Les Promesses D'amour translation of lyrics

Also known as Toutes ces promesses que l'on fait encore de nos jours lyrics.

English translation of Les Promesses D'amour by Enrico Macias
The promises of Love sung by the prophets
Are now nothing but revenge and conquest
This is the race in power, it is the revolution
And it is God who is killed by religion
Yesterday's promises remain a dead letter
And the desherites are still knocking at the door
All these crimes that go unpunished, yet revolent us
 
In the world today, tell me who hears them
All the promises we still make these days
In all the speeches, tell me who hears them
All those who are locked up for daring
Speak freely, tell me who hears them
 
Promises of hope and fraternity
We talk about it a lot to forget them better
In the name of misery, of peace, of money
Women and children sent to war
From Chile to Lebanon, from Ireland to desert
They are innocent people dying on our land
All these peoples subject to the ambition of the tyrants
 
In the world today, tell me who hears them
All the promises we still make these days
In all the speeches, tell me who hears them
All those who are locked up for daring
Speak freely, tell me who hears them
 
The promises of lovers, even when they are sincere
Once they're out of sight, they're just dreams
They only last for a single night
Of a Desir of spring, or a kiss flies
I see them every day, I see them by the thousands
Those love orphans that life has hurt
All these couples who have been destroyed, who leave us indifferent
 
In the world today tell me who hears them
All the promises we still make these days
In all the speeches, tell me who hears them
All those who are locked up for daring
Speak freely, tell me who hears them
 
Yesterday's promises seem derisory to me
When I see a beggar, sleeping on a sidewalk
An old man left behind with his memories
That we punish with old age, that we deprive of smile
The poets in prison, the condemned scientists
By the freed slave who no longer has pity
These forgotten promises, make me think very often
That one comes to Earth only to be an emigrant
 
All the promises we still make these days
In all the speeches, tell me who hears them
All those who are locked up for daring
Speak freely, tell me who hears them
