Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Quick translation:

Under the Mirabeau Bridge flows the Seine,
And it has to be that
I'm reminded of our love
Joy always came after pain.

Comes the night, rings the hour
The days go by, I remain.

Hand in hand let's stay face to face
While beneath
The bridge of our arms passes
The weary wave of eternal gazes

Comes the night etc

Love goes away like this flowing water
Love goes away
How life is slow
And how hope is violent

Comes the night etc

Pass the days and pass the weeks
Nor past time
Nor love return
Under the Mirabeau Bridge flows the Seine.

Comes the night, rings the hour,
The days go by, I remain.

Famously set to music and sung by Léo Ferré.
