Maître Gims ft. Sia – Je te pardonne (English lyrics)

During an interview with Booska P Maitre Gims spoke about his collaboration with Australian superstar SIA : “We were listening to the song and thought that it really had an international potential. And we imagined having SIA on it, just like that…to me SIA, when you look at the work that she has done, whether it’s for Rihanna with diamond, or Britney or whoever, today in the artistic world, when people hear her name, they’re intimidated. So I didn’t even imagine for a second that she was going to accept. I was like nahh it’s complicated. It’s easier to have Rihanna or Beyoncé. She’s special she doesn’t do much featurings…but at the same time she’s a monster. So we’re like, let’s still send her the track…the next day I’m in the car and I get a call from my record label owner”. And the rest is basically history. She reportedly heard the song and went to the studio right away. He explained that the craziest part to him was that she kept the same melody that he initially came up with. The fact that she kept the same melody of a “little French guy in Paris, that isn’t even international” (his words) is what touched him the most.

First verse (Maître Gims) :
You asked me to forgive you, and I rejected you (rejected you)
I wanted you to understand that I was suffering (I was suffering)
But you left your scent on the sheets (On the sheets)
I would give everything up just to be in your arms (In your arms)

Pre-chorus (Maître Gims) :
And I tried to hate you but the anger left
The good memories prevailed on the hate and the rancor

Chorus (Sia) :
I forgive you, you know not what you have done
Ohh I, I forgive you, now it’s time for me to move on
Ohh I, I forgive you, you did not see right from wrong
Ohh I, and I love you, always in my heart you’ll live on
You’ll live on
You’ll live on

2nd verse (Maître Gims) :
We walk pass each other without a look (a look)
I don’t know what to answer when people mention it (mention it)
Our circles try to reason us (reason)
I think it’s time for us to meet againg (meet)

Pre-chorus (Maître Gims) :
And I tried to hate you but the anger left
The good memories prevailed on the hate and the rancor

Chorus (Sia) :
I forgive you, you know not what you have done
Ohh I, I forgive you, now it’s time for me to move on
Ohh I, I forgive you, you did not see right from wrong
Ohh I, and I love you, always in my heart you’ll live on
You’ll live on
You’ll live on
