ARTIST:   Emily Loizeau
ALBUM:   Pays Sauvage
RELEASED:   2009.02.03 and/or 2009.10.20  *tears hair out*
TRACK:   #11, "In Our Dreams"
COMPOSER:   Emily Loizeau


it's a magical affair
we are carried in the air
in our dreams
and they take us by the hand
to the place where they stand
in our dreams

and they call us by our names
and they say we haven't changed
in our dreams
and we know that they don't lie
if they did they wouldn't cry
in our dreams
in our dreams
in our dreams

* and we keep them in our heart
   only sleep keeps us apart
   and the wind fills our sail
   and the wind fills our sail

sometimes they remain in silence
sometimes they provoke the violence
of our dreams
we are weak and they are strong
they can carry us along
in our dreams

and in everything they say
there's a rule that we obey
in our dreams
we cherish each and every word
and then we lose them and it hurts
but we know
that they live
in our dreams

* (repeat)

(oooh)
(oooh)
(we are the sailors of the dark)
(we are the sailors of the dark)

it's a magical affair
when they whisper in the air
in our dreams
and the stories that they tell
we don't know but we know well
in our dreams

and they call us by our names
and they say that we have changed
in our dreams
and we need to stay together
'cause their words we have to gather
in our dreams
in our dreams
in our dreams

*
(repeat)

[then start over again, until...whenever, apparently...]



The album track is supposedly five minutes and ten seconds long; the only reliable source for streaming I can find is a YouTube video of somebody's baby girl rolling around and being cute, and that's 05:15, and it cuts off at an odd place.  (Well, there's also the stop-motion one with Legos and traffic noises, which is awesome, but alas only 03:52; damn but I miss IMEEM.)  Ugh, and then the live performances, each of which is a completely different version of the song...  *headdesk*

[[ EDIT:  Mr. Jean-Claude Courbon was kind enough to scan the CD booklet pages containing the official lyrics!  Awesome~ ]]
