I Dreamed a Dream

As sung by Padme Amidala, of Anakin Skywalker

Padme:

There was a time when he was kind

When his voice was soft

And his 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 the Force would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid

And dreams were made and used and wasted

There was no Emp'ror to be paid

No song unsung, no wine untasted

But the Sith Lords 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 loving in his stride

But he was gone when Sidious 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 curse I'm living

So different now from what it seemed

Now he has killed the dream I dreamed.

A/N: Sorry it took so long for me to get this up! Thanks to all who reviewed my previous songs, I hope you enjoy this one too!

As always, reviews, and especially constructive criticism, appreciated!

eris wannabe: That's cool! We never really sang the medley, but our marching band did do Les Miz as a show so we'd sing the songs on the band bus – hope your show went well!

LiterateSamwise: I never got to actually see Les Miz in the theatre, but I did see the TV special where they sang all the Les Miz songs, which is where I learned some of the tunes – others I got from marching band. Hope your show went well!

Minaker: Glad you enjoyed the songs! I love both Star Wars and Les Miz too (lol, well, obviously, since I'm doing the music from Les Miz as Star Wars music). Actually, I never actually saw Les Miz, but I've read enough about it to get a general idea of the plot – and the music is awesome! For both Star Wars and Les Miz, actually – John Williams has to be my favorite composer!
