In the song "Ava" by the francophone Canadian singer Coeur de Pirate, she uses this lyric:
Oh, l’aime si tu veux, mais son rire laisse une trace
This sounds like an imperative construction, since there is no subject present and a command would make sense in this context. As I understand it, positive imperatives with object pronouns require inversion, so the expected form should be:
aime-le si tu veux
Why is the pronoun le before the verb in the lyric instead of after?
