French lyrics and English translation below. Vocabulary and an explanation of the translation and phrases will follow the video and lyrics translation. The great thing about this song is that it uses relatively simple vocabulary to convey the very deep and heartfelt experience of new love. This song captures so many of the small gestures that we associate with falling in love: feeling your heart race as soon as you spot your new love, looking away when they look at you, etc.
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche — this is a tough line to translate. I like the way she pairs these two lines. By coupling them she seems to be suggesting that both words of love and everyday words are equally precious when they come from the man she loves.
How romantic is that? What do you think of this translation? Do you have any additional questions? Leave them in the comments below! Thank you. November 30, at pm. Love what you have done — the Clash Of Principles - R.

Michael Rondas. November 21, at pm. Thank you so very much for your translation and interpretation and most of all for the passion you put into this. I am returning from a funeral of my grandmother during which my godmother her daughter sang this song. She sang it because it was the song that played when my grandmother met my grandfather. I have always felt this was one of the greatest love Paris-Méditerranée - Edith Piaf - La Vie En Rose of all time. You can only imagine that today has solidified this feeling in stone.

Simply because Black Hole - Ginger Meadows - The Death Of Ginger Meadows you learn a language, it teaches you literal translations only get you so far; in fact it is all about the art of interpretation and you did it wonderfully well. True art in my humble opinion. You may have written this many years ago, but I hope that so many years later these words of appreciation for the love of language still reach you.

Translating songs is an art and a science, and as a French learner myself for many years now I think enjoying French music is a great way to learn! Pedro Mendes. February 20, at pm.

I really appreciate the time you took to break down the different parts and explain them. Thank you for doing so. It was my great pleasure! David Cottam. July 11, at pm. I found your translation and discussion of the nuances in the poem perfect. I am trying to memorise the words in French because they have a simplicity and emotional directness that is very touching.
Thanks for your insights. Bruce P. July 16, at pm. Roland Michael Soucy. September 28, at am. Jerry Braunstein. March 12, at pm. Yes, leave la Vie en rose in French. Seeing life through rose colored glasses connotes hopeful pessimism — seeing life better than it really is. I believe the matter depends on the intent of the lyricist — which adds a mysterious note to a mystical, enchanting song. Oh interesting!
Thank you for sharing this. I may be due to update this translation a little bit and help with a bit more historical context and reference to other cultural touchstones. May 14, at am.

Marie Walsh. February 9, at Paris-Méditerranée - Edith Piaf - La Vie En Rose . I sing this song in French with only half an understanding of the words but it moved me nonetheless, never really knowing why. Having read your translation, I see now what I could not explain, that I am capable of feeling such passion. What a revelation! And so liberating! Norma Fredette Stankaitis.
March Paris-Méditerranée - Edith Piaf - La Vie En Roseat pm. Love it…nothing to add. It is a beautiful song in French. Loses a lot in CyborCosis - The KLF EP. Now that I have the translation, I will be singing it often. Merci beaucoup. Thank you so much. Yes songs are never as good in translation so I wanted to do my best to help English speakers understand this beautiful classic.
