Celine - Une Seule Fois / Live 2013

With This Tear

LYRICS

With this tear
I thee want
I long 4 u 2 talk 2 me like u did
That night in the restaurant

U spoke of love so openly
And again and again u promised me
That u'd never leave
But now u're gone

With this voice
I thee call
Sometimes I catch myself
Calling your name
When u're not there at all

Please tell me what I did wrong
Why must I hear your voice inside my head
All day and all night long
It's not fair

(Bridge) (Ad-libs)

With these arms
I held u
When u told me u were dying
I had less courage it's true
And u wrote every day
Writing 'bout the things
That we could do
When your pain went away

But all that went away was u
With this tear
I thee want
I long 4 u 2 talk 2 me like u did
That night in the restaurant

With this tear
I thee want
I thee want
I thee want
I thee want

With this tear
I thee want
I long 4 u 2 talk 2 me like u did
That night in the restaurant

U spoke of love so openly
And again and again u promised me
That u'd never leave
But now you're gone

With this tear

To Cynth (USA) I hope time has helped your heart to heal a little. You'll be in my prayers!

This is an incredibly beautiful song and I can't listen to it without being moved to tears! xxx.

Vole vole petite aile ma douce, mon hirondelle....... Merci Céline xxx.

I have always loved this song, but I never really understood how deeply it could touch my until I lost my long-distance boyfriend to Cancer. For a long time, we had imagined what life would be like after he was better, and we often talked about what we could do together and how fun it would be. But then, he left and never came back. I have been heartbroken ever since, and with every tear I cry for him, I think about this song. Thank you so much, Celine and Prince for creating this song to not only cry to, but also help me remember Steve and how much I loved him.
