It's Been A Long Time

Il y a longtemps que je t'aime
Jamais je ne t'oublierais.

Yes, I've loved you for so long,
how could I possibly ever forget you?
If the moon should cease to shine
in the midnight sky,
if fluffy clouds were forever banished,
if stars nevermore twinkled and flashed,
and water ran up hill,
it would surprise me less
than if I forgot the tiny wrinkles
around your eyes
or the dimple in your chin.
How could I forget your laugh
or the satisfied little moan you make
when we kiss,
and your sigh
when we don't?
Il y a longtemps que je t'aime
I wouldn't recognize myself as me
if my love for you disappeared,
or turned to dust
and blew
another's way,
or played a different tune,
or sang another song.
Jamais je ne t'oublierais
no matter if sweet sorrow parts
and erases all our dreams,
and our plans go up in smoke,
or vanish in the mists
of yesterday's
I will never forget you.
How could I?
