I HAVE LIVED Charles Aznavour (France) When I take a one-way ticket to the road of no return, on a journey every man must make some day. When it's time to meet the Father and explains my sins away, I will tell him, yes I'll tell him I have lived. I have lived each single moment as a man of flesh and blood, with my soul and all my senses open wide. I have lived and tasted everything that called out to be tried and afraid of either heaven or of hell, never caring if I had a soul to sell. I was no more optimistic than my fellow man would be, I have always been an artist, not a saint. Now the moonlights are dimming, no more costumes, no more paint. I admit that I was selfish, I have lived. I have lived a life of running, after joy and happiness, with a new dream always tearing at my heart. Oh my Lord, I should have thought of my salvation at the start, but on Earth so many mornings I was told, you would take a sinner back into the fall. If my reasons seem too fragile and my words have no effect and forgiveness is the one thing I must win, I'll explain my live and show you all I am and all I've been and I'll say for my defence that I have lived. I have lived with soul on fire, with desire in my skin, in the name of all the women I have known. I have worshipped every shrine of love and if I must at all, I'll be ready then to kneel and pay the price, for the yesterdays I spent in Paradise. I have lived my life. ***** J'AI VÉCU Charles Aznavour (France) Quand je prendrai solitaire L'aller simple sans retour Que tout homme de la terre Prend un jour Pour aller voir Dieu le père Et lui conter mes vertus Je lui dirais sans manière J'ai vécu J'ai vécu la vie d'un être Pétri de chair et de sang J'ai vécu Chaque seconde de mon temps J'ai vécu pour tout connaître De ce qui m'était offert Sans souci d'aller au ciel ou en enfer Pensant que je n'avais rien de mieux à faire Ni plus ni moins optimiste Que le reste des humains J'ai mené la vie d'artiste Pas de saint Dés lors que s'éteint la piste Que le spectacle s'est tu Admettons qu'en égoïste J'ai vécu J'ai vécu la vie d'un être Qui n'aspirait qu'au bonheur J'ai vécu Jusqu'à m'en déchirer le coeur J'ai vécu, mon Dieu, peut-être Sans penser à mon salut Mais sur terre on m'avait affirmé que tu Laissais venir à toi les brebis perdues Si mes lettres de créances Semblaient minces et sans effet Si pour toucher sa clémence Je devais Justifier mon existence En détail par le menu Je dirais pour ma défense J'ai vécu J'ai vécu de feu dans l'âme Pour les filles au coeur chaud J'ai vécu Le désir planté dans la peau J'ai vécu au nom des femmes Pour l'amour et ses envies Croyant par moment toucher au paradis J'ai vécu Ma vie ***** HO VISSUTO Charles Aznavour (France) Quando prendero' un bel giorno, Gia' nel numero dei piu', La mia vita senza ritorno per lassu', Incontrando il patreterno, Umilmente, questo si, Potro' dirgli che ho vissuto:tuttoqui. Ho vissuto come un uomo di illusioni e realta', Ho vissuto ogni secondo d'ogni eta', Per conoscere del mondo tutto cio' che offriva a me O giocarmi il paradiso caso mai, Perche' questo era giusto secondo me. Ho vissuto da ottimista quanto ognuno che sta qui, Non da santo ma da artista questo si', Finche' son rimasto in pista ho vissuto, e come no? Se e' un discorso egoista io saro!... Ho vissuto ad inseguire sempre la felicita', Fino a quando tu non mi hai chiamato qua', Forse alla salvezza eterna io non ho pensato mai, Pero' in terra mi hanno sempre detto che La pecora smarrita la chiamavi a te. Se per scarse credenziali quando mi presentero', La clemenza celestiale non avro', Dettagliando ogni minuto del bel gioco che fini' Posso dire: "l'ho vissuto tutto qui". Ho vissuto i desideri che portavo con me, Come un fuoco sulla pelle e intorno a me, Ho vissuto per l'amore mio potere e schiavitu', E ho creduto al paradiso anche laggiu'. Consumando i giorni che ho vissuto, qui, Ho vissuto: si!
