Innocence clad you all over
You glitter in the sun and shine in the dark;
Meet me in Paris, at Rue de la Paix.
Where love we want will be eternally expressed.
Runaway bride, that is what you will be.
I want it not this way, honestly I do not.
Fate can be fair and at times harsh.
It hands misery and disappointment when you crave glory as reward.
Ma Cheri, baisers avec amour,
I will adore you with eternal poise.
Passion and understanding will enlighten our foundation of soul.
Patience for riches; longevity and children, our reward for love.
When we are covered with silver lining of time,
Wrinkles over us; our children, happy and grown,
The eternal guest shall come for us, and not apart shall it be.
Together shall we sleep, forever and happily it will be
