You Are Love (Toujours Gai Mon Gher) Lyrics

by Janis Ian

What's the time?
Where's the place?
Why the line?
Where's the race?
just in time, I see your face
Toujours gai, mon cher

You are the star
that greets the sun
Shine across my distant sky
when night is done
You'll be the moon to light my way
Toujours gai, mon cher

It's not too late to start again
It's not too late
though when you go away the skies will grey again
In the time that remains,I will stay
Toujours gai, mon cher

No regret
for the light that will not shine
No regret,
but don't forget, the flame was mine and in another place,
in another time
Toujours gai, mon cher

It's not too late to start again
It's not too late
though when you go away
the skies will grey again
In the time that remains,
I will stay
Toujours gai, mon cher

Halfway measures go unsung
Take your pleasures while you're young
Just remember, when they're done,
Toujours gai, mon cher
