Quand tes cheveux s’étalent
Comme un soleil d’été
Et que ton oreiller
Ressemble aux champs de blé

Quand l'ombre et la lumière
Dessinent sur ton corps
Des montagnes, des forêts
Et des îles aux trésors 

Que je t'aime, que je t'aime, que je t'aime
Que je t'aime, que je t'aime, que je t'aime

Quand ta bouche se fait douce
Quand ton corps se fait dur
Quand le ciel dans tes yeux
D'un seul coup n'est plus pur

Quand tes mains voudraient bien
Quand tes doigts n'osent pas
Quand ta pudeur dit non
D'une toute petite voix 

Que je t'aime, que je t'aime, que je t'aime
Que je t'aime, que je t'aime, que je t'aime 

Quand tu ne te sens plus chatte
Et que tu deviens chienne
Et qu'à l'appel du loup
Tu brises enfin tes chaînes

Quand ton premier soupir
Se finit dans un cri
Quand c'est moi qui dis non
Quand c'est toi qui dis oui

Que je t'aime, que je t'aime, que je t'aime
Que je t'aime, que je t'aime, que je t'aime 

Quand mon corps sur ton corps
Lourd comme un cheval mort
Ne sait pas, ne sait plus
S'il existe encore

Quand on a fait l'amour
Comme d'autres font la guerre
Quand c'est moi le soldat
Qui meurt et qui la perd

Que je t'aime, que je t'aime, que je t'aime
Que je t'aime, que je t'aime, que je t'aime 

Que je t'aime
Que je t'aime
