Amigos Para Siempre (Friends for Life) performed by Sara Brightman and Jose Carreras

[Sarah:]
I don’t have to say
A word to you
You seem to know
Whatever mood
I’m going through
Feels as though
I’ve known you forever

[José:]
You
Can look into my eyes and see
The way I feel
And how
The world is treating me
Maybe I have known you forever

[Both:]
Amigos para siempre
Means you’ll always be my friend
Amics per sempre
Means a love that cannot end
Friends for life
Not just a summer or a spring
Amigos para siempre

I feel you near me
Even when we are apart
Just knowing you are in this world
Can warm my heart
Friends for life
Not just a summer or a spring
Amigos para siempre

[Sarah:]
We share memories
I won’t forget
And we’ll share more,
My friend,
We haven’t started yet
Something happens
When we’re together

[José:]
When
I look at you
I wonder why
There has to come
A time when we must say goodbye
I’m alive when we are together

[Both:]
Amigos para siempre
Means you’ll always be my friend
Amics per sempre
Means a love that cannot end
Friends for life
Not just a summer or a spring
Amigos para siempre

I feel you near me
Even when we are apart
Just knowing you are in this world
Can warm my heart
Friends for life
Not just a summer or a spring
Amigos para siempre

[José:]
When
I look at you
I wonder why
There has to come
A time when we must say goodbye

[Both:]
I’m alive when we are together
Amigos para siempre
Means you’ll always be my friend
Amics per sempre
Means a love that cannot end
Friends for life
Not just a summer or a spring
Amigos para siempre

I feel you near me
Even when we are apart
Just knowing you are in this world
Can warm my heart
Friends for life
Not just a summer or a spring
Amigos para siempre

Amigos para siempre
Means you’ll always be my friend
Amics per sempre
Means a love that cannot end
Friends for life
Not just a summer or a spring
Amigos para siempre

“Amigos Para Siempre (Friends for Life” is a song that Sarah Brightman and Jose Carreras performed during the closing ceremony of the 1992 Summer Olympics. It was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, the famous composer of West End and Broadway hits such as “Phantom of the Opera,” and “Jesus Christ Superstar.” The song tells of the strong bond between two people. They could be friends or lovers who feel that their relationship will stand the test of time. It shows that these two people seem to know everything about each other, how they tick and how they deal with the exigencies of the people and circumstances around them, and just how much they understand each other. However, nothing in this world is permanent, as the old saying goes. Change seems to be the only lasting thing in this world, so they say.

 

As it happens, there will come a time when the other departs, through death or for some other reason. However, as this song says, the one who remains seems to still feel that the departed one still around, giving him company, at all times. That is why this music piece is also an appropriate song to sing or play in a funeral service. If you are looking for more songs like this, you can visit www.songmeanings.net.
