"Lost" as written by Bertrand Lucien Cantat, Gay Serge Marius Pierre Teyssot, Denis Guy Marc Barthe and Jean-paul Roy....
Pourras-tu le faire I'm lost
Pourras-tu le dire I'm lost
Tu dois tout essayer I'm lost
Tu dois revenir I'm lost

Tu dois voir plus loin I'm lost
Tu dois revenir I'm lost
Egaré en chemin I'm lost
Tu verras le pire I'm lost

Pour trouver le sud I'm lost
Sans perdre le nord I'm lost
Après les certitudes I'm lost
Au-delà des bords I'm lost

I'm lost but I'm not stranded yet
I'm lost but I'm not stranded yet

Dans les yeux des femmes I'm lost
Dans la marie-jeanne I'm lost
Dans la techno-cité I'm lost
Pour manipulés I'm lost

Grand combat de chairs I'm lost
Colline enflammée I'm lost
Dans l’ombre ou la lumière I'm lost
Pôle halluciné I'm lost

Pour courir ventre à terre I'm lost
Brouillard et fumée I'm lost
Consommer consumer I'm lost
Recracher de l’air I'm lost

Dans le dérisoire I'm lost
Dans les accessoires I'm lost
Dans le feu des possibles I'm lost
Au cœur de la cible I'm lost

Dans la paranoïa I'm lost
Dans la schizophrénia I'm lost
Un maniacopéra I'm lost
Pharmacopérave I'm lost

I'm lost but I'm not stranded yet
I'm lost but I'm not stranded yet

Entre les dérapages
Entre les lignes d’orages
Entre temps entre nous
Et entre chien et loup
Au maximum du voltage
A peine est passé le message
Au fil du rasoir

Encore une fois c’est la vie qui s’entête
Acharnée au-delà des images qu’on reflète
Chacal, charogne, chaman, sachem
Magie noire ou blanche inscrite à la sacem

Des poumons d’or
Belphégor
Ici, maintenant, à la vie, à la mort
N’oublie pas ton sourire pour ce soir si tu sors
Un jury t’attend n’injurie pas le sort

Entre les dérapages
Entre les lignes d’orages
Entre temps entre nous
Et entre chien et loup
Au maximum du voltage
A peine est passé le message
Au fil du rasoir

Dans les corridors I'm lost
Sur les baies vitrées I'm lost
Des insectes écrasés I'm lost
Qui cherchaient de l’or I'm lost

Dans les ministères I'm lost
Dans les monastères I'm lost
Dans les avalanches I'm lost
Au bout de la planche I'm lost

Des combats d’autorité I'm lost
Des conflits d’intérêts I'm lost
Des types ignifugés I'm lost
Veulent ma fusée I'm lost

Des désenchanteurs I'm lost
Un train à quelle heure I'm lost
Des pirates des corsaires I'm lost
Sans aucun repaire I'm lost

Tu dois voir plus loin I'm lost
Tu dois revenir I'm lost
Tu dois tout essayer I'm lost
Tu dois devenir I'm lost

I'm lost but I'm not stranded yet
I'm lost but I'm not stranded yet

    General Commenteven though i only get the "i'm lost but i'm not stranded yet..." part, i'm dying for it. this is music, you know. it's a language by itself. you don't need to understand all the words to like a song. and this song is really great....

    General CommentI've taken French lessons for about 5 years now, so I understand some of the content (at least the "shallow" parts; I may not get the deeper meaning with this song, if you understand what I'm trying to say), though I agree with you - the passion lies in the music.
    I have to thank my French teacher for introducing me to Noir Désir with this song after we'd read a text titled "Une tragédie moderne" about what happened with Bertrand and Marie.

    General CommentI love this song. Noir Desir is - I should say was - an excellent music group, remarkable for the lyrics as well as for the music, which is rare. What happened is tragic but I prefer not to think about it so that I can still appreciate the music. I mean, some people think the man's disgusting, so the music's disgusting, too. That's not my case...
    It's a good thing that your french teacher did introduce you to Noir Désir ; I have the feeling that french teachers too often focus on "classical" singers like Edith Piaf or Jacques Brel (who were excellent but have nothing to do with what young people listen to...). It's a kind of cliché...

    General CommentI agree with all the comments. This is music first, words included. I don't say it doesn't mean something but the songwriting is pretty poetic (and cryptic) and based on rhymes and rythm. You understand some things but it's up to everybody. They're considered a political group in France, though their music isn't directly explicit, some songs critizice global economy and capitalism & its excesses. But mainly, the lyrics are very litterary. In this song the accumulation of many nouns make sens with the chorus. You feel overwhelmed and "lost". Hope i was clear, because even if french speaking persons could translate this song (i'm french), the meaning would be up to what it conveys to you. I can translate but it's long and gets complicated at the end. Anyway, I'll try if anyone asks.

    General CommentI really love this song...it contains an universal meaning. What i love about their songs is the ability to speak to people's soul without explicit words.
    Everyone of us felt lost once in life. The important thing is to remember its own landmarks (le Nord) and never forget to smile (n'oublie pas ton sourire pour ce soir, si tu sors)
