You Belong to Me- Carla Bruni


See the Pyramids Along the Nile  
Watch the sun rise On a tropic isle  
Just remember darling All the while  
You belong to me

See the market place In old Algiers  
Send me photographs And souvenirs  
Just remember 'Til your dream appears  
You belong to me

I'll be so alone Without you  
Maybe You'll be lonesome too 
And blue
 
Fly the ocean In a silver plane 
See the jungle When its wet with rains 
Just remember Till you're home again  
You belong to me
