"Pour Que L'amour Me Quitte" as written by and Camille Dalmais....
Cheveux mouillés
Bras repliés
Retrouvée fenêtre ouverte
Par la fenêtre

Pour que l'amour me quitte

En dormant j'ai rêvé
Des milles lianes

Pour que l'amour me quitte

La lumière pâle
Des murs de l'hôpital
Trop aimer c'est pas normal
Un cœur si mal

Pour que l'amour me quitte

    General Commentthis is such a good song...sad. my french isn't very good but pour que l'amour me quitte means "so that love will leave me". to me (because of my bad french it is too poetic to understand). but i kind of get the feeling her love is dying in the hospitol, and she doesnt want to feel lover for this person anymore because they are dying and it will hurt her. but there are so many things that i am just translating literally taht dont make sense.

    General Commenti didnt translate this myself, but this is what i got:

    wet hair
    folded up arms
    found open window
    by the window

    So that love will leave me

    While sleeping I dreamt
    of miles of lianas

    So that the love leaves me

    the pale light
    walls of the hospital
    too muchlove, it's not normal
    a heart so sore,
    taken down

    So that love will leave me

    [i edited a bit from my french knowledge.. i hope this helps..! =)]

    General Commentc'est la chanson la plus belle sur le fil. i think the character in the song (if it is camille herself) is describing a kind of transition in her life that surrounded an accident.
    the first stanza describes a person wet and deadened, perhaps arriving from an accident.
    the second stanza implies that this person is sleeping, or unconscious, perhaps in the hospital. because she goes on to talk about lianas in pagaye. lianas are tropical climbing trees, and pagaye is a place in burma.
    in the third stanza, she wakes up in the hospital, describing the walls.

    all awhile, she talks about love and how she is left without it. i think she has felt too much love, and thinks it abnormal, so she takes her heart down, or allows the love to leave her.

    My InterpretationI think the strength of great writing is that everybody can find it's own meaning. It doesn't need to have an only unique meaning. This is art, not an exact science. That being said, the first signinfication I saw to those lyrics was a missed suicide attempt.

    General CommentHere's my translation if anyone's interested...it's not quite literal but this is how I understand the song anyway. I feel like it's about someone after failed relationship trying to make the left over love leave her, as if it could just pass through the window by her bed. She could be depressed and sleeping all the time, without taking the time to dry her hair. It seems to me like she feels sick with love, and trapped as if in a hospital. Her dream about could be a metaphor for the relationship, the tropics being the state of paradise/happiness of good times. Just one take on it, anyway.

    fallen asleep
    hair wet
    arms folded
    found with the window open
    through the window

    to let the love leave me

    while I was sleeping I dreamed
    of thousands of lianas

    let the love leave me

    woken up
    pale light
    hospital walls
    to love too much isn't normal
    a heart so badly

    let the love leave me
