Dear linguaphiles, I need your help as usual.

In a book I translate, the main female character is dreaming about her lost lover: "and perhaps (...) they would be lovers again, if only on the moon". She is Spanish by birth, so can the bold phrase be some kind of idiom translated from Spanish? Because it is certainly something of an idiom and I don't recognize it as an English one.

Thanks in advance!
