Françoise Hardy
Première rencontre (English translation)

French
English
Première rencontre
First Encounter
Je restais seule dans ma chambre
rêvant de celui qui viendrait
me sortir un jour de l'enfance
et avec qui je partirais loin

S'il m'avait fallu le décrire
bien sûr je me serais trompée
mais jamais déjà sans sourire
avant de l'avoir rencontré

Avant que le concert commence
quand tous les musiciens s'accordent
un peu comme la mer qui avance
un peu comme le mal au cœur

Quand je l'ai vu c'était un peu ça
il n'avait rien de plus qu'un autre
mais j'au su que c'était celui-là
et pas un autre
I’d sit all alone in my bedroom
Dreaming of the one who’d come
And rescue me one day from my childhood
And with whom I’d go far,
Far away
If I had been asked to describe him
I would most certainly have erred
But I had already loved his smile
Before our first encounter
Before the start of the concert
As the musicians accord in tune
As if it were the sea advancing
As if it were a heart in throe
It was so when I first saw him
He stood out no more than any other
But I knew that it was him and no other
