Jacques Brel

Jacques Brel (French pronunciation: ​[ʒak bʁɛl]; 8 April 1929 – 9 October 1978) was a Belgian singer-songwriter who composed and performed literate, thoughtful, and theatrical songs that generated a large, devoted following in France initially, and later throughout the world.

Se tiennent par la main
Et marchent en silence
Dans ces villes éteintes
Que le crachin balance

Ne sonnent que leurs pas
Pas à pas fredonnés
Ils marchent en silence

Ils ont brûlé leurs ailes
Ils ont perdu leurs branches
Tellement naufragés
Que la mort paraît blanche

Ils reviennent d'amour
Ils se sont réveillés
Ils marchent en silence
Les désespérés

Et je sais leur chemin
Pour l'avoir cheminé
Déjà plus de cent fois
Cent fois plus qu'à moitié

Moins vieux ou plus meurtris
Ils vont le terminer
Ils marchent en silence
Les désespérés

Lente sous le pont
L'eau est douce et profonde
Voici la bonne hôtesse
Voici la fin du monde

Ils pleurent leurs prénoms
Comme de jeunes mariés
Et fondent en silence
Les désespérés

Que se lève celui
Qui leur lance la pierre
Ils ne sait de l'amour
Que le verbe s'aimer

Sur le pont n'est plus rien
Qu'une brume légère
Ça s'oublie en silence
Ceux qui ont espéré
