Megadeth - A Tout le Monde

Don't remember where I was
I realized life was a game

The more seriously I took things
The harder the rules became

I had no idea what it'd cost
My life passed before my eyes

I found out how little I accomplished
All my plans denied

So as you read this know my friends
I'd love to stay with you all

Smile when you think of me
My body's gone
That's all

A tout le monde (To all the world)
A tout mes amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I must leave)

These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free

If my heart was still alive
I know it would surely break

And my memories left with you
There's nothing more to say

Moving on is a simple thing
What it leaves behind is hard

You know the sleeping feel no more pain
And the living are scarred

A tout le monde (To all the world)
A tout mes amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I must leave)

These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free

(1st Solo)

So as you read
Know my friends
I'd love to stay with you all

Please smile,
Smile when you think about me
My body's gone
That's all

A tout le monde (To all the world)
A tout mes amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I must leave)

These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free

A tout le monde (To all the world)
A tout mes amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I must leave)

These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free...

(2nd solo and outro)

À Tout Le Monde is a song from Megadeth's fifth consecutive platinum album, Youthanasia. "À tout le monde" is French for "To everyone". The chorus of the song, "à tout le monde, à tous mes amis, je vous aime, je dois partir" translated to English is respectively: "To everyone, to all my friends, I love you all, I must leave". The song was accompanied by a music video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aU-dKoFZT0A), which MTV refused to play, thinking its lyrics were an endorsement of suicide. When asked about the lyrics of the song, Dave Mustaine stated in an interview in 1994: "It's not a suicide song. What it is, it's, you, it's when people have a loved one that dies and they end on a bad note, you know, they wish that they could say something to them. So this is an opportunity for the deceased to say something before they go. And it was my impression of what I would like to say to people, if I had say, 3 seconds to do so in life before I died I'd say to the entire world, to all my friends, I love you all, and now I must go. These are the last words I'll ever speak, and they'll set me free. I don't need to say I'm sorry, I don't have to say I'm going to miss you, or I'll wait for ya. You know, I'll just say I loved you all, good, bad and different, I loved you all." A new, faster version of "À Tout le Monde" included on Megadeth's eleventh album, United Abominations , called "À Tout le Monde (Set Me Free) " featuring Cristina Scabbia.
