"Pourtant" as written by and Franck/chedid Monnet....
Tu demandais hier
Mon avis sur le bonheur
L'air de rien voilà que tu t'inquiètes
La paix te ferait donc peur

Je l'attise cet amour
Les brindilles volètent
Tu n'y vois que du feu
C'est sa vie secrète
Pourtant, pourtant, pourtant

Les mots sont, les mots font, les mots disent
Les mots coulent, les mots roulent sur un fil
Moi, je laisse ces microbes, ces missles
Aux bavards, aux poètes si possible
Oh, comme je t'aime quand tu t'expliques
C'est drôle mais

J'ai rangé les modes et les recettes
Incendie la boîte, mon cœur
De ce petit sacrifice me reste
Un vertage, une chaleur

Je l'attise cet amour
Les brindilles volètent
Tu n'y vois que du feu
C'est sa vie secrète
Pourtant, pourtant, pourtant

Tu sais, tu me demandais hier
Ma vision du bonheur
Eh bien, chaque jour elle est plus nette
Il ne nous fera plus peur

Je l'attise cet amour
Les brindilles volètent
Tu n'y vois que du feu
C'est sa vie secrète
Pourtant, pourtant, pourtant

    General Commentyeah, that's kind of it, but i dont think it's that the guy's with someone else...more that he's worrying about things and asking about what happiness means to her, and she's basically saying that it shouldn't frighten him or something. Here's a translation by by french friends Gwen & Amelie anyway;

    Pourtant - Nevertheless


    You asked yesterday
    My opinion of happiness
    Without looking like it now you worry
    Peace seems to frighten you

    I am firering up (teasing) this love
    The twigs flutter
    You are dazzled
    It's my secret life
    Nevertheless... Nevertheless... Nevertheless...

    The words are, the words do, the words say
    The words flow, the words roll on a string
    Me, I leave these microbes, these missiles
    For the talkative (chatterbox/gossips), for the poets if possible
    Oh... I love you so when you explain yourself
    It's funny but...

    I put the fashions and the recipes away
    Put the box on fire, my heart
    This little sacrifice stays for me
    A dizziness, a warmth (heat)

    I am firering up (teasing) this love
    The twigs flutter
    You are dazzled
    It's my secret life
    Nevertheless... Nevertheless... Nevertheless...

    You know, you asked me yesterday
    My vision of happiness
    Eh well, each day it's clearer to me
    It won't frighten us anymore

    I am firering up (teasing) this love
    The twigs flutter
    You are dazzled
    It's my secret life
    Nevertheless... Nevertheless... Nevertheless

    :)
