The lyrics to A Love Before Time

I would be willing to bet that you are wondering what lyrics we are talking about. Well, let me explain. In the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon there is a song call A Love Before Time I have put the lyrics below. I hope you find them as beautiful as we do.

If the sky opened up for me
And the mountains disappeared
If the sea 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 shared our earthly skin,
And when our real life begins,
There will be no shame
Just the love that we have made before time

The song is sung by Coco Lee. And the soundtrack also has a version in Mandarin Chinese that, in my opinion, is hauntingly beautiful. I will see what I can do to get both versions on here so that you can listen to them. :)
