Tous les blues sont écrits pour toi

(Jean-Jacques Goldman)

"I woke up this morning baby,

The blues was pouring out of me"

Cent fois ces mots je les ai dits

Ces mots que d'autres avaient écrits

De toute ma voix, de toute mon âme

"With all the soul that I can"

Le blues comme on me l'a appris

"I woke up this morning baby"

Mais ce matin là, j'ai compris

La peine aux longs champs de coton

J'imaginais de mon cocon

Les coups, le sang, les temps boueux

J'avais mal en fermant les yeux

"His baby's far away"

J'ai des pardons, j'ai des prières

Mais l'blues c'est pas des phrases en l'air

"I woke up this morning baby"

Mais ce matin t'as vraiment froid

Tu comprends du fond de ta poitrine

Tous les blues sont écrits pour toi

"Oh, oh I feel, the blues in me

Nobody knows how I really feel

Nobody knows, nobody cares"

Les mots te brûlent un par un comme s'ils

Comme s'ils t'appartiennent enfin

Ces blues étaient les tiens

De toute ma voix, toute mon âme,

"With all the soul that I can"

Le blues qu'on n'm'a jamais appris

"I woke up this morning, the blues was pouring deep inside of me baby

Nobody knows, the blues was pouring out of me baby

Nobody knows, nobody cares

Nobody, nobody, nobody"

I feel it, baby

"I woke up this morning baby,

The blues was pouring out of me"

A hundred times I said those words

Those words others had written

With all my voice, with all my soul

"With all the soul that I can"

The blues as I learnt it

"I woke up this morning baby"

But that morning, I understood

The hard work in the long cotton fields

I was imagining from my cocoon

The hits, the blood, the mud weather

I was hurt when I close my eyes

"His baby's far away"

I have forgivenesses, I have prayers

But the blues is not idle talk

"I woke up this morning baby"

But this morning you're really cold

You're understanding deep in your chest

All the blues are written for you

"Oh, oh I feel, the blues in me

Nobody knows how I really feel

Nobody knows, nobody cares"

The words are burning you as if

As if they belong to you at last

Those blues were yours

With all my voice, with all my soul,

"With all the soul that I can"

The blues which nobody never taught me

"I woke up this morning, the blues was pouring deep inside of me baby

Nobody knows, the blues was pouring out of me baby

Nobody knows, nobody cares

Nobody, nobody, nobody"

I feel it, baby
