    Default A quoi ça sert l’amour? - Théo Sarapo & Edith Piaf

    Help me please

    A quoi ça sert, l’amour?
    On raconte toujours
    Des histoires insensées
    A quoi ça sert d’aimer?

    L’amour ne s’explique pas!
    C’est une chose comme ça!
    Qui vient on ne sait d’où
    Et vous prend tout à coup.

    Moi, j’ai entendu dire
    Que l’amour fait souffrir,
    Que l’amour fait pleurer,
    A quoi ça sert d’aimer?

    L’amour, ça sert à quoi?
    A nous donner d’la joie
    Avec des larmes aux yeux…
    C’est triste et merveilleux!

    Pourtant on dit souvent
    Que l’amour est décevant
    Qu’il y a un sur deux
    Qui n’est jamais heureux…

    Même quand on l’a perdu
    L’amour qu’on a connu
    Vous laisse un gout de miel -
    L’amour c’est éternel!

    Tout ça c’est très joli,
    Mais quand tout est fini
    Il ne vous reste rien
    Qu’un immense chagrin…

    Tout ce qui maintenant
    Te semble déchirant
    Demain, sera pour toi
    Un souvenir de joie!

    En somme, si j’ai compris,
    Sans amour dans la vie,
    Sans ses joies, ses chagrins,
    On a vécu pour rien?

    Mais oui! Regarde-moi!
    A chaque fois j’y crois!
    Et j’y croirait toujours…
    Ça sert à ça l’amour!

    Mais toi, tu es le dernier!
    Mais toi’ tu es le premier!
    Avant toi y avait rien
    Avec toi je suis bien
    C’est toi que je voulais!
    C’est toi qu’il me fallait!
    Toi que j’aimerais toujours…
    Ça sert à ça l’amour!

    Edith Piaf & Theo Sarapo - What Is Love For?

    Theo Sarapo:
    What is love for?
    People keep on telling
    Foolish stories about it
    What's the need to love?

    Edith Piaf:
    Love can't be explained
    It's just a thing
    That comes from who knows where
    And takes you away all of a sudden

    Theo Sarapo:
    I was told
    That love causes pain
    That love makes people cry
    What's the need to love?

    Edith Piaf:
    Love, what is it for?
    It is for bringing joy
    And tears in our eyes
    It's sad and wonderful

    Theo Sarapo:
    And yet people often say
    That love is disappointing
    One out of the two
    Is never happy

    Edith Piaf:
    Even once you lost it,
    The love you once knew
    Leaves a taste of honey
    Love is eternal

    Theo Sarapo:
    All this is so pretty,
    But once it's all over
    You no longer have nothing
    But a huge pain

    Edith Piaf:
    Everything that for now
    Seems to you agonizing
    Tomorrow, will be to you
    A memory of joy

    Theo Sarapo:
    All in all, tell me if I got it right
    Without these joys and pains
    Life is useless

    Edith Piaf:
    Of course, look at me
    I believe in it every time
    And I'll always believe in it
    That's what love is for

    But you're the last one
    But you're the first one
    Before you, there was nothing
    With you, I feel so good

    You're the one I wanted
    You're the one I needed
    You who I will always love
    That's what love is for

    What good is love?
    People are always telling
    Crazy stories.
    What good is love?

    Love can’t be explained,
    It just is.
    It comes from who knows where
    And hits you all of a sudden.

    I’ve heard it said
    That love makes you suffer,
    That love makes you cry.
    What good is love?

    What good is love?
    To give us joy
    With tears in our eyes;
    It’s both sad and wonderful!

    Yet, it’s often said
    That love is disappointing,
    That one out of two
    Is never happy.

    Even after you’ve lost it,
    The love that you’ve known
    Leaves a taste of honey;
    Love is eternal.

    All this is nice,
    But when it’s all done,
    All you’re left with
    Is intense grief.

    Everything that now
    Seems to tear you apart,
    Tomorrow
    Will be a joyful memory!

    In short, if I’ve understood,
    Without love in your life,
    Without its joy, its grief,
    You’ve lived in vain?

    For sure! Look at me!
    Each time I believe in it!
    And I’ll always believe in it …
    That’s what’s good about love!

    But you, you’re the last!
    But you, you’re the first!
    Before you there was nothing,
    With you I’m whole.

    It’s you that I’ve wanted,
    It’s you that I’ve needed
    You that I’ll love forever ...
    That’s what’s good about love!
