All I'm saying is you've never seen me crying and eating tacos at the same time.

That is a beautiful piece of torch singing Anna! Birken is hot stuff to my ears (and eyes).

The next post will have another beautiful French piece I love by Charles Trenet.

The Lyrics in French thne in English:
Que reste-t-il de nos amours ?
Ce soir, le vent qui frappe à ma porte
me parle des amours mortes
devant le feu qui s'éteint.
Ce soir, c'est une chanson d'automne
dans la maison qui frissonne
et je pense aux jours lointains.

Que reste-t-il de nos amours ?
Que reste-t-il de ces beaux jours ?
Une photo, vieille photo
de ma jeunesse.
Que reste-t-il des billets doux ?
Des mois d'avril, des rendez-vous ?
Un souvenir qui me poursuit,
sans cesse.

Bonheur fané, cheveux au vent,
baisers volés, rêves mouvants.
Que reste-t-il de tout cela ?
Dites-le-moi.

Un petit village, un vieux clocher,
un paysage si bien caché,
et dans un nuage le cher visage
de mon passé.

Les mots, les mots tendres qu'on murmure,
les caresses les plus pures,
les serments au fond des bois,
les fleurs qu'on retrouve dans un livre,
dont le parfum vous enivre,
se sont envolés. Pourquoi ?

English:
What remains of our loves?
Versions: #1#2
Tonight, the wind knocking at my door
speaks to me of past loves
before the dying fire
tonight, an autumn song
quavers through the house
and I think of those bygone days

refrain:
What remains of our loves?
What of those fine days of yore?
A photo, an old photo, of my youth.
What remains of the love letters
the months of April, the rendez-vous?
A memory that pursues me without fail
a shadow of happiness, windblown hair
stolen kisses, moving dreams
what remains of all these things
do tell me?
a little village, an old bell tower
fields and meadows, well tucked away
and in a cloud, the cherished face
of my past days.

The words, the tender words that are murmured
the caresses purest of the pure
the vows exchanged deep in the woods
the flowers one finds among the pages of a book
whose perfume quakes and stirs
have all blown away, oh why?

Only an elderly French male could write such a song in their old age. It contrasts so well with Maurice Chevaliers, "Thank Heaven for Little Girls"
