Ne me quitte pas

Belgium lost a great chansonnier 30 years ago. I am fairly Jacques Brel ignorant, but some of his songs that I do know always give me goosebumps.

Comments

Jacques Brel was truly amazing.
Now here's a coincidence! A few months back I devoted a post to this very song, but with the English translation. The words alone are stunning. If you are interested, click on my name and you should go straight there. (You'll need to switch of my Playlist background 'musac' at the bottom of the page)

I've ended up here as a result of the lovely comments you left about my photos on Lookin In. I so appreciate them.

An old flame once made me a smoldering CD with this song on it. There's just so much emotion in his voice and the lyrics are beautiful. I still get choked up whenever I hear it...

...Laisse-moi devenir
L'ombre de ton ombre
L'ombre de ta main
L'ombre de ton chien
Ne me quitte pas...

Gets me every time... *sniff*
