Aria Depuis le jour




Gustave Charpentier (1860-1956), Depuis le jour, Louise, 1900
Depuis le jour
où je me suis donnée,
toute fleurie semble ma destinée.
Je crois rêver
sous un ciel de féerie,
l'âme encore grisée
de ton premier baiser!
Quelle belle vie !
Mon rêve n'était pas un rêve !
Ah ! je suis heureuse !
L'amour étend sur moi ses ailes !
Au jardin de mon coeur
chante une joie nouvelle !
Tout vibre,
tout se réjouit de mon triomphe !
Autour de moi tout est sourire,
lumière et joie !
Et je tremble délicieusement
Au souvenir charmant
Du premier jour d'amour !
Quelle belle vie !
Ah! je suis heureuse ! trop heureuse...
Et je tremble délicieusement
Au souvenir charmant
Du premier jour d'amour !

Angels Eyes


Angels Eyes

(Angels) You are an angel, dare
You mess around down there
Arms open wide to save
Mankind you are depraved
What is wrong oh what?

(Judy) I'm in love

(Angels) You nut!

(Michael) Angel eyes
You've been crying lately
Paradise
Ain't like it used to be
Can't get to sleep
Can't face the light
Weep baby weep
You've no angel tonight

(Judy) Angel eyes
You've been crying lately
Paradise
Ain't like it used to be
Can't get to sleep
Can't face the light
Weep baby weep
You've no angel tonight

(Michael & You've been bad
Angels) You've been good
You've been around
Like a good angel should

(Judy) One more heart
One more town
Falling apart
When there's no one around

(Angels) Falling angel, angel...

(Michael & Judy) Angel eyes
You've been crying lately
All this time
Aren't you tired baby
Trying to fly when you
Don't have the height
Cry baby cry
You're no angel tonight

(Michael & Holy ground
Angels) Hollywood
You've been around
Like a good angel should

(Judy) One more heart
One more town
Falling apart
When there's no one around

(Angels) Falling angel, angel...

You've got to be kidding
Yes we know what you're
Thinking about but you'd
Better stop dreaming, Angel
Better stop by here and now
He's just an ordinary man
And you're all mixed up
Why are you listening to him?
Why say Angel - say Angel
Angel, Angel... oo - oo - oo

(Michael) You're no angel, baby
(Judy) You're no angel, baby

(Michael & Judy) Can't get to sleep
Can't face the light
Weep baby weep
You're no angel,
You're no angel tonight!
