"Désert" as written by and Dorival Tostes/pinheiro Caymmi....
Oh mon amour, mon âme sœur
Je compte les jours je compte les heures
Je voudrais te dessiner dans un désert
Le désert de mon cœur

Oh mon amour, ton grain de voix
Fait mon bonheur à chaque pas
Laisse-moi te dessiner dans un désert
Le désert de mon cœur

Dans la nuit parfois, le nez à la fenêtre
Je t'attends et je sombre
Dans un désert, dans mon désert, voilà

Oh mon amour, mon cœur est lourd
Je compte les heures je compte les jours
Je voudrais te dessiner dans un désert
Le désert de mon cœur

Oh mon amour, je passe mon tour
J'ai déserté les alentours
Je te quitte, voilà c'est tout

Dans la nuit parfois, le nez à la fenêtre
J'attendais et je sombre
Jetez au vent mes tristes cendres, voilà

    General Comment"Oh my love, my soulmate
    I'm counting days, I'm counting hours
    I'd like to draw you in a desert
    The desert of my heart

    Oh my love, the sound of your voice
    makes me feel happy every step I take
    Let me draw you in a desert
    The desert of my heart

    In the night, sometimes
    My nose at the window
    I'm waiting for you, and I'm diving
    In a desert, in my desert, that's all

    Oh my love, my heart is heavy
    I'm counting hours, I'm counting days
    I'd like to draw you in a desert
    The desert of my heart

    Oh my love I give up my turn
    I've deserted the surroundingd
    I'm leaving you, that's all

    In the night sometimes, my nose at the window
    I was waiting and I'm diving
    Throw my sad ashes into the wind

    General CommentWho else thinks this song would make a great listen to while 'doing it'? Emilie's voice here, the pure essence of the French language.

    General CommentThis song makes me think to some old french songs, such as La vie en rose (Edith Piaf).
