Happy Song Lyric Sunday Blogger’s…Today’s prompt from Jim is another great one, “Dream/Lullaby/Sleep.” I’m going to go with Dream from probably my favorite musical of all time…Les Miserables. My song this Sunday is, “I Dreamed A Dream.” This recording was done by the amazing Idina Menzel and Lea Michelle. There are many recordings of this and they are all so great I had a hard time choosing which one. I think the mom & the daughter one got me though ❤ .
I Dreamed a Dream
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 times 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
This is such a great musical and the movie was pretty darn good too. Hoping everyone is having a great weekend and a happy start to their week ❤ Happy Song Lyric Sunday Blogger’s ❤ I thought I might also just sneak an original oil painting the husband did b/c he titled it, ” And The Tiger’s Come At Night.” (he used some of the lyrics from this song, one of his favorite musicals too 🙂 “
