I Dreamed a Dream


There was a time when men were kind…
And their voices were soft…
And their words inviting.
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting.
There was a time… Then it all went wrong.


I dreamed a dream in time gone by…
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die.
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.
Then I was young and unafraid…
When dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung no wine unstated.


But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dreams to shame.


He slept a summer by my side.
He filled my days with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when autumn came.
And still I dreamed that he’ll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather


I had dreamed my life would be
So different from this hell I am living.
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed

From Les Miserables, the musical.
