Carla Bruni – Le Toi Du Moi lyrics

Artist: Carla Bruni

Album: Quelqu’un M’a Dit

Year: 2002

Je suis ton pile

Tu es mon face

Toi mon nombril

Et moi ta glace

Tu es l’envie et moi le geste

Toi le citron et moi le zeste

Je suis le thé, tu es la tasse

Toi la guitare et moi la basse

Je suis la pluie et tu es mes gouttes

Tu es le oui et moi le doute

T’es le bouquet je suis les fleurs

Tu es l’aorte et moi le coeur

Toi t’es l’instant moi le bonheur

Tu es le verre je suis le vin

Toi tu es l’herbe et moi le joint

Tu es le vent j’suis la rafale

Toi la raquette et moi la balle

T’es le jouet et moi l’enfant

T’es le vieillard et moi le temps

Je suis l’iris tu es la pupille

Je suis l’épice toi la papille

Toi l’eau qui vient et moi la bouche

Toi l’aube et moi le ciel qui s’couche

T’es le vicaire et moi l’ivresse

T’es le mensonge moi la paresse

T’es le guépard moi la vitesse

Tu es la main moi la caresse

Je suis l’enfer de ta pécheresse

Tu es le Ciel moi la Terre, hum

Je suis l’oreille de ta musique

Je suis le soleil de tes tropiques

Je suis le tabac de ta pipe

T’es le plaisir je suis la foudre

Tu es la gamme et moi la note

Tu es la flamme moi l’allumette

T’es la chaleur j’suis la paresse

T’es la torpeur et moi la sieste

T’es la fraîcheur et moi l’averse

Tu es les fesses je suis la chaise

Tu es bémol et moi j’suis dièse

T’es le Laurel de mon Hardy

T’es le plaisir de mon soupir

T’es la moustache de mon Trotski

T’es tous les éclats de mon rire

Tu es le chant de ma sirène

Tu es le sang et moi la veine

T’es le jamais de mon toujours

T’es mon amour t’es mon amour

Je suis ton pile

Toi mon face

Toi mon nombril

Et moi ta glace

Tu es l’envie et moi le geste

T’es le citron et moi le zeste

Je suis le thé, tu es la tasse

Toi la putain et moi la passe

Tu es la tombée moi l’épitaphe

Et toi le texte, moi le paragraphe

Tu es le lapsus et moi la gaffe

Toi l’élégance et moi la grâce

Tu es l’effet et moi la cause

Toi le divan moi la névrose

Toi l’épine moi la rose

Tu es la tristesse moi le poète

Tu es la Belle et moi la Bête

Tu es le corps et moi la tête

Tu es le corps. Hummm !

T’es le sérieux moi l’insouciance

Toi le flic moi la balance

Toi le gibier moi la potence

Toi l’ennui et moi la transe

Toi le très peu moi le beaucoup

Moi le sage et toi le fou

Tu es l’éclair et moi la poudre

Toi la paille et moi la poutre

Tu es le surmoi de mon ça

C’est toi qu’arrives des mois si ?

Tu es la mère et moi le doute

Tu es le néant et moi le tout

Tu es le chant de ma sirène

Toi tu es le sang et moi la veine

T’es le jamais de mon toujours

T’es mon amour t’es mon amour
