Ame ou sœur
Jumeau ou frère
De rien mais qui es-tu
Tu es mon plus grand mystère
Mon seul lien contigu
Tu m'enrubannes et m'embryonnes
Et tu me gardes à vue
Tu es le seul animal de mon arche perdue

Tu ne parles qu'une langue aucun mot déçu
Celle qui fait de toi mon autre
L'être reconnu
Il n'y a rien à comprendre
Et que passe l'intrus
Qui n'en pourra rien attendre
Car je suis seule à les entendre
Les silences et quand j'en tremble

Toi, tu es mon autre
La force de ma foi
Ma faiblesse et ma loi
Mon insolence et mon droit

Moi, je suis ton autre
Si nous n'étions pas d'ici
Nous serions l'infini

Et si l'un de nous deux tombe
L'arbre de nos vies
Nous gardera loin de l'ombre
Entre ciel et fruit
Mais jamais trop loin de l'autre
Nous serions maudits
Tu seras ma dernière seconde
Car je suis seule à les entendre
Les silences et quand j'en tremble

Toi, tu es mon autre
La force de ma foi
Ma faiblesse et ma loi
Mon insolence et mon droit

Moi, je suis ton autre
Si nous n'étions pas d'ici
Nous serions l'infini

Et si l'un de nous deux tombe

Song facts

In this song, Fabian and Maurane sing all the lyrics simultaneously. In the music video, the two singers are performing the song in front of each other, in a room full of mirrors. It deals with the themes of friendship and alter ego.

"Tu es mon autre" was performed many times with many other artists, including Fabian's long time collaborator Rick Allison (who participated in the song writing and production), during the singer's 2001/2002 tour. Both say to one another before the performance "[...] a song that I wrote for you, and that you wrote for me [...]". The song was thus available in its live version on Live 2002 (2002), En Toute Intimité and Un regard 9 Live (2009).

In Belgium (Wallonia), the single debuted at #6 on 2 November 2002, then reached number two for three weeks, being blocked by Las Ketchup's hit "The Ketchup Song" ; it totalled 14 weeks in the top ten and 21 weeks on the chart (top 40).
