Et Si Tu N’existais Pas

Et si tu n’existais pas
Dis-moi pourquoi j’existerais?
Pour traîner dans un monde sans toi
Sans espoir et sans regret
Et si tu n’existais pas
J’essayerais d’inventer l’amour
Comme un peintre qui voit sous ses doigts
Naître les couleurs du jour
Et qui n’en revient pas

Et si tu n’existais pas
Dis-moi pour qui j’existerais?
Des passantes endormies dans mes bras
Que je n’aimerais jamais
Et si tu n’existais pas
Je ne serais qu’un point de plus
Dans ce monde qui vient et qui va
Je me sentirais perdu
J’aurais besoin de toi

Et si tu n’existais pas
Dis-moi comment j’existerais?
Je pourrais faire semblant d’être moi
Mais je ne serais pas vrai
Et si tu n’existais pas
Je crois que je l’aurais trouvé
Le secret de la vie, le pourquoi
Simplement pour te créer
Et pour te regarder

Et si tu n’existais pas
Dis-moi pourquoi j’existerais?
Pour traîner dans un monde sans toi
Sans espoir et sans regret
Et si tu n’existais pas
J’essayerais d’inventer l’amour
Comme un peintre qui voit sous ses doigts
Naître les couleurs du jour
Et qui n’en revient pas

IF THERE WERE NO YOU
–––––––

If you did not exist
Tell me why I would exist
To wander in a world without you
Without hope and without regret

And if you did not exist
I would try to invent the love
As a painter who sees under his fingers
The birth of the colors of a day
And which does not return from there

And if you did not exist
Tell me for whom I would exist
The passer-bies asleep in my arms
Whom I would never love

And if you did not exist
I would only be one more point
In this world which comes and which goes
I would feel lost,
I would need you

And if you did not exist
Tell me how I would exist
I could pretend to be me
But I would not be true

And if you did not exist
I think that I would have found
The secret of life, and why to live
Just to create you
And to look at you

O voce greceasca… sau o muza?

Nana Mouskouri (in Greek, Nάνα Μούσχουρη), born as Ioanna Mouskhouri on October 13, 1934, in Chania, Crete, Greece, is a singer. She was known as Nana to her friends and family as a child. (Note that in Greek her surname is pronounced with the stress on the first syllable rather than the second.) She has recorded in many different languages, including Greek, French, English, German, Italian, Spanish, among others.

Mouskouri’s family lived in Chania, Crete, where her father, Constantine, worked as a film projectionist in a local cinema. Her mother, Alice also worked in the same local cinema as an usherette. When Mouskouri was three, her father moved the family to Athens. Mouskouri’s family worked extremely hard in order to send Nana and her elder sister, Jenny, to the prestigious Athens Conservatoire. Mouskouri had displayed exceptional musical talent from the age of 6. However her sister, Jenny, initially appeared to be the more gifted of the two. In fact Mouskouri has one vocal cord that is thicker than the other. This unusual condition accounts for her unique voice, both speaking and singing.

In 1950, she was accepted at the Conservatoire. She studied classical music with an emphasis on singing opera. After eight years at the Conservatoire, Mouskouri was encouraged by her friends to experiment with jazz music. She soon began singing with her friends’ jazz group at night and they even managed to get a radio slot. However, when Mouskouri’s Conservatory professor found out about Mouskouri’s involvement with a genre of music that he considered to be absolutely worthless, he flew into a fury and prevented her from sitting her end-of-year exams. Mouskouri left the Conservatoire and began performing at the Zaki club in Athens.
