    Default Dracula: Entre L'Amour et Mort - all tracks & tracklist

    All translations (and errors) are my own. See separate postings for other tracks.

    Translation is not always literal -user 'Snezhika' noted the changes/errors so with their agreement, I've added their translations after mine /.... and in italics throughout. Sometimes words in parenthesis indicate a deeper inference that is not always easy to translate. On occasion I've chosen to use older ways of speech for Dracula, I did so to indicate that he'd been around for centuries; sorry if it causes a bit of confusion for some unfamiliar with it. French original, then follows my English version:

    After the introduction by the Narrator, explaining the cruelty of the warrior Prince of Wallachia, and how the King of Hungary gave his daughter to the Prince in marriage - how Dracula's heart was entirely bewitched by her mysterious beauty, Elhemina sings a snatch of a traditional wedding song: 'The Brier Bush' I believe -

    The words are Ukrainian I think - [thanks to user 'Sesin' for translating it for me]

    Цвіте терен, цвіте терен, а цвіт опадає
    Хто з любовю не знається, той горя не знає
    Цвіте терен, цвіте терен, а цвіт опадає
    Цвіте терен, цвіте терен, а цвіт опадає

    Blackthorn is blooming, blackthorn is blooming, and flowers are withering
    The one who doesn't know love doesn't know grief
    Blackthorn is blooming, blackthorn is blooming, and flowers are withering
    Blackthorn is blooming, blackthorn is blooming, and flowers are withering.......

    Then begins -

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1:5: Cruelle Et Tendre Mina
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Dracula:

    Que le ciel s'ouvre et qu'il me donne
    Ma raison d'etre sur la Terre
    Qu'il me donne et qu'il pardonne
    Au guerrier d'avoir fait la guerre
    Que le ciel s'ouvre et qu'il m'envoie
    Celle a que j'ai dédié ma vie
    Pour qu'elle aime enfin Dracula
    Et qu'elle se couche dans mon lit

    Elhemina:
    Prince ne parle pas au ciel
    Ce n'est pas ta voix qu'il entend
    Lui qui sur ma bouche de miel
    A déposé le gout du sang

    Duo :
    Amour de ma vie je m'abandonne
    Entierement a nos prières
    Que le ciel s'ouvre et nous pardonne
    D'avoir jeté l'amour aux fers

    Dracula :
    Elhemina que le silence
    Recouvre tes paroles
    Que notre règne commence
    Ailleurs qu'au pays du sheol

    Aussi puissant que tous les dieux
    Je sais ce que je dois savoir
    Et je sais tout ce que je veux
    Je suis le prince aux mille pouvoirs

    Elhemina :
    Femme promise a votre puissance
    Mon prince je vous aime déjà -
    Depuis le jour de ma naissance
    J'étais destinée a vos bras

    Dracula :
    Alors que brillent les étoiles
    Et dis-moi que nous serons heureux

    Elhemina :
    Je te le jure, mais le mal
    Deja s'élève entre nous deux

    Dracula :
    Que dis-tu la Elhemina
    On croirait entendre une folle
    Aucun mur ne séparera
    La poésie de la parole

    Elhemina :
    Je porte en moi un lourd secret
    Je suis la reine d'un empire
    Qui ne vivra jamais en paix
    Et qui vous mènera au pire

    Duo :
    Amour de ma vie je m'abandonne
    Entierement a nos prieres
    Que le ciel s'ouvre et nous pardonne

    Elhemina :
    Deja je vois l'éternité
    Où vous entrez dans la légende
    Seigneur mon maitre bien aime
    Deja je suis cruelle et tendre

    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    1: 5. Cruel and Tender Mina
    -----------------------------------------------------------------[/B]
    Note: I have changed this in places, hopefully keeping the meaning intact. The phrase 'reason d'etre' has been adopted in English. The phrase le 'que ciel s'ouvre' - Let heaven open - is a poetic appeal to receive the forgiveness and grace from God.
    ** can be rendered more colloquially - 'That's crazy talk'.
    It is clear that Dracula and Elhemina are not always referring to the same thing, while Dracula speaks of heaven and sanction he believes it has given him as a warrior Prince, Elhemina refers to darker things......Elhemina is a vampire, and once her song is over, she bites Dracula and infects him and the Nation of Wallachia with her dread disease.....

    Dracula:
    Heaven has opened and given me /Let heaven open and give me
    My reason d'etre on earth
    It gives, and it forgives /Let it give, and let it forgive
    this warrior for having made the war
    For heaven has opened and sent me /Let heaven open and send me
    A cause to which I can dedicate my life /That [woman] to whom I dedicated my life
    For she loves Dracula at last, /Let her love Dracula at last,
    And lays down upon my bed. /And let her lay down upon my bed

    Elhemina:
    Prince, do not speak to Heaven
    That is not the secret voice you hear /It is not your voice he hears
    But he who has left upon my honey lips
    The taste of blood.

    Duet:
    Love of my life, I abandon myself
    Entirely to our prayers;
    Let heaven open and forgive us
    For casting our love into hell [hellfire]

    Dracula:
    Elhemina may the silence
    Conceal your words,
    Let our reign begin
    Beyond the land of the dead.

    As powerful as all the gods /[Aussi : likewise, also i.e: 'Also as']
    At last I know what I must know / I know all that I should to know
    And I know what it is I desire, / I know all that I want to know
    I am the Prince with a thousand powers

    Elhemina:
    Betrothed to you, my powerful Prince
    I already love you -
    Since the day of my birth,
    I was destined for your arms.

    Dracula:
    Then let the stars shine
    To tell me we will be happy / Tell me we will be happy

    Ehemina:
    I swear to you we will be,
    but already an evil rises between us.

    Dracula:
    What are you saying Elhemina,
    You speak as one gone mad,
    Not even walls can separate us,
    From the poetry of our oath

    Elhemina:
    I carry within me a heavy secret
    I am the Queen of an empire
    Which will never live in peace,
    And will lead to your destruction

    Duet:
    Love of my life, I abandon myself
    Entirely to our prayers
    Let heaven open and forgive us.

