    Default Francois Feldman - Slave (French to English translation need help)

    Sur les pavés, dans la poussière,
    Les yeux brûlés par la lumière,
    Vous me parlez de votre guerre, fière.

    Sous votre robe glisse une lame
    Mais je vous aime comme une femme.
    C'est la révolte qui enflamme l'âme.

    Vous, sous le volcan qui se délave,
    Vous regardez couler des larmes de lave,
    Le sang des braves
    Et moi je me souviens quand j'étais slave.

    Varsovie Sud-Américaine,
    Il y a des chants qui me reviennent
    Comme un souvenir dans les veines, qui traîne.

    Dans le maquis, sans maquillage,
    La guérilla, ce soir, fait rage.
    Vous lui donnez votre visage grave.

    Vous, sous le volcan qui se délave,
    Vous regarder couler les larmes de lave,
    Le sang des braves
    Et moi je me souviens quand j'étais slave.

    Des terres gelées qui glacent mon cœur
    Jusqu'au brasier de vos ardeurs,
    La violence n'a pas de couleur. J'ai peur.

    Rebelle et belle de toutes vos forces,
    Vous êtes fragile dessous l'écorce,
    Message d'amour comme une entorse, une entorse.

    Vous, sous le volcan qui se délave,
    Vous regardez couler des larmes de lave,
    Le sang des braves
    Et moi je me souviens quand j'étais slave.

    François Feldman - Slav .

    On cobblestones , in dust ,
    My eyes burnt by light
    You tell me about your war , proudly .

    Under your dress , a blade slips
    But I love you as a woman .
    It's the revolt that sets fire to the soul .

    You , under the volcano that puts out ,
    You watch tears of lava flow ,
    The blood of braves
    & Me , I remember when I was a Slav .

    South American Warsaw ,
    There are songs that reminds me
    Like a memory in the veins , wandering .

    In the maquis , without make-up ,
    The guerilla warfare , tonight , is rife .
    You give it your grave face .

    You , under the volcano that puts out ,
    You watch tears of lava flow ,
    The blood of braves
    & Me , I remember when I was a Slav .

    Frozen earths freezing my heart
    Up till the inferno of your ardour ,
    Violence has no colour . I'm afraid .

    Rebel & beautiful with all your might ,
    You are fragile under the skin ,
    Love message as a sprain , a sprain .

    You , under the volcano that puts out ,
    You watch tears of lava flow ,
    The blood of braves
    & Me , I remember when I was a Slav .
    Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth "You owe me."
    Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky.
    - Hafiz
