Rue Plumet

This song is by various artists and appears on the musical soundtrack Les Misérables - The Complete Symphonic Recording (1988) and on the musical soundtrack Les Misérables - 10th Anniversary Concert (1995).

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 far away 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 the 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
About the child that I was 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,
Secrets that you keep

In my life
I have all that I want;
You are loving and gentle and good.
But papa,
Dear papa,
In your eyes I am just 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,
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 time.

Valjean leaves the garden. Marius and Eponine arrive 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 one with the Gods,
And heaven is near!
And I saw to a world that is new
That is free.

Eponine
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 me,
I'd be his.

Marius and Eponine
In my life
There is someone who touches my life

Marius
Waiting near

Eponine
Waiting here.

Marius goes into the garden leaving Eponine outside.
