Martin Guerre Lyrics

Martin

All the insults and the names

The kicks, the tricks, the vicious games

To make a young man reach his prime

They say he's weak, they say he's snapped

A man who's scared, a man who's trapped

When all a young man needs is time

Let them try, with the thrill of the pack

Hold your breath till the day he gets back!

Enough, no more, I don't give a damn

Why stay, what for?

I know who I am

A man above the lie that they live

A man who'll love when he's ready to give

But I'll come back one day, after ten years away

And they'll stop and they'll say

Look! Look!

Look, it's Martin Guerre

We need him here, no need to fear, never despair

Yes! It's Martin Guerre

Back home at last, those from the past better beware

Strides through the town

Laughs, waves them away

They all think he must be the same

But by heaven they're sure to see there's more to Martin Guerre

Than a name

(Pierre appears)

And that bastard, Pierre

Holds my life in his hand

He's no uncle of mine

He can have all my land

The land he sold me for

May God condemn his soul to hell

And all of Artigat as well...

(the villagers appear, along with a man with his back

to the audience. Martin points at him.)

Look! It's Martin Guerre

Standing so brave, back from the grave, who else would dare

Yes! It's Martin Guerre

Back from the war, not like before

Of this I swear

He's seen it all, he's travelled the land

And look! Look what he became

And by heaven they're sure to see there's more to Martin Guerre

Just look, look at what he became

By heaven they're sure to see there's more to Martin Guerre

Than a name!
