La Vie En Rose

Give your broken heart and soul to me

I’ll collect all the pieces that are left

Bind them together as one

From heaven to hell,

I promise that I can

Sway all these stern obstacles

When you get lost among the crowd

You don’t know where to go

Even how far you wander

You’ll come back home

I’m residing in your heart,

As there’s no place I ever dreamt to be

Even when I’m stranded afar

I believe, you’ll always find me

I’m by your side

“Your embrace is my new home”

I’ll savour this thought of mine

That here, I’m all assured

Can I heal you?

Can I stitch these wounds?

That made you so fragile

I’ll rout this darkness

Peneterated in your heart

Filled it with hatred,

Made you ambiguous

Only by the touch of this melody

The aura of my scent

Can cure your broken soul

I’ll bring you back to life

Through the song that I’ve been humming,

It’s the classic La Vie En Rose

But now, you’re gone

Leaving me with a glimpse of hope

That one day you’ll come back

Years from now, I’ll be old

Siting on an armchair beside the window

Watching these seasons go by

I’ll be waiting for the one

To come by that door

And ask me for a dance once more

I’m bewildered by this feeling

Right here just dreaming

Don’t let me go

Please, don’t let me go

I’m still that young naive girl who’s been dreaming

That one day you’ll come,

You’ll come again,

To take my hand and will ask

“Will you dance with me, madamousille?”

At that moment

I can feel your heart pounding so fast

Oh, I wish I could treasure this symphony forever

How I wanted this song to go on and stop never

You made me reminisce

The first time when we danced together

How thankful I’m for this beautiful infinity

Of the times when we’re young

And you hold on to me

We danced to the rhythm of this sweet tune

That untangled my twisted soul

You do remember, my love

That song was the classic La Vie En Rose
