LyricsEdit

Cosette:
I saw him once
Then he was gone
We were like dreamers at night

Who meet is in a trance, then part again!
Two phantoms in the shadows of the moon
Can people really fall In love so soon?

He walked alone
He seemed alone like me
Could he have known
That moment was my destiny?

I had to run away,
And it was like a dream

I saw him once
The dream was true

I saw him once,
And once will do!

TriviaEdit

In the 1985 Preview recordings we can observe that lyrics are changed:

How strange? How curious? How secret and how vain?

This change. Can I have seen myself as rather plain?

What has happened to you, Cosette?

Why you don’t even know his name.

Was he really there and does he feel the same?

I saw him once and once will do.

We were like dreamers at night,

Who meet as in a trance, then part again.

Two phantom shadows of the moon.

Can people fall in love so soon?

He walked alone. He seemed alone like me.

Could he have known that moment was my destiny?

I had to run away and it was like a dream.

Can there be dreams which can come true?

I saw him once and once will do.
