May J. – I DREAMED A DREAM lyrics
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 turn your hope apart
And they turn your dreams
to shame
Still I dream he'll 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
