I learnt this song at the suggestion of Michael Menager, I actually thought I would never go near it, because it is Piaf! But as I was about to travel to France to write the album of songs in French it seemed a good idea to put some classics under my belt, for many reasons, for the audience, to understand how french is sung (important when on mission to write french songs hahaha), and this one particularly as it is one of the most beautiful love songs in the world. Have you ever looked up the meaning of the lyrics? It is the most straight forward lyric - That absolute moment when you are in love and the world is unbelievable - He has entered into my heart, a piece of happiness, the cause of which I know full well… The title means life is rosy, which still does not describe what the whole song means, like wearing rose coloured glasses and everything shines because of how you feel.
Anyway, I’m sure the melody describes the lyrics even if you don’t understand them, what a gorgeous song. As a love-song writer (it seems..) I am glad I learnt it, it is the ultimate!
