Chapitre 7 : les blessures de l'intime

Les survivants, femmes comme hommes, ont souvent subi des violences sexuelles dans les camps de Libye. Sophia a rencontré son premier amour en Italie. À travers une chanson, elle a cherché à confier les pages les plus sombres de son exil.

HOW CAN YOU LOVE
Texte Sophia, musique Mathias Duplessy

Just before I came to France
I never dated anybody
But then I met this guy
And I fell in love

But I have to tell him now
What is my true story
It’s a story of suffering
Something I never told

Tell me how can you love
When nobody’s ever loved you
Tell me how can you love
When all you’ve met in life is abuse and pain

Truth is all I know of men
Is what those guards in Libya 
Did to me again at night 
And every night I prayed

Those men come back in my dreams
But now I’m strong and healthy
So I kick them out in the night
Until I’m free to breathe

Tell me how can you love
When nobody’s ever loved you
Tell me how can you love
When all you’ve met in life
is abuse and pain

So I pray one day my nightmares 
Will turn into dreams
And that day I know for sure 
I’ll be ready to love
