French Song
on: March 02, 2021, 22:33:57
Hello the kitcheners,

It was great to listen to your songs lately. As I told @Sebzzz, I wanted to share my last French cover with you guys  :D
I always appreciate your feedbacks, so thank you in advance for that.

You can listen to it on my SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/mylenenelym/ton-heritage.

The lyrics are in French in the description of the track but I wanted to translate them to you bellow:

Your Legacy

If you love the rainy nights
My child, my child
The streets of Italy
And the steps of passers-by
Eternal litany
Dead leaves in the wind
Giving their last scream
Then scream, my child

If you love the sunny breaks
My child, my child
Taking a midnight swim
In the great ocean
If you love the bad life
Your reflection in the pond
If you want your friends
Close to you all the time

If you pray when the night falls
My child, my child
If you don't bring flowers to the graves
But cherish the absent
If you are scared of the bomb
And the too large sky
If you talk to your shadow
From time to time

If you love the low tide
My child, my child
The sun on the terrace
And the moon under the wind
If you often lose your trace
As soon as spring comes
If life exceeds you
Then pass on, my child

It is not your fault
It is your legacy
And it will only get worse
When you will be my age
It is not your fault
It is your flesh, your blood
You will have to deal with it
Or rather not

If you forget first names
Addresses and ages
But almost never the sound
Of a voice or a face
If you love what is good
If you see mirages
If you prefer Paris
When the storm comes

If you like bitter tastes
And white winters
If you like the last glasses
And troubling mysteries
If you like feeling the earth
And the volcano erupting
If you fear the void
Then empty, my child

It is not your fault
It's your legacy
And it will ongly get worse
When you will be my age
It is not your fault
It is your flesh, your blood
You will have to deal with it
Or rather not

If you love leaving before
My child, my child
Before the other awakens
Before he leaves you
If you fear the sleep
And time passing
If you love the silver-gilt autumn
Wonder, red blood

If you are scared of the crowd
But bear people
If your ideals crumble
On the night of your 20th birthday
And if nothing happens
As you planned it
If you are nothing but a rolling stone
Then roll, my child

It is not your fault
It's your legacy
And it will ongly get worse
When you will be my age
It is not your fault
It is your flesh, your blood
You will have to deal with it
Or rather not

Your last cover @Mylene ? Does that mean you are going to post originals from now on?
(Smiley!!!)

As usual you pull it off. It’s very difficult doing a cover of a very good original.
When I hear this, I can’t help but hoping you’ll do posting originals again.
You’re soooo talented.
Really.
Kind regards, Gus

Hello @Mylene,

Such a beautiful song that has everything from the moment those beautiful piano chords begin to play to the wonderful singing.  I don't think there is any need to critique.  I can simply sit back and enjoy the performance. Delightful!

Beautiful work, @Mylene !  You have a very nice voice!

Did you play this to a click, by chance?  The reason I ask is that I feel that the piano needs some of that dynamic electricity that free played piano delivers so well.  I think it would really bring out your ability as a vocalist and add heaps of emotion to the performance

I've never been to France.....but, I've been to Montreal.
I don't know what you are saying, I just wanted to bask in the loveliness of the language................ I love it.
I just read the words, and they're pretty good...........it's just that they make better sense, to me, when I take your word for it!

Thank you very much @Knate for your comment!
Yes indeed, I played it with a click in order to frame me. But now that you mention it, I understand what you mean and I agree with you. I tend to feel a difference between my free played songs in live and my recordings. And you're right, the difference lies in emotion. Thank you so much for awakening me on this, it really opens me a new door for my future recordings... I will try to record a free played song next time for sure.


Thank you @IronKnee I appreciate it that you like the French language. I would love to go to Montreal and Canada one day, it seems lovely.

@Mylene I keep telling myself I must brush up on my French - it's such a beautiful language. This is lovely - very French which is a good thing in my book. You have a lovely voice which suits this song perfectly. I'm a rock musician but it didn't stop from me enjoying this. Wonderful :)
