Album: She: The Best Of Charles Aznavour (1974)
Charted: 1
  • She may be the face I can't forget
    A trace of pleasure or regret
    May be my treasure or the price I have to pay
    She may be the song that Salome sings
    May be the chill that autumn brings
    May be a hundred different things
    Within the measure of a day

    She may be the beauty or the beast
    May be the famine or the feast
    May turn each day into a heaven or a hell
    She may be the mirror of my dream
    A smile reflected in a stream
    She may not be what she may seem
    Inside her shell

    She who always seems so happy in a crowd
    Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
    No one's allowed to see them when they cry
    She may be the love that cannot hope to last
    May come to me from shadows of the past
    That I remember till the day I die

    She may be the reason I survive
    The why and wherefore I'm alive
    The one I'll care for through the rough and ready years
    Me, I'll take her laughter and her tears
    And make them all my souvenirs
    For where she goes I've got to be
    The meaning of my life is she, she
    Mmm, she Writer/s: Charles Aznavour, Herbert Kretzmer
