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 CommentFor me, this song has a double meaning.
    It describes how I felt when my marriage hit the rocks & when I separated from my wife. Through all of this I wondered if she had any feeling left for me (Do the ashes of desire for you remain?) It seemed that nothing I did made the slightest difference. (Is there no song I can play for you?)
    It also makes me think of a girl I had a huge crush on many years ago. (She eventually married someone else.)
    It also reminds me of my latest crush. I met her online. Because we live rather far apart, the chances of meeting in person are slim. I think she may have similar feelings for me, but she hasn't said so. (Do you love/ And then how am I to know/ If you don't let your love show for me.) When she faced some serious personal problems awhile ago, I realized how strongly I felt & I wanted to come to her rescue. (Took a storm before my love flowed for you...) I know that there are so many things working against us & that it might never work out any way. (Like a song/ Out of tune and out of time...)
    Sorry for running on so much. This is such a beautiful & haunting song & it really speaks to me on a personal level.

    Who knows, who cares for me
