La Fouine – J’avais pas les mots (English lyrics)

1st verse :
I can hear my mother cry at night ever since I started hanging out downstairs
In this shit hole, I’m undesirable, I can hear the teachers laughing
Building A, Police office, I don’t even know where to go next
When things aren’t going well and you don’t have any money, It’s impossible to get away
No degree, a few chromes and I hear them speak
Olympia, Bercy, Dôme, and I catch myself daydreaming
flashing headlights, sirens and I’m a light sleeper
Bottle of champagne, silicone : you gotta relax yourself

Chorus :
Alone in the back of the classroom, I would dream about getting away from here
But I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words
I soudld’ve taken her in my arms, told her that she meant a lot to me
But I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words
“Mom I love you Daddy also” I was always unable to say it
I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words
When I was younger I couldn’t find the words to tell my story to them
I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words

2nd verse :
Once the doors are shut, I smoke weed and I let everyone talk shit
I fall to the ground, I get back on the sadlle, I see my life being spread
First gear, second gear, how many times have I stalled ?
Warn my father, warn my mother, I’ll be gone for a few years
Insurance, Registration documents, I’m being pulled over day and night
No vacations, some liquor, I’m spending summer in the projects
Wheeling and dealing, merchandises, I’m influential no matter what they say
Against all odds, the one that they keep trying to put down will end up growing, no matter what they say

Chorus :
Alone in the back of the classroom, I would dream about getting away from here
But I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words
I soudld’ve taken her in my arms, told her that she meant a lot to me
But I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words
“Mom I love you Daddy also” I was always unable to say it
I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words
When I was younger I couldn’t find the right words to tell my story to them
I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words

3rd verse :
Misunderstood in my corner, nobody to talk to
“You won’t amount to much” the guidance counselor would say to me
Dad, stop complaining, mom, put down that broomstick
Too many years went by, we never found the time to speak to each other
Never around you worked too much, she couldn’t find the words either
“When you grow old”, those words where often on my mind
I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words
In my silent withdrawal bro, I couldn’t find the words

Chorus :
Alone in the back of the classroom, I would dream about getting away from here
But I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words
I soudld’ve taken her in my arms, told her that she meant a lot to me
But I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words
“Mom I love you Daddy also” I was always unable to say it
I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words
When I was younger I couldn’t find the words to tell my story to them
I couldn’t find the words, I couldn’t, I couldn’t find the words
