I Dreamed A Dream by Susan Boyle, Music Video and Lyrics

Scottish amateur singer Susan Boyle performed ‘I Dreamed A Dream‘ live as her audition for the third series of the British reality television show, Britain’s Got Talent.
Boyle’s performance elicited a unanimous vote for passage into the next round of competition by judges Piers Morgan, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell, with Morgan giving Boyle “the biggest yes [he had] ever given” in his three years of judging the show. Elaine Paige, Boyle’s role model, later expressed interest in singing a duet with her.
The programme received high ratings and Boyle’s performance was quickly added to sites such as YouTube, where millions of people viewed it in the first month alone.
Boyle sang the song again during the finals of Britain’s Got Talent on 30 May 2009, where she placed second in the competition behind British dance troupe Diversity.

Here the finale performance video.

Susan Boyle - I Dreamed A Dream Lyrics

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
And 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.

    I think that Susan Boyle is absolutely such an amazing woman..her voice is incredible..I could play her songs forever..and I cry every time I hear her voice..She is so beautiful a person..and I think she is beautiful on the outside as well as the inside, not polished for the world to see but natural..she has a certain glow about her that cannot be duplicated..I enjoy her music so well that I plastered her picture and lyrics to her songs all over the outside of my laptop..I am a hospice nurse and I take her cd with me and play it for my patients and families…it calms them….I do hope that one day the right person will come along to be her own prince charming..I hope all her dreams come true and that no one ever forgets her..and I am selfish but I hope she keeps recording more and more songs and I will surely buy each and every one of them…Thank you Simon and all the judges for allowing her to be on “Talent” and giving us all the opportunity to realize that talent is not just another pretty face but what glows from within…Susan, you are the most beatiful woman I have ever seen..with the most incredible voice and I do hope you never stop singing and sharing your talent with the rest of us..God Bless YOu..

    It was her talent that won-out. They LAUGHED at her when she was interviewed! It was appauling and totally unprofessional. I’m way thankful that she won, but not just b/c she has ,the “voiece of an angel.” I like that she had the chance to be all she could be, just as her mother used to tell her. (Thank goodness for mothers, right?!!)
