"Counting Stars on the Ceiling" as written by Torquil John Campbell and Christopher Allen Seligman....
Les soleils couchants
Revêtent les champs
Les canaux, la ville entière
D'hyacinthe et d'or
Le monde s'endort
Dans une chaude lumière
Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté
Luxe, calme et volupté

Took a taxi with Jean last night
It was late and it was raining
We live far away from each other
And there was no desire
I think it was more the dark night
Or some lonely feeling

When we got home, we were alone
We fell in love with that feeling
When we got home, we were alone
We fell in love with that feeling

Rain since Tuesday
Barely found my way to the shop
For the milk in the morning
And the news of the world had turned around
Then I heard you calling
Saw you turn the darkened corner
Then you were gone

When I got home, I was alone
I fell in love with that feeling
When I got home, I was alone
And I counted stars on the ceiling

When I got home, I was alone
And I fell in love with that feeling
When I got home, I was alone
And I counted stars on the ceiling
I fell in love with that feeling

When I got home, I was alone
I counted stars on the ceiling
I fell in love with that feeling
I fell in love with that feeling

    General Commentyes, the poem is called "Invitation to the Voyage", and you can find the whole thing in the original French as well as several English translations here: fleursdumal.org/poem/…

    I love how "luxe,calme et volupté" gets translated slightly differently each time. :)
