ON THE WATER (english version)

emma-shapplin-cover-macadam-flower(Author Emma Shapplin / Composer Emma Shapplin)

 

Go my love, my flame

Go, carried by the tide... even

If my reason wanders

In the shade of the reeds

 

I'll love you

All the same

Oh!

 

Go, drift off, yearning

Go my love, sail away

Only God knows if he keeps us

But I keep your words

 

I'll love you

All the same

Oh!

 

Just a straw in the wind

A wee nest on the water

Two dishevelled roses

And drifting gillyflowers

 

There at longlast I lay

If I dare

Expose

We two, adieu

 

Stripped of all tears

The frail little barge

Floats off with our alarms

And our finest assaults

 

...Drift away

Serene

Oh!

 

Just a straw in the wind

A wee nest on the water

Two dishevelled roses

And drifting gillyflowers

 

There at longlast I lay

If I dare

Expose

We two

 

I thought to see the white wing

Rise up the wave and droop

My tiny craft

Upset and stranded there

 

I sensed like a dream

When in vain we think

Of your kiss on my lips

Intense
