Louise (feat. Ingrid)

Story Behind The Song

Ingrid is a long term old french friend of mine, not to say one of my best, whom I have performed with in a band back in the 80s. We lost contact for about 30 years, and now, with me returning to France, and her being an accomplished woman and mother, I wanted to send her this gift, a song where she speaks to her daughter Louise with intimacy and pride and joy and emotion and... clarity ! I also draw the esquisse of her face, used in the art cover picture. Hope you will enjoy, we made its chorus in english so it is more a universal message.

J'n'ai pas vu passer les dernières années
Remplies de bonheur, de fierté

Je t'ai vue grandir, souvent tomber
Je t'ai vue rire, t'ai vue pleurer
Pour toujours mieux te relever
Tu es ma vie, mon avenir
Loulou, trésor
Une femme en devenir
Je t'aime, je t'adore

REFRAIN: You'll be soon a woman
Yet my only child
Loulou take my hand
You make me so proud

(Je serai toujours là pour toi, oh oh oh oh)

Je te vois encore à tes premiers pas
À chaque surprise de tes premières fois

Mais tant d'étoiles me restent à baptiser
Tant de soleils couchants à aimer
À tes côtés

Seras tu là, non loin de moi
Loulou, trésor

N'oublie pas qui tu es, ni d'où tu viens !

Quand viendra le temps de t'envoler
Tu pourras, mais pas avant
Me lâcher la main

Even if you stand
Tall by my side
Baby take my hand
There's no shame to hide

(Je serai toujours là pour toi, oui pour toi)
