Lyrics (Lady Gaga's version) Edit

Des yeux qui font baisser les miens,
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche,
Voilà le portrait sans retouche
De l'homme auquel j'appartiens

[Refrain]:

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas,
Je vois la vie en rose.
Il me dit des mots d'amour,
Des mots de tous les jours,
Et ça me fait quelque chose.
Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause.
C'est lui pour moi,
Moi pour lui dans la vie,
Il me l'a dit, l'a juré
Pour la vie.
Et dès que je l'aperçois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

And when you speak angels sing from above,
Everyday words seem to turn in to love songs.
Give your heart and soul to me,
And life will always be,
La Vie en Rose.

A Star Is Born version Edit

Lady Gaga recorded "La Vie en Rose" for the soundtrack to the 2018 musical A Star Is Born.

In the film Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) first sees Ally in a drag club singing song and is entranced by her stage presence and musical chops.

Lyrics Edit

Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
Voilà le portrait sans retouches
De l'homme auquel j'appartiens

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose
Il me dit des mots d'amour
Des mots de tous les jours
Et ça m'fait quelque chose

Il est entré dans mon cœur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause
C'est lui pour moi, moi pour lui dans la vie
Il me l'a dit, l'a juré pour la vie

Et dès que je l'aperçois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon cœur qui bat

(Would anybody like some French tips tonight?)

C'est lui pour moi, moi pour lui dans la vie
Il me l'a dit, l'a juré pour la vie
Alors je sens en moi
La vie en rose
