The joys of love / Plaisir d'amour

The song "The joys of love" or "Plaisir d'amour" comes in different versions and varieties. For example:  


The joys of love

The joys of love
Are but a moment strong
The pain of love endures
A whole life long

His eyes kissed mine
I saw the love in them shine
A rainbow brightened my window
Such love divine

And now he's gone
Like a dream that melts with the dawn
His memory stays locked in my heartstrings
He was ne'er mine


Joan Baez -- Plaisir d'amour

Plaisir d'amour ne dure qu'un moment
chagrin d'amour dure toute la vie.

The joys of love are but a moment long,
the pain of love endures the whole life long.

Your eyes kissed mine, I saw the love in them shine,
you brought me heaven right then when your eyes kissed mine.

My love loves me, and all the wonders I see,
a rainbow shines in my window, my love loves me.

And now he is gone, like a dream that fades into dawn,
but the words stay locked in my heart-strings, "My love loves me".

Plaisir d'amour...
