Si le ciel entend ma prière
Mes amis ce soir je chante
Pour tous ceux qui n'ont rien, rien sur la terre
Pas d'amis pour les attendre
Les comprendre chaque jour
Leur donner un peu d'amour

Le bien et le mal se ressemblent
Et les hommes s'y laissent prendre
Je ne sais plus que faire et il me semble
Que l'enfer est sur la terre
Les amis qui m'entourent
Des amis d'un jour

Le bien et le mal se ressemblent
Et le ciel s'y laisse prendre
Un ami reste toujours un ami
Quand la vie n'a plus d'amour
Depuis toujours ma prière c'est d'avoir sur terre
Au dernier soir de ma vie, la main d'un ami
Pour dire adieu à la vie, les yeux d'un ami
