Louis Armstrong – La Vie En Rose lyrics

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 tho 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
Everyday words seem... To turn into love songs

Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose

    This is the most beautiful song, I first heard it on wall e and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I think it was done in french first by edith piaf which is a lovely version, but the way louis sings it is just magical, he had such a smooth and rich voice. Hearing this song is like stepping back into the past when love meant romance and respect and a deep emotion towards someone, not songs of lust and self satisfaction like today. So although it's a beautiful song, it's also a little bit sad.
