Je ne sais pas - Joyce Jonathan [English Cover]

So, my favourite song right now is 'Je ne sais pas' by Joyce Jonathan. A pretty popular and catchy song right now. I've done a rough translation which I'm going to post here, and also the lyrics to my english adaptation. For the heck of it, I guess I'll also put the original lyrics and a link to her beautiful video.

So I've made a video for my english adaptation, and I am rather nervous about it. I hope that my translation isn't terrible, and is still understandable in the adaptation.

I suppose I'll make another video when I get my camera...right now what I have is lacking in video and sound quality, so please, do pardon the terrible quality.

French:
Je Ne Sais Pas
Il y a des mots qui me gène des centaines de mots des milliers de rengaines qui ne sont jamais les mêmes

Comment te dire je veux pas te mentir tu m'attires et c'est la que ce trouve le vrai fond du problème

Ton orgueil tes caprices tes baisers des délices tes désirs des supplices je vois vraiment pas où ça nous mènes

Alors, on se raisonne c'est pas la fin de notre monde
Et à tord on se questionne encore une dernière fois

Je ne sais pas comment te dire j'aurais peur de tout foutre en l'air de tout détruire
Un tas d'idées à mettre au clair depuis longtemps
Mais j'ai toujours laissé derrière mes sentiments

Parfois je me dis que j'ai tors de rester, si passive mais toi tu me regarde, moi je te dévore
Et c'est parfois trop dur de discerner l'amour
Mon ami mon amant mon amour et bien plus encore

Alors, on se raisonne c'est pas la fin de notre monde
Et à tord on se questionne encore une dernière fois

Je ne sais pas comment te dire j'aurais peur de tout foutre en l'air de tout détruire
Un tas d'idées à mettre au clair depuis longtemps
Mais j'ai toujours laissé derrière mes sentiments
(x 2)

je te veux toi avec défaut et tes problèmes de fabrications
je te veux toi j'veux pas un faux pas de contrefaçons
j'veux pas te rendre pour prendre un autre
j' veux pas te vendre pour une ou deux fautes
je veux tes mots je veux ta peau c'est jamais trop

je te veux plus changer ta vie qui veut un autre un peu plus joli
je ne veux pas je ne veux plus jamais voulu
et puis t'es qui j'te connais pas t'as du rêver ce n'était pas moi
mes confusions tu les connais laissons tomber

comment te dire j'aurais peur de tout foutre en l'air de tout détruire
Un tas d'idées à mettre au clair depuis longtemps
Mais j'ai toujours laissé derrière mes sentiments

Je ne sais pas comment te dire j'aurais peur de tout foutre en l'air de tout détruire
Un tas d'idées à mettre au clair depuis longtemps
Mais j'ai toujours laissé derrière mes sentiments
(x 2)

English:
I don't know
There are words that bother me, hundreds of thousands of words of tunes that are never the same

How do I say to you that I don't want to lie to you, that I find you attractive, the real bottom of the problem

Your pride, you whims, your delightful kisses, your torturous desires, I truly don't see where it's taking us

Then, for our reasons it's not the end of our world
And wrongly, we question ourselves again, one last time


I don't know how to say to you I would be afraid of smashing up and destroying it all

Many ideas to make clear since a long time ago

But I always left behind my feelings


Sometimes I tell myself that I twisted it up to remain the same but you, you look at me, I devour you
And it's sometimes too hard to discern love
My friend, my lover, my love et much more...

Then, for our reasons it's not the end of our world
And wrongly, we question ourselves again, one last time


I don't know how to say to you I would be afraid of smashing up and destroying it all

Many ideas to make clear since a long time ago

But I always left behind my feelings
(X2)

I want you, you with faults and the problems you make

I want you, you, I don't want not a fake not of the imagination
I don't want to make you with another
I don't want to sell you for one or two faults
I want your words, I want your touch, it's never too much
I want you to change more, your life that wants another a little prettier
I don't want, I don't want anymore, never wanter et then you are who I know you to be but you have to wake up, this isn't me
My confusions, you know them and overlook them

How do I say to you I would be afraid of smashing up and destroying it all

Many ideas to make clear since a long time ago

But I always left behind my feelings


I don't know how to say to you I would be afraid of smashing up and destroying it all

Many ideas to make clear since a long time ago

But I always left behind my feelings
(X2)

My Version:
I don't know
There are these words that are getting to me, hundreds of thousands of words of the tunes that are never the same

How can I say, tell you that I didn't mean it come out like that and my falling in love was the problem

Your pride, and your whims, and your kisses delight, your torturous desires, I truly don't see where it's going

And so, our reasons, this cannot be the end of our world
Then, we question it all one last time


I don't know how to say to you, I must be scared of messing up it all for you

Trying to make things clear again, since long ago

But always left behind the last of what I felt


Sometimes I'll hope that we would stay the same, it's clear that I'm blaming myself, that you needed me
And it's sometimes too hard to discern it all
My friend and my lover, my love, oh you're so much more...

And so, our reasons, this cannot be the end of our world
Then, we question it all one last time


I don't know how to say to you, I must be scared of messing up it all for you

Trying to make things clear again, since long ago

But always left behind the last of what I felt
(X2)

And all of your faults are what I love, and the problems you always make

I'm wanting you, not something false, not something counterfeit
I don't want to make you want another
I won't neglect for one or two faults
I want your words, I want your touch, never too much

I want to change your life some more, which wants another more beautiful
I do not want, I don't want more, never wanted then you are who I do not know, you have to wake when I'm not there
I am so lost, you know it all, letting it go

And how to say to you that I just must be scared of messing up

Trying to make things clear again, since long ago

But always left behind the last of what I felt


I don't know how to say to you, I must be scared of messing up it all for you

Trying to make things clear again, since long ago

But always left behind the last of what I felt
(X2)
