  • Lyrics: Tout de même (All th Same - Translation follows) Je suis comme le vent, et chaud et froid, Que tu sentes couler les changements. Je tourbillonne, je divague; Pourtant je suis toujours présent. Calme, comme un souffle des fantômes des Temps Anciens. Jusqu’à ce que le Destin me prenne par la main, Par la pluie soulagé (je m’enfuis!); Je suis le vent. Je suis un papillon, Et puis en te passant, tu me regardes, au fond. Pénétrant, un miroir qui reflète tout ce que je suis. Ayant donc tout compris: de mes élans ravie, Je t’émeus d’un soupir; je suis ton papillon. Nous sommes des fleuves: Voyageurs, hors du temps passant. Coulant constamment, seuls nos chemins, S’en allant dans un éclair diamantin. Soudain, du bruit La lumière, puis un regard. Ayant fait connaissance, la preuve: Plus qu’un seul fleuve. Séparés par l’Océan, On se rejoigne, partie de l’Unisson. Jusqu'à jamais, on est unis, oui, unis; On est unis. TRANSLATION by Kari Tieger: All the Same I am like the wind, both warm and cool, to let you feel the changes flow. Swirling, drifting, yet ever meant to be around. Still, as a whisper of the ghosts of long ago. Until fate takes my hand, and lulls me with the rain. Then sends me on my way, I am the wind. I'm like a butterfly. And, as I flutter by, you gaze into my eyes. Deep, as through a lens glass that reflects all that I am. And understanding then, I fill you with my joys, and move you with a sigh, for I'm a butterfly. III We are like the rivers. Timeless travelers, e’er changing to the last. Weaving our separate paths, and moving on so fast, moving on so very fast. A sound breaks through! The light; and then a moment for a glance. And, after meeting, we begin to flow the same. As oceans away, we join encompassed in the whole, until the end of time. And we are one, yes, we are one. We are one. Music by Kari Tieger Lyrics by Ollie Brennan I am like the wind, both warm and cool, to let you feel the changes flow. Swirling, drifting, yet ever meant to be around.
