Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
There was a time when men were kind
Their voices were soft
And their words inviting
Verse 2
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And that song was exciting
Verse 3
There was a time, and it all went wrong
Verse 4
I dreamed a dream in days gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
And still I dreamed he'd come to me
That we would live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather
Verse 9
I had a dream my life would be
So diff'rent from this hell I'm living
So diff'rent now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed
