Mon père dit : j'aimerais ne plus peser
sur tes épaules
Si tu me descendais à terre
on pourrait marcher côte à côte
Je ne suis pas aveugle ni paralytique
Seulement un peu mort
Pour le moment
Peut-être qu'on pourrait se donner los angeles main
Comme quand tu étais petit
Maintenant c'est moi qui suis petit
Mais je grandirai
J'ai l'éternité pour ça.
