Une ville avec un fleuve enterré 
Voilà la ville avec un fleuve enterré 
Qui coule sous les pavés 
Ciel de plomb 
Bas en dessous de la place dorée 
Bruxelles des années 80 
Ma joie et mes remords 
Dans le vidéo bar branché où 
Sans un sou sur la rue 
Des superstars inconnues 
En longs manteaux noirs 
Je suis assis sur une rive lointaine 
Savourant ce chagrin ancien 
Perdu dans la musique 
Déformé par la musique 
Posant dans le cimetière 
Debout sous la pluie



A city with a buried river 
Here is the city with a buried river 
Which flows under the cobblestones 
leaden sky 
Down below the golden square 
80s Brussels 
My joy and my remorse 
In the trendy video bar where 
Without a penny in the street 
Unknown Superstars 
In long black coats 
I sit on a distant shore 
Savoring this ancient sorrow 
lost in the music 
Distorted by the music 
Posing in the cemetery 
Standing in the rain
