C       CM7       CM7/6   CM7
Hold me close and hold me fast,

     C        CM7  CM7/6 CM7
This mag - ic spell you cast,

    CM7/6   CM7    Dm7   G7
This  is La Vie En Rose.

Dm       Dm+7            Dm7
When you kiss me, Heaven sighs,

    Dm6              Dm6/G       
And though I close my eyes,

  Dm7   Dm7-5     C    Am   Dm7  G7
I see La Vie En Rose.

C        CM7     CM7/6     CM7
When you press me to your heart,

   C      CM7 CM7/6 CM7
I'm in a world  a - part,

A world where ro - ses bloom;

    Fm        F#m7            C9          C
And when you speak, An - gels sing from above;

Dm           Dm+7          Dm7         G    G7
Ev' - ry day words seem to turn  into love songs.

C        CM7       CM7/6   CM7
Give your heart and soul to me

     C        CM7 CM7/6 Dm7
And life will al - ways be
