Édith Piaf - La vie en rose (English translation)

English translation

La vie en rose

With eyes which make mine lower,
A smile which is lost on his lips,
That's the unembellished portrait
Of the man to whom I belong.
 
When he takes me in his arms
He speaks to me in a low voice,
I see life as if it were rose-tinted.
 
He whispers words to declare to me his love
Words of the everyday
And that does something to me.
 
He has entered into my heart
A piece of happiness
the cause of which I know full well.
 
It's him for me, me for him in life
He said that to me, swore to me "forever".
 
And as soon as I see him
So I feel in me
My heart which beats
 
May the nights on which we make love never end,
A great joy which takes its place
The trouble, the grief are removed
Content, content to die of it
 
When he takes me in his arms
He speaks to me in a very low voice,
I see life as if it were rose-tinted.
 
He whispers words to declare to me his love
Words of the everyday
And that does something to me.
 
He has entered into my heart
A piece of happiness
the cause of which I recognise.
 
It's him for me, me for him in life
He said that to me, swore to me forever.
 
And as soon as I see him
So do I feel in me
My heart which beats
