In My Life Lyrics

    Cosette stands in her garden on Rue Plumet

    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?
    Does he see what I saw?
    Does he feel what I feel?

    In my life
    I'm no longer alone
    Now the love in my life
    Is so near
    Find me now, find me here!

    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.

    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

    No more words
    No more words. It's a time that is dead
    There are words
    That are better unheard,
    Better unsaid.

    In my life
    I'm no longer a child and I yearn
    For the truth that you know
    Of the years... years ago!

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

    Valjean leaves the garden. Marius and Eponine arrive outside

    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.
    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 a world that is new that is free

    EPONINE to herself
    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

    In my life
    There is someone who touches my life

    Waiting near

    Waiting here

    A Heart Full of Love

    Marius goes into the garden, leaving Eponine outside the gate

    A heart full of love
    A heart full of song
    I'm doing everything all wrong
    Oh God, for shame
    I do not even know your name
    Dear Mad'moiselle
    Won't you say?
    Will you tell?

    A heart full of love
    No fear, no regret

    My name is Marius Pontmercy

    And mine's Cosette

    Cosette, I don't know what to say

    Then make no sound

    I am lost

    I am found!

    A heart full of light

    A night bright as day

    And you must never go away
    Cosette, Cosette

    This is a chain we'll never break

    Do I dream?

    I'm awake!

    A heart full of love

    A heart full of you

    A single look and then I knew

    I knew it too

    From today

    Every day

    For it isn't a dream
    Not a dream after all.

    EPONINE Interjecting
    He was never mine to lose
    Why regret what cannot be?
    These are words he'll never say
    Not to me...
    Not to me...
    Not to me...

    His heart full of love
    He will never feel this way...

    Marius and Cosette move away as Montparnasse enters furtively
