Dream a Little Dream of Me (French) - Les Yeux Ouverts

I finally managed to watch "The Devil Wear Prada"! It was quite a good movie. In one of the Paris scene, there is this beautiful song which I thought it was very romantic. I googled and found out that the song was titled "Les Yeux Ouverts". It was the french version of "Dream a Little Dream of Me".

Listen to it and tell me. Can the song get more romantic than this version? French plus Dream a little Dream of Me is the ultimate love song. Awww... The version which I like was the cover by British Band - Beautiful South.

Beautiful South - Les Yeux Ouverts

Ce souvenir je te le rends.
Des souvenirs, tu sais j'en ai tellement.
Puisqu'on reva de jours errants.
Pas la peine de changer trop...

Ce souvenir je te le prends.
Des souvenirs, comme ca j'en ai tout le temps.
Si par erreur la vie nous separe,
J'le sortirai d'mon tiroir.
J'reve les yeux ouverts.

Ca m'fait du bien.
Ca ne va pas plus loin.
J'vais pas voir derrierePuisque j'aime bien.
Vivement demain.

Un dernier verre de sherry.
Du sherry mon amant quand je m'ennuie.
Tous les jours se ressemblent a present.
Tu me manques terriblement...

English Translation:

This memory I'm giving back to you.
These memories, you know I have so many.
Since we dreamed of passing days
No need to change too much.

This memory I'm taking from you.
Memories like that happen to me all the time.
If life mistakenly sets us apart, I'll get it from my drawer.

I dream with my eyes open.
It feels good.
It does not go any farther.

I don't look back
Since I feel good.
I wish tomorrow would come quick.

A last glass of sherry.
Sherry, my love, when I feel sad.
All days look alike to me now.
I miss you so terribly.
