Avenir by Louane Lyrics + English Translation

Just like in English, the French also have break up songs, reality shows, and young pop stars.  In addition they have they’re own reality shows like ‘The Voice: la plus belle voix.

The French pop artist Louane came to prominence in 2013 as a contestant on the french version of ‘The Voice: la plus belle voix, season 2. After scoring a four-chair turn during the ‘audition a l’aveugle’, she landed on the team of Louis Bertignac. She made it all the way to the semifinals with her delicate singing style and inspiring life story, becoming an orphan at 16, with both her parents dying – her father just 3 months prior to the competition.

You can enjoy watching her audition a l’aveugle on the show here:

 

Despite not winning,she burst onto the french pop scene with her debut album Chamber 12 in 2015 and in this post we are going to analyze the lyrics of her radio hit ‘avenir’ or ‘future’ which details the story of a cheating ex and breakup. See if you can follow along with the music.  Then use the lyrics and English translation to make sure you understood everything.

 

Avenir by Louane lyrics + English Translation

French & English

Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Yeh, Yeh, Yeh,Yeh,Yeh, Yehi

Partie loin derrière sans trop de raisons
Tu m’as laissé hier la fin de la saison
Je n’veux plus savoir
On s’est éloignés
Tu n’vas plus m’avoir
et tout est terminé

Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Yeh, Yeh, Yeh,Yeh,Yeh, Yehi

J’espère que tu vas souffrir
Et que tu vas mal dormir
Pendant ce temps j’vais écrire
Pour demain l’avenir (pour demain l’avenir)
Pour demain l’avenir (pour demain l’avenir)

Partie pour un soir
Juste lui parler
Au fond d’un couloir
Tu voulais aller
L’hypocrisie d’un soir
Les verres sont cassés
Envolés les espoirs et nos coeurs défoncés

Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Yeh, Yeh, Yeh,Yeh,Yeh, Yehi

J’espère que tu vas souffrir
Et que tu vas mal dormir
Pendant ce temps j’vais écrire
Pour demain l’avenir (pour demain l’avenir)
Pour demain l’avenir (pour demain l’avenir)

Partie seule dans la rue
Je cherche mon chemin
Je n’le trouve plus
Il me paraît bien loin
Je t’ai oublié, tu n’me fais plus rien
Et je pars voyager en pensant à demain

Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Yeh, Yeh, Yeh,Yeh,Yeh, Yehi

Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Yeh, Yeh, Yeh,Yeh,Yeh, Yehi

J’espère que tu vas souffrir
Et que tu vas mal dormir
Pendant ce temps j’vais écrire
Pour demain l’avenir (pour demain l’avenir)
Pour demain l’avenir (pour demain l’avenir)

Partie loin derrière sans trop de raisons
Tu m’as laissé hier la fin de la saison.

Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Yeh, Yeh, Yeh,Yeh,Yeh, Yehi

Left far behind without too many reasons
You left me yesterday the end of the season
I don’t know know anymore
We have moved further away
You are not going to have me any longer
and everything is finished

Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Yeh, Yeh, Yeh,Yeh,Yeh, Yehi

I hope that you are going to suffer
And that you are going to sleep poorly
During this time I am going to write
For tomorrow, the future (for tomorrow, the future)
For tomorrow, the future (for tomorrow, the future)

Went out for a night
Just to talk to him
At the end of the corridor
You wanted to go
The hypocrisy of a night
The glasses are broken
The hopes flown away and our hearts bashed

Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Yeh, Yeh, Yeh,Yeh,Yeh, Yehi

I hope that you are going to suffer
And that you are going to sleep poorly
During this time I am going to write
For tomorrow, the future (for tomorrow, the future)
For tomorrow, the future (for tomorrow, the future)

Went out alone in the street
I look for my way
Im not finding it anymore
It seems far to me
I have forgotten you, you don’t do anything for me anymore
And I leave to travel, thinking of tomorrow

Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,Yeah,Yeah, Yehi

Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Waoh, Waoh, Waohoh
Yeh, Yeh, Yeh,Yeh,Yeh, Yehi

J’espère que tu vas souffrir
Et que tu vas mal dormir
Pendant ce temps j’vais écrire
Pour demain l’avenir (pour demain l’avenir)
Pour demain l’avenir (pour demain l’avenir)

Partie loin derrière sans trop de raisons
Tu m’as laissé hier la fin de la saison.
