Charles Aznavour ‘She’

LANA

U vreme kada sam odlazila na Novi Zeland nisam bila posebno odusevljena engleskom muzikom, vise sam slusala ruske romanse i francuske sansone….

Tako da sam u toku decenije zivota i rada na ovom predivnom zelenom ostrvu zavolela neke ljude, neke obicaje, neke predele, pa i neke pesme….’Vatreno krstenje’ je bio rad u njihovim skolama, gde je petkom obavezno druzenje uz gitaru… Pitali su me sta volim da slusam pa sam ja hrabro izjavila ‘nesto sto lici na francusku sansonu….’ Tako se kolega Jhon rodjeni Novozelandjanin koji je predavao engleski i francuski i svakog leta provodio mesec dana u Parizu dosetio Sarl Aznavura i njegove pesme ‘Ona’ naravno u engleskom prevodu, tako da je to dugo u svim pomenutim drustvima bila ‘pesma za Lanu’….

Sada je retko slusam…. Na nasim radio ili tv stanicama i ne pokusavam jer sam takve srece, kad god ih ukljucim cuje se nesto poput ‘djavolu bi dusu dao za merak, ja ga volim jer je majko veseljak….’ :) Ali ipak ponekad se cuje i ‘She…’ :

Special Memories…. (‘SHE’, SONGWRITERS
CHARLES AZNAVOUR, HERBERT KRETZMER):

She may be the face I can’t forget
A trace of pleasure or regret
Maybe my treasure or the price I have to pay
She maybe the song that Salome sings
Maybe the chill that autumn brings
Maybe a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day

She may be the beauty or the beast
May be the famine or the feast,
May turn each day into a heaven or a hell
She may be the mirror of my dream
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 proud

No one’s allowed to see them when they cry
She may be the love that cannot hope to last
May come to me from shadows of the past
That I remember ‘till the day I die

She may be the reason I survive
The why and wherefore I’m alive
The one I’ll care for through the rough and ready years
Me I’ll take her laughter and her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes I’ve got to be
The meaning of my life is she…..”

(“”She” is a song written by Charles Aznavour and Herbert Kretzmer and released by Aznavour as a single in 1974. The song was written as a theme tune for the British TV series Seven Faces of Woman.
