She Lyrics

Artist: Elvis Costello
Album: She

She may be the face I can't forget
The trace of pleasure or regret
Maybe my treasure or the prize I have to pay
She may be the song that summer sings
Maybe the children autumn brings
Maybe a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day

She may be the beauty or the beast
Maybe the famine or the feast
May turn each day into a Heaven or a Hell
She may be the mirror of my dreams
A smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem
Inside her shell....

She, who always seems so happy in a crowd
Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
No one's allowed to see them when they cry
She maybe the love that cannot hope to last
May come to leap from shadows in the past
That I remember 'till the day I die

She maybe the reason I survive
The why and wherefore kind of life
The one I care for through the rough and ready years

Me, I'll take the laughter and your tears
And make them all my souvenirs
And when she goes I've got to be
The meaning of my life is
Oh, she....

Esta canción es demasiado "un lugar llamado Nothing Hill"...

"MAY BE," (two words, not maybe,) the "PRICE" I have to pay, (not prize.)
"MAY BE the CHILL the autumn brings" "MAY BE the famine or the feast", "She MAY BE the love that cannot hope to last","She MAY BE the reason I survive,
The why and wherefore I'm alive
The one I'LL care for through the rough & ready years
Me, I'll take HER laughter & HER tears..."
And WHERE she goes I've got to be"

It's such a beautiful song I think you will want the lyrics exactly as they are sung by such a beautiful voice, especially if it changes the meaning !

Maybe - for me, really - one of the most intensive lovesongs. For me at the moment only one, "Skin to skin" with Harry Belafonte, touches a heart as deep as this song

Love & Kisses,

I think this song was written by Aznavour and Kretzmer. Where does Elvis Costello come in?
by Ruben on 11/8/2011 4:31pm
The actual truth is that Aznavour wrote in 1974 , and I Believe it was a soundtrack of a tv show in the seventies. The original version is still better then this cover that was made for the Nothing Hill -soundtrack
