Kassav’ – Ké Sa Lévé (1995)

Si ou pou chapé
Souplé ralé pot-la dèyè’w
Pou van-an pa vini chouboulé
Sa ka rété mwen jòdi-a

(Lanmou-a ja bout) Sé pa lapenn fè wol ni gran penn ban mwen
(I bout) Chèché pawol ki pé miyonnen kò-mwen

(Lanmou-a ja bout) Pé ké rayi’w, an ké gadé doulè-mwen
(I bout) Alé!

Mé, pa rété pli lontan
Chak ti pawol ni lodè « sa bout »
Dé mo pou konsolé
Pé ké fè lavi-mwen mofwazé

Si ou pou chapé
Souplé ralé pot-la dèyè’w
Pou soley pa vini makrélé
Sa ka rivé mwen jòdi-a

(Lanmou-a ja bout) Sé pa lapenn fè wol ni gran penn ban mwen
(I bout) Lélé doulè ki pé ké sa lagyé mwen

( Lanmou-a ja bout) Pa ni maji pou kyenbé sa ka pati
(I bout) Souplé!

Mé, pa ralé pli lontan
Anlè kod-la ki za tranglé mwen
Two kapon pou man mò
An ké pran labitid wè dimen san ou,
An ké sa rilévé

(Ké sa lévé) Man ké kyiré tout tras ou kité, han han!
(Ké sa lévé) Menm si sé kyè-mwen ki grafigné, tanpi!

(An ké sa lévé) Menm si sé an lasanblan , man ké sa rivé souri
Pa lélé pli lontan doulè ki pé ké lagyé mwen

Kité lenbé-a fasé menm manniè i té rivé.
An tet-mwen sé lagya, pa viré lélé doulè-a!

(An ké sa lévé) Lévé, lévé, lévé, lévé, lévé

(Ké sa lévé) Menm si man pou manjé labou
(Lévé x5)

Désann an fenfon lenbé-a, an ké sa lévé
Touvé fos la i séré
(Lévé x5)
Mal-fanm pa ka tonbé lontan, lontan

(Ké sa lévé) Lévé (x5)
An ké sa lévé …

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

If you have to walk away
Please pull the door behind you
So the wind may not come and turn upside down
What I’ve got left today

(Love is over) No need to pretend to feel so sorry for me
(It’s over) (Or) To look for words that may sweeten me

(Our) love is over) (I) Won’t hate you, I will keep (in) my pain
(It’s over) (Just) Go!

But, don’t stay any longer
Each little word smells of the end
A couple of words of comfort
Will not bring my life to a change

If you have to walk away
Please pull the door behind you
So the sun may not come and be nosy
(About) What’s happening to me today

(Love is over) No need to pretend to feel so sorry for me
(It’s over) (Or) To stir a pain that cannot leave me

(Our love is over) There’s no magic to hold what’s escaping
(It’s over) Please!

But, don’t pull any longer
The rope that has already strangled me
Too coward to die
I’ll get used to see the future without you
I’ll be able to stand again

(I) Will be able to stand) I’ll scrub all traces you’ve left, oh yeah
(Will be able to stand) Even if it’s my heart that’s been scratched, too bad!

(I’ll be able to stand) Even if I just pretend
I’ll be able to smile, don’t stir up any longer a pain that won’t leave me

Let the sorrow fade the same way it came
In my head there’s « a fighting game », don’t come back and stir up the pain

(I’ll be able to stand) Stand, stand, stand, stand, stand

(Will be able to stand) Even if I have to eat dirt
(Stand x5)

Down in the depths of sorrow, I’ll be able to stand
Find strength where it’s hidden
(Stand x5)
Strong women don’t fall too long, too long

(Will be able to stand) Stand (x5)
I’ll be able to stand …
