FRENCH POP LYRICS

Keren Ann is a singer-songwriter who was born in Israel but moved to France at the age of 11. This may partly explains her wonderful clear diction, which is helpful to those of us using songs to help us improve our French.

Her first couple of albums were co-written with Benjamin Biolay, and their gentle sophistication saw Ann acclaimed by some as the new Françoise Hardy. This song comes from the second LP, ‘La Disparition’ (2002), and it also appears on the soundtrack of ‘Clara et Moi’ (2004).

AU COIN DU MONDE

Tombent les nuits 
à la lueurs de bougies qui fondent
Et que la lumière soit
Passent les heures 
que s'écoulent à jamais les secondes
Et que la lumière soit

Au loin entends-tu le bruit qui court ?
Au point juste au point du jour
A deux pas de chez toi
A deux pas de chez moi

Tombent les feuilles 
et les larmes sur tes joues qui roulent
Et que la lumière soit
Passent les anges 
et les orages au dessus des foules
Et que la lumière soit

Au loin entends-tu le bruit qui court ?
Au point juste au point du jour
A deux pas de chez toi
A deux pas de chez moi

Et que la lumière soit
Comme au premier jour du premier mois
De nos corps à corps
Et que la lumière soit

Dans la cité qui n'en finit pas
Que vienne l'aurore
A deux pas de chez toi
A deux pas de chez moi

Au loin on voit
les neiges qui fondent
Au coin juste au coin du monde
A deux pas de chez toi
A deux pas de chez moi
Que la lumière soit
AT THE CORNER OF THE WORLD

The nights fall 
into the glow of melting candles
And let there be light
The hours pass 
they flow but never the seconds
And let there be light

Can you hear that sound in the distance?
Right at the moment of daybreak
Two steps away from your place
Two steps away from mine

The leaves fall
and tears roll down your cheeks
And let there be light
The angels pass overhead
and the thunderstorms over the crowds
And let there be light

Can you hear that sound in the distance?
Right at the moment of daybreak
Two steps away from your place
Two steps away from mine

And let there be light
Like on the first day of the first month
Of our passionate embrace
And let there be light

In the city that never ends
Let the dawn come
Two steps away from your place
Two steps away from mine

In the distance we can see 
the snow melting
Right at the corner of the world
Two steps away from your place
Two steps away from mine
Let there be light
