J Essaye

[Verse 1: Orelsan]

Yesterday and tomorrow are the same day, I've come full circle

Remind me to stop the music before going to bed

I spend 6 months writing verses nobody will ever listen to

The only person who shouts my name is my father when I'm drunk

Cigaret after cigaret in a bottomless bottle I don't write a single new song

we wander round the ring road, around town, in megastores

In short, we wander in circles

I wait an extraterrestrial sign, I wait for someone to tell me:

"Your whole life is just a big lie"

While my boss drives me to sully my principles

But it's my job, I let it go

And we destroy our health to feel alive

I'm not as small, I'm older, but I never grew

most of the things people around here dream about would bore me to death

most of the things people around here dream about would bore me to death

 

[Chorus: Jeannine]

I try, I try to do my best

And I'm bored when things get serious

As I leave I tell them right in the eyes

" I should have done a bit better "

I try, I try ...

I try, I try ...

I try, I try ...

I try, I try to do my best

 

[Verse 2: Orelsan]

When I was younger I had dreams, now I have regrets

Unlike the middle-class old cows of my town, I would maybe never have a new body

I'm so bored I watch the download bar scroll

Sometimes I go out into nightclubs where I dream to smash the DJ's face

If I wrote love songs, it would be to say that it doesn't exist

I pretend not to listen to anybody, but that's only because I'm afraid of what they say about me

Everyone tells me that I'll end up changing, I have trouble understanding how they can believe it

While I'm not even able to change a light bulb, I've been pissing in the dark for six months now

I have fantasies of a teen and the bitterness of an old geezer

All I want is to strike a balance

It's mostly to myself that I lie when I repeat that I try, that I try to do my best

It's mostly to myself that I lie when I repeat that I try, that I try to do my best

 

[Chorus: Jeannine]

I try, I try to do my best

And I'm bored when things get serious

As I leave I tell them right in the eyes

" I should have done a bit better "

I try, I try ...

I try, I try ...

I try, I try ...

I try, I try to do my best

 

[Bridge: Orelsan]

If we all have a place, all have a rank

I probably didn't receive their fucking plan

Go tell them it's not funny anymore

I would like to understand the trick now

It was supposed to last just for a while

I've been past 20 for almost 10 years

 

[Chorus: Jeannine]

I try, I try to do my best

And I'm bored when things get serious

As I leave I tell them right in the eyes

" I should have done a bit better "

I try, I try ...

I try, I try ...

I try, I try ...

I try, I try to do my best

Pourquoi pas, j'essaye de clarifier la situation.

What's wrong with you? I'm trying to defuse the situation.

Seigneur, j'essaye de comprendre.

Even though right now, Lord, I'm trying to understand.
