This is a songfic by Nighty. OA is Fantine from Les Miserables (a play). Tragedy time! :D


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 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


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.
