  • Shaun from Warrington, United KingdomHauntingly beautiful.
  • Michael from Bradford, EnglandThe English lyric concerns a woman's first experience - but not the French. The French lyric is about a woman deeply in love (a forbidden love) but who fears that it will not last (Et je me demande si cet amour aura un lendemain
    = I wonder if this love will have a tomorrow).
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandA beautiful song about a woman's first sexual experience.
