About I Will Live My Life For You
“I Will Live My Life For You” was composed by the noted French Caribbean singer Henri Salvador, from Guadeloupe, French West Indies. He had a long and successful career as a singer, guitarist and composer. Some critics believe that his 1957 song “Dans mon île” influenced Antônio Carlos Jobim in formulating the Brazilian bossa nova style.

Lyrics

I will live my life for you
Just for you, only you
I will give all I possess
For your happiness

Every wish I will fulfill
Even make the world stand still

So until I’m old and gray
I will pray that I may
Live my life for you

Every wish I will fulfill
Even make the world stand still

So until I’m old and gray
I will pray that I may
Live my life for you
