New me is fearless
walking bare-headed under heavy rain
soaked and all wet

Embracing the world around
the grey and windy bridge
over the Seine

Total freedom from old fears
fear of walking
fear of unknown paths
fear of being seen disheveled

Feeling the rain on my face
my make up running down

Breathing the cold air
all alone on that empty bridge
over the water

I am alive
and so happy

« Rappelle-toi Barbara
Il pleuvait sans cesse sur Brest ce jour-là
Et tu marchais souriante
Epanouie ravie ruisselante
Sous la pluie »

Jacques Prévert, Paroles
