"1, 2, 3" as written by and Leonard/madara Borisoff....
Un, deux, trois
Y en a un de trop
C’est pas toi c’est l’autre

Assis en face un soir
Beau comme un étranger
On a échangé un regard
Et maintenant je veux t’échanger

Un, deux, trois
C’était mieux à deux
Les yeux dans les yeux

Mais pas deux sans trois
Je veux vivre sans toi
Ou bien tout se trouble

Je croise son double au détour des rues
Quand je suis dans tes bras
Je ne vois plus que lui

Assis en face un soir
Beau comme un étranger
On a échangé un regard
Et maintenant je veux t’échanger

Assis en face un soir
Beau comme un étranger
On a échangé un regard
Et je veux t’échanger

Je veux t’échanger

Un, deux, trois
Mon soleil c’était toi
Je suis perdue

Trois, deux, un
C’est trois fois mieux toute seule
Sans compte à régler
Et puis de deux perdus
Dix de retrouvés

Dix de retrouvés

    General Comment1, 2, 3
    There is one too many
    It's not you, it's the other

    We sat opposite one evening
    beautiful like a stranger
    We exchanges regards
    And now I want to exchange you

    1, 2, 3
    It's better as two
    Eyes within eyes

    But two without three
    I want to live without you
    Or all is disturbed

    I passed his twin in the strees
    When I am in your in your arms
    I see nothing but him

    We sat opposite one evening
    beautiful like a stranger
    We exchanges regards
    And now I want to exchange you

    We sat opposite one evening
    beautiful like a stranger
    We exchanges regards
    And now I want to exchange you

    I want to echange you

    1, 2, 3,
    My sun, it was you
    I am lost

    3, 2, 1
    It's three times better than alone
    Without settling accounts
    And then two losses
    Ten found

    Ten found

    General Commenti love this song. the french language is a great playground for words. camille is great at using rhyming words with totally different meaning and connecting them. but for an american it can become quite a tongue twister to differentiate between toi and trois every other verse haha.

    General Commentthe last line is slang for "there's more fish in the sea"
    "Un de perdu, dix de retrouves"

    Song MeaningI think the singer of this song is having trouble deciding how many lovers to have. First she describes a tiring threesome, then her dissatisfaction with her partner, before she finally settles on herself. I think the orchestral climax accompanying her countdown "3, 2, 1" is symbolic of a physical climax that she has given herself (think lying on a bed...)
