"She" by Elvis Costello (In Motion Pictures, 2012)

The Love That Will Last Forever by Shawn Michel de Montaigne


Elvis Costello

Original lyrics by

Charles Aznavour and Herbert Kretzmer (1974)

Here's the ending to Notting Hill

... and here's a primer on "romcommunism" by none other than Ted Lasso


She may be the face I can't forget

A trace of pleasure or regret

May be my treasure or the price I have to pay

She may be the song that summer sings

May be the chill that autumn brings

May be a hundred different things

Within the measure of a day

She may be the beauty or the beast

May be the famine or the feast

May turn each day into a heaven or a hell

She may be the mirror of my dreams

A smile reflected in a stream

She may not be what she may seem

Inside her shell

She, who always seems so happy in a crowd,

Whose eyes can be so private and so proud

No one's allowed to see them when they cry

She may be the love that cannot hope to last

May come to me from shadows of the past

That I'll remember till the day I die

She may be the reason I survive

The why and wherefore I'm alive

The one I'll care for through the rough and ready years

Me, I'll take her laughter and her tears

And make them all my souvenirs

For where she goes I've got to be

The meaning of my life is she


Oh, she


Few songs can truly be called impassioned.

Yeah, sure, they are very passionate;

sexy, yes; gooey and all emotion-y, absolutely.

But very few take that final step to truly impassioned.

This one does.

I loved it way back in 1974,

but Elvis Costello raises it to new heights.

It's the perfect soundtrack to the end of Notting Hill,

one of my very favorite, if not my certain number one,

romantic comedy.
