Once in a life
We lived in a sanctuary
A song could get us free
Slept behind the altar
Only the singer saw

Now it is gone, years on
Times we took alone
Stealing an hour, buying a night
It`s hard on the telephone
Love outside the law
Jai tant reve do toi

Is it gone, this year
Is the song still in your ear
Were we only high
Just the wine
Only the times

When we`re old
How will the story be told
Windswept smoke used by time
Waiting for the bus
Will that be us?

Do you recall my friend
We never thought we`d ever fall
When the salesman came to call
Selling our soul to buy
Sometimes it ain`t no deal at all
Jai tant reve do toi

    General CommentWell, I tried using an online translator to try and figure out what "jai tant reve do toi" means and the best i can figure is something like so many dreams I've shared with you.
    I think the theme of the song is the question, "were things really that good back then or does the passing of time somehow make it seem so?" like wine getting sweeter with age.maybe things haven't been that great lately and the singer has been reminiscing about the good old days.
