Lyrics of J'ai cherché

J’ai cherché un sens à mon existence
J’y ai laissé mon innocence
J’ai fini le cœur sans défense

J’ai cherché l’amour et la reconnaissance
J’ai payé le prix du silence
Je me blesse et je recommence

Tu m’as comme donné l’envie d’être moi
Donné un sens à mes pourquoi
Tu as tué la peur qui dormait là
Qui dormait là dans mes bras

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking, looking for you
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking, looking for you
Like the melody of my song

J’ai cherché un sens, un point de repère
Partagé en deux hémisphères
Comme une erreur de l’univers

J’ai jeté tellement de bouteille à la mer
J’ai bu tant de liqueurs amères
Que j’en ai les lèvres de pierre

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking, looking for you
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking, looking for you
Like the melody of my song

Au gré de nos blessures
Et de nos désinvoltures
C’est quand on n’y croit plus du tout
Qu’on trouve un paradis perdu en nous
Oh, you, you, you, you

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking, looking for you
Like the melody of my song
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking, looking, looking for you
Like the melody of my song
Like the melody of my song

You
You’re the one that’s making me strong
I’ll be looking, looking, looking for you
Give me your love with my song
Give me your love with my song

You
