From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_It_Be_Me_%28song%29

"Let It Be Me" is a popular song originally published in 1955 as "Je t'appartiens". The score was written and first recorded by Gilbert Bécaud. The lyrics were penned in French by Pierre Delanoë. The English language version used lyrics by Mann Curtis and was performed in 1957 by Jill Corey in the television series Climax!. Corey's version, with orchestration by Jimmy Carroll, was released as a single and was moderately successful. The most popular version of "Let It Be Me" was released in 1960 by The Everly Brothers. It reached 7th position on the Billboard Hot 100.[1] The harmony arrangement of this version was often emulated in subsequent remakes.

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 04/23/18:

Due to a job transfer, Brian moved from his hometown to New York City. Being that he had a very comprehensive health history, he brought along all of his medical paperwork when it came time for his first check up with his new doctor. The doctor kept glancing at Brian as he reviewed the medical paperwork.

After browsing through the extensive medical history, the doctor stared at Brian for a few moments and said, ” Well there’s one thing I can say for certain, you sure look better in person than you do on paper!”

Je T'appartiens

Assise à ta place
Dans cette maison de glace
Je compte un à un mes torts
Je vois ces carafes
Remplies du vide
Qui transperce mon corps
Et toutes mes nuits se fondent
Jamais tes yeux ne tombent
De mon coeur qui succombe
à ton départ, mais...
Je t'appartiens
Comme l'orque et la mer ne font qu'un
Elles n'aiment qu'une seule fois
Puis s'échouent comme on se noie

Des projets, des ríves
S'arrachent et j'en crève
Je ne vis plus, je meurs
Míme en surface
Te voir, me glace
Et m'éventre le coeur
Et toutes les nuits se fondent
Dans tes bras une autre tombe
Je méprise míme son ombre
Et ton départ, mais...

Refrain

Elles n'aiment qu'une seule fois

(poème 2)
 


Let It Be Me (Je T'appartiens)

Written by Gilbert Bécaud,
(24 Oct 1927 – 18 Dec 2001)

Mann Curtis,

and Pierre Delanoë
(16 Dec 1918 - 27 Dec 2006)

(The Everly Brothers, 1960)


God bless the day I found you
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you
Let it be me

Don't take this heaven from one
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever
Let it be me

Each time we meet, love,
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
Tell me, what would life be?

So never leave me lonely
Tell me you love me only
And that you'll always
Let it be me

 

Je T'appartiens (Translation)

I belong to you
I sit where you stood
Into these empty rooms
I wonder where we went wrong
I try to forget
Drink you out of my head
Still I can hear the sound
Here comes the dawn again
I lie awake in bed
This heart of mine has come undone
Because you're gone, still...
I belong to you
Like the sea and orca are one
They love only once
And then succumb on the shore

The dreams that we planned
Suddenly just end
How do I stay alive ?
I freeze in place
At the sight of your face
It's killing me inside
Here comes the dawn again
In your arms, another flame
I despise her every part of her
And your betrayal, still...

Chorus

They love only once

(2nd poem)
