47 Year old Susan Boyle wows the judges with her performance in the auditions for Britains Got Talent, singing I dreamed a dream from Les Miserables.
A wonderful song sung by a wonderful person, Susan Boyle… The “audience”, or rather “the mob” was laughing before starting the song, the show had selected images of her, which were far from flattering, Simon did not miss to beat her down asking of her age, who she wants to be successful like, and why she has not made it yet… Seconds after she started her song, the audience was in disbelief.
I watched the clipd tens of times and still can’t get enough of her triumph over the crowd, the beauty of her voice and her confidence and strength to face a world, which has fallen so low in the standards, by which it measures the quality of a person…

Here are the lyrics:
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
When dreams were made and used,
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 hopes apart
As they turn your dreams to shame.
And still I dream he’ll come to me
And we will live our lives 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 seems
Now life has killed
The dream I dreamed.
