A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

translation.babylon.com... :
Tornerai in English
"J'attendrai" (French for "I Will Wait") is a French popular song recorded by Rina Ketty in 1938. It is a translation of the Italian song "Tornerai" (Italian for "You Will Return") composed by Dino Olivieri (music) and Nino Rastelli (lyrics) in 1933, inspired from the Humming Chorus of Puccini's Opera "Madame Butterfly" ; the French lyrics were written by Louis Potérat. The song was also recorded in German under the title "Komm zurück", in Czech as "Verím vám", in Swedish as Blott för dig and in Polish as "Czekam cie" (with lyrics translated by Andrzej Wlast).