    Elhemina:
    Already I see eternity
    Where you enter into legend,
    Sire, Master, my only love
    Already I am cruel and tender

    Default Dracula: Between Love & Death

    Notes: Decided to reinstate verse 2 line 3 - my alternative was different - 'In my soul there grows not green shoot' - for those who cannot get 'Little Shop of Horrors' out of their mind when thinking of carnivorous plants !
    'Pris' - literally 'taken' in the sense of 'taken ill'. I've used 'torn' as it implies greater violence and pain emblematic of the character, but it could also be more literally translated as 'caught between'. In English at least, there is a very subtle difference between the two: 'caught between' makes Dracula more the victim of the situation, 'torn' implies he has a choice and is not just the puppet of Fate. For me this song sees Dracula agonising over choice - hence my use of 'torn'. Depends how you see the character as to which you prefer.

    ------------------------------------------------------
    1:3: Entre L'amour & la Mort
    ------------------------------------------------------

    Dracula :

    A quoi me sert de vivre encore
    Sous mes paupières le sang est lourd
    Je suis un loup qui se dévore
    Pris entre la mort et l'amour

    A quoi me sert d'avoir un corps
    Qui nest qu'une prison pour mon coeur
    Devenu plante carnivore
    Je suis un ange prédateur

    Moi qui ne vois jamais le jour
    A quoi me sert de vivre encore
    Pris entre l'amour et la mort
    Mais qui me portera secours

    Dans cet univers sans pitié
    Ou tout bientôt sera brûle

    Je meurs, je meurs a tout moment
    Qu'il me faut vivre loin de toi
    Et moi qui voulait des enfants
    Je suis le dernier Dracula

    Mais je me vengerai du monde
    Et tant pis pour les innocents
    Je serai le torrent qui gronde la nuit
    Jusqu'a la fin des temps

    Mon âme est un oiseau qui pleure
    Milles morsures pour un baiser
    Dracula coupable d'aimer
    Me reviendras-tu rien qu'une heure ?

    Toi qui ne m'as jamais quitte
    Ou préférés-tu que je meurs ?

    Je vous prédis que l'avenir
    N'est déjà plus qu'un champ de ruine
    Un grand soleil qui se déchire
    Sur des forets qu'on assassine

    J'y vois des oiseaux de fers blancs
    Chevauches par des hommes fous
    Criant le nom de Dieu
    Avant de mettre leurs frères a genoux

    Je vois un océan de sang
    J'entends ce qu'entendent les sourds
    Quand ils entendent crier le vent
    A quoi me sert de vivre encore?
    Parmi les cendres éternelles

    Pris entre l'amour et la mort
    Pris entre l'amour et la mort...

    -----------------------------------------
    1: 3: Between Love and Death
    ------------------------------------------

    Note : Alternative lines:
    *in my soul grows no green shoot

    What use is it that I still live
    When in my mind there is only blood, [lit: behind my eyes there is only blood]
    I am an all devouring wolf /Self devouring wolf
    Torn between love and death.

    What use have I for this body now,
    It's just a prison for my heart
    A carnivorous plant*
    I am a predatory angel

    I who never sees the light of day.
    What use is it that I still live
    Torn between Love and Death
    Which one of them will help me now, Who will help me now

    In a universe which has no pity -
    That soon will be burned away. \in which everything will soon be burned away

    I die, I die every moment
    That I am forced to live apart from you,
    I who wanted children of my own, yet
    I am the last Son of the Dragon. [*see note in running order]

    But I will be avenged upon the world, /But I will take my vengence upon the world
    So much worse it will be for the innocent,
    When I thunder in the night / I will be the thunder that rumbles through the night
    until the end of time.

    My soul is a bird who cries,
    A thousand bites for just one kiss
    Dracula: guilty of loving,
    Return to me for just one hour -
    You who has never left me,
    Or would you prefer I die?

    Already I see that the future,
    Is nothing but desolation. [lit: a field of ruin]
    Beneath a Sun of burning tears, [lit 'a great sun which tares
    the destruction of the Earth. [' and kills the forests beneath.']

    I see great iron birds that fly,
    Madmen are their riders,
    Who cry out in the name of God,
    And force their brothers to their knees.

    I see an ocean of blood,
    I hear what the deaf hear
    When they hear the wind screaming.

    Oh what use is it for me to live
    Eternally amidst the ashes,

    Torn between Love and Death
    Torn between Love and Death

    Default Dracula: 2:1 Act II into & 2:2 Urgence/Crisis

    ---------------------------------------------------
    2: 1 ACT II
    ----------------------------------------------------

    (voix hors champs/voice off) Ad vit-am aeter-nam.

    Dracula perçoit le parfum de son âme soeur et Mina entend l’écho d’une voix qui résonne de son corps jusqu’à son âme...

    Dracula perceives the scent [lit: perfume] of its soul mate and Mina hears the echo of a voice which resounds within her body and soul...

    ---------------------------------------------------
    2: 2 Urgence
    ----------------------------------------------------

    Urgence
    Partout dans le monde
    Le diable danse
    Devant les grands glaciers qui fondent

    Urgence
    La Terre va craquer
    Dans tous les sens
    Comment faire pour la protéger

    Le futur est-il sans espoir ?
    La science est-elle devenue folle ?
    Un jour pourrons nous voir
    Un monde sans guerre ni pâti ?

