Marjolaine

(F.Lemarque / R.Revil)

 

English lyrics by Nick Golovko

 

An empty street,

a veil of fog

A string to ring,

a man to walk

To walk and sing

a merry song

To come and bring

two friends to sing along

 

Marjolaine, you are so bright

Marjolaine, spring was at its height

Marjolaine, I was at war

Today Im back and knocking on your door

 

She had once said,

Ill wait for you

And he had said,

Ill come, be sure

Away he went,

still just a child

Now here he stands,

quite full of manly might

 

Marjolaine, you are so bright

Marjolaine, I had never lied

Marjolaine, I was at war

Today Im back and knocking on your door

 

So he was gone

for a decade

But this decade

has changed his fate

No thing reminds

of what he knew

Apart from skies

that still are high and blue

 

Marjolaine, you are so bright

Marjolaine, spring has now died

Marjolaine, I know full well

If love was lost, it never lives again

 

Unknown man

let his song stop

Hes faded and

was lost in fog

The other two

were gone as well

And their tune

was carried back with them

 

Marjolaine, you are so bright

Marjolaine, spring was at its height

Marjolaine, I was at war

Today Im back and knocking on your door
