"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

Dance With Love
(Dee Shipman / Charles Aznavour)

Butterflies upon the wing 
A melody you sing 
Without words
And suddenly my thoughts are light 
And soaring, take flight 
Like a bird.
From the darkness where my eyes were blinded 
By some chance I find 
Worlds surreal 
On a rainbow I ascend 
And at the rainbowís end 
Bad days trampled as I move 
Into a dance with love 

I dance with love 
Forgetting all my years and despair 
As happy as a fool without care 
Indiffírent to the way people stare 

I dance with love 
As easy and as free as the air 
Just look at me now, Iím dancing! 
You see how Iím dancing! 

Floating in the perfect sky 
Like scent that makes me high 
I discover 
Iím the child I once disguised 
Who runs from one surprise 
To another 
New blood courses in my veins 
I see through all the games 
And pretensions 
All is beautiful and new 
A diffírent point of view 
New dimensions 
Open to me as I move 
Into the dance with love 

I dance with love 
Inspired as a priest on his knees 
As drunk as any sailor at sea 
An eagle who defies gravity 
I dance with Iove 

Iím master of the world, wild and free 
Just look at me now, Iím dancing! 
You see how Iím dancing! 

If the whirlpool of my soul 
Can heal and make me whole 
Turning, turning 
Sweep away the fear and pain 
No lessons will remain 
For the learning 
ĎTil thereís nothing left to prove 
Iíll dance a dance with love
