"La Vie En Rose" as written by Mack David and Louiguy,....
Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose
When you kiss me, Heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose

When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart
A world where roses bloom

And when you speak
Angels sing from above
Every day words
Seem to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose

I thought that love was just a word
They sang about in songs I heard
It took your kisses to reveal
That I was wrong, and love is real

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose

When you kiss me, heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose
When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart
A world where roses bloom

And when you speak
Angels sing from above
Every day words
Seem to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose

    General Commenti like this song very much and i think that La Vie En rose means life in Roses since the "s" is not pronounsed in french thats why it sounds as "rose". this song is about two lovers that are deeply in love and holding each other turns into something so wonderful that even ordinary words turn into a beautiful song of love.

    General CommentMmm I think that "La vie en rose" should be translated as "the life in pink" (yeah, it sounds awful). This is a french expression that is used to describe when you're happy and feel optimistic with life in general. There's also the expression "La vie en noir" which is the opposite: pesimistic, when you're down. As you can see, French language is pure poetry.
