Seul dans le dernier wagon
Je compte, compte, compte les stations.
Sans quai, sans gare, sans illusion, c'est long.
Je pense à toi métro Madeleine
À la première fois qu'on s'est dit "je t'aime".
De la Muette à la gare de Lyon, je tourne en rond.

À qui chanter, avouer la beauté de ton nom ?
Lequel de nous deux est parti le premier ?
Lequel a dit à l'autre "je dois te quitter" ?
Lequel de nous deux est le plus heureux
D'avoir dit à l'autre "c'est ta faute" ? Adieu !

Je suis le drap qui se plie
Autour de toi, chaque nuit
Mais je t'attendrai ici, métro Mélancolie.

Lui as-tu déjà donné la beauté de ton nom ?
Lequel de nous deux est parti le premier ?
Lequel a dit à l'autre "je dois te quitter" ?
Lequel de nous deux est le plus heureux
D'avoir dit à l'autre "c'est ta faute" ? Adieu !

Lui as-tu déjà donné la beauté de ton nom ?
Lequel de nous deux est parti le premier ?
Lequel a dit à l'autre "je dois te quitter" ?
Lequel de nous deux est le plus heureux
D'avoir dit à l'autre "c'est ta faute" ? Adieu !

    MemoryAmong Adam's songs, this one stuck to my memories. Back from high school, I went outside the subway and watched boys while waiting for the bus!

    The most wary ones recognise an interpolation of the introduction of the Beatles' "You Never Give Me Your Money".

    TranslationAlone in the last wagon
    I count, count, count the stations.
    Without dock, without railway station, without illusion, it's long.
    I think of you (at the) underground station Madeleine
    At the first time we said "I love you".
    From La Muette to Gare de Lyon, I turn round in circles.

    To whom sing, avow the beauty of your name?
    Which of us both left the first?
    Which one said to the other "I must leave you"?
    Which of us both is the happiest
    For having said to the other "It's your fault? Farewell!

    I'm the sheet that folds
    Around you, every night
    But I'll wait for you here, underground Melancholy.

    Have you already given him the beauty of your name?
    Which of us both left the first?
    Which one said to the other "I must leave you"?
    Which of us both is the happiest
    For having said to the other "It's your fault? Farewell!

    Have you already given him the beauty of your name?
    Which of us both left the first?
    Which one said to the other "I must leave you"?
    Which of us both is the happiest
    For having said to the other "It's your fault? Farewell!

    FYI, Madeleine, La Muette and Gare de Lyon are 3 stations from Paris Métro.
