Tiens, parlons-en de mes proches.
Here, let's talk about my loved ones.
Je pense à eux , maintenant que je suis sur cette scène, devant vous.
I am thinking about them now, now that I am on this stage, in front of you.
Je pense aux vivants, je pense aux morts et bizarrement, je pense surtout aux morts.
I think of the living, I think of the dead and strangely, I mostly think of the dead.
Peut-être parce que les vivants on se parle encore et que les morts, je leur parle moi mais eux, ils ne me parlent pas.
Maybe because the living we still talk to each other and the dead, I talk to them, but they don't talk to me.
Enfin parfois j'ai l'impression que si.
Well, sometimes I feel like they do.
Disons que parfois, j'ai l'impression que je vois des signes.
Let's say that sometimes I feel like I see signs.
Quand par exemple j'ai un rendez-vous important et que sur la route, je croise une grue de chantier.
When, for example, I have an important appointment and on the road, I come across a construction crane.
Parce que ma mère adorait les grues de chantier, bah j'ai l'impression que c'est elle.
Because my mother loved construction cranes, well I have the impression that it is her.
J'ai l'impression qu'elle a quelque chose à me dire de réconfortant.
I feel like she has something comforting to say to me.
Enfin gageons que c'est quand même moins direct qu'un petit texto qui dit :
But let's bet that it's still less direct than a little text message that says:
"Je pense à toi pour ce soir, j'ai confiance, ça va bien se passer".
