LYRICS TRANSLATION
Lorsque l'on tient entre ses mains
When you hold your hands
Cette richesse, avoir vingt ans
This wealth, to be twenty years old
Des lendemains pleins de promesses
A tomorrow full of promise
Quand l'amour sur nous se penche
When love on us leans
Pour nous offrir ses nuits blanches
To offer us his sleepless nights
Lorsque l'on voit, loin devant soi
When you see, far ahead of yourself
Rire la vie, brodée d'espoir
Laughing life, embroidered with hope
Riche de joies et de folies
Rich in joys and follies
Il faut boire jusqu'à l'ivresse
Drink to the point of intoxication
Sa jeunesse
His youth
Car tous les instants de nos vingt ans
For every moment of our twenty years
Nous sont comptés, et jamais plus
We are counted, and never again
Le temps perdu ne nous fait face
Time wasted does not face us
Il passe
He passes
Souvent en vain, on tend les mains
Often in vain, hands are reached
Et l'on regrette, il est trop tard
And we regret, it's too late

Sur son chemin, rien ne l'arrête
On his way, nothing stops him
On ne peut garder sans cesse
You can't keep it all the time
Sa jeunesse
His youth
Avant que de sourire et nous quittons l'enfance
Before smiling and we leave childhood
Avant que de savoir la jeunesse s'en fuit
Before we know the youth is running away
Cela semble si court que l'on est tout surpris
It seems so short that one is all surprised
Qu'avant que le comprendre on quitte l'existence
That before we understand it we leave existence
Lorsque l'on tient entre ses mains
When you hold your hands
Cette richesse, avoir vingt ans
This wealth, to be twenty years old
Des lendemains pleins de promesses
A tomorrow full of promise
Quand l'amour sur nous se penche
When love on us leans
Pour nous offrir ses nuits blanches
To offer us his sleepless nights
Lorsque l'on voit, loin devant soi
When you see, far ahead of yourself
Rire la vie, brodée d'espoir
Laughing life, embroidered with hope
Riche de joies et de folies
Rich in joys and follies
Il faut boire jusqu'à l'ivresse
