Nina Simone – Let It Be Me lyrics
Gilbert Becaud, M. Curtis, Pierre Delanoe

I bless the day I found you,
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you, let it be me.

Don't take this heaven from one,
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever, let it be me.

Each time we meet, love,
I find complete love.
Without your sweet love
What would life be?

So never leave me lonely,
Tell me you'll love me only
And that you'll always let it be me.

If for each bit of gladness
Someone must taste of sadness
I'll bear the sorrow, let it be me.

No matter what the price is
I'll make no sacrifices.
Through each tomorrow let it be me.

To you I'm praying,
Hear what I'm saying.
Please, let your heart beat
For me, just me.

And never leave me lonely,
Tell me you'll love me only
And that you'll always let it be me,
Let it be me.

Original French lyrics

Comme l'argile
L'insecte fragile
L'esclave docile
Je t'appartiens

De tout mon⌦㔲㬴tre
Tu es le seul ma"tre
Je dois me soumettre
Je t'appartiens

Si tu condamnes
Jetant mon ‰me
Au creux des flammes
Je n'y peux rien1

Avec les peines
L'amour et la haine
Coulant dans mes veines
Je t'appartiens

Que puis-je faire
Pour te satisfaire
Patron de la terre
Sur mon chemin

Comme les anges
Chanter tes louanges
Mais je ne suis pas un ange
Tu le sais bien

Je ne suis qu'un homme
Rien qu'un pauvre homme
Je t'aime comme
Comme un copain

Souvent je pense
Que dans ton immense
Palais de silence
Tu dois⌦㔲㬴tre bien
