La Vie En Rose Edith Piaf

During the “journée de la Francophonie 2012″ in the French cultural center of Jogjakarta, Indonesia, I sang several french songs with my band. We had something like 4 rehearsals together before and it was our first concert.
La vie en Rose, Edith Piaf is one of my favorite French songs, I could sing it over and over without getting sick of it.

And here go the lyrics

Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
Un rir’ qui se perd sur sa bouch’,
Voilà le portrait sans retouch’,
De l’homme auquel j’appartiens.

Quand il me prend dans ses bras,
Qu’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,
Il est entré dans mon coeur
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 coeur qui bat.

Des nuits d’amour à plus finir
Un grand bonheur qui prend sa place
Les ennuis, les chagrins s’effacent,
Heureux, heureux à en mourir

Quand il me prend dans ses bras,
Qu’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,
Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur,
Dont je connais la cause,
C’est toi pour moi,
Moi pour toi, dans la vie
Tu me l’as dit, l’as juré pour la vie,
Et dès que je t’aperçois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat.

  1. Beautiful. Wish the sound were better on my computer– you have a wonderful voice.
    And thanks for following my blog. I have some Cat Stevens on there. Adore him.

      Thanks for your words, they are going straight to my heart!
      Concerning the sound, I’m affraid it’s not about your computer but about the video itself.
      I will check your Cat Stevens’ stuff as I really like this artist.
      Thanks for following me too.

  2. OMG MOI AUSSI J’AIME BIEN “La Vie En Rose”
    Did you arrange the band’s parts? I love that it’s a more perky sound than the original.
    You sing so beautifully!! :-D

      Actualy, tha bass player use to play it with another singer. She sings in English and in this kindda bossa way. Some records do exist like that but I can’t tell you any by heart. I was curious to sing it in this style for the first time and actualy, I might like it better than the soft and original version.

  3. Beautiful rendition. sniff. I have never heard it “live” before.
