Musical Friday: Fly Me Away

Dear friends,

Let me present to you today a song I bumped into by mistake but got stuck in my head:
French: Envole Moi

Minuit se lève en haut des tours
Les voix se taisent et tout devient aveugle et sourd
La nuit camoufle pour quelques heures
La zone sale et les épaves et la laideur

J'ai pas choisi de naître ici
Entre l'ignorance et la violence et l'ennui
J'm'en sortirai, j'me le promets
Et s'il le faut, j'emploierai des moyens légaux

Envole-moi {3x}
Loin de cette fatalité qui colle à ma peau
Envole-moi {2x}
Remplis ma tête d'autres horizons, d'autres mots
Envole-moi

Pas de question ni rébellion
Règles du jeu fixées mais les dés sont pipés
L'hiver est glace, l'été est feu
Ici, y a jamais de saison pour être mieux

J'ai pas choisi de vivre ici
Entre la soumission, la peur ou l'abandon
J'm'en sortirai, je te le jure
A coup de livres, je franchirai tous ces murs

Envole-moi {3x}
Loin de cette fatalité qui colle à ma peau
Envole-moi {2x}
Remplis ma tête d'autres horizons, d'autres mots
Envole-moi

Me laisse pas là , emmène-moi, envole-moi
Croiser d'autres yeux qui ne se résignent pas
Envole-moi, tire-moi de là
Montre-moi ces autres vies que je ne sais pas
Envole-moi {3x}
Regarde-moi bien, je ne leur ressemble pas
Me laisse pas là , envole-moi
Avec ou sans toi, je n'finirai pas comme ça
Envole-moi, envole-moi, envole-moi...

English version:  Fly Me Away

Midnight rises, at the top of the towers
The voices fall silent
And everything becomes blind and deaf
The night is hiding for few hours
The dirty places and the wrecks and the ugliness

I didn't choose to be born here
Between ignorance and violence and boredom
I'm gonna beat it1, I promise
And if necessary, I will use legal means

Fly me away2 {x3}
Away from this fate which is sticked to my skin
Fly me away {x2}
Fill my head with other horizons, other words
Fly me away

No questions or rebellions
Rules of game fixed but the dice are loaded
Winter is ice, summer is fire
Here there's never a season to fell better

I didn't choose to be born here
Between the submission, the fear or the abandonment
I'm gonna beat it, I swear to you
With some books, I'll cross all these walls

Fly me away {x3}
Away from this fate which is sticked to my skin
Fly me away {x2}
Fill my head with other horizons, other words
Fly me away

Don't leave me here, take me away, fly me away
To meet other eyes that aren't resigned
Fly me away, get me out of here
Show me these other lives that I don't know
Fly me away {x3}
Look at me closely, I don't look like them
Don't leave me here, fly me away
With or without you, I'll not end up like this
Fly me away, fly me away, fly me away...

    1. also can be translated by "I'll get out from here"
    2. in the meaning of "take me away"

This song is not new at all so if you think you heard that before, you are right, look here:

You can pick your favourite version :) I think they are both good and they have different styles ;)

Hope you enjoyed the song for this Friday :*
I am going to fly away now to a relaxing weekend :)

Yours truly,
