Lyrics
I saw your face as I hurried past the café
And the rain fell like long lost tears
As it trickled down the window pane

And in a moment all the years were simply washed away
‘Cause when our eyes met, when our eyes met
There was nothing left to say

I caught my breath, I fell out of touch with time
‘Cause it was you
With a part of me I’d forgotten that I ever knew

I stood to greet you and you held me just a little bit too long
Oh, but we’ve come so far, we’ve come so far
But the feeling’s still so strong

If ever a love there was
If ever two stars were crossed
If ever a dream was lost
Then it was yours and mine

If ever a touch was right
Or a future looked bright
If ever a love there was

That same perfume
Carries such a lot of memories of a time
When we dreamed sweet dreams
Never knowing they’d be left behind

Love is a memory, like a picture
And it never seems to fade
Oh, and I still believe, and I still believe
All the promises we made

If ever a love there was
If ever two stars were crossed
If ever a dream was lost
Then it was yours and mine

If ever a touch was right
Or a future looked bright
If ever a love there was

And I still believe, I still believe
All the promises we made

If ever a love there was
If ever two stars were crossed
If ever a dream was lost
Then it was yours and mine

If ever a touch was right
Or a future looked bright
If ever a love there was
It was yours and mine
That was the time

Català – Si Mai Un Amor Va Existir
Vaig veure la teva cara mentre m’afanyava més enllà del cafè
I la pluja queia com llàgrimes perdudes fa temps
Mentre corria avall pel vidre de la finestra

I en un moment tots els anys van ser, senzillament, netejats
Perquè quan els nostres ulls es van trobar, quan les nostres mirades es van creuar
No hi havia res a dir

Em vaig quedar sense alè, vaig perdre la noció del temps
Perquè eres tu
Amb una part de mi que havia oblidat que existia

Em vaig alçar per donar-te la benvinguda i em vas sostenir una mica massa
Oh, però hem arribat tan lluny, hem arribat tan lluny
I el sentiment segueix sent tan fort

Si mai un amor va existir
Si mai dues estrelles es van creuar
Si mai un somni es va perdre
Va ser el teu i el meu

Si mai un tacte va ser correcte
O un futur semblava brillant
Si mai un amor va existir

Aquell mateix perfum
Porta un munt de records d’un temps
Quan somniàvem somnis dolços
Sense saber que serien deixats enrere

L’amor és un record, com un quadre
I sembla no esvair-se mai
Ah, i encara crec, i encara crec
Totes les promeses que vam fer

Si mai un amor va existir
Si mai dues estrelles es van creuar
Si mai un somni es va perdre
Va ser el teu i el meu

Si mai un tacte va ser correcte
O un futur semblava brillant
Si mai un amor va existir

I encara crec, i encara crec
Totes les promeses que vam fer

Si mai un amor va existir
Si mai dues estrelles es van creuar
Si mai un somni es va perdre
Va ser el teu i el meu

Si mai un tacte va ser correcte
O un futur semblava brillant
Si mai un amor va existir
Va ser el teu i el meu
Aquell va ser el moment
