Mercy

Je suis née ce matin
Je m'appelle Mercy
Au milieu de la mer
Entre deux pays, Mercy

C'était un long chemin et Maman l'a pris
Elle m'avait dans la peau, huit mois et demi
Oh oui, huit mois et demi

On a quitté la maison, c'était la guerre
Sûr qu'elle avait raison, y'avait rien à perdre
Oh non, excepté la vie

Je suis née ce matin
Je m'appelle Mercy
On m'a tendu la main
Et je suis en vie
Je suis tous ces enfants
Que la mer a pris
Je vivrai cent mille ans
Je m'appelle Mercy

Et là devant nos yeux y'avait l'ennemie
Une immensité bleue peut-être infinie
Mais oui, on en connaissait le prix

Surgissant d'une vague, un navire ami
A redonné sa chance à notre survie
C'est là, que j'ai poussé mon premier cri

Je suis née ce matin
Je m'appelle Mercy
On m'a tendu la main
Et je suis en vie
Je suis tous ces enfants
Que la mer a pris
Je vivrai cent mille ans
Je m'appelle Mercy

Je suis née ce matin
Je m'appelle Mercy

Merci, merci, merci, merci
Merci, merci, je vais bien merci
Merci, merci, merci, merci
Merci, merci, je vais bien merci

Mercy

I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
On the open sea
Between two countries, Mercy

It was a long path, and my mother took it
She had me inside her skin, eight months and a half
Oh yes, eight months and a half

We left our home, it was the war
For sure she had a reason, there was nothing to lose
Oh no, nothing but life

I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
They offered me a hand
And I'm alive
I am all those children
Who were taken by the sea
I'll live a hundred thousand years
My name is Mercy

And there in front of our eyes, there was the enemy
A blue immensity, maybe infinite
But yes, we knew the price

Emerging from a wave, there's a friendly ship
It gave again its luck to our survival
It's there that I cried for the first time

I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
They offered me a hand
And I'm alive
I am all those children
Who were taken by the sea
I'll live a hundred thousand years
My name is Mercy

I was born this morning
My name is Mercy

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you, thank you, I'm fine thank you
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you, thank you, I'm fine thank you