    Et toi qui es si loin de moi
    Trop loin pour m'entendre t'aimer
    M'entendre respirer
    Toi qui es peut-être en danger

    Urgence
    La mort est sur nos têtes
    Les grandes puissances
    On mis le feu à la planète

    Urgence
    L'enfer est dans le ciel
    Étrange alliance
    Les anges ont déposé leurs ailes

    Et toi qui est si loin de moi
    Trop loin pour m'entendre t'aimer
    M'entendre respirer
    Toi qui es peut-être en danger

    Que dirons-nous à nos enfants
    Quand ils voudront savoir comment
    Nous avons tout fait pour détruire
    Leur avenir sur Terre

    Que faire
    Que faire
    Que faire

    ---------------------------------------
    2:2 Urgency/Crisis
    ---------------------------------------

    Urgence means 'emergency' it can be left as urgency but the word can also be translated as 'crisis'

    Crisis -
    Everywhere in the world
    The devil dances
    Before huge glaciers that melt

    Crisis -
    The Earth will crack
    In all directions
    What to do to save it

    Is the future hopeless?
    Did Science go mad?
    One day to see ourselves
    In a world without war nor suffering

    And you who is too far from me
    Too far to hear my love
    To hear me breathe
    Perhaps you are in danger too

    Crisis -
    Death is upon our heads
    And great powers
    Set the planet on fire

    Crisis -
    Hell is in the sky
    Strange alliance,
    The angels lay away their wings

    And you who is too far from me
    Too far to hear my love
    To hear me breathe
    Perhaps you are in danger too

    What will we say to our children
    When they want to know how
    We did everything to destroy
    Their future on earth

    What to do
    What to do
    What to do

    Default Dracula: Mina

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    1:20 Mina
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    [Thanks to 'Snezhicka' for adding some corrections to this]:

    J'ai peur de ne plus dire non
    J'ai peur de nous trahir
    Et de céder aux tentations
    Aux plaisirs aux désirs
    J'ai chaud j'ai froid tout en dedans

    J'ai peur d'effacer le temps
    J'ai peur d'oublier nos prières
    Et de renier nos serments
    Amour dis-moi que faire
    Comment te vivre en attendant

    Mina où es-tu? Mina, parle-moi
    J'ai peur de perdre la raison
    J'ai si peur d'oublier ton nom

    J'ai peur des absences de mon coeur
    J'ai peur du poids de chaque pierre
    Et de traverser la frontière
    De t'oublier avant
    D'avoir vu naître le printemps

    Mina où es-tu? Mina, reviens-moi
    J'ai peur de perdre la raison
    J'ai si peur d'oublier ton nom

    Mina où es-tu? Mina, aime moi
    Ouvre tes voiles a l'horizon
    Ramène-moi vers la raison

    Elhemina reviens
    Séparé l'archange du martyr
    Elhemina reviens
    Garde pour moi l'avenir

    Mina ou es-tu Mina rêve-moi
    J'ai peur de perdre la raison
    J'ai si peur d'oublier ton nom

    Mina où es-tu? Mina, aime-moi
    J'ai peur de perdre la raison
    J'ai si peur d'oublier ton nom


    -------------------------------------------
    1:20 Mina
    -------------------------------------------


    I am afraid I can't say no [ie resist]
    I am afraid to betray us
    And to yield to temptations
    With the pleasure, with the desire,
    I am hot, I am cold inside.

    I am afraid to erase time,
    I am afraid to forget our prayers
    And to disavow our oaths.
    Love tell me how
    to live waiting for you.

    Mina, where are you? Mina speak to me
    I am afraid I'll lose my mind,
    I'm afraid I'll forget your name

    I fear the emptiness of my heart
    I fear the weight of every stone
    And to cross the frontier
    To forget you
    Before Spring comes.


    Mina, where are you? Mina, come back to me,
    I am afraid I'll lose my mind,
    I'm afraid I'll forget your name

    Mina where are you, Mina show me your love,
    Open the veil of the horizon / Open your sails on the horizon
    Guide me [back] towards sanity.

    Elhemina, come back to me
    Separate the archangel from the martyr
    Elhemina come back to me
    Guard [safeguard] the future for me.

    Mina where are you,
    Mina come to me in [my] dreams,
    I'm afraid, I'll lose my mind,
    I'm so afraid I'll forget your name

    Mina where are you? Mina, show me your love,
    I 'm afraid I'll lose my mind,
    I'm so afraid I'll forget your name

    Default Dracula: 1: 21 An Army of Shadows & 1:22 Dialogue: The Pact

    --------------------------------------------------
    1:21: L'Armée Des Ombres
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Renfield:
    Que savez-vous de la douleur
    Et des tourments qui me tourmentent
    Que savez-vous de ce qui hante
    Celui qui vit la mort au coeur

    L'armée des ombres s'avance
    Qu'elle me possède et qu'elle me donne
    La beauté de la violence
    Et qu'elle me baise comme personne

    L'armée des ombres s'avance
    Et qu'elle réveille les eaux qui dorment
    Au plus profond de ma souffrance
    Couchée prés d'un diable a trois cornes

    Ce qui nous manque nous déchire
    Ce que l'on possède nous fait mal
    Comment vivre avec le désir
    Qui fait de l'homme un animal

    Que l'armée des ombres se presse
    Au secours de ma déchéance
    Dans la luxure et dans l'ivresse
    Et qu'elle me rende l'innocence

    O ma tempête - qui se déchaîne
    Pour qu'en moi le calme revienne

    L'armée des ombres s'avance
    Qu'elle me possède et qu'elle me donne
    La beauté de la violence
    Et qu'elle me baise comme personne

    Que l'armée des ombres s'avance
    Et qu'elle réveille les eaux qui dorment
    Au plus profond de ma souffrance
    Couchée prés d'un diable a trois cornes

    Dracula:
    Ami quelle est cette douleur
    Qui semble déchirer ton âme
    Et te ronger de l'intérieur
    Quel est ce feu que tu réclames

    Renfield :
    Ne m'appelle pas ton ami
    Nous n'avons pas les mêmes rêves
    Nos fleuves n'ont pas le mémé lit
    Et nos arbres la mémé sève

    Dracula :
    Que sais-tu de porter le poids
    De la douleur en permanence
    Que sais-tu de porter la croix
    De l'amour en désespérance

