Il n'y a pas d'amour heureux
1954 Luis Aragon, George Brassens
The lyrics of this song are taken from a very famous poem by Louis Aragon (1897-1982) and the music is by Georges Brassens (1921-1981). Its mood is melancholic and pessimistic. Aragon admits that it was affected by his difficulties during the harsh times at the end of the war, which prevented him living life to the full with his beloved wife, Elsa. He felt that if you created a high ideal of love, the realities of life would of necessity involve a betrayal.

Rien n'est jamais acquis à l'homme ni sa force
Ni sa faiblesse ni son coeur et quand il croit
Ouvrir les bras son ombre est celle d'une croix
