Fou et tellement évident
Que je ne trouve plus de sens
A ce jeu excitant
Si bon mais si lassant
Tu aimes me manipuler
Et j'aime en faire autant
Nous sommes tous deux victimes
De ce doux jeu d'amants

Je ferai l'effort, je te connais par cœur
Il suffit que je t'ignore
Pour que tu reviennes en pleurs
Je m'occupe de toi
Tu repars c'est ça
Toujours le même schéma
Et j'anticipe à chaque fois

Fou et tellement évident
Que je ne trouve plus de sens
A ce jeu excitant
Si bon mais si lassant
Tu aimes me manipuler
Et j'aime en faire autant
Nous sommes tous deux victimes
De ce doux jeu d'amants

Passion, émotion
Et correction d'équations
J'agite la solution
Mais j'ai toujours la même sensation
C'est tellement évident
Que je ne trouve plus de sens
À ce jeux excitant
Si bon mais si lassant

Je ne veux pas d'un amour sans faille
Trop parfait tu ne m'intéresses pas
Folle de toi surtout quand tu pars
Fou de moi j'y vais de ce pas

Je ne veux pas d'un amour sans faille
Trop parfait tu ne m'intéresses pas
Folle de toi surtout quand tu pars
Fou de moi j'y vais de ce pas

Fou et tellement évident
Que je ne trouve plus de sens
A ce jeu excitant
Si bon mais si lassant
Tu aimes me manipuler
Et j'aime en faire autant
Nous sommes tous deux victimes
De ce doux jeu d'amants

Je me perds parfois
Souvent c'est bien fait
Et tu caches ta joie
Parce que tu m'as eu
Comme une proie bête et gentille
Qui ne tire pas de leçons
Du piège grossier et facile
D'un charmant garçon

Mais c'est vraiment trop facile
Dès que tu souris tu me fascines
Comme un aimant sur un fil de fer
Tendue et habile
Mais c'est vraiment trop facile,
C'est ma pomme qui te fascine
Je tourne le dos pour partir
Tu sais qu'elle n'est pas acide.

Fou et tellement évident
Que je ne trouve plus de sens
A ce jeu excitant
Si bon mais si lassant
Tu aimes me manipuler
Et j'aime en faire autant
Nous sommes tous deux victimes
De ce doux jeu d'amants

    General CommentThis kinda seems like a French version of Lady Gaga's "Lovegame"...except this one debuted in 2007 (Lady Gaga's album was in 2008)...I like this one better

    here's a translation I got out of it


    Refrain:
    Crazy and so obvious
    that I don't find sense
    In this exciting game
    So good but so tiring
    You like to manipulate me
    I like to do the same
    We're two victims
    In this sweet love game


    I'd make the effort, I know you by heart
    I just have to ignore you
    For you to come back crying
    I'm with you,
    You leave again, that's that
    Always the same pattern
    And I look forward to every hope (it might actually be chaque fois, which is "every time" instead of foi, which is "faith")


    Refrain:
    Crazy and so obvious
    that I don't find sense
    In this exciting game
    So good but so tiring
    You like to manipulate me
    I like to do the same
    We're two victims
    In this sweet love game


    Passion, emotion
    And corrections to equations
    I shake the solution
    But I still have the same feeling
    It's so obvious
    That I don't find much sense
    In this love game
    So good and tiring


    x2
    I don't want a flawless love
    Too perfect, you do not interest me
    Crazy for you especially when you go
    Crazy for me, from this step I'm going there (this line I'm not too sure about)


    Refrain:
    Crazy and so obvious
    that I don't find sense
    In this exciting game
    So good but so tiring
    You like to manipulate me
    I like to do the same
    We're two victims
    In this sweet love game


    I lose myself sometimes
    It's often well done
    And you hide your joy
    Because you've got me
    Like nice and stupid prey
    Who does not learn lessons
    From a rough and easy trap
    Of a charming boy


    But it's really too easy
    As soon as you smile you fascinate me
    Like a magnet on a wire
    Tense and clever (if "abile" is supposed to be "habile")
    But it's really too easy
    It's my fruit that fascinates you ("Pomme" literally means "apple", either she means this in a sexual way or it's is a reference to being the "apple of someone's eye)
    I turn my back to leave
    You know that it's not acidic (hurtful)


    Refrain:
    Crazy and so obvious
    that I don't find sense
    In this exciting game
    So good but so tiring
    You like to manipulate me
    I like to do the same
    We're two victims
    In this sweet love game



    The lyrics are pretty straightforward - probably more so in French, but the two people drive each other nuts and are happy in that sense, that there's an exciting game to always look forward to.

    General Commentfunkyfishfingers is right in that the title means "this game." It's basically about two people(presumably Yelle and some guy) flirting with each other.

    My InterpretationI interpreted this song as a song merely about how a majority of relationships work these days, and how the mess and chaos is what makes the relationship so thrilling, but yet can grow tiresome.

    After being with him for a while, she knew that ignoring him would get him to come to her, crying for her attention. And at the same time, he's got her spellbound by his little 'traps' that are so easy for her to fall for.


    She (like a majority of people, including myself), doesn't want a relationship to be perfect; she doesn't want everything to add up to some kind of perfect equation. She loves this 'game' that they play with each other, but even too much mess becomes more tiresome than fun.

    Also, she turns around and says during the 'break', "I turn my back to leave. You know that I won't hurt you.", that's such a perfect way to put how we may feel in relationships; we get driven to the point to leave, or we deliberately make it seem like we want to leave so that way there's a little more of a mess, but in the end, there is no malice intended towards the love-interest.

    General CommentJe comprends toute la chanson. Pourtant, je ne peux pas comprendre pourquoi à ce verse "a ce jeu excitant" il y a le verb "a", et pas le "à"; Où est le sujet du verbe avoir? Est-ce que quelqu'un français peut m'expliquer? Pardon je ne sais pas français très bien...
