My Aix (Music Benoît Menut)

August 2020

Lyrics

Walking down Mirabeau street

Singing and taping a beat

I saw a man lying there

Homeless without a care.

Shabby clothes no friends or any kin

Hair floating in the Rotonde fountain

What about a rendez-vous

I would love to see you.

He, then, got up and ran away

Where to meet, he never did say.

All alone in the city

Night lit up by constellations

Hoping for those lost sensations

And my voice and all its echoes

Shimmering like water flows.

J’ai pleuré toute ma jouvence

Aux fontaines d’Aix-en-Provence

Sans jamais voir l’heure

De place d’Albertas

En place des Cardeurs.

The next day when David woke

Dreams of me, I wish he ‘d spoke

We were there at the café

Almond pastries served on a tray.

King René stood tall in stone

Protecting us, we’re not alone

But my souvenir left me there

On the streets or anywhere.

All alone in the city

A dream, a fantasy

Vagabond oh mon amour!

Night lit up by constellations

Hoping for those lost sensations

And my voice and all its echoes

Shimmering like water flows

J’ai pleuré toute ma jouvence

Aux fontaines d’Aix-en-Provence

Sans jamais voir l’heure

De place d’Albertas

En place des Cardeurs.
