Song Details

On the original soundtrack the lyrics and music were written by Michael Benghiat, John Miyagi Author, and Andy Heyward, and the song was performed by Jennifer Cihi. The "S.A.F. Remix" version on the Full Moon Collection CD credited the words and music to Michael Benghiat, John Miyagi Author, and Monroe Michaels, with vocals performed by Jennifer Cihi and Sandy Howell, who were credited as "Sailor Moon" and "Sailor Mars," respectively, in the CD booklet.

Lyrics

Deep in my soul
Love so strong
It takes control

Now we both know
The secrets bared
The feelings show

Driven far apart
I'll make a wish
On a shooting star

There will come a day
Somewhere far away
In your arms I'll stay
My only love

Even though you're gone
Love will still live on
The feeling is so strong
My only love

My only love

There will come a day
Somewhere far away
In your arms I'll stay
My only love

You've reached the deepest part
Of the secret in my heart
I've known it from the start
My only love

There will come a day
Somewhere far away
In your arms I'll stay
My only love

My only love
