This beautiful song

Today I wake up with this song:

I like so much this version but the original one is from Charles Aznavour and I know it from so many years ago I really can't count them.

You can ear it here by Aznavour:

More about the song here, that was used several times in movies:



(Tous Les Visages de L'Amour)

Elvis Costello - from Notting Hill Soundtrack
Written by Charles Aznavour and Herbert Kretzmer

She may be the face I can't forget
The trace of pleasure or regret
Maybe my treasure or the price I have to pay
She may be the song that summer sings
May be the chill that autumn brings
May be a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day

She may be the beauty or the beast
May be the famine or the feast
May turn each day into a Heaven or a Hell
She may be the mirror of my dreams
A smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem
Inside her shell....

She, who always seems so happy in a crowd
Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
No one's allowed to see them when they cry
She maybe the love that cannot hope to last
May come to me from shadows in the past
That I remember 'till the day I die

She maybe the reason I survive
The why and wherefore I'm alive
The one I care for through the rough and ready years

Me, I'll take the laughter and her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes I've got to be
The meaning of my life is
Oh, she....

So beautiful.
I think it's one of the most beautiful musics ever made.

Hello! I'm a Brazilian journalist and I came to your blog by chance while researching “alfazema” for my website, gobrazil.about.com. I’m delighted. What a wonderful blog! I also love this song by Charles Aznavour and often listen to it while I’m working. Thank you for the inspiration and the words about family, children and God. I’m the mother of a wonderful 12-year old boy and reading your blog was a blessing.
Tudo de bom e Deus abençoe muito sua família!
