Beyond Time

It's the story of two star crossed lovers who come together, grow apart, and come together again for one last reunion.
He was strong and he was handsome -- He was sure of himself.
There was fullness in his laughter -- He was unlike anyone else.
And he lived life as he wanted -- He didn't care what others thought.
He stood by what he believed in -- He wasn't one who could be bought.

She was drawn from the first moment when she saw him across the bar.
Like a dreamer waiting to wish upon the first and brightest star --
It was that same kind of excitement she felt stirring in her soul.
Could it be he was the one who'd finally make her life feel . . . whole?

Young love perceives -- That's what life is all about.
But hunger for truth gives us time to figure it out.

Funny thing 'bout life and lovers -- nothing ever stays the same.
People find themselves on different paths, and there's no one who's to blame.
But once hearts have touched each other, their love lasts beyond all time.
Though they couldn't stay together, their love remains a love that binds.

Twenty years passed in a moment when she saw his face again.
Life was slipping from him quickly, and his body was racked with pain.
Gone was his strength, gone was his laughter, gone was the man she knew before.
But in those final hours they shared, she found she only loved him . . . more.

Seasoned love perceives -- That's what life is all about
For the search for the truth, gives us time to figure it out.

Funny thing 'bout life and lovers -- nothing ever stays the same.
People find themselves on different paths, and there's no on who's to blame.
But once hearts have touched each other, their love lasts beyond all time.
Though they couldn't stay together, their love remains a love that binds . . .
Beyond time . . .
