Who Sang I Dreamed a Dream? Ruthie Henshall

[FANTINE]
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 un-tasted.

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 form this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream
I dreamed.

The dream I dreamed...
