Pocahantas - Colors Of The Wind (L'air Du Vent)

in #music2 years ago (edited)

A classic which always fascinated me and which lulled my childhood. It's a melody so well found that tells a story in itself. And the words are just exceptional, transcribed in most languages, transmitting a message of love, tolerance and universal equality. It's beautiful isn't it? :,)

It's really a song that made me love nature even more, and the rather wild girls.

Haha. It's true, who can resist the charm of this so emancipated Pocahantas with her resplendent hair?

Lyrics (French Version below)

You think I'm an ignorant savage
And you've been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don't know
You don't know
You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name
You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew, you never knew
Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun sweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they're worth
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends
How high will the sycamore grow
If you cut it down, then you'll never know
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind
You can own the Earth and still
All you'll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind


Un grand classique qui a berçé mon enfance. C'est une mélodie si bien trouvée, qui raconte un histoire en elle-même. Et le paroles sont justes exeptionnelles, retranscrites dans la plupart des langues, qui transmettent un message d'amour, de tolérance et d'égalité universelle. C'est beau n'est-ce pas? :,)

C'est vraiment une chanson qui m'a incité à aimer encore plus la nature, et les filles plutôt sauvages.

Haha. C'est vrai, qui peut résister au charme de cette Pocahantas à l'attitude si émancipée et à la chevelure si resplendissante?


Pour toi je suis l'ignorante sauvage
Tu me parles de ma différence
Je crois sans malveillance
Mais si dans ton langage
Tu emploies le mot sauvage
C'est que tes yeux sont remplis de nuages
De nuages
Tu crois que la Terre t'appartient tout entière
Pour toi ce n'est qu'un tapis de poussière
Moi je sais que la pierre, l'oiseau et les fleurs
Ont une vie, ont un esprit et un cœur
Pour toi l'étranger ne porte le nom d'homme
Que s'il te ressemble et pense à ta façon
Mais en marchant dans ses pas tu te questionnes
Es-tu sûr au fond de toi d'avoir raison?
Comprends-tu le chant d'espoir du loup qui meurs d'amour
Les pleurs du chat sauvage au petit jour?
Entends-tu chanter les esprits de la montagne?
Peux-tu peindre en mille couleurs l'air du vent?
Peux-tu peindre en mille couleurs l'air du vent?
Courrons dans les forêts d'or et de lumière
Partageons-nous les fruits mûrs de la vie
La Terre nous offre ses trésors, ses mystères
Le bonheur ici-bas n'a pas de prix
Je suis fille des torrents, sœur des rivières
La loutre et le héron sont mes amis
Et nous tournons tous ensemble au fil des jours
Dans un cercle, une ronde à l'infini
Là-haut le sycomore dort
Comme l'aigle royal
Il trône impérial
Les créatures de la nature
Ont besoin d'air pur
Et qu'importe la couleur de leur peau
Chantons tous en cœur les chansons de la montagne
En rêvant de pouvoir peindre l'air du vent
Mais la terre n'est que poussière tant que l'homme ignore comment
Il peut peindre en mille couleurs Couleurs L'air du vent

I'm not familiar with this song but I love your french rendition. It is nice if you can hold onto a few magical things from childhood. My wife heard it from the other room and said "is that Pocahontas!" I said YES. Always a pleasure my friend!

Oh that's sweet to hear. Yes, often music can make reappear some hidden feelings and memories from my childhood, it feels strange and good at the same time. :)
