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 Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 04/24/19, 5:15 AM:
 

  Good morning on another Hump Day. It's going to be hot and more humid today as the throes of summer begin to be felt here and once they start, they stick around for nearly six months. But I am very blessed to still be able to say my homestead is rural and I can smell the honeysuckle in the air and watch the eagles soar. Yes, like everything else it will change over time and those who know no other way won't miss it, but it will always be in my soul. There is nothing to match a sunrise through the forest or over the ocean, for that matter, for it is timeless, majestic and shows so beautifully what a gracious and loving God we have.

I hope you are all blessed today, take time to smell the roses and just know that the beauty of nature around you is just a small taste of what is in store when the Lord decides it's time to call us home. Have a wonderful day and enjoy life. It's a very special gift we have been given.

 
 

   Thank you, Jimmy!


 From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 04/23/19, 12:19 PM:

  For all my friends who are dealing with this...

      Thank you so much, Jean!

 
 


From Carlene Matthews Vannoy ('60 / '64) of VA - 04/23/18:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 04/23/19:

We took the kids to one of those restaurants where the walls are plastered with movie memorabilia. I went off to see the hostess about reserving a table. When I returned, I found my 10-year-old granddaughter staring at a poster of Superman standing in a phone booth.

She looked puzzled. "She doesn't know who Superman is?" I asked my wife.

"Worse," my wife replied. "She doesn't know what a phone booth is."

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

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)
