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.
Here are the Lyrics(Thanks to NewHotdox) -
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.

Its been quite a weekend for BGT sensation Susan Boyle.
The 47 year-old singer, who delighted everyone with her powerful performance of I Dreamed A Dream from Les Mis on Saturdays show, hasnt let stardom go to her head.
Instead she turned up for church as usual on Easter Sunday morning, reportedly receiving rapturous applause from her friends in the congregation.
She said, It was incredible. Although we sing in church not a lot of them know how good I was, so it was a bit of a shock for them.
Everyone is very nice and its lovely when all the kids stop me in the street to congratulate me.
Many of the churchgoers know Susan well but for different reasons. Currently unemployed, the singer devotes a lot of time doing community work on the churchs behalf.
She told us, I like to help out where I can and I mostly do voluntary work. I help out the elderly, stuff like that. And I visit people in hospital. Ive been doing that for a year and a half now.
Its been a tough time for Susan, who now lives alone in her childhood home following the death of her 91 year-old mother, Bridget, in 2007.
But Susans positive attitude - as well as her desire to keep busy - has kept her spirits up.
She told us, A lot of things can happen that have been really sad and youve got to cover it up. You either laugh or youd greet (cry). And wed all be greeting, that would be a terrible mess.
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you cry alone. I dont intend to be alone for long.
Judging by the many messages of support on this website, Susan has millions of new friends and fans out there, for starters. And the people of West Lothian are certainly behind her all the way!
She smiled, The whole village is cheering me on. West Lothian would wish me well, I hope, that is the kind of community it is.
And I will be doing my best. Before I left, they told me, 'If you can behave yourself and stop your carry on, you will do well. You can sing okay'.
Who am I to let them down?
