We were happy

I don't know if we were happy

We felt pain

We felt pain

without knowing exactly where

We were seven, eight and nine

She'd always done it that way

That's the way

she'd always wanted to do it

We managed

We managed pretty well anyway

We didn't miss her

We'd wait for her

We'd wander around

We'd do what we want

It's summertime

Eating was not a problem

We had fun going that way

We had to go farther and farther

from home

Not to go back

to the same restaurants

We loved each other

We loved each other too much

One person in three bodies

We'd quarrel, we'd fight

Hard

As hard as we can

She'd call us sometimes

to tell us she loved us

Glad to know it

Glad to hear it

She didn' t come home

School started again

She called to wish us luck

We felt happy

Not about starting school

School we didn't like. We'd wait...

We'd wait all day long for it to end

To be by ourselves at night,

after school

Time would go by

Winter would come

We'd wait for her

Each of us had a speciality

Romeo made pasta

Leo did the washing-up

and Louna made yoghurt cakes

At night, we'd go out

In summer, for water fights

In winter, to catch cold

To have a fever

Not to go to school

When we were ill, we'd cry

Or even when we weren't

For nothing, for everything

We got over it anyway

On the phone,

we shouldn't say we were alone

Never

It was a secret

Our secret

We were magicians

We could make anything

appear and disappear

Our home,

our home was our home

Nobody'd come

But her, sometimes

We wouldn' t see our dads,

hardly ever

She didn't want them

to come to our home

Us to go to theirs

She didn't want us to split up

Louna's dad had wanted

to take her for a holiday

She didn't want to

He had to take all three of us

or none

We dressed up

We dressed up all the tIme

to try to escape ourselves

We'd become kings,

princesses and queens

When I grow up, I'll be an astronaut

When I grow up, I'll be a princess

When I grow up,

I'll have lots of elephants

that will be my friends

We were aIways talking about

when we'd be big. It wouldn't come

We were still there. We stayed

She didn't come

She'd pop in

She'd stay

She'd stay a little bit sometimes

Sometimes not

She'd do some shopping

She'd take us to restaurants

We'd get presents

Note-books too, for school

She'd tell us stories

The story of the sea

The water boiling, steaming away...

It makes clouds

clouds bumping into hills, bursting

rain

into the ground, the rivers

and into the sea

In the morning, she'd be gone

It hadn't aIways been easy

We didn't need any sleep

We were never tired

Small hours made long days

We had a face. A doll

Her gIft to us

Doll would watch us

love us

listen to us

He'd wake us up

For fun, for nothing

To tell us we had to go to school

Then we'd go back to sleep

In the morning, we wouldn't wake up

We'd wait

We'd wait to see her,

to be in her arms

We did turn off the meter

She didn't pay

She didn't pay attention

to these things

She'd pay attention to nothing

Before, it wasn't the same thing

She was there a bit more

We wouldn't want to stay in the dark

So when the night fell, we'd go out

Our small heater wouldn't work

The power company

had taken the meter away

We'd sleep together, huddled up

Huddled up and dressed

Huddled up agaInst one another

We had no pals

We had Ali. We'd been to his house

a few tImes for his birthday

Could you close the door, please ?

I've asked you to come

because there's a problem

You're always late,

I'd like to know why

It's the subway

We take the subway every morning
