"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

I Fear
(Dee Shipman / Charles Aznavour)

I fear 
Although youíre more than life to me 
That maybe you donít feel the same 
What you call love may simply be 
A game 

I fear 
Somebody else will smile at you 
Who comes into your life by chance 
And offers to your heart a new 

I canít show magnanimity 
I love you far too much for this 
Iím driven by my jealousy 
Perhaps Iíll be your nemesis 

But you in turn are killing me 
With every kiss 

I fear 
The way a child of tender age 
Lies lonely in his cot in fright 
Cold in a sordid orphanage 
At night 

I fear 
I fear each moment youíre not there 
It hurts youÖ but I have to know 
Of every place youíve been, and where 
Youíll go Ö

I fear 
That I canít tell whatís false or true 
I canít control what I canít see 
Suspicious of the world and you 
And me 

My heart and head are filled with you 
I am the famine, youíre the feast 
Above all life I treasure you
I am the sin you are the priest 
Together we are one, the beauty 
And the beast 
I fear 
That you will leave, for if you do 
I will be branded by my tears 
In mourning for the love I knew 
Those years 
With you
