These lyrics are dedicated to my Neighbour “Norma Rogers” who passed away few years back, her friendship was a gift for me, may she rest in peace knowing that she is loved and live in my heart,

She gave me this album when we used to listen the music on cassettes, Since I found that on you tube I watched the movie and songs many times, It’s such a movie which makes you one understand what is good in this world, much more than a movie, The selection and pacing of images are very poised, I like the movie and know the love of Norma with her husband “Dave” who passed away many years ago fighting with cancer, I think she was just patiently waiting to be with him all this time until her time on earth ended too!

This movie and the theme music and the entire music score by the late John Barry is second to none, It’s for the people who understand what a special thing to have loved a soul so deeply and for those that have lost some one!

Lyrics are emotional and in keeping with the theme of the story, very touching and beautiful, since Norma gave me the Album this song became one of my favourite,

 I shall never forget her of listening to it.

Somewhere in time

We met on timeless hills

And in the evening mist we kissed

And time stood still

Before the dawn, we found forever

Moments are timeless when I feel your caress

You’ll always be inside of me

And I know when love is true

It’s always with you

Somewhere in time

I came to realize

Love never goes

Love never goes

Once it has touched your heart

Just like the strength of wine that’s left

As two lips part

A taste of love will linger after

I know the meaning of all that I see

You’ll always be inside of me

And I know when love is true

It’s always with you

Somewhere in time

I came to realize

Love never goes.

Theme from “Somewhere in Time” (3:20)

Celebrating the success of his first play, Richard Collier (Christopher Reeve) is approached by an elderly woman who presses an antique pocket watch into his hand and whispers, “Come back to me.” A few years later, during a period of writer’s block, he sees a photograph in a hotel museum, and learns that this elderly woman was once a talented and lovely actress. Drawn mysteriously to the expression on the woman’s face in the photograph, he turns to a former professor for insights on time travel.

For he must find her, even if he has to go back to 1912 to do so. Self-hypnosis, and removing reminders of the modern present are the keys, and Collier eventually awakens the day before Elise McKenna’s (Jane Seymore) August 1912 performance at the Grand Hotel.

McKenna’s manager, William Robinson (Christopher Plummer) is an obstacle. There are hints that he is clairvoyant, and he fears the man who will change McKenna’s life. His attempts to separate the couple, however, backfire, causing his protégé to resent him. Elise and Richard press on, and are eventually able to declare their love for each other.

A tiny forgotten object from 1980 pulls Richard away from his beloved, and all his attempts to re-hypnotise himself and return to 1912 fail. His grief overwhelms him, and he dies. On the “other side,” the young Elise is waiting to welcome him, and the lovers are reunited.