    Renfield :
    Et toi que sais-tu d'être fou
    Et que sais-tu du mal d'amour
    Qui me fait marcher a genoux
    Sans Dieu sans ami ni secours

    Dracula :
    Je sais que nous sommes pareils
    A deux châteaux au bord du vide
    Je suis un aigle dont les ailes
    Ne veulent plus être le guide

    Duo :
    Et nous brûlerons solitaires
    Comme brûlent tous les amants
    Cloues aux portes de l'enfer
    Les yeux crevés par un diamant

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    1: 22: Dialogue- Dracula et Renfield - Le Pacte
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dracula: Renfield, avez-vous déjà connu l’amour et sa passion?
    Renfield: J’en ai seulement rêvé!
    Dracula: Est seule dont vous rêvez? Seriez-vous prêt à braver le feu de l’enfer pour son baiser?
    Renfield: Oui! Oui!
    Dracula: Sérier-vous prêt à damner votre âme pour une seule de ses caresses?
    Renfield: Je suis prêt à tout pour ma Lucy!
    Dracula: Tout?
    Renfield: Tout!
    Dracula: Je cherche une femme. Une femme que j’aime depuis toujours. Et je sens sa présence. Je sens sa présence par-delà la distance et le temps! Je la sens! Je la sens à travers toi!
    Renfield: Mais Lucy c’est mon amour à moi!
    Dracula: Mon pauvre ami! Mais elle ne t’a jamais appartenu! Jamais! Je te propose un pacte, Renfield. Amène-moi mon Elhemina, et ne t’inquiète plus pour ta Lucy. Je la ferai tienne.
    Renfield: Oh oui!
    Dracula: Et seule pour l’éternité!


    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    1: 21 Army of Shadows
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    note: ['ombre' can mean 'shadow or 'shade' - an unseen presence or force]
    Renfield is a drug addict, and in his song refers to his addiction as if she were a woman, possessing him to his descruction.
    * this line implies that death will return him to a state of innocence.....
    ** Although not the translation, kept mine in as it reminds me of images of Christopher Lee as Dracula, he was frequently depicted as having gleaming eyes; like menacing black diamonds.....

    Renfield:
    What do you know of the pain
    And the agonies which torment me
    What do you know of that which haunts me
    / You who live with a dead heart

    An army of shades advances,
    Let her possess me and give me
    The beauty of [her] violence,
    And let her kiss me alone. [only me]

    Let an army of shadows advance,
    Let her awaken the dormant waters
    With the deepest of my suffering.
    Sleeping close, a three horned devil /Lying close, a three horned devil

    What we miss tares at us
    What we have hurts us
    How to live with the desire,
    That turns man into an animal.

    Still the army of shadows presses on
    Aided by my immorality /To help my fall
    In the lust and intoxication
    Let her render (make) me innocent [again]

    Oh a storm bursts out
    So that a calm may return

    An army of shades advance,
    Let her possess me and give me
    The beauty of violence,
    And let her kiss me alone.

    Let an army of shadows advance
    Let her awaken the dormant waters
    With the deepest of my suffering.
    Sleeping close, a three horned devil /Laying close

    Dracula:
    Friend, what is this pain
    That seems to tear at your soul
    And knaw at you from within
    What is this fire you claim? [to posess]

    Renfield:
    Do not call me your friend.
    We do not have the same dreams,
    Our rivers do not have the same bed
    Or our trees the same sap.

    Dracula:
    Know that you carry the weight / What do you know of carrying the weight of
    Of pain forever.
    Know that you carry the cross /What do you know of carrying the cross
    Of love in vain.

    Renfield:
    And you who also knows this madness
    Understands this malady of love
    Which makes me crawl on my knees
    Without God, without a friend or aid.

    Dracula:
    I know that we are similar,
    Two castles on the edge of the void.
    I am an eagle whose wings
    Do not want to be the guide any more.

    Duet
    And we will burn in solitude
    As all lovers do,
    Nailed in a box beside the doors of hell
    Eyes shining like diamonds.** /With eyes gouged with a diamond

    Dracula: Of whom do you dream? Would you be ready to defy the fires of hell for their kiss?

    Duo :
    Dis-moi qui es-tu
    Toi qui me plaît déjà
    Toi qui ne m'es pas inconnu
    Dis-moi qui es-tu
    Toi qui me plaît déjà
    Mais que je ne reconnais pas
    Qui es-tu
    Qui es-tu
    Qui es-tu
    Qui es-tu

    Dracula :
    Dis que cherches-tu
    En cet endroit de perdition
    Ou le vice a tué la vertu
    Quelle impression quelle émotion
    Que viens-tu faire dans ces ruelles
    Dans cette bauge abandonnée
    Au désordre et à la misère
    D'ou viens-tu étrange beauté

    Lucy :
    Bel étrange étranger
    Toi-même que viens-tu chercher
    Quelle espérance quelle pitié
    Dis-moi qui viens-tu retrouver

    Dracula :
    Peut-être un souvenir
    Un cygne noir qui me rappelle
    Une âme qui m'a vu souffrir
    Pourtant, je ne désire qu'elle

    Duo :
    Dis-moi qui es-tu
    Toi qui me plaît déjà
    Toi qui ne mes pas inconnu

    Qui es-tu
    Qui es-tu

    Lucy :
    Je suis un souvenir
    Qui se perd dans le temps

    Dracula :
    Et moi je suis le verbe écrire
    Qui ne s'écrit que par le sang
    Tes larmes sont les miennes
    Je les bois depuis si longtemps
    Que maintenant elles m'appartiennent
    Et que ma bouche les attend

    Duo :
    Dis-moi qui es-tu
    Toi qui me plaît déjà
    Toi qui ne mes pas inconnu
    Dis-moi qui es-tu
    Toi qui me plaît déjà

    Duo :

    1: 23 Strange Foreigner
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Note: black swan* until the late 17th century 'black swan' was a widespread metaphor for something which couldn't possibly exist. Until black swans were found in abundance in the New World and later in Australia, it was believed swans were always white.


