Francis Cabrel lyrics: Il Faudra Leur Dire Lyrics

Music and lyrics by Francis Cabrel, 1987.

My first post concerning French music is about a song from Francis Cabrel called “il faudra leur dire”, translation “It’ll be necessary to say to Them”. It is a song that we use to learn at school. I was 7 when I learned it.

If that song is about tolerance, it reminds me of my youth and I believe that most of the French people of my age (in their early thirties) had learned this song at school as well.

At each listening, my heart is full of emotion. This song brings me back to my childhood. It reminds me the innocence that we all had at this age and I remember my child dreams and my life analysis at this time.

Besides, every time I am facing adversity it is one of songs which make me go ahead and take me back to my life objectives and my dreams.

I have little memory of my childhood but this song is associated to the few souvenirs that I have and they remain engraved in my heart.

1
Si c’est vrai qu’il y a des gens qui s’aiment
Si les enfants sont tous les mêmes
Alors il faudra leur dire
C’est comme des parfums qu’on respire
Juste un regard facile à faire
Un peu plus d’amour que d’ordinaire
2
Puisqu’on vit dans la même lumière
Même s’y a des couleurs qu’ils préfèrent
Nous, on voudrait leur dire
C’est comme des parfums qu’on respire
Juste un regard facile à faire
Un peu plus d’amour que d’ordinaire

3

Juste un peu plus d’amour encore
Pour moins de larmes, pour moins de vide
Pour moins d’hiver

4
Puisqu’on vit dans le creux d’un rêve
Avant qu’ l’amour ne touche nos lèvres
Nous on voudrait leur dire

Les mots que l’on reçoit
C’est comme des parfums qu’on respire
Il faudra leur dire
Facile à faire
Un peu plus d’amour que d’ordinaire

5
Si c’est vrai qu’il y a des gens qui s’aiment
Si les enfants sont tous les mêmes
Alors il faudra leur dire les mots qu’on reçoit
C’est comme des parfums qu’on respire
Il faudra leur dire…

Facile à faire

Translation

1

If it is true that people love each other

If the children are all the same
Then it will be necessary to tell them
It’s like perfumes we breathe
Just a glance, easy to make
A little more love than usual

2

Since we live in the same light
Even if there are colours they prefer
We  would like to tell them
It’s like perfumes we breathe
Just a glance easy to make
A little more love than usual

3

Just a little more love
for less tears, for less emptiness
For less winter
4

Since we live in the hollows of a dream
Before love touch our lips
We would like to tell them
The words that we receive
It’s like  perfumes we breathe
It will be necessary to tell them
Easy to make
A little more love than usual

5
If it is true that people love each other
If the children are all the same ones
Then… it will be necessary to say to them
The words that we receive
It’s like perfumes we breathe
It will be necessary to tell them
Easy to make

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx
