[Cosette stands in her garden on Rue Plumet.]

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 see?
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 man that you were
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
Please forgive what I say,
You are loving and gentle and good.
But Papa, dear Papa,
In your eyes I am still 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 at 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

Marius:
Waiting near

Eponine:
Waiting here
