Emmy Award winning song written for the TV series ‘BEAUTY AND THE BEAST’
Two recordings by Melanie remain unreleased.

The first time I loved forever
Was when you whispered my name
And I knew at once you loved me
For the mere of who I am

The first time I loved forever
I cast all else aside
And I bid my heart to follow
Be there no more need to hide

And if wishes and dreams are merely for children
And if love's a tale for fools
I'll live the dream with you

For all my life and forever
There's a truth I will always know
When my world divides and shatters
Your love is where I'll go
