I Wish You Love

Lyrics:Albert Askew Beach ,Charles Louis Trenet
Music:Charles Louis Trenet

The song was publishe 1946.

The song was first recorded by Charles Trenet in 1942.
It was used extensively in the François Truffaut film Stolen Kisses (1968),
its French title, Baisers volés, having been taken from the song's lyrics.
The song was also used in the films "Iris" (2001),
"Something's Gotta Give" (2003) and "Ces amours-là" (2010).

The song is best known to English-speaking audiences as "I Wish You Love",
with new lyrics by Albert A. Beach:
introduced in 1957 by Keely Smith as the title cut of her solo debut album,
"I Wish You Love" would become one of Smith's signature songs.
Smith's debut album otherwise consisted of standards:
she would recall:
"[when] we sat down to select the songs [record producer]
Voyle Gilmore...played a bunch of standards [then] said:
'I want to play you a really pretty French won't mean nothing
and you won't do it in the album but I just thought I'd play it for you'
and he played 'I Wish You Love'.
So, at the end of him playing all these songs...I said:
'Babe, I'll sing any 11 songs y'all want me to but I want to sing
'I Wish You Love'."

Good-bye, no use leading with our chins
This is where our story ends
Never lovers, ever friends

Good-bye, let our hearts call it a day
But before you walk away
I sincerely want to say

I wish you bluebirds in the spring
To give your heart a song to sing
And then a kiss, but more than this
I wish you love

And in July a lemonade
To cool you in some leafy glade
I wish you health
But more than wealth
I wish you love

My breaking heart and I agree
That you and I could never be
So with my best
My very best
I set you free

I wish you shelter from the storm
A cozy fire to keep you warm
But most of all when snowflakes fall
I wish you love
But most of all when snowflakes fall
I wish you love
I wish you love, love, love, love, love
I wish you love
I really wish you love, really wish you love
