Jena Lee
J'aimerais tellement
I Would Have Liked. . ./I Loved So Much*

Ce n'est qu'une larme, juste un reste du passé dont je m'éloigne, mais qui ne cesse de me hanter
Ce n'est qu'une larme, qui entaille mes pensées, je retrouve mon âme, ton regard me donne envie d'avancer


It's just a tear, just a remnant of the past I'm trying to get away from, but which won't stop haunting me.
It's just a tear which cuts into my thoughts, I find my heart again, your glances make me want to go on.


Hey ho
Laisse moi l'oublier
Laisse l'effacer
Pour mieux tout te donner


Hey ho
Let me forget,
Let me erase him
So that I can give you everything.


REFRAIN :
J'aimerais tellement te dire ce que veut mon coeur
Mais je n'ai plus les mots, non,
J'aimerais tellement te dire que je n'ai plus peur
Mais ces mots sonnent faux, non,
Je dois tout recommencer une nouvelle fois
Pardonne moi si je fait un faux pas
Tu sais j'aimerais tellement te dire ce que veux mon coeur
Mais je n'ai plus les mots non


CHORUS:
I would like to tell you what my heart wants,
But I no longer have the words, no,
I would like to tell you that I'm not afraid anymore,
But those words ring false, no,
I have to start all over again,
Excuse me if I make a mistake,
You know I would like to tell you what my heart wants,
But I no longer have the words, no.


J'ai peur de cette flamme qui avant toi m'a brûlé
Tes yeux me désarment je n'ose plus les affronter
Mes rêves se fanent, seul le temps pourras m'aider
Mais quand tu t'éloignes, j'ai finalement envie de te voir rester


I'm afraid of this flame that engulfs me in front of you,
Your eyes disarm me, I don't dare to face them again,
My dreams wither, only time can help me,
But when you go away, I always end up wanting you to stay.


Hey ho
Tu sais me parler
Tu sais m'écouter
Baby please let me
Laisse moi juste me retrouver


Hey ho
You know how to talk to me,
You know how to listen to me,
Baby please let me
Let me just find myself again.


REFRAIN

CHORUS


J'aimerais tellement donner autant que toi
Je trouverais le mots que tu attends pour toi
Je te demande, je te demande juste du temps


I would like to give you as much as you give me,
I would find the words that you're waiting for, for you,
I'm just asking you, I'm just asking you for some time.

*The title itself is a play on words. "J'aimerais tellement + verb" means "I would have liked so much to. . ." but "J'aimerais tellement" by itself can just mean "I loved ___ so much." You can see from the lyrics why that's a good double entendre :)
