Eu sonhei um sonho num tempo que já se foi
Quando esperanças eram elevadas e valia a pena viver
Eu sonhei que o amor nunca morreria
Eu sonhei que Deus estaria perdoando

Então eu era jovem e destemida
Quando sonhos eram feitos e usados e desperdiçados
Não havia nenhum resgate a ser pago
Nenhuma canção não cantada, nenhum vinho intocado

Mas os tigres vêm à noite
Com suas vozes suaves como trovão
Como eles despedaçam sua esperança
Transformando seus sonhos em vergonha

E ainda sim sonhei que ele veio até mim
E que viveríamos os anos juntos
Mas há sonhos que não podem ser
E há tempestades que não podemos prever

Eu tive um sonho que minha vida seria
Tão diferente deste inferno que estou vivendo
Tão diferente daquilo que parecia
Agora a vida matou o sonho que sonhei

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
And 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.
