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? 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!
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, better unsaid.
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
[Valjean leaves the garden; Marius and Eponine are outside.]
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 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
Marius & Eponine In my life There is someone who touches my life
