Jacques Brel - Ne Me Quitte Pas

"In a man's life, there are two important dates : his birth and his death. Everything we do in between is not very important."

Ne Me Quitte Pas was written after Suzanne Gabriello, Brel's girlfriend at the time, put an end to their relationship. Zizou was pregnant with his child and had an abortion after Brel refused fatherhood. Jacques would later admit in an interview that the song is not a love song, but rather one about the cowardice of men.
