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.