    Duet:
    Tell me who are you
    You whom I already desire [lit: 'You whom I like already': can mean 'am suited to']
    You are not unknown to me
    Tell me who you are
    You whom I already desire
    But that I do not recognise
    Who are you
    Who are you
    Who are you
    Who are you

    Dracula:
    Say what it is you seek
    In this place of perdition
    Where vice destroys virtue /where vice destroyed virtue
    What impressions, what emotions
    Made you take this alley (path)
    In this abandoned wallow
    With disorder and misery,
    Where do you come from - strange beauty?

    Lucy:
    Beautiful strange foreigner
    It is yourself you seek /what is it you seek, yourself?
    What hope, what pity,
    /Tell me, who are you looking for

    Dracula:
    Perhaps a memory
    A black swan * which reminds me of [recalls to me]
    A soul I saw suffering, / a soul that I saw suffering
    Nevertheless, I desire she. / Nevertheless, it is she alone that I desire

    Duet:
    Tell me who you are
    You whom I already desire
    You are not unknown to me
    Tell me who you are
    You whom I desire already
    But that I do not recognise
    Who are you
    Who are you
    Who are you
    Who are you

    Lucy:
    I am a memory
    Lost in time /That vanishes in time

    Dracula:
    And I am the word to write /and I am the verb to write
    which can only be written in blood /which can only be written in blood
    Your tears are mine
    I have drunk them for so long
    That they belong to me
    And my mouth awaits them

    Duet:
    Tell me who you are
    You whom I desire already
    You are not unknown to me
    Tell me who you are
    You whom I desire already
    But that I do not recognise
    Who are you
    Who are you
    Who are you
    Who are you

    Lucy:
    Stranger, who are you.

    Dracula:
    I am one who will suffer
    In the void, in the unknown

    Lucy:
    And I am one who will follow

    Dracula: Have no fear. Pain for a moment. Pleasure - for eternity!

    Duet:
    Tell me who you are
    You whom I already desire
    You are not unknown to me
    Tell me who you are
    You whom I desire already
    But that I do not recognise

    Lucy:
    You who kills me.

    Default Dracula: Entre L'Amour et Mort : Reign

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2: 15 Prélude Règne - Prelude to Reign [Ukrainian]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Dracula::
    Пізнав любов, пізнав любов, пізнай же й смерть!

    Ельміна! Ельміна! Я люблю тебе навіки! Я люблю тебе навіки, моя Ельміна! Любов моя! Любов моя!

    Mina: Хто з любов'ю не знається, Той горя не знає.

    Johnathan: Міна!


    Dracula:
    You've known love! You've known love. Now you will know death!

    Elhemina! Elhemina! I love you forever! I love you forever, my Elhemina! My Love! My love!

    Mina: (sings) - He who does not know love, does not know grief....

    Johnathan: Mina!


    --------------------------------------------------------
    2:16 : Règne
    -------------------------------------------------------
    [Note: 'ma souveraine' could be translated as 'my queen', but I chose not to change it as sovereign still works and is gender neutral in English.
    'Mon soleil dechire'- literally 'my burning/torn sun' - used older word 'riven' : torn asunder.
    Thanks to 'Snezhinka' for correcting the Ukrainian and adding to the text.

    Dracula :
    Quand je ne serai plus
    Qu’une étrange légende
    Un demi-dieu vaincu
    Dans son château de cendre

    Règne

    Règne sur la beauté
    De toutes choses humaines
    Devient la vérité
    De celui que tu aimes

    Règne

    Ramène la tendresse
    Dans l’âme des humains
    Mon amour je te laisse
    La Terre entre les mains

    Règne mon soleil déchiré
    Ma princesse bien aimée
    Avant que tout s’éteigne
    Ma souveraine

    Règne sur l’or du temps
    Les collines et les plaines
    Protégé l’océan
    Ou dorment les sirènes

    Règne

    Protégé le futur
    Épargne-nous la haine
    Apaise les blessures
    De ce siècle qui saigne

    Règne mon soleil déchiré
    Ma princesse bien aimée
    Avant que tout s’éteigne
    Ma souveraine

    Règne mon soleil déchiré
    Ma princesse bien aimée
    Que les volcans te craignent
    Ma souveraine

    Sur l’orchestre du temps
    Sur les ongles du vent
    Protégé le printemps
    De l’hiver qui l’attend

    Règne sur l’au-delà
    Et règne sur ma peine
    O règne encore sur moi
    Ma princesse ma souveraine

    Règne

    Quand je ne serai plus
    Qu’une étrange légende
    Un demi-dieu vaincu
    Dans son château de cendre

    Que le diable aura dit
    C’est lui que j’ai maudit

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2:16: Reign
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dracula:
    When I am nothing but /When I become nothing more than
    a strange legend
    A vanquished demi-god /Only a vanquished demi-god
    In his castle of ash

    Reign

    Reign upon the beauty
    Of all things human
    Become the truth
    For the one you love

    Reign

    Bring back the compassion /tenderness
    In the souls of Mankind
    My love, I bequeath to you
    The Earth between these hands

    Reign my riven sun,
    My princess, my only love,
    Before everything is snuffed out /Before everything fades away
    My sovereign

    Reign on the gold of time
    Upon the hills and the plains
    Protect the ocean
    Where the sirens sleep

    Reign

    Protect the future
    Keep us from hatred
    Soothe the wounds
    Of this bloody century / of this bleeding century

    Reign my riven sun,
    My princess, my only love
    Before everything is snuffed out /Before everything fades away
    My sovereign

    Reign my riven sun,
    My princess, my only love
    Let the volcanoes fear you
    My sovereign

    Upon the sands of time
    Upon the nails of the wind
    Protect the Spring
    From the Winter which awaits it

    Reign upon the beyond
    And reign upon my sorrow
    Oh reign still upon me
    My princess, my sovereign

    Reign

    When I am nothing but
    a strange legend
    a vanquished demi-god
    In his castle of ash

    Then the devil will declare -
    It is he whom I cursed

    Reign

    Default 1:9 Five Centuries & 1:10 Ce Que je vois/What I see

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    1:9 5 siècles - Five Centuries
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Grand Lui:
    Cinq siècles viennent de passer. La contrée de Vallachia n’a pas beaucoup changé malgré son air moderne. Dracula jura de retrouver son âme-soeur mais sa croisade ne fait que des victimes. Des citoyens qui disparaissent, des cadavres qui se réveillent, un virus qui se transmet par morsure. La tragédie a réuni cinq personnages: une militante, un journaliste, son photographe, l’homme de science Van Helsing et sa fille Lucy.

