"Every song I have translated is well translated, the one who works on the very difficult songs with me is Dee Shipman. I know her telephone number by heart, and her fax. It goes back and forth - 'No! I don't like this word!' And she comes back and says 'Because you don't understand English!' So I have to convince her and she has to convince me, and the rapport is fantastic." 

- Charles Aznavour

All Through The Years
(Dee Shipman / Petula Clark)

All through the years
I believed and trusted you
Like no one else I ever knew
The very air I breathed was you
Every thought I thought
Started in your mind
For I loved you

All through the years
How I missed and needed you
Alone, remembering your voice
And how you made my body sing
Lying in your arms
I discovered me
As you filled me with your love

All through a long
And lonely war
A vision clear
Of someone so dear
Inside my heart
Kept me holding on
I had your son
So one day I'd have you
Felt so sure 
You would be 
Home safe with me

Now here we are
Safely where you said we'd be
Together, yet so far apart
Today my hero broke my heart

It has to be
A turning of the screw 
Must be a twist of fate
The one who taught me how to love
At last, taught me how to hate
Someone like you...!
