“Le temps de l’amour” by Françoise Hardy is a haunting tribute to fleeting love and youth; her lilting vocals ricochet pleasantly off the heavy bass lick and paint shadows across the afternoon. Wickedly noir.

Here are the french lyrics:

Le temps de l’amour

C’est le temps de l’amour,
le temps des copains et de l’aventure.
Quand le temps va et vient,
on ne pense a rien malgre ses blessures.
Car le temps de l’amour
c’est long et c’est court,
ca dure toujours, on s’en souvient.

On se dit qu’ a vingt ans on est le roi du monde,
et qu’ éternellement il y aura dans nos yeux
tout le ciel bleu.

C’est le temps de l’amour,
le temps des copains et de l’aventure.
Quand le temps va et vient,
on ne pense a rien malgre ses blessures.
Car le temps de l’amour
ca vous met au coeur
beaucoup de chaleur et de bonheur.

Un beau jour c’est l’amour et le coeur bat plus vite,
car la vie suit son cours
et l’on est tout heureux d’etre amoureux.

C’est le temps de l’amour,
le temps des copains et de l’aventure.
Quand le temps va et vient,
on ne pense a rien malgre ses blessures.
Car le temps de l’amour
c’est long et c’est court,
ca dure toujours, on s’en souvient.

And here are the lyrics translated into English:

The Time of Love

It is the time of love,
the time of friends and adventure.
As the time comes and goes,
one thinks of nothing in spite of one’s wounds.
Because the time of love
it’s long and it’s short,
it lasts forever, one remembers it.

At twenty, we tell ourselves that we rule the world,
and that all the blue sky will be in our eyes forever.

It is the time of love,
the time of friends and adventure.
As the time comes and goes,
We think of nothing in spite of our wounds.
For the time of love
it fills your heart
with so much warmth and happiness.

One fine day it’s love and the heart beats faster,
for life follows its course
and one is totally happy to be in love.

It is the time of love,
the time of friends and adventure.
When the time comes and goes,
one thinks of nothing in spite of one’s wounds.
For the time of love
it’s long and it’s short,
it lasts forever, one remembers it.
