I Dreamed A Dream

Les Miserables

    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              
    And 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
    And 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.
