(translation in English below)

Pour un instant
Être libre
Comme le vent
Pas difficile
Donne-moi la main
Sur la colline
Le vent nous attend


Ferme les yeux
Ouvre les bras
Tant que tu peux
Il saura
Si tu es prêt
Si tu y crois
Je compterai
Jusque 3

Et 1, 2, 3!


Tous les enfants
Petits et grands
Y croient un peu
Pourquoi pas toi?
C'est possible
C'est possible si tu le veux
Possible de défier la Terre
Possible d'être libre
Libre comme l'Air?


Je fais le voeu
D'une envolée
Rien que nous deux
Un vol planné
Quittons la Terre
Brisons nos chaînes
Déploie tes ailes
Le vent t'emmène

(enfants au loin) "Si tu es prêt
Si tu y crois
Il va compter
Jusque 3" x 3

(quick meaning in English)

Imagine, just for a moment, you can be as free as the wind. It is not hard to do, give me your hand, on the mountain the wind gets up.

Close your eyes, open your arms, as wide as you can, he will know. If you're ready, if you believe, I'll count up to three. 1, 2, 3!

All the kids believe in it. It is possible if you want. Possible to defy the ground, possible to be free. Free like the Air.

I make a wish, to fly with you, just you and me, a gliding fun. Let's leave Earth, and break our chains, open your wings, and come with me.

(children chanting, yet to come) If you're ready, he will know, he will count, up to three. 1, 2, 3! (x3)
