Well, all this thread about translations of "I love you" and aspect reminds me that the best French love song (in my own humble opinion) is "Je vais t'aimer" of Michel Sardou, which doesn't translate as "I love you", but as "I am going to love you". And that's what makes it so beautiful. I don't know if many of you know the song, but the ones who do will surely agree with me :) . Christophe.
