"Amigos Para Siempre (Friends for Life)" or "Amics per sempre" is a song written for the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. The music was composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The lyrics, written by Don Black, are in English, except for the title phrase which is repeated in English, Spanish and Catalan.

Sarah Brightman and José Carreras performed the song during the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games.[1] The duet was also released world wide as a single to coincide with the Games. It peaked at No. 11 in the UK charts. It was one of two musical themes for the event. The other, simply titled "Barcelona", was sung by Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé, and reached No. 2.

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

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

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
