Loin de moi ta lèvre qui ment

Language: French (Fran├žais)

Loin de moi ta lèvre qui ment,
Qui m'a trompé si doucement !
Si doucement.
Et tes yeux, beaux comme les cieux,
Eloigne aussi de moi tes yeux
Tes grands beaux yeux.
Mais rapporte-moi les baisers
Que sur ta lèvre j'ai posés
Tous mes baisers.
Mes baiser qui scellaient ma foi,
Tous mes vains baisers, rends-les moi, oh !
Rends-les moi !

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
