About Il venait d'avoir 18 ans

Il venait d'avoir 18 ans (which translates to "He just turned 18") is a French song from 1973, interpreted by Dalida. It was written by Pascal Sevran, Serge Lebrail and Pascal Auriat. It is also the fifth and last number on the album Dalida (commonly known as Julien), published in 1973. In 1974 Dalida released the song on the B-side of her single "Gigi l'amoroso". The song, which reached the 13th place in the German charts and 33rd in the Italian charts, won the Prize of the Academy of the French Record in 1975, and was later recorded in five languages (German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and English), benefiting from an exit single for each of them.

Il venait d'avoir dix-huit ans
Il était beau comme un enfant
Fort comme un homme
C'était l'été évidemment
Et j'ai compté en le voyant
Mes nuits d'automne
J'ai mis de l'ordre à mes cheveux
Un peu plus de noir sur mes yeux
Ça l'a fait rire
Quand il s'est approché de moi
J'aurais donné n'importe quoi
Pour le séduire

Il venait d'avoir dix-huit ans
C'était le plus bel argument de sa victoire
Il ne m'a pas parlé d'amour
Il pensait que les mots d'amour
Sont dérisoires
Il m'a dit "j'ai envie de toi"
Il avait vu au cinéma
"Le Blé en Herbe"
Au creux d'un lit improvisé
J'ai découvert, émerveillée
Un ciel superbe

Il venait d'avoir dix-huit ans
Ça le rendait presque insolent de certitude
Et pendant qu'il se rhabillait
Déjà vaincue, je retrouvais ma solitude
J'aurais voulu le retenir
Pourtant je l'ai laissé partir
Sans faire un geste
Il m'a dit "c'était pas si mal"
Avec la candeur infernale de sa jeunesse
J'ai mis de l'ordre à mes cheveux
Un peu plus de noir sur mes yeux
Par habitude
J'avais oublié simplement
Que j'avais deux fois dix-huit ans
