Let It Be Me


Original Version:
Gilbert Bécaud

I bless the day I found you
I want my arms around you
And so I beg you: Let it be me.

Don't take this heaven from one
If you must cling someone
Now and forever, let it be me.

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

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