Was there life before this love
Was there love before this I can see
Was there ever love for her before me
And if I look will she look back at me
Is fantasy enough?

Was there heat before this flame
Were there flames before this fire in my heart
Was I wrong about it from the start
Am I in ecstasy or next to see that fantasy's to blame

Was there life before this love

If I look will she look back at me
Is fantasy enough?

If this scene is in a dream
Then I'm perfect for the part I play
You can count on me to stand and say
"Was there ever life before this wonderful day?"

Was there heat before this flame
Were there flames before this fire in my heart
Was I wrong about it from the start
Am I in ecstasy or next to see that fantasy's to blame

If this dream's within a dream
Then I'll never swoon quite deep enough
No hypnotic trance quite sleep enough

If in this sweet dream I'm flying
I will never fly quite high enough
You will hear me crying high above

Was there ever life before this wonderful love?
