Name this French pop song

I only know four things about the song I'm looking for:

It's a pop song from the 1990's. (I may have heard it on Danish Radio around 1993, but I'm not 100% sure about that).
The lyrics are in French.
The singer is male; I think he's a baritone.
The chorus is an elongated "toi" (which is French for "you"). Here's a sound clip of me trying to sing it.

Do you have any suggestions?

Response by poster: No it's not Feldman. If I recall correctly, the song I have in mind is slower and the singer has a deeper voice.

Response by poster: "Saudade" is the one - thanks, seawallrunner! (Also thanks to nightrecordings for their suggestion.)

You sang the chorus perfectly, and it was a big hit in Europe.
