Je t’aime


The sun rises in France, it is the normal way
As madams and monsieurs slowly begin their day
Children run in the street, lovers walk hand in hand
As a phrase is softly whispered across the gentle land

Je t'aime, Je t'aime, such a common phrase
A whisper between lovers, a sound from childhood days
The phrase is handed down, we carry it in our hearts
From generation to generation, each time the cycle restarts

From mother to child, from child back again
Such is the cycle of Je t'aime, ending where it began
Three common words apply to adults and infants,too
One word, such a common phrase, for Je t'aime means "I love you"
