  • Lyrics
  • The title of this song means literally "in love"; it was composed by French singer-songwriter Véronique Sanson. Originally the title track of her acclaimed 1972 album, a faithful English lyric was produced by Elton John collaborator Gary Osbourne, and the single, backed by "Rest My Head" was released on the Rocket Label by Kiki Dee in 1973. >>

  • Shaun from Warrington, United KingdomHauntingly beautiful.
  • Michael from Bradford, EnglandThe English lyric concerns a woman's first experience - but not the French. The French lyric is about a woman deeply in love (a forbidden love) but who fears that it will not last (Et je me demande si cet amour aura un lendemain
    = I wonder if this love will have a tomorrow).
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandA beautiful song about a woman's first sexual experience.
