Pour Un Baiser


Sung by Jose Carreras

Lyrics by George Doncieux
Music by Francesco Paolo Tosti
English Translation by Evelyn Chih-Yih Chan

Pour un baiser sur ta peau parfumée,
[In exchange] for a kiss on your scented skin,
pour un baiser dans l’or de tes cheveux
for a kiss amidst the gold of your hair,
reçois mon âme toute, ô bien-aimée!
accept my whole soul, oh beloved!
Tu comblerais l’infini de mes voeux…
You would fill the infinity of my wishes…
Par un baiser!
with a kiss!

Pour un baiser distillé dans tes lèvres,
For a pure kiss in your lips,
profond, tenace et lent comme un adieu,
deep, tenacious and slow like an adieu,
souffrir le mal d’amour, et de ses fiévres brûler,
to suffer love-sickness and to burn with its fever[s],
languir et mourir peu à peu…
to languish and to die, little by little…
dans un baiser!
in a kiss!
