Éric Charden - Le prix des allumettes (English translation)

English translation

The Price of Matches

Everything goes too fast, and everything changes without waiting for us
And we forget everything before we've been able to understand
Like many others, I wonder where my life is going
Often I think, with luck it will go on
 
You, you don't change, you've always thought the same
You, you don't change, you are like the price of matches
You, you don't move, everything passes over your head
You, you're like me, we are like the price of matches
 
What I buy, after a few months is out of fashion
And your qualifications already seem as old as Herod
Perhaps I'll raise some sheep soon
Often I think, with luck it's going to happen
 
You, you don't change, you've always thought the same
You, you don't change, you're like the price of matches
You, you don't move, everything passes over your head
You, you're like me, we are like the price of matches
 
You, you don't change, you've always thought the same
You, you don't change, you're like the price of matches
You, you don't move, everything passes over your head
You, you're like me, we are like the price of matches
