Jerry Friedman Lyr Req: La Vie en Rose (Edith Piaf) (41) RE: Lyrics wanted:French songs 13 Oct 98


One of my favorites! In case you wanted to know the meaning of the French words, Steve, here's my best shot, with a few places where I'm not sure. The title is especially hard to translate. "Life Rose-colored"? I'll try it less poetically as

Life in Pink

Eyes that make me lower mine
A laugh that gets lost (?) on his mouth
There's the picture without retouching
Of the man I belong to

When he takes me in his arms
[And?] he speaks quite low
I see life in pink
He says to me words of love
Words of every day
And that does something to me
He has entered my heart
A part of happiness (?)
That I know the cause of
It's him for me, me for him, for life
He said it to me, swore it to me, for life
And once I see him
Then I feel inside me
My heart beating

Nights of love to end no more (?)
A great happiness that takes its place
Annoyances, sorrows are erased
Happy, happy enough to die of

When he takes me in his arms, etc.
