"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

My Heart-Rending Love
(Dee Shipman / Charles Aznavour)

You live a silent life, a mute eternal way
I translate all your smiles, and read through all your glances
Interpreting the words your hands perform like dancers
In their own special tongue, a mystical ballet

A moving ballet-mime, from which I seem apart
Of ever-changing signs, and fascinating gestures
But when I see you say "I love you" with your fingers
It seems as though I hear your voice caress my heart

My love.......
My love....
My love......
My love.........
My love........
My deep and wond'rous love
My sweet emotive love
Oh my heart-rending love!

I do not have the art your silence understands
With you I feel I'm lost, as in some foreign country
Unable to get through with my vocabulary
In turn I've had to learn the language of the hands

Of course you laugh at me each time I get it wrong!
I'm awkward and I'm clumsy, but I'll go on trying
For though I've never been a genius at spelling
There's still so much to say, my love for you's so strong!

My love....
My love......
My love.....
My love......
My love.....
My deep and wonf'rous lovre....
My sweet emotive love.....
Oh my heart-rending love..............
My love.......
My deep and wond'rous love.....
My sweet emotive love
Oh my heart-rending love!
