Composed by Anaïs Le Marchand / Gaëtan Davoult

lyrics

Remember, we’ve shared out
Same sounds and perfumes.
In summer heat,
Under my shade,
You came to take a rest.
In winter I protected you
From squalls and storms
Into my arms.
When shadows fall down
Some candles and few glows
Shine behind your windows
Draw halos and crowns
You’ve got December flames
And I’ve got loneliness
I’m cold and I’m boring
While snow is falling

But when it’s getting dark, you’re frightened of me
And I feel so lonely…
Just like an animal

In spring days you marveled
At magic flowers I bear
But when comes the night
You shiver with fear
I’m less than ghost
Less than monster
less than beggar
Less than wanderer

But when it’s getting dark, you’re frightened of me
And I feel so lonely…
Just like an animal

I’m an old and single tree
So much sap flowed in me
But nothing wore me down
I’m still in love.
