    Back to English, this song is beautiful! Much better than the plain old English vers IMO.
    Does Damon sing in French at the end with the girl (Francoise, I think she was called)? If he does, then even more reason to admire him.
    Mind you, I never needed that much of an excuse in the first place.

    Anyway, it's about a failing lationship\ that - somehow - pulls through.

    Tous ces bals masqués (si peu d'amour)
    Du mauvais cinéma (et tant de haine) =
    All these masked balls (So little love)
    Of bad cinema (And... so much(?) .... hate).

    These aren't actual masked balls, but rather, a metaphor for both people in the relationship hiding their true feelings under a flimsy disguise. I guess the line 'Du mauvais cinéma' is in there because the writer (Damon or otherwise) thinks that the situation is like that in a bad movie.

    I'll do a full translation later. I have coursework due in TOMORROW and it is imperative I get on with it!
