Here's To Life
Shirley Horn Lyrics


No complaints and no regrets
I still believe in chasing dreams and placing bets
But I had learn that all you give is all you get
So give it all you got

I had my share
I drank my fill
And even though I'm satisfied
I'm hungry still
To see what's down another road beyond the hill
And do it all again

So here's to life
And every joy it brings
So here's to life
To dreamers and their dreams

Funny how the time just flies
How love can go from warm hellos
To sad goodbyes
And leave you with the memories you've memorized
To keep your winters warm

For there's no yes in yesterday
And who knows what tomorrow brings or takes away
As long as I'm still in the game
I want to play
For laughs for life for love

So here's to life
And every joy it brings
Here's to life
For dreamers and their dreams
May all your storms be weathered
And all that's good get better

Here's to life
Here's to love
Here's to you
May all your storms be weathered
And all that's good get better
Here's to life
Here's to love
Here's to you

За жизнь
No complaints and no regrets
I still believe in chasing dreams and placing bets
For I have learned that all you give is all you get
So give it all you've got

I had my share, I drank my fill
And even though I'm satisfied, I'm hungry still
To see what's down another road, beyond the hill
And do it all again

So here's to life and all the joy it brings
Yes, here's to life and dreamers and their dreams

Funny, funny how the time just flies
How love can go from warm hello's
to sad goodbyes
And leave you with the memories you memorize
To keep your winters warm

But there's no yes in yesterday
And who knows what tomorrow brings or takes away
As long as I'm still in the game I wanna play
For laughs, for life, for love

So here's to life and all the joy it brings
Yes, here's to life and dreamers and their dreams

May all your storms be weathered
And all that's good get better
Here's to life, here's to love, here's to you

Ни упрёков, ни сожалений,
Я всё ещё верю в риск и погоню за мечтой,
Ибо я поняла: что отдаёшь, то и получаешь.
Так отдай всё, что имеешь.

Чашу, дарованную мне судьбой, я выпила до дна,
И хотя я всем довольна, я всё ещё жажду
Узнать, что же там – на другой дороге, за тем холмом,
И всё повторить.

Так (поднимем бокал)1 за жизнь, и все её радости,
За жизнь, за мечтателей и их мечты.

Забавно, как быстро летит время.
Как любовь может превратить тёплое «Привет»
в грустное «Прощай».
И оставить тебя с воспоминаниями,
Которые согреют тебя зимой.

Но нельзя принять решение вчерашним днём,
И никто не знает, что принесёт или отнимет день завтрашний,
И пока у меня есть силы, я буду действовать
Ради улыбок, ради жизни, ради любви.

Так (поднимем бокал) за жизнь, и все её радости,
Да, за жизнь, за мечтателей и их мечты.

Пусть все твои проблемы исчезнут без следа,
И всё хорошее станет ещё лучше.
За жизнь, за любовь, за тебя

Please listen to my niece who obviously felt this song deeply Sonia Harrison Sings Here's To Life

franco savadori

25 years from the first version. This song entered in my heart and surely will stay there all life long. I bought that record at that time, and it was, from the first time I heard this track, a great standard. A timeless classic, especially because of this incredible arrangement. Thank you Johnny Mandel. The lyric is so philosophycally deep, poignant, total. Everybody can recognize himself in this song. It is a poetic portrait of human life, written with simple but meaningful words, so meaningful to become trascendent. This is the reason why who listens for this song will never forget it. It's a small /big miracle of absolute beauty. Something else. Surely Shirley understood it immediately. After this song our life enriched and became happier. Thanks to Shirley, Artie and the late lyricist.Thanks to music.

I recorded this song in 1998, after falling in love with Shirley's exquisite rendition. It's on my album "After Hours," with my old friend, Jimmy Martin, on piano.
