LES MISERABLES


In My Life Lyrics

Cosette:
How strange
This feeling that my life's begun at last.
This change,
Can people really fall in love so fast?
What's the matter with you, Cosette?
Have you been too much on your own?
So many things unclear,
So many things unknown.

In my life
There are so many questions and answers
That somehow seem wrong
In my life
There are times when I catch in the silence
The sigh of a faraway song
And it sings
Of a world that I long to see
Out of reach,
Just a whisper away
Waiting for me

Does he know I'm alive?
Do I know if he's real?
Did he see what I saw
Does he feel what I feel?

In my life I'm no longer alone
Now that love in my life is so near
Find me now, find me here.

Valjean:
Dear Cosette, you're such a lonely child!
How pensive, how sad you seem to me.
Believe me, were It within my power,
I'd fill each passing hour
How quiet it must be, I can see,
With only me for company.

Cosette:
There's so little I know
That I'm longing to know
Of the child that I was
In a time long ago
There's so little you say
Of the life you have known, why you keep to yourself, why we're always alone.
So dark, so dark and deep,
The secrets that you keep.

In my life I have all that I want,
You are loving and gentle and good,
But Papa, dear Papa in your eyes
I am just like a child who is lost in a wood!

Valjean:
No more words!
No more words,
It's a time that is dead.
There are words
That are better unheard, that are unshared!

Cosette:
In my life
I'm no longer a child
And I yearn for the truth that you know
Of the years years ago

Valjean:
You will learn
Truth is given by God
To us all in our time
In our turn

Marius:
In my life she has burst like the music of angels
The light of the sun
And my life seems to stop
As if something is over
And something has scarcely begun
Eponine,
you're the friend who has brought me here
Thanks to you I am one with the gods
And Heaven is near
And I soar through world that is new that is free!

Eponine:
Every word that he says is a dagger in me!
In my life
There's been no one like him anywhere
Anywhere, where he is...
If he asked... I'd be his

Marius & Eponine:
In my life
There is someone who touches my life

Marius:
Waiting near

Eponine:
Waiting here