    Narrator:
    Five centuries have just passed. The region of Wallachia did not change much in spite of its modern air. All the while Dracula sought his soul mate, but his crusade only created victims. Citizens disappeared, the dead rose again - a virus transmitted by bite. As a consequence, the tragedy brought together five characters:
    an activist, a journalist, his photographer, a man of science - Van Helsing, and his daughter, Lucy.

    -------------------------------------
    1:10 : Ce Que Je Vois
    --------------------------------------

    1: 10 : What I Saw
    ----------------------------------

    Note: 'j'entends' 'I hear' - I changed it to 'I see', as both mean the same thing: i.e. what I perceive/understand.


    Johnathan:
    What I saw and what I now see
    I must write it /I owe it to myself to write
    To warn you
    The worst is yet to come

    Renfield:
    What I saw and what I now see
    Looks like a shipwreck,
    An immense carnage
    Here are the images

    Mina:
    What I saw and what I now see
    Abandoned people
    Who look for a way
    With their heads in their hands

    Lucy:
    What I saw and what I now see
    Fills me with sorrow
    For all men who hunger
    Their pain has no end.

    All:
    What I saw and what I now see
    What I see around me
    Pains me at every step
    All about only signs of misfortune

    What I saw and what I now see
    What I see round me
    Pains me at every step
    How to find happiness again

    Misfortune - Pain - Misfortune - Horror

    Lucy:
    What I saw and what I now see
    Who would not grieve
    That such pain exists
    Oh how to tell it

    Van Helsing:
    What I saw and what I now see,
    A huge boat heaving. [lit: a large drunk boat]
    Burning all the books,
    God deliver us! /God help us!

    Renfield:
    What I saw and what I now see
    Abandoned people
    Who look for a way
    With their heads in their hands

    Van Helsing:
    What I saw and what I now see
    Fills me with sorrow
    For all men who hunger
    Their pain has no end.

    All:
    What I saw and what I now see
    What I see around me
    Pains me with every step
    All about only signs of misfortune

    What I saw and what I now see
    What I see round me
    Pains me with every step
    How to find happiness again

    Mina:
    Misfortune

    Renfield:
    Pain.

    Lucy:
    Misfortune

    Van Helsing:
    Horror

    All:
    What I saw and what I now see

    Johnathan:
    A rainbow without sky ('le bleu' figurative for sky)

    All:
    What I saw and what I now see

    Renfield:
    Blinding our eyes

    All:
    What I saw and what I now see

    Mina:
    Oh how to find faith (again)

    All
    What I saw and what I now see

    Van Helsing:
    To say once upon a time -

    All
    What I saw and what I now see

    Lucy:
    An Earth filled with happy people

    All:
    Misfortune - pain - misfortune - horror - misfortune

    All:
    What I saw and what I now see
    What I see around me
    Pains me at every step,
    All about only signs of misfortune

    What I saw and what I now see
    What I see around me
    Pains me at every step
    How to find happiness again

    All about only signs of misfortune
    How to find happiness again

    All about only signs of misfortune
    How to find happiness again

    For 6 & a half years I had a dear friend who was born, raised, & lived her whole life in Montreal Quebec Canada, & she was of French decent, & French was her first language, she learned English in school. After 6 & a half years of being dear friends (read into that, that I loved her romantically during that time) I went to Montreal this past February to be with her for Valentine's Day (Things sadly did not work out, & we are no longer on speaking terms, not of my choice, I wish we still was, it was of her choice). Dracula Entre L'Amour Et La Mort was one of her favorite musical, & thusly I out of love for her am taking great care in my English translation of it's lyrics.

    I am not saying that my lyrics are better then yours, simply that they are a different interpretation/translation that people can also choose alternatively if they wish to. So here is my translation of the above song.

    What I See
    Sung by : Jonathan, Renfield, Mina, Lucy, Van Helsing

    Original Show Title: Dracula: Entre L'amour Et la Mort
    Translated Show Title: Dracula: Between Love And Death
    Original Language: French
    Translated Language: English
    Genre: Grusical
    Book: Richard Ouzounian
    Lyrics: Roger Tabra
    Music: Simon Leclerc
    Translator: Jack Danya Kemplin
    Year: 2006


    Lyrics:

    Johnathan:
    What I saw, what I see
    I must write down here
    To warn unto you
    The worst is yet to come

    Renfield:
    What I saw, what I see
    Resembles a shipwreck
    An immense carnage
    Here is the image

    Mina:
    What I saw, what I see
    Is an orphan people
    Who seek their way
    Their heads in their hands

    Lucy:
    What I saw, what I see
    Filled me of chagrin
    Everywhere there is famine
    The pain is without end

    All:
    What I saw, what I see
    What I hear around me
    Makes me hurt with every step
    Everything's a sign of misfortune

    What I saw, what I see
    What I hear around me
    Makes me hurt with every step
    How to find happiness

    Misfortune, Pain, Misfortune, Horror, Misfortune

    Lucy:
    What I saw, what I see
    Who shall give us pity
    The pain of existence
    How to tell it

    Van Helsing:
    What I saw, what I see
    Is a great drunken ship
    Burning all our books
    May God deliver us

    Renfield:
    What I saw, what I see
    Is an orphan people
    Who seek their way
    Their heads in their hands

    Van Helsing:
    What I saw, what I see
    Filled me of chagrin
    Everywhere there is famine
    The pain is without end

    What I hear around me
    Makes me hurt with every step
    Everything's a sign of misfortune

    Vive la differance!
    I think the differences are fascinating. (Sorry things didn't work out...)

