Des Hommes

deshommes

I've written the lyrics of this song in January 1992 after I watched on TV news a documentary showing children and women killed or suffering during the Yugoslav War.
I decided, as it was particularly moving me, that I should try to sing the lyrics by myself.
I then composed the music tracks, and sang, as I can do, because I'm not a singer…

You will find three different versions of "Des Hommes": each one has good and bad...
I'm just undecided about which one sounds best.

Here are "Des Hommes" tracks.
It starts with the latest 2004 version, ending with the oldest one.
You'll find below the lyrics too.

"Des Hommes" (lyrics and music ©EGS Music)

"La vie qui s'est éteinte, n'est qu'un meurtre de plus,
Haineux que plus rien n'arrête, Mort qui plane au-dessus,
Des Hommes,
Qui ne sont même plus des hommes,
Qui se demandent pourquoi?
Qui font des villes fantômes,
Et qui crèvent de froid.

Môme, jouant sous les pluies de bombes,
Fais gaffe où tu mets les pieds,
Au tireur tapis dans l'ombre,
Qui t'abattra sans regrets.

Femmes, les yeux emplis de larmes,
Implorez vos amants,
De laisser tomber les armes,
Pour sauver vos enfants,

Des hommes…"
