Ciel Étoilé
Words and music by Britt K. Arnesen

De l’autre côté du soleil (from the other side of the sun)
Une poème que la nuit m'a soufflé (a song the night breathed into me)
Avec toi dans un rêve j’ai dansé (I danced with you in a dream)
That first kiss, le ciel etoilé (the starry night)

On ne sait jamais (you never know)
On ne sait jamais
On ne sait jamais
L’amour mystère (mystery love)

Je brule de fièvre (I burn with fever) all for you
Cette maladie me coutera tout (This sickness will cost me everything)
I never stop loving you even when you tell the truth

Le matin tu auras disparu (Tomorrow you'll have disappeared)
Raison, nous l’avons perdue (Reason, we've lost you)

On ne sait jamais
On ne sait jamais
On ne sait jamais
L’amour mystère

Embrasse-moi avant de t'en aller, donne-moi (Kiss me before you go, give me)
Quelque chose que je peux garder (Something I can hold onto)
As I cross endless oceans of shame
Calling your name
Oh comme j’espère (oh how I hope)

On ne sait jamais comme j’espère
On ne sait jamais
On ne sait jamais
L’amour mystère
Le ciel étoilé
