I Dreamed A Dream Lyrics By Anne Hathaway

    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 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
    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
