The heart wants what it wants

The heart wants what it wants. There’s no logic to these things. You meet someone and you fall in love and that’s that.

The best love

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. 

 

~The Notebook

You’ve got to learn

You’ve got to learn
You’ve got to learn to show a happy face
Although you’re full of misery
You mustn’t show a trace of sadness
Never look for sympathy
You’ve got to learn although it’s very hard
The way of pocketing your pride
Sometimes face humiliation
While you were burning up inside
Facing reality is often hard to do
When it seems happiness is gone
You’ve got to learn to hide your tears
And tell your heart life must go on
You’ve got to learn to leave the table
When love’s no longer being served
To show everybody that you’re able
To leave without saying a word
You’ve got to learn to hide your sorrow
And go on living as before
What good is thinking of tomorrow
Who knows what it may have in store
You’ve got to learn to be much stronger
At times your head must rule your heart
You’ve got to learn from hard experience
And listen to advice
And sometimes pay the price
And learn to live with a broken heart
Songwriters: Charles Aznavour

Il faut savoir

Il faut savoir encore sourire
Quand le meilleur s’est retiré
Et qu’il ne reste que le pire
Dans une vie bête à pleurer
Il faut savoir, coûte que coûte
Garder toute sa dignité
Et malgré ce qu’il nous en coûte
S’en aller sans se retourner
Face au destin qui nous désarme
Et devant le bonheur perdu
Il faut savoir cacher ses larmes
Mais moi, mon cœur, je n’ai pas su
Il faut savoir quitter la table
Lorsque l’amour est desservi
Sans s’accrocher l’air pitoyable
Mais partir sans faire de bruit
Il faut savoir cacher sa peine
Sous le masque de tous les jours
Et retenir les cris de haine
Qui sont les derniers mots d’amour
Il faut savoir rester de glace
Et taire un cœur qui meurt déjà
Il faut savoir garder la face
Mais moi, je t’aime trop
Mais moi, je ne peux pas
Il faut savoir mais moi
Je ne sais pas…
IL FAUT SAVOIR de CHARLES AZNAVOUR

Forever Young

Forever Young

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay
Forever young
Forever young
Forever young
May you stay
Forever young
May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
And may you stay
Forever young
Forever young
Forever young
May you stay
Forever young
May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
May your song always be sung
And may you stay
Forever young
Forever young
Forever young
May you stay
Forever young
Songwriter: Bob Dylan
