A Love Before Time

Performed By CoCo Lee

Music by Jorge Calandrelli & Tan Dun

Lyric by James Schamus

from: Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

If the sky opened up for me,
And the mountains disappeared,
If the seas ran dry, turned to dust
And the sun refused to rise
I would still find my way,
By the light I see in your eyes.
The world I know fades away
But you stay.

As the earth reclaims its due,
And the cycle starts anew,
We’ll stay, always
In the love that we have
Shared before time.

If the years take away
Every memory that I have
I would still know the way
That would lead me back to your side.
The North star may die
But the light that I see in your eyes
Will burn there always
Lit by the love we have
Shared before time.

When the forest turns to jade
And the stories that we’ve made.
Dissolve away
One shining light will still remain.

When we shed our earthly skin,
And when our real life begins,
There’ll be no shame
Just the love that we have made before time.
