The birds they sang
At the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don’t dwell on what
Has passed away
Or what is yet to be
Yeah the wars they will
Be fought again
The holy dove
She will be caught again
Bought and sold
And bought again
The dove is never free

Ring the bells (ring the bells) that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That’s how the light gets in
We asked for signs
The signs were sent
The birth betrayed
The marriage spent
Yeah the widowhood
Of every government
Signs for all to see
I can’t run no more
With that lawless crowd
While the killers in high places
Say their prayers out loud
But they’ve summoned, they’ve summoned up
A thundercloud
And they’re going to hear from me
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That’s how the light gets in
You can add up the parts
You won’t have the sum
You can strike up the march
There is no drum
Every heart, every heart to love will come
But like a refugee
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That’s how the light gets in
Ring the bells that still can ring (ring the bells that still can ring)
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything (there is a crack in everything)
That’s how the light gets in
That’s how the light gets in
That’s how the light gets in

Avec le temps
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
on oublie le visage et l’on oublie la voix
le cœur, quand ça bat plus, c’est pas la peine d’aller
chercher plus loin, faut laisser faire et c’est très bien

Avec le temps
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
l’autre qu’on adorait, qu’on cherchait sous la pluie
l’autre qu’on devinait au détour d’un regard
entre les mots, entre les lignes et sous le fard
d’un serment maquillé qui s’en va faire sa nuit
avec le temps tout s’évanouit
avec le temps
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
mêm’ les plus chouett’s souv’nirs ça t’as un’ de ces gueules
à la gal’rie j’farfouille dans les rayons d’la mort
le samedi soir quand la tendresse s’en va tout’ seule
Avec le temps.
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
l’autre à qui l’on croyait pour un rhume, pour un rien
l’autre à qui l’on donnait du vent et des bijoux
pour qui l’on eût vendu son âme pour quelques sous
devant quoi l’on s’traînait comme traînent les chiens
avec le temps, va, tout va bien
Avec le temps
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
on oublie les passions et l’on oublie les voix
qui vous disaient tout bas les mots des pauvres gens
ne rentre pas trop tard, surtout ne prends pas froid
Avec le temps
avec le temps, va, tout s’en va
et l’on se sent blanchi comme un cheval fourbu
et l’on se sent glacé dans un lit de hasard
et l’on se sent tout seul peut-être mais peinard
et l’on se sent floué par les années perdues- alors vraiment
avec le temps on n’aime plus
