That Return to Paradis

WITH THE RECENTLY RELEASED "LOVE SONG" coming as a close second, "Dès que j'te vois" still holds the top spot as my favorite track of the gap-toothed beauty adorning H&M billboards this season. Released as the second single of the artist's 2007 album Divinidylle, the song sings of what? No clue, I can't seem to get a decent translation.

Better known as the long-term ex of Johnny Depp, as well as the face of various Chanel campaigns, Vanessa Paradis comes into popular consciousness this spring for the budget-friendly fashion giant promoting its sustainable efforts. For the Conscious Collection campaign film, the singer-actress wanders through an overgrown paradise of sorts, sprouting Jumanji-like from an acorn dropped in the basement. In true fantastic style, her outfit changes in each room, featuring clothing from the eco-conscious line.

And if anyone can help me know what "Dès que j'te vois" is about, that would be very much appreciated. Merci!
