Yet another of the beautiful songs by my recently favorite French language singer, Angèle, has me confused by the lyrics. The song is Jalousie. Here is a link! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhhXegAbgrU.
The lyrics sing, "Jalousie me dit qu'elle est belle, qu'elle est belle" and later the same, except ending with either "qu'elle est là" or "qu'elle est seule."
If these mean, 'She is beautiful, she is here, she is alone' then what is the reason for the 'qu'? Why is it 'qu'elle' instead of just "Elle est belle" etc?
Second, how do you know whether "qu'elle est là" means 'she is here' versus 'she is there'? I thought here was 'ici'?
Again, thank you very much for helping me.
