A l'envers
Cette terre -
Il pleut sur Vienne
La vie est belle.

A force de mourir,
Je n'ai pas su te dire
Que j'ai envie de vivre
Donner l'envie de vivre.

A force de courir,
De perdre l'équilibre,
Moi j'ai envie de vivre
Donner l'envie de vivre.

La force des rapides
Des vents qui se déchirent,
Me donnent l'envie de vivre
Donner l'envie de vivre.

A force d'étincelles
Que la nature est belle,
Moi j'ai envie de vivre
Et de mourir sans chaînes.

Impalpable
Cette flamme...
La vie est belle
Quand on aime.

    How upside-down -- a beautiful inversion. It's like saying "true that" instead
    Is this world of "that is true". it's "upside down this world" instead of
    "this world is upside down" just to give more weight to
    the situation.

    Although it rains over Vienna
    Life is beautiful.


    Because of death -- because of the force, of the violence of death
    I don't have to tell you
    That I crave to live
    Giving others the crave to live.

    By running, -- by the strength you get from running,
    Stumbling, -- from losing your balance
    I crave to live
    Giving others the crave to live

    The power of the fast
    Winds which get torn apart
    Give me the crave to live
    Giving others the crave to live

    By the power of all that sparkles
    Due to the beauty of nature,
    I crave to live
    And to die unconstrained -- to die without chains, unbound


    Intangible -- again, same kind of inversion as the one from the beginning
    This flame
    Life is beautiful
    When you love -- or when you love it, when you love life