    I know what I've posted is far from polished -
    My motivation here was to post a fair version in English so that
    those with no French could get more out of the musical.

    For me, translation of lyrics in particular, is a balance between, meaning,
    the music and the rhythms of language, (which for me is a kind of music).
    The art comes in knowing what alternatives are appropriate to serve the whole,
    and skill is in finding a way to change the minimum to serve the poetry
    of the original, the music - (and in the case of musical theatre,
    the characters and the drama too.)

    Translation at it's best is an art and a skill seamelessly combined;
    and the best translations are those where the effort is so well hidden, it doesn't
    seem translated at all. I'm far off that, but I'm working on it and enjoying
    the challenge immensely!

    Default Dracula: 1:12 dialogue & 1:13 Droit de Savoir

    --------------------------------------------------------------
    1:12: Dialogue Van-Helsing et Lucy
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Van Helsing:
    N’y va pas, Lucy, c’est dangereux.
    Lucy: pourquoi?
    Van Helsing: Toi aussi, toi aussi tu veux refaire le monde.
    Lucy: Oui. Oui. Et vous qu'’avez-vous changé? Toujours seul dans votre quête!
    Van Helsing: Je ne suis pas seul. Nous ne sommes pas seuls. Dieu est avec nous.
    Lucy: Dieu?!
    Van Helsing: A quoi bon? A quoi bon discuter?

    1:12:
    Van Helsing: Don't go there Lucy, it's dangerous
    Lucy: Why?
    Van Helsing: You too. So, you want to change the world too?
    Lucy: Yes. Yes. And you, what have you ever changed? Always alone in your quest!
    Van Helsing: I am not alone. We are not alone. God is with us.
    Lucy: God!?
    Van Helsing: What's the use. What's the point of discussing it..

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    1:13. Droit De Savoir -(Lucy & Van Helsing)
    --------------------------------------------------------

    Lucy:
    Mon père je vous en prie répondez-moi
    Pourquoi ne me laissez-vous pas
    Vivre ma vie comme je l'entends
    Ici est maintenant
    Je ne suis plus une petite fille
    Qui ne connaît rien de la vie
    Je sais les horreurs de la guerre
    Et de la misère
    Mon père de quels dangers me parlez-vous
    Il y en a tant autour de nous
    Je ne veux pas être comme ceux
    Qui portent un bandeau sur les yeux

    J'ai le droit de voir
    Le droit de savoir

    J'ai le droit de voir
    Le droit de savoir
    Le nom de chaque rue
    Que vous avez connu

    J'ai le droit de voir
    Le rouge et le noir
    Le meilleur et le pire
    J'ai le droit de choisir

    Je suis de liberté
    a jamais libérée
    Laissez-moi partir
    Je veux découvrir
    L'espace et le temps
    Mon siècle m'attend
    J'ai vingt ans

    Van Helsing:
    Ma fille le monde n'est pas ce que tu vois
    La vie est un oiseau de proie

    Lucy:
    Mon père que voulez-vous me dire
    Que cherchez-vous a m'interdire

    Je veux ouvrir les fenêtres
    De mon âme et tout combattre
    Vivre ma vie comme je l'entends
    Des maintenant

    Choisir l'église que je veux
    Laissez-moi brûler de mon feu

    Van Helsing:
    Ma fille pourquoi me parles-tu ainsi
    N'aimes-tu pas ce que je suis

    Lucy:
    Mon père je vous aime comme vous été
    Mais je n'en ferai qu'à ma tête

    Voyez la nuit ouvre ses portes
    Je dois marcher vers elle
    Et mémé si c'est fou qu'importe
    J'ai le droit d'espérer le ciel

    ---------------------------------------------------
    1:13 The Right to Know
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Note: 'rouge et noir' is a gambling card game - where winning and loosing depends on the turn of a card - when Lucy refers to the Black and the Red she may be referring to fate & life - thus in English the line might be 'game-of-life'.

    Lucy:
    Father, won't you please explain to me
    Why it is you do not let me
    Live my life as I want to
    Here and now
    I am not your little girl
    Who knows nothing of life -
    I know the horrors of the war
    And of misery.

    Father you speak to me of the dangers
    There are so many around us
    I do not want to be like those
    who are blindfolded by their fear -

    I have the right to see
    the right to know

    I have the right to see
    the right to know
    the name of each street
    That you knew

    I have the right to see
    the game of life [lit; red & the black]
    the best and the worst
    I have the right to choose

    Freedom is mine to have,
    And still I am not free
    So let me go
    I want to discover
    space and time
    My life is ahead
    I am only twenty.

    Van Helsing:
    Daughter the world is not what you see
    life is a savage bird of prey [lit: life is a bird of prey]

    Lucy:
    Father what do you want to tell me -
    What do you want to forbid me? (from doing - i.e. what are you protecting me from?)

    I want to open the windows
    Of my soul - embrace everything
    To live my life as I wish
    Here and now

    To choose the church I want
    Let me burn with my own fire

    Van Helsing:
    My daughter why do you speak to me this way
    perhaps do you not love me anymore?

    Lucy:
    Father I love you as you are
    But my heart will not rule my head.

