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
she slept a summer by my side
she filled my days with endless wonder
she took my childhood in his stride
But she was gone when autumn came
And still I dream she'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.
How true life has killed quite a few dreams i dreamed .....
only to make me debate the decisions at will...
We start out so wide-eyed, naive, and optimistic,
only to be lost somewhere along the way
in this vicious circle of life ...
We dream to be back to claim the lost tracks
but all we do is DREAM ...
how true life has killed the dream i dreamed .
