ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF THE MEANING OF FRENCJ LYRICS FOLLOWS FRENCH LYRICS.
La pluie, le verglas, ton absence m’ennuient
Le chemin du retour s’eternise
La nuit m’envahit et cette nuit m’epuise
Je ferme la porte sans bruit

J’ai vu deux millions d’etoiles
Devant mes yeux comme un voile
Ici la flamme tisonne
Dehors l’automne frissonne

Je suis accable, fatigue, il fait nuit
Je retrouve un chateau de tendresse
Mon cœur, mon amie, ma nouvelle jeunesse
Enroulee dans tes reves jolis

J’ai vu deux millions d’etoiles
Devant mes yeux comme un voile
Ici la flamme tisonne
Dehors l’automne frissonne

Tu ouvres les yeux, tu me donnes la main
Et au fond de ta nuit tu m’accueilles
Je dors, dans ma tete le silence resonne
Bonne nuit mon amour, a demain

Solo

J’ai vu deux millions d’etoiles
Devant mes yeux comme un voile
Dehors l’automne frissonne
Ici la flamme tisonne

ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF MEANING OF FRENCH LYRICS

TWO MILLION STARS

The rain, the ice, your absence weary me
The road home drags on
The night overcomes me and this night exhausts me
I close the door without a sound

I saw two million stars
Before my eyes like a veil
Here the fire “embers”
Outside fall shivers

I am overwhelmed, tired, it is night
I return to a castle of tenderness
My heart, my friend, my renewed youth
Rolled up in your lovely dreams

I saw two million stars
Before my eyes like a veil
Here the fire “embers”
Outside fall shivers

You open your eyes, you give me your hand
And in the depth of your night you greet me
I sleep, in my head the silence resounds
Goodnight my love, till tomorrow

Solo

I saw two million stars
Before my eyes like a veil
Outside fall shivers
Here the fire “embers”
