Jacques Brel - When all you have is love


Original Title: "Quand on a que l'amour"

When all one have is love
to offer as sharing
at the day of the great journey
that is our big love

When all you have is love
My love you and me
To burst with joy
Every hour and every day

When all you have is love
To live our promisses
With no other wealth
Than to always believe in it

When all you have is love
To furnish with marvels
And cover with sun
The ugliness of the suburbs

When all you have is love
as only reason
as only song
And as only help

When all you have is love
To dress at daybreak
Poors and brigands
With velvet coats

When all you have is love
To offer as prayer
For the evils of the earth
As a simple troubadour

When all you have is love
To offer to those
whose sole battle
Is to look for the day

When all you have is love
To trace a path
And force destiny
At every crossroad

When all you have is love
To talk to the canons
And convince a drum
Then without having anything
else but the strength to love
We will have in ours hands,
Friends, the whole world
Non live version:
