Edith Piaf on YouTube

Nobody sings a song of love like her.
I’ve picked three tracks you haven’t heard before
To take us back again to where we were
When we first met.
Tu es partout. Je sais comment. La valse de l’amour.

If we had heard these then, would we have been
So bold as to believe love might stay true?
She says that love has nothing it can mean
Beyond its loss.
La valse de l’amour. Je suis content. Tu es partout.

The long run happened and we placed the bet.
We rolled the dice and saw them pitch and toss,
And still it seems we’re no more finished yet
Than these songs are:
La vie en rose. Ah! ça ira! Ne me quitte pas.