    The night opens it's doors
    I must go towards it
    And even if it's mad what matters is
    I have the right to hope for heaven

    I have some wonderful news, I have posted a youtube video that I made with hardcoded English subtitles of my translation of What I Saw What I See / Ce Que Je Vois http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zi4wV0bXJ_s

    It is a slightly improved version of what I had posted above, I hope everyone likes it

    Default Dracula : Avance

    ---------------------------------------
    1:19 Avance
    ---------------------------------------

    Notes:

    'Avance' can mean 'advance' - to go forward, but it can also mean advances ie seduction. In this song the word carries both meanings at the same time, as before being interrupted by Dracula, the three Vampireseses attempt to seduce Johnathan to enter their dark and seductive existence.

    Asanbosam is a West African vampire (particularly Ghana) Jaracara - Brazilian vampire. Penanggalan - vampire of Malay Peninsula. Kali Siva - Kali Hindu goddess, Shiva, her consort.
    The association Kali and her husband Shiva with vampires, is I think, only done for the purpose of verse. While in Kali's most famous pose as Daksinakali, she is shown as drunk on the blood of her enemies, for many Hindus as the goddess of Time and destruction/transformation, she is also the mother of the Universe. While she is often seen as bloody and violent, she is the slayer of demons rather than a demonic figure herself.
    * Charmes - charms/ delights not just the promise sexual fulfillment, but euphemism for their physical charms/erotica. Similar to saying 'Cover your nakedness'.

    Vampiresses:
    Avance Avance Avance

    Vers celles dont les bouches
    On soif de ta semence
    Avance avance et touche
    Le corps des trois déesses
    À genoux devant toi
    Imagine ton s-xe
    Dans nous trois à la fois

    Asambosam Jaracara
    Penanggalen Kali Siva
    Que ton sabre se dresse
    Et qu'il tranche le fruit
    Du corps des trois déesses
    Au soleil de minuit

    Dénude ton corps
    Découvre la puissance
    De la bouche qui mord
    Dans le fruit défendu
    Offre ton âme au Maître
    Entre dans l'inconnu
    Viens te reconnaître

    Asanbosam Jaracara
    Penanggalan Kali Siva
    Les femmes sont offertes
    Leurs lèvres sont ouvertes
    Succombe au charme des voix
    Des sirènes de Vetala

    Cède à la tentation
    Qui brûle dans tes veines
    Déchire la prison
    De ta peau qui te gène
    Rivières de jouissance
    Et rivières de sang
    Célébrez la naissance
    De l'amant tout puissant

    Asanbosam Jaracara
    Penanggalan Kali Siva
    Que ton sabre se dresse
    Et qu'il tranche le fruit
    Du corps des trois déesses
    Au soleil de minuit

    Avance
    Avance
    Avance

    Asanbosam Jaracara
    Penanggalan Kali Siva

    Asanbosam Jaracara
    Penanggalan Kali Siva

    Asanbosam Jaracara
    Penanggalan Kali Siva
    Les femmes sont offertes
    Leurs lèvres sont ouvertes
    Succombe au charme des voix
    Des sirènes de Vetala

    Abandonne ton âme
    Renie ton existence
    Et nous serons ta femme

    Abandonne ton âme
    Renie ton existence
    Et nous serons ta femme

    Vampiresses:
    Advance Advance Advance

    Towards those who's mouths
    Are thirsty of your seed
    Advance advance and touch
    The body of three goddesses
    on their knees in front of you
    Imagine your sex
    In us three at the same time

    Asambosam Jaracara
    Penanggalen Kali Siva
    That your sword stands
    And that it [he] cuts the fruit
    Of the body of three goddesses
    Of the midnight sun (or sun at midnight)

    Strip your body naked
    Discover the power
    Of the mouth which bites
    Into the forbidden fruit
    Give your soul to the Master
    Enter the unknown
    Come to know yourself

    Asanbosam Jaracara
    Penanggalan Kali Siva
    The women are given
    Their lips are open
    Succumb to the charm of the voices
    Of the Sirens of Vetala

    Give in to the temptation
    Which burns in your veins
    Tear the prison
    Of your skin to the bone / Of your skin that hinders you
    Let rivers of semen
    And rivers of blood
    Celebrate the birth
    Of the all-powerful lover

    Asanbosam Jaracara
    Penanggalan Kali Siva
    That your sword stands
    And that it cuts the fruit
    Of the body of three goddesses
    In the sun at midnight (or midnight-sun)

    Advance

    Asanbosam Jaracara
    Penanggalan Kali Siva
    The women are given
    Their lips are open
    Succumb to the charm of the voices
    Of the Sirens of Vetala

    Abandon your soul
    Renounce your existence
    And we will be your wife

    Abandon your soul
    Renounce your existence
    And we will be your wife

    SyrianRani, as you can see in my video I have created a subtitle file which contains that one song, as for the other songs & lines in it, I have not created a subtitle file with those yet because I am still working on my translation, but Bluejacket & I have both translated out many of the songs, & Bluejacket of course is posting his/her (not sure of Bluejacket's gender, never asked) lyrics here, & I plan on doing that once I feel that my lyrics are of a quality worth posting, & once I have done that I do plan on adding the lyrics to my sub file, & so eventually I may have a sub file. You, Bluejacket & anyone is free to use my lyrics if you guys create a sub file (please give me a copy of that file too if you do ) & I defanitly take Blejacket's lyrics into consideration whenever I am doing up mine, so we are all helping out each other .

    I have done my own lyrics for Cruel & Tender Mina, Reign, & Between The Love & The Death, but I feel that they are not finished yet.

    The next one I will finish is Cruel & Tender Mina. Here is some lines from my lyrics for that:

    The sky opened up & it gave down onto me,
    She who I would live for,
    & who would mean everything to me.
    For God has rewarded,
    The Worrier for the war,
    & made her finally love Dracula,
    & has placed her in my bed.

    (& later)

    Love of my life,
    I devote myself,
    To you entirely,
    Within my prayers,
    & I pray that,
    God may forgive us,
    For taking our love,
    & Casting it in the fire.

    I know they are not exactly what the French is saying, but I like them & I think they get the basic idea across
