I Dreamed A Dream Lyrics

There was a time when men were kind
When 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 times 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 untasted

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream 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 dream 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 a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed

I think Lea Salonga sung this song so well. Some people say her voice is tiny, and that is not true. She sung this song with so much power and feeling. Susan Boyle sung it well, but I still prefer the original.

definitely this song really capture every hearts of a dreamer. It really purges to the bottom of your souls. In addition, Susan Boyle really deserves to sing this awesome and sophisticated masterpiece

Things in my past, things yet unseen; wishes and dreams that are yet to come true. All of my hopes, all of my pain I lay them before you LORD - I offer my life by J.Chisum. Just prayed for you Patrici

I agree with Rosalie, I love Lea and Susan's versions but Ruthie's is hands down my absolute favorite.

This song has so much meaning for me. This music saved my life. I was suicidal for a very long time. Whenever I wanted to cut, I'd listen to this song and I would sob and feel better. Anyone who loves this music or has ever participated in any part of it, thank you. You saved the life of a troubled and sad girl. Thank You.
