Plaisir d'amour

Plaisir d'amour ne dure qu'un instant 
Chagrin d'amour dure toute la vie… 

The pleasure of love lasts only a moment, 
The grief of love lasts a lifetime. 

Plaisir d'amour is a classical French love song written in 1784 by Jean-Paul-Égide Martini; 
it took its text from a poem by Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian.

Brian performed it a cappella in 1998 as a live intro for Without You I'm Nothing.
