La Vie en Rose

by Louiguy, lyrics by Edith Piaf ©1942

When he takes me in his arms and speaks to me soft and low,

I see life in rosey colors •

He tells me words of love, words of everyday

and it does something to me •

Into my heart, a piece of happiness has entered

for which I know the cause:

it´s him for me, me for him through life--

he told me, he swore it for life •

And when I´ve just caught a glance of him,

ah, I feel in me my heart beating •

The nights of love to die for • A grand happiness •

Boredom, sorrows are erased •

Happiness, happiness for my pleasure [him] •

When he takes me in his arms and speaks to me soft and low,

I see life in rosey colors •

 

(Repeat refrain)

--

Quand il me prend dans ses bras,

il me parle tout bas, je vois la vie en rose •

Il me dit des mots d'amour, des mots de tous les jours

et ça m'fait quelque chose • 

l est entré dans mon cœur une part de bonheur

dont je connais la cause:

c'est lui pour moi, moi pour lui dans la vie--

il me l'a dit, l'a juré pour la vie •

Et dès que je l'aperçois, alors,

je sens en moi mon cœur qui bat •

Des nuits d'amour à en mourir •

Un grand bonheur qui prend sa place •

Les ennuis les chagrins s'effacent •

Heureux, heureux pour mon plaisir 

Singable English Lyrics for

La Vie en Rose Refrain:

When he takes me in his arms

and whispers to me low,

I see life so rosy

When he tells me words of love

or just the everyday,

I see life so rosy

He brought joy into my heart

a little slice of bliss

And I know how:

“It's you for me,

me for you throughout life,”

That's what he said, he swore for ever!

And when I catch a glance of him,

I feel within my heart

It's him that beats within.
