Paris At Night

Rating: 4.1
Trois allumettes une à une allumées dans la nuit
La premiére pour voir ton visage tout entier
La seconde pour voir tes yeux
La dernière pour voir ta bouche
Et l'obscuritè tout entière pour me rappeler tout cela
En te serrant dans mes bras.

(translation:
Three matches one by one struck in the night
The first to see your face in its entirety
The second to see your eyes
