Peurs :- Fears

What should we have done?
What could we have done?
No-one can do anything
That's fate

That's the way it is here
It's each for themselves
Life, gossip
Fear against fear

We thought she was strange
As soon as she arrived
With her own particular style
And her innocent look

She didn't talk much
Hardly a hello or goodbye
I warned the kids
We don't want any trouble

She wasn't ugly
I found her vulgar
Always the same clothes
Messy hair, peculiar appearence

Fear against fear, we're from here, she's from elsewhere
Fear against fear, she left one day
We're stuck with ourselves, fear against fear

We used to see light
So late, was she mad
What the hell was she doing?
She didn't have a TV

She didn't get any visitors
She didn't get any mail
She even had the cops
No, that was next door

I was told on good authority
That someone saw her once
In a car at night
Nothing surprises me anymore

They've got it under their skin
Like animals
That's what we were told
By a guy from the colonies

Fear against fear, we're from here, she's from elsewhere
Fear against fear, one day she left
We stayed here, so did our fears

What should we have done?
What could we have done?
No-one can do anything
That's fate

That's the way it is here
It's each for themselves
We don't ask anything

What do you think?
It's the same everywhere
Our eyes, our ears
Better shut them

Here everything is hard
We like locks
Not strangers

We thought she was strange
As soon as she arrived
With her own particular style
And her innocent look

She didn't talk much
Hardly a hello or goodbye
I warned the kids
We don't want any trouble

No trouble
