DREAM

Couplet 1
Tu me prends dans tes bras
Mais je ne t’appartiens pas;
Tu m’emmènes avec toi,
Suis-je faîte pour ça ? 
On se ment pour se faire plaisir.
On se cache derrière nos sourires.
Quand me montreras-tu ton vrai visage ? 
Celui qui ne change pas malgré l’âge.
Pont
I want to fall in your arms like it was before.
I want to fall in your arms like it was before.
Refrain
But I’m just a dream
Oh no, I’m just a dream.
And I’m just a dream
Oh no, I’m just a dream
For you
For you
Couplet 2
Tous nos moments d’amours 
Ne sont plus que mirages.
Nos souvenirs s’entassent 
Pleins de joies pleins d’orages.
On se ment pour se faire plaisir.
On se cache derrière nos sourires.
Quand me montreras-tu ton vrai visage ? 
Celui qui ne change pas malgré l’âge.
Pont
I want to fall in your arms like it was before.
I want to fall in your arms like it was before.
Refrain (x2)
But I’m just a dream
Oh no, I’m just a dream.
And I’m just a dream
Oh no, I’m just a dream
For you
For you
(Romane, Saint-André, Île de La Réunion, 2016)


WHO YOU ARE

Verse 1
It’s six in the morning
You are sitting on the bed
Oh, You sigh and you’re thinking
« I will do it until when ? »
I keep asking you
« If it wasn’t for money ?
What would you do ?
Who would you be ? 
Then you sigh again
And you look at the sky.
You pinch your mouth and shake your head. 
Verse 2
Why can’t you see I try to help you go and move on.
I’m like a hippie for you,
Don’t even dare say I’m dumb.
Why do you deny who you are ? (who you are)
Who you are (who you are) 
Verse 3
Your inner is burning 
From a cold flame that hurts and shreds.
Oh, You’re hiding your yearnings,
Will you do it ’till the end ?
I keep asking you,
If it wasn’t about me, 
What would you do ? 
Who would you be ? 
Then you sigh again
And you look at the sky.
You pinch your mouth and shake your head.

DANCE

Verse 1
Turn off the light
And close the door.
I can’t close my eyes 
‘Cause I want you more. 
Bridge 1
Tonight ( Oh Oh, Oh Oh )
Yeah tonight ( Oh Oh,  Hmm )
Bridge 2
You tell me goodnight, I feel sad.
You hold me and I stay calm but I realize
Bridge 1
That tonight ( Oh Oh, Oh Oh )
Yeah tonight ( Oh Oh,  Hmm )
Chorus
I just wanna dance dance dance dance dance dance,
Let me feel your love now,
I don’t wanna be alone, no. 
I just wanna dance dance dance dance dance dance,
Wanna feel like it’s not over, 
I don’t wanna be alone, no. 
Chorus
I just wanna dance dance dance dance dance dance,
Let me feel your love now,
I don’t wanna be alone, no. 
I just wanna dance dance dance dance dance dance.
Let me feel your love now,
I don’t wanna be alone, no.

Ti Baba (English Translation)
Verse
You are in my arms
I was waiting for that moment
You went out to say “Yé Aa Aa Éé”
I was waiting for that moment.
Chorus
You,
I was only waiting for you !
(Romane, Saint-André, Reunion Island, 2015)

Dream (English Translation)
Verse 1
You take me in your arms
But I don’t belong to you;
You take me with you,
Am I done for that ?
We lie each other to have fun.
We hide behind our smiles.
When will you show me your true face ?
The one who does not change despite age.
Bridge
I want to fall in your arms like it was before.
I want to fall in your arms like it was before.
Chorus
But I’m just a dream
Oh no, I’m just a dream.
And I’m just a dream
Oh no, I’m just a dream
For you
For you
Verse 2
All our love moments
They are nothing but mirages.
Our memories pile up
Full of joy full of thunderstorms.
We lie each other to have fun.
We hide behind our smiles.
When will you show me your true face ?
The one who does not change despite age.
Bridge
I want to fall in your arms like it was before.
I want to fall in your arms like it was before.
Chorus (x2)
But I’m just a dream
Oh no, I’m just a dream.
And I’m just a dream
Oh no, I’m just a dream
For you
For you
