Intro: G Gmaj7 Em Am D D7

G                         Gmaj7
Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spells you cast
                  Am  D
This is La Vie en ros-e

When you kiss me heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
                Dsus4 D7
I see La Vie en ros-e

G                         Gmaj7
When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart
a world where roses bloom

Am                        G
And when you speak angels sing from above
Am                     D
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs

G                           Gmaj7
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
   Am  D       G
La Vie en rose

  1. If you are playing in -1 (The Chloe Moriondo version), instead of Gbmaj7, play Bbm. It sounds better, and for newer players it’s a much simpler alternative.

  2. To play the “Chloe Moriondo” version:
    You need to transpose the chords to -1, or the key of Gb.

    Also, I recommend going on YouTube to learn the French verse. It takes a little while to learn, but it’s worth it.
