Nana Mouskouri Solitaire Lyrics

Last updated:

C'était un homme aux yeux de nuit,
Au coeur perdu par trop d'indifférence
Qui entre lui et ses amis
Avait construit un rempart de silence

Le solitaire portait bien son nom
Toutes ses rues menaient à des prisons
Il habitait seul avec ses secrets
L'impasse des regrets
Il était jusqu'au bord de la folie
Le compagnon de la mélancolie
Parmi les vents qui font tourner la terre,
Il restait solitaire

C'était un homme de nulle part
Dont la mémoire n'avait pas d'horizon

Le solitaire portait bien son nom
Toutes ses rues menaient à des prisons
Il habitait seul avec ses secrets
L'impasse des regrets
Il était jusqu'au bord de la folie
Le compagnon de la mélancolie
Parmi les vents qui font tourner la terre,
Il restait solitaire
Il restait solitaire

Translation to english

There was a man-a lonely man
Who lost his love through his indifference
A heart that cared,that went unshared
Until it died within his silence

And solitaire's the only game in town
And ev'ry road he takes-takes him down
While life goes on around him everywhere
He's playing solitaire

And keeping to himself begins to deal
But sill the King of Hearts is well concealed
Another losing game comes to a end
And he deals them out again

A little hope goes up in smoke
Just how it goes -goes without saying
There was a man- a lonely man
Who would command the hand he's playing

And solitaire's the only game in town
And ev'ry road he takes- takes him down
While life goes on around him everywhere
He's playing solitaire
