C'est la vie
Have your leaves all turned to brown
Will you scatter them around you
C'est la vie
Do you love
And then how am I to know
If you don't let your love show for me
C'est la vie

Oh c'est la vie
Oh c'est la vie
Who knows, who cares for me
C'est la vie

In the night
Do you light a lover's fire
Do the ashes of desire for you remain
Like the sea
There's a love to deep to show
Took a storm before my love
Flowed for you
C'est la vie

Oh c'est la vie
Oh c'est la vie
Who knows, who cares for me
C'est la vie

Like a song
Out of tune and out of time
All I needed was a rhyme for you
C'est la vie
Do you give
Do you live from day to day
Is there no song I can play for you
C'est la vie

Oh c'est la vie
Oh c'est la vie
Who knows, who cares for me
C'est la vie

    General Commentthis became one of my absolute favorite songs in little over two minutes. its beautiful and an absolute marvel to listen to.

    i think the song is more about how much the singer loved his "love" no matter how off she was (out of tune and out of time). and he's asking for her to come back (is there no song i can play for you).

    c'est la vie is french, meaning it is the life.
    she was his life, he lost her, and desperately wants her back.
