comparatives with Didapages Collège Marc Chagall

Laurence Bernard, Académie de Martinique
Free as a bird by the Beatles

Free as a bird
It’s the next best thing to be
Free as a bird

Home, home and dry
Like a homing bird I’ll fly
As a bird on wings

Whatever happened to
The life that we once knew?
Can we really live without each other?

Where did we lose the touch
That seemed to mean so much?
It always made me feel so…

Free as a bird
Like the next best thing to be
Free as a bird

Home, home and dry
Like a homing bird I’ll fly
As a bird on wings

Whatever happened to
The life that we once knew?
Always made me feel so free

Ah…
Ah…
Ah…

Free as a bird
It’s the next best thing to be
Free as a bird
Free as a bird
Free as a bird
Oooooo

Free…

Donovan

I’d give it all up to be with you

No gold worth digging for
Without your golden love
No treasure rich enough
To be without your love

No sorrow —————     —————-
To be away from you
No distance —————–     —————–
A night not spent with you

No diamond —————-             ————
The light within your eyes
No star I gaze at
—————    in these skies
No sadness —————–           ————–
This longing for you
I’d give it all up
To be with you

This night of darkness
I lay upon my bed
All alone and lonely
Remembering words you said

No goal worth striving for
Without your golden smiles
Never again we’ ll part
No more the lonely miles


No gold worth digging for
Without your golden love
No treasure rich enough
To be without your love

No sorrow deeper than
To be away from you
No distance farther than
A night not spent with you

No diamond brighter than
The light within your eyes
No star I gaze at
Brighter in these skies
No sadness deeper than
This longing for you
I`d give it all up
To be with you

This night of darkness
I lay upon my bed
All alone and lonely
Remembering words you said

No goal worth striving for
Without your golden smiles
Never again we`ll part
No more the lonely miles
