About 'Je veux vivre from Roméo et Juliette'

June 17, 1818
October 18, 1893
The Artist:
Charles Francois Gounod (June 17, 1818 - October 18, 1893) was a French composer, best known for his opera Faust.

Je veux vivre
Dans ce rêve qui m'enivre;
Ce jour encore,
Douce flamme,
Je te garde dans mon âme
Comme un trésor!
Cette ivresse
De jeunesse
Ne dure, hélas! qu'un jour!
Puis vient l'heure
Où l'on pleure,
Le cœur cède à l'amour,
Et le bonheur fuit sans retour.
Je veux vivre, etc
Loin de l'hiver morose
Laisse-moi sommeiller
Et respirer la rose
Avant de l'effeuiller.
Douce flamme,
Reste dans mon âme
Comme un doux trésor
Longtemps encore!


I want to live
in the dream that thrills me
This day again!
Sweet flame
I'm guarding you in my soul
like a treasure!

This thrill of youthfulness
doesn't last, alas, but a day
Then comes the hour
when we cry
the heart yields to love
and happiness flees without returning!

Let me stay asleep
away from the dreary winter
and savour the rose's scent
before it dies
