Darren Criss – 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

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 tear your dreams to shame

She slept a summer by my side
And filled my days with endless wonder
She took my childhood in her stride
But she was gone when autumn came

And still I dream she’ll come to me
And we will spend the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
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 than what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed
