lifeblood: songs: lyrics: j'aurais voulu

i would have wanted to go there
but it was complicated
it's no big deal
it's only that my time has passed

like an old bomb from the war
or the peaceful shell at the sea
don't touch the memories of my season
after all this time there is no reason to do it

a long time ago we walked in a field of wheat
in the belgian countryside
and there we found a bomb, very peaceful
don't poke it with a stick
don't poke it with a stick

and a little later we took a trip to the sea
where i filled your ear
with promises secret and salty
and the shell heard and told all
and the shell heard and told all
