A song written for me

Well, not really. This song is from 1993 but it is called Je M'appelle Hélène (My name is Helen in French)!!! I've known this song for about seven years now and I absolutely love it! Here's the original music video:
video
Hélène Rolles - Je M'appelle Hélène 


Then as I was looking up the video on youtube, I came across the chinese version! It's not from the direct translation of the original version but ironically it's exactly how I feel right now. This will be my song on repeat for the next while hehe. Sorry for those who can't understand Mandarin =( But isn't the melody itself so soothing?

video
Joi Chua (蔡淳佳) - 依恋

Don't worry though, I have the English translation of the French version =)

Helen
My name is Helen
I am a girl like the others


I have my joys, my sorrows
They complete my life
Like you, I would like to find love
Simply to find love


Helen
My name is Helen
I am a girl like the others


If my nights are full
Dreaming dreams of poems
I do not have anything else
I would like to find love
Simply to find love


And even
If one sees me in all the newspapers each week
Nobody awaits me the evening when I return late
Nobody makes my heart beat when the projectors die out


Helen
My name is Helen
I am a girl like the others
I would like to find love
Simply to find love


And even
When on TV
You look at me
To smile and sing
Nobody awaits me the evening when I return late
Nobody makes my heart beat when the projectors die out


Helen
My name is Helen
I am a girl like the others


Helen
And all my sorrows
Will find the lapse of memory
One day or the other
When I would find love
When I would find love
