  dream a dream
i just realized that i do not have a les miserables cd... if i'm gonna buy one, i think i'm gonna buy i love you, you're perfect, now change as well, for me and another for ate (ate, wag kang bibili ha? gift ko sa'yo sa bday mo, dec 5). and i have this image of uma as fantine mainly because of the movie, and i can see her singing this:

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.

what scares me, really, about this is i know every note. me and bibba can belt the whole play out if we wanna. i can also include mabet. i remember when bibba and i would sing songs from miss saigon, and even if there are only two of us, we can sing and switch between characters! tipong there's kim, chris, the engineer and thuy all in one song, and just the two of us, kaya namin! even the sound effects, kasama sa lyrics, like gunshots, we sing 'em, too :lol:

when i get home, before sleeping (i am extremely sleepy right now), i'll sing with lea salonga first. then go to bed.
love the song, survived reading the book, saw the play (the anniv edition with lea as eponine), and havent seen the movie yet.

i have a problem with the song- virtually everyone here on tv who thinks she could sing is singing the song and screwing it up. Somebody should have character and strong convictions first before she gives justice to the song.
theme song ko to' when i was in 2nd yr HS. lahat ng tao na la-last syndrome ko dahil dito. i sing it when i wake up, while taking a bath, in between meals, basta all day. kawawa nga casette ko eh, gasgas na paos pa. lol.
