  • C'est la vie
    Have your leaves all turned to brown
    Will you scatter them around you
    C'est la vie

    Do you love
    And then how am I to know
    If you don't let your love show for me
    C'est la vie

    In the night
    Do you light a lover's fire
    Do the ashes of desire for you remain

    Like the sea
    There's a love too deep to show
    Took a storm before my love flowed for you
    C'est la vie

    Like a song
    Out of tune and out of time
    All I needed was a rhyme for you
    C'est la vie

    Do you give
    Do you live from day to day
    Is there no song I can play for you

  • Bill from UsYou see kids, in the 70's a lot of young people smoked dope, and they layed around and listened to records on the stereo all night, and that's how we got bands like these.
