Lyrics

LyricsPoetic Translation
Toutes les nuitz que sans vous je me couche,All the nights that I lie down without you,
Pensant à vous ne fay que sommeiller,Thinking of you, I learn for sleep's abyss
Et en revant jusques au resveillerTo dream of you until I wake from bliss.
Incessemment vous quiers parmi la couche,I search for you as though the blankets hide you;
Et bien souvent au lieu de vostre boucheWithout your mouth, each time I think about you,
En soupirant je baise l'oreiller.I, sighing then, my pillow softly kiss.
Clément MarotCarol Anne Perry Lagemann
