis belle belle

Oui, oui

Parce que je suis belle belle

 

Oh so pretty

Classy classy

Classy classy

 

The sun is shinning for me

And my eyes are where the lights will be

 

Oui, oui

They are glamorous sins

That lure you beneath

 

Sleep, child, sleep

In my heart

May you rest in peace

 

III.

Oh classy lady, classy lady

If I can just look directly into your eyes

Through your bushy eyelashes

Then there, will I see

The thoughts in your mind

And my reflection in your

In your beautiful, beautiful eyes?

 

IV.

Pour quoi? Pour quoi?

I search, but never find

What’s beyond, and what’s behind

I wish I could tell

But

Je ne sais pas

Je ne sais pas

 

V.

I tried to see through the mist

So dense, all disappeared

I reached out a trembling hand

From where extends

Hopelessly hopelessly

Into the blank

Out of reach

Never can and never will

Never lose, what you’ve never got

In mist

I find

The clearest I can ever find

 

It’s me

Darling

It’s now

 

VI.

Pour quoi? Pour quoi?

Don’t ask, don’t see

Just close your eyes

And follow my lead

 

I’m your queen

The your highness

I’m Queen Elizabeth

If that’s really my name

 

My hand is soft

And your too

So let’s put them together

Dup forms Uno

 

Together

I will lead

step by step

Till the end

Of the end

Of the end

Of the end

Of the end

Of the end

Of the end

Of the end

 

VII.

Pour quoi? Pour quoi?

The sun is sinking

With the orange light

Slowly

Gently

The light fades away

Pour quoi? Pour quoi?

 

The night is lonely

She needs a hug

And only with the sunlight gone

Can she seek for warmth

The warmth in dark
