"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

So Is It Love?
(Dee Shipman / Charles Aznavour)

Who knows if I love him? 
To love him 
Could tear me in two 
In this dilemma 
I tremble 
Not knowing what to do 

Life has new colours at a stroke 
So much emotion I may choke 
So is it love?
So is it love? 
What devil’s art 
Creates this torment my heart? 

He’s forever changing 
Yet strangely 
That’s part of his charm 
So my reaction’s 
But also some alarm….!

Obsessed with passion and with doubt 
One question turns me inside out:- 
So is it love? 
So is it love? 
I can’t explain 
It, but it’s driving me insane!

It’s really hard to understand 
What does he touch in me 
Is it the genius of the man 
That’s helped me see 
Art must be surprising 
Am I now realising 
How much I have to learn 
To still learn? 
I will learn! 

Why do I stay with him 
Forgive him 
When night fills his soul? 
Though he’s courageous 
His rages 
One day may take their toll 

Sometimes I’m strong when he is weak 
So is it love? 
So is it love? 
Or an enthralling 
Self-delusion after all 

So do I keep him just to fill 
The void inside of me? 
Am I enslaved and am I still 
Too blind to see? 
He’s asking me over 
And how will I recover 
Unless I clear him out….! 
Wipe him out….! 
Scratch him out…! 

Some day in a fury 
I surely 
Will fly though that door! 
Is he perversion 
Or something much much more? 
At night within my silent bed 
My troubled heart still rules my head 
So is it love? 
So is it love? 
So is it love…….? 
I only know 
It scares me so………………!
