Those who know me in private, know how hard it has been for me when I let myself get managed by a certain company. This music video is therefore a personal choice of mine to share, as I can sadly understand the troubles far too well. Including through the stories which artists shared with me in private. Going independent as an artist can at times be the best choice to make. With no disrespect to the record labels of which I have gotten licensed content for years already. It’s just at times like selling your soul to the devil. I know some people working at the record labels are well aware of this fact. Anyhow, enjoy this share.

Original French lyrics

J’ai continué ma route
J’ai continué ma route, continué ma route
J’ai continué ma route (continuer, continuer)
J’ai continué ma route, continué ma route
On fait des choses qu’on regrette vraiment
Avec le temps j’ai prêté serment
J’l’ai fait sincèrement
On oublie bêtement
Je rêve d’une vie où je m’endors sagement
Je suis conscient que je te dois tellement
Avec le temps j’ai prêté serment
J’l’ai fait sincèrement
Et je le dis clairement
J’ai fait des choses que je regrette vraiment
On me dit “mets-y du tien”
Combien se perdent en chemin?
Que ferais-je si j’étais toi?
Que ferais-tu si t’étais moi?
On me dit “mets-y, du tien”
Combien m’ont tendu la main?
Que ferais-je si j’étais toi?
Que ferais-tu si t’étais moi?
Je suis venu, j’ai vu, j’ai perdu mon temps
Et j’n’ai rien pu faire à part serrer les dents
J’ai rêvé ma vieÀ travers la vitre
On désire sans effort la miséricorde
Celui qui prend la vie est derrière la porte
Là tu réalises que tout est passé si vite
J’ai continué ma route
J’ai continué ma route, continué ma route
J’ai continué ma route (continuer, continuer)
J’ai continué ma route, continué ma route
On fait des choses qu’on regrette, c’est vrai
Et j’ai appris à m’mettre en retrait
Parfois je suis distrait
Et j’en ai trop fait
Je vis la nuit car je rêve en secret
Tous ces maux que j’vais emporter
Dans les épreuves je me suis enfermé
Je me mets en danger
Je construis, je défais
On fait des choses qu’on regrette, c’est vrai (qu’on regrette, c’est vrai)
On me dit “mets-y du tien”
Combien se perdent en chemin?
Que ferais-je si j’étais toi?
Que ferais-tu si t’étais moi?
On me dit “mets-y, du tien”
Combien m’ont tendu la main?
Que ferais-je si j’étais toi?
Que ferais-tu si t’étais moi?
Je suis venu, j’ai vu, j’ai perdu mon temps
Et j’n’ai rien pu faire à part serrer les dents
J’ai rêvé ma vie
À travers la vitre
On désire sans effort la miséricorde
Celui qui prend la vie est derrière la porte
Là tu réalises que tout est passé si vite
J’ai continué ma route
J’ai continué ma route, continué ma route
J’ai continué ma route (continuer, continuer)
J’ai continué ma route, continué ma route
Je veux plus rien croire
Je n’ai plus d’espoir
Laissez-moi avoir
Ce que je n’ai pas
Je suis perdu, je n’dors plus
En plein jour, je ne vois plus
Je suis perdu, je n’dors plus
En plein jour, je ne vois plus
Je suis venu, j’ai vu, j’ai perdu mon temps
Et j’n’ai rien pu faire à part serrer les dents
J’ai rêvé ma vie
À travers la vitre
On désire sans effort la miséricorde
Celui qui prend la vie est derrière la porte
Là tu réalises que tout est passé si vite
J’ai continué ma route
J’ai continué ma route, continué ma route
J’ai continué ma route (continuer, continuer)
J’ai continué ma route, continué ma route

Our English translation

I went on my way
I went on my way and I kept going.
I went on my way
keep on going, keep on going
I went on my way and I kept going.
We do things we really regret
In time I took an oath
I did it sincerely
One forgets it foolishly
I dream of a life where I fall asleep quietly
I am aware that I owe you so much
In time I took an oath
I did it sincerely
And I say it clearly
I have done things I really regret
People say “give it your best shot”.
How many get lost along the way?
What would I do if I were you?
What would you do if you were me?
People say “give it your best shot”.
How many have reached out to me?
What would I do if I were you?
What would you do if you were me?
I came, I saw, I wasted my time
And I could not do anything but grit my teeth
I dreamed my life
Through the glass
Mercy is effortlessly desired
The one who takes life is behind the door
There you realize that everything has gone by so fast
I went on my way
I went on my way and I kept going.
I went on my way
keep on going, keep on going
I went on my way and I kept going.
We do things we regret, it is true
And I have learned to take a step back
Sometimes I get distracted
And I have done too much
I am living at night because I am secretly dreaming
All the evils I am gonna take with me
In the trials, I have locked myself away
I put myself in danger
I build, I undo
We do things that we regret, it is true
People say “give it your best shot”.
How many get lost along the way?
What would I do if I were you?
What would you do if you were me?
People say “give it your best shot”.
How many have reached out to me?
What would I do if I were you?
What would you do if you were me?
I came, I saw, I wasted my time
And I could not do anything but grit my teeth
I dreamed my life
Through the glass
Mercy is effortlessly desired
The one who takes life is behind the door
There you realize that everything has gone by so fast
I went on my way
I went on my way and I kept going.
I went on my way
keep on going, keep on going
I went on my way and I kept going.
I do not want to believe anything
I have no more hope
Let me have what I do not have
I am lost, I can not sleep
In daylight, I can not see
I am lost, I can not sleep
In daylight, I can not see
I came, I saw, I wasted my time
And I could not do anything but grit my teeth
I dreamed my life
Through the glass
Mercy is effortlessly desired
The one who takes life is behind the door
There you realize that everything has gone by so fast
I went on my way
I went on my way and I kept going.
I went on my way.
keep on going, keep on going
I went on my way and I kept going.
