For Just a Moment


From the classic ’80’s bratpack movie, St. Elmo’s Fire, comes this love theme that is what the power of great soundtrack music is all about.  It makes you remember the movie’s essence and captures the emotions of the characters.  I like the instrumental version as well.

I must be getting old.  This song reminds me of old friends and old times.   

Love Theme from “St. Elmo’s Fire” – (For Just A Moment)

David Foster

Written by David W. Foster and John Stephen Parr


We laughed 

Until we had to cry

And we loved 

Right down to our last goodbye

We were the best

I think we’ll ever be

Just you and me

For just a moment


We chased 

That dream we never found

And sometimes 

We let one another down

But the love we made

Made everything alright

We shone so bright

For just a moment


Time goes on

People touch and then they’re gone

And you and I

Will never love again

Like we did then


Someday, when we both reminisce

We’ll both say

There wasn’t too much we missed

And through the tears

We’ll smile when we recall

We had it all

For just a moment


Time goes on

People touch and then they’re gone

But you and I

Will never really end

We’ll never love again

Like we did then


We laughed until we had to cry

And we loved right down to our last goodbye.
