Quand On n'a Que l'Amour :-
When all You Have Is Love

When all you have is love
To give a share of
On the day of the great voyage
That is our great love

When all you have is love
My love, you and me
So that every hour, every day burst into laughter

When all you have is love
To live your promises
With no other treasure
Than to believe in it always

When all you have is love
To fill with wonder
And cover with sun
The ugliness of the backstreets

When all you have is love
As only reason
As only song
And as only relief

When all you have is love
To dress in the morning
Poor people and beggars
With velvet coats

When all you have is love
To offer as a prayer
Against the wrongs of the world
As a simple minstrel

When all you have is love
To give to those
Of which the only fight
Is to find the light

When all you have is love
To make apathy
And force fate
At every crossroad

When all you have is love
To talk to canons
And only a song
To convince a drum

So without anything
But the strength to love
We will have in our hands
My friends, the whole world
