MessageSujet: Translations of the Songs   Jeu 20 Aoû - 15:44

At the moment I'm translating the songs into german and I'm nearly finished, but there are some words and sentences which are difficult to translate, because of their different meanings...

so maybe someone could help me a little Smile
I think I got almost every title but I really have problems with translating "Vivre à en crever" (it would be much easier for me to translate then an english translation into german Wink)

I would guess it means something like "live until you explode" or "live for dying"....something like that...i guess I understand the theme of the song but I can't put it into words confused ...

Well...it's quite hard ! Smile
I don't know how to translate "Vivre à en crever", but it's the idea that we have to die, one day, so we have to live completely...I don't know how to explain it. The two expressions that you give are quite good, I think.

I thought to that also, but it french it will be "Vivre jusqu'à la mort"...The idea isn't the same in my point of view...

Your question is so hard ! =)

yes...sometimes its really hard..because I always want to find the perfect translation Smile

but I hear the songs at the moment every day and sometimes I also start
to sing the songs Wink...und so I really wanna know and understand what
they sing...and also because I have holidays at the moment (so I have a
lot of time^^) I started to translate the songs word by word...and by
the way I learn many new words

sooo thanks for your help...because sometimes I just can't find the right translations

Wow great job ! Congrats, it's complicated to do that.
And after translating, do you notice you understood the songs well in french ? maybe, it's not the cleverest question I asked Suspect

So..voilá my translation of Tatoue moi Smile
Please don't hesitate to correct my mistakes (I guess there are a lot)...there are some parts, where I'm not really sure about how to translate them...but i hope you understand everything

(Because there doesnt exist a word for "on" in english, I translated it with "we" but I guess you can also translate it with "you")


Tattoo me

Divine,naive, dissolute
This evening I invite myself into your bed
We let the husbands sleep
While we love each other/make love
Under the sight of the nice people

I will learn your language and your accent to understand you
I will be frivolous and decadent to surprise you

Tattoo me on your breasts
Do this up to my lips
I will kiss your hands
I will do what you like

Tattoo me on your wall
A future with composing
I want to engrave all my lust
On your gilding

It goes upside down
And we are not afraid of their mean arrogance
(But this indecency!)
We go to the citizen, whistle their vine
Tease their conscience
(You pay for this offense!)

How import the laughs and the looks during my journeys? (?)
They are my wealth, my standard
They are my world

Tattoo me on your breasts
Do this up to my lips
I will kiss your hands
I will do what you like

Tattoo me on your wall
A future with composing
I want to engrave all my lust
On your gilding

Let yourself fall into my arms
Glide me under your blanket
We derive up to exaggeration
We sing for decency
The pleasure of indecency

Tattoo me on your breasts
Do this up to my lips
I will kiss your hands
I will do what you like

Tattoo me on your wall
A future with composing
I want to engrave all my lust
On your gilding

So and here are one of the most difficult ones "vivre à en crever"
altough I understand quite everything, i still struggle with the refrain
(I think if I ever get the chance to go to paris, i'm going to ask Flo how he would translate that Cool)


Live until it kills you

We leave
Without knowing
Where souvenirs/memories die
Our life passes by like a space of a sigh

Our tears
Our fears
Don’t want to say anything
We hold on to our wishes
Also yesterday
We didn’t stop cursing

If we must die
We may as well live until it kills us/so live until you explode
Hold everything back
To sacrifice everything

If we must die
On our gravestones I want to engrave
That our laughs had made fun of/fooled
Death and time

We hold on
We embrace
Life like a mistress
We devote us to burn for a caress

She will offer herself
She won’t have another chance

If we must die
We may as well live until it kills us/so live until you explode
Hold everything back
To sacrifice everything

If we must die
On our gravestones I want to engrave
That our laughs had made fun of/fooled
Death and time

We will see us again
We will see us again
There where nothing isn’t nothing anymore
We will understand
Where we come from

If we must die
We may as well live until it kills us/so live until you explode
Hold everything back
To sacrifice everything

If we must die
On our gravestones I want to engrave
That our laughs had made fun of/fooled
Death and time

French & English Version
