Album Notes
About this song
As I nursed a bad toothache with the few ice cubes I had left in my styrofoam cup, all melting fast in the hot sun of Colonial Beach, Virginia, I saw my husband lumbering back with some more. "Je retaime" came to mind along with soaring notes. Through this impossibly incorrect French phrase and stirring euro-melody, my heart was telling me I loved him again, despite our terrible conflicts in those days.
PS: An old Catholic saying says there are three stages of marriage: bliss, suffering, and enlightenment. And through it all, there is Love.

I Relove You
(Alexandra Lajoux )
I RELOVE YOU (English translation of my song Je Retaime)

Verse 1:

Two decades pass… and now we feel a little colder,
And so we’ve traveled back to our old rendez-vous.
On these hot sands we’ll melt inside life’s candle holder,
Holding one bright candle, burning true.

Verse 2
Oh yes we’ve wounded one another with our quarrels.
I have deprived you of my body more than once.
Your ranting words have been too harsh for this young girl.
And for the aging woman she’s become.

Yet… I…relove you.
What a crazy thing to say,
Yes I relove you.
So now we only have today.
I relove you,
I relove you,
Once again.

Verse 3
Oh let them talk! They say we're bad for one another,
Irreconcilable they say, our love's a joke.
But I will cling to you and soon forget my lovers
Our vie en rose just can't go up in smoke!

Yes… I…relove you.
What a crazy thing to say,
Yes I relove you.
So now we only have today.
I relove you,
I relove you,
Once again.

Let’s rebuild our washed-away dream castles
From the muddy sands beneath our feet.
Let’ us set two plates at the table,
And make a single bed for us to sleep.

For I relove you.
At this shore’s home away from home.
I relove you.
Let tomorrow never come.
I relove you.

I relove you.

Til kingdom come.

Touching, heart-warming - and beautifully sung
It takes courage to bare one's soul as Alexandra does in this song, which I personally find one of her strongest. Beautifully produced, the song, whether in English, or, more exotically in French - the language of romance - pulls at the heartstrings with its passionate singing and soaring strings.
