Reste aux cieux

Traduction Hocine Boukella

Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
Cher cousin.
Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
Comprends bien mes paroles.
Je n’insulte personne,
Mais moi, cette vie me suffit.

Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
Ne me terrorise pas.
Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
Ne me chasse pas.
Je ne te suivrai pas, je ne serai pas sacrifié,
Je te laisse en paix, laisse-moi en paix.

Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
J’ai encore toute ma tête.
Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
J’ai mes valeurs
Et moi, je n’ai jamais tué personne.

Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
Inutile de m’accuser.
Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
Inutile de me mépriser.
Mon frère, nos chemins ont bifurqué
Depuis très longtemps déjà.

Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
Ici les routes sont sinueuses.
Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
Elles sont souillées par la politique.
Et toi, ton chemin est droit
Il a un but et une destination.

Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
Aujourd’hui le monde est paisible
Reste aux cieux, c’est ta place,
Rendons grâce à Dieu.
Reste là-haut,
Surtout ne tombe pas

Stay in heaven

Translation Marie-Alix Sharma

Stay in heaven, this is your place
Dear cousin.
Stay in heaven, this is your place
Understand my words.
I’m not insulting anyone
But this life is enough for me.

Stay in heaven, this is your place
Don’t terrorize me.
Stay in heaven, this is your place
Don’t chase me away.
I won’t follow you, I won’t be sacrificed
I leave you in peace, leave me in peace.

Stay in heaven, this is your place
I still have all my head.
Stay in heaven, this is your place
I have my values
And I have never killed anyone.

Stay in heaven, this is your place
No need to accuse me.
Stay in heaven, this is your place
No need to despise me.
My brother, our paths have diverged
For a very long time already.

Stay in heaven, this is your place
Here the roads are winding.
Stay in heaven, this is your place
They are soiled by politics.
And you, your path is straight
It has a purpose and a destination.

Stay in heaven, this is your place
Today the world is peaceful
Stay in heaven, this is your place
Let us give thanks to God.
Stay up there
Above all, do not fall.
