Bonè ou pita/Sooner or Later

10 02 2011

Pou kounye a

Mwen kwè ke mwen pèdi w

Wi, mwen pèdi w

Tout Atlantik lan separe nou

Chak minit ki pase fè m pèdi

Yon ane de bonè.

Men yon jou kanmenm,

M’ap rejwenn ou

Menm si out a di:

Mwen se dyab, dye, sòsyè, majisyen

Sa w’ vle di a.

Menm bonè ou pita

Mwen jire w’ m’ap rejwenn ou.

Lè sa a pap gen Atlantik ankò pou ki separe nou

E chak minit ap ba yon etènite de bonè,

M’ap jwenn ou.

Wi! M’ap rejwenn ou.

Lè sa imansite nou yo ap vinn bonè nou

E pap gen soufrans ankò.

Jamè, jamè

Ni Atlantik

Ni minit

Pap separe nou ankò.

****************

For now
I think I’ve lost you
Yes, I’ve lost you.
The whole Atlantic divides us .
Every minute that passes I lose
A year of happiness.
But one day, nonetheless,
I will join you.
Even if you say:
I am the devil, god, witch, magician
Whatever it is you say you are.
But sooner or later,
I swear to you, I will join you.
So there will be no more Atlantic to keep us apart
And every minute will become an eternity of happiness.
I will find you.
Yes! I will join you.
Then our immensity will become our happiness
And there will be suffering again.
Never, never
Neither the Atlantic
Nor time
Shall separate us.
