Kids United Nouvelle Génération – “La Tendresse ” (Clip Officiel)

PAROLE

On peut vivre sans richesse
Presque sans le sous
Des seigneurs et des princesses
Y en a plus beaucoup
Mais vivre sans tendresse
On ne le pourrait pas
Non non non non
On ne le pourrait pas
On peut vivre sans la gloire
Qui ne prouve rien
Être inconnu dans l’histoire
Et s’en trouver bien
Mais vivre sans tendresse
Il n’en est pas question
Non non non non
Il n’en est pas question
Quelle douce faiblesse
Quel joli sentiment
Ce besoin de tendresse
Qui nous vient en naissant
Vraiment, vraiment, vraiment
Le travail est nécessaire
Mais s’il faut rester
Des semaines sans rien faire
Hé bien, on s’y fait
Mais vivre sans tendresse
Le temps nous paraît long
Non non non non
Le temps nous paraît long
Dans le feu de la jeunesse
Naissent les plaisirs
Et l’amour fait des prouesses
Pour nous éblouir
Oui mais sans la tendresse
L’amour ne serait rien
Non non non non
L’amour ne serait rien
Quand la vie impitoyable
Vous tombe dessus
On n’est plus qu’un pauvre diable
Broyé et déçu
Alors sans la tendresse
D’un cœur qui nous soutient
Non non non non
On n’irait pas plus loin
Un enfant vous embrasse
Parce qu’on le rend heureux
Tout nos chagrins s’effacent
On a les larmes aux yeux
Mon dieu, mon dieu, mon dieu
Dans votre immense sagesse
Immense ferveur
Faites donc pleuvoir sans cesse
Au fond de nos cœurs
Des torrents de tendresse
Pour que règne l’amour
Règne l’amour
Jusqu’à la fin des jours

Louane – JOUR 1 (Vidéo Officielle)

PAROLE

Jour un,
Amour numéro un
C’est l’amour suprême dis moi que tu m’aimes
Je veux un jour numéro deux
Une suite à l’hôtel supplément mortel
Je t’ai regardé toute la nuit
Danser sur mon âme n’est plus permis
Neuf Jours la vie c’est du velours
Et l’éternité, une nécessité
Jour dix, variation du délice
Que voudrais tu faire?
Une ballade en mer
Chaque jour dépendance à l’amour, pas de danse autour
C’est le jour un celui qu’on retient
Celui qui s’efface quand tu me remplaces
Quand tu me retiens c’est celui qui revient
C’est le jour un celui qu’on retient
Celui qui s’efface quand tu me remplaces
Quand tu me retiens c’est celui qui revient
Cent Jours si c’était un jour sans
Sans en avoir l’air de l’orage dans l’air
Jour mille, t’as touché dans le mile
Et sans stérébenthine cachée dans la poitrine
Chaque jour dépendance à l’amour, pas de danse autour
C’est le jour un celui qu’on retient
Celui qui s’efface quand tu me remplaces
Quand tu me retiens c’est celui qui revient
C’est le jour un celui qu’on retient
Celui qui s’efface quand tu me remplaces
Quand tu me retiens c’est celui qui revient
Hm hm hm hm
Ohohoh ohohohohoh
C’est le jour un celui qu’on retient
Celui qui s’efface quand tu me remplaces
Quand tu me retiens c’est celui qui revient
C’est le jour un celui qu’on retient
Celui qui s’efface quand tu me remplaces
Quand tu me retiens c’est celui qui revient
C’est le jour un celui qu’on retient
Celui qui s’efface quand tu me remplaces
Quand tu me retiens c’est celui qui revient

French Grammar: This, That, These, & Those

In other words, “this, that, these, and those.” We have four of these in English (as just demonstrated), and four in French as well, although they aren’t exactly the same.… Read more →
