"There Never Was a Time" from the musical The Scarlet Pimpernel


from the broadway musical 

The Scarlet Pimpernel

Lyrics by Nan Knighton

Music by Frank Wildhorn



There is love

We have barely tasted. . .

So much time we've wasted apart.

Come forget yesterday,

Forgive the times I turned away. . .

There never was a time I didn't love you!

There never was a time I didn't care!

You were the music I heard each night

Wherever I turned, you were there!



Talk to me.

Can you say forever?

Speak the words that we never said.

Don't hold back anymore

This is the chance we've waited for!

There never was a time I didn't love you!

There never was a time I didn't care!

I was a fool not to trust my heart. . .

My heart always knew you were there!



God, give us time to grow closer!

Give us the night we never knew!

Yesterday I held onto wishes

Today I can hold onto you!



There never was a time I didn't love you!

There never was a time I didn't care!

I was afraid, but my heart held on,

Held onto a dream and a prayer. . .

My heart always knew you were there!
