  • Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Déployer les ailes

    In my beginning there was nothing
    So empty in the space between
    And you came in, turned the lights on
    And created what it's came to be

    Before I pluck your wings, cover me, please
    Spread your wings cover me and

    Promise this, if I die before I wake, oh
    Promise this, take a time to say your grace
    On your knees you pray for me
    Promise this, be the last to kiss my lips

    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Déployer les ailes

    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Plumerez les ailes

    Though I'm walking through the shadows
    You are with me and you comfort me
    Lay me down now, time for sleeping
    But before that would you miss on me

    Before I pluck your wings, cover me, please
    Spread your wings cover me and

    Promise this, if I die before I wake oh
    Promise this, take a time to say your grace
    On your knees you pray for me
    Promise this, be the last to kiss my lips

    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Déployer les ailes

    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Plumerez les ailes

    By a thread we're hanging on
    In the hope you don't let go
    If you ever leave me
    No, I wanna go with you

    Promise this, if I die before I wake oh
    Promise this, take a time to say your grace
    On your knees you pray for me
    Promise this be the last to kiss my lips

    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Déployer les ailes

    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Alouette uette uette
    Déployer les ailes

    Allouette, déployer les ailes
