I Dreamed a Dream uit ‘Les Misérables’
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.
But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they turn your hope apart
As they turn your dreams to shame.
And still I dream he’d come to me
That we would 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 the hell I’m living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.
