Now playing on my French song playlist

Title: Je décolle
Songwriters: Marie-Mai Bouchard, Oliver Som
Performed by: Marie-Mai

Lyrics I like:

J’ai fait le choix d’aller là, d’aller là
Peur du vide et de moi et de moi
J’ai traversé au-delà, je remonte encore à chaque fois …

Je m’envole enchaînée au sol
On me dit que je suis folle
En fait, je croyais être forte
Je tombe, je redécolle …


I made the choice to go (t)here, to go (t)here
Fear of the emptiness and of me and of me
I crossed beyond, I go back again each time…

I fly away chained to the ground
They tell me that I’m crazy
In fact, I thought I was strong
I fall, I take off again

When I first heard this song, I got hooked on the repetition of the lyrics « d’aller là, d’aller là » and « et de moi et de moi » ! Its upbeat melody, positive message, and catchy lyrics makes it one of my favorite women empowerment songs.

I like to listen to songs en français, so I won’t forget the French I learned in school!

Until next Music Monday, have a good week ahead.
