Times are Hard for Dreamers – Piano Instrumental (Amélie the Musical)

Times are Hard for Dreamers – Piano Instrumental (Amélie the Musical)


They say times are hard for dreamers
But they are not hard for me I’ve saved up everything I know To take that step beyond the lawn
Keep walking till I see the station And then see it go Inside the train, up through the glass
My finger tracing All of these towns I’ve never heard of racing past Off the train in Paris, half a mile from Sacré-Cœur
The city’s waking up for me! A sign says an apartment’s vacant on the second floor!
And suddenly I hold a key I turn a lock, the rooms appear
And all it takes is one more step, and then I’m here! Just me behind my door!
It isn’t what I have, it’s only what I have in store That matters now, the past can only fade!
And everything I’ll ever need is here This is how my world gets made They say times are hard for dreamers
And who knows, maybe they are People seem stuck, or lost at sea! And I might be a dreamer
But it’s gotten me this far And that is far enough for me Look out my window there’s a view, of other windows My own museum full of paintings I look through!
Where everything is clear! It isn’t where I am, it’s only where I’ll go from here That matters now
And I am not afraid! As everything I’ll ever need appears
This is how my world gets made

    Amelie the Musical – Times Are Hard For Dreamers Lyrics

    AMELIE:
    They say times are hard for dreamers
    But they won't be hard for me
    I've saved up everything I know
    To take that step up beyond the lawn
    Keep walking, Until I see the station
    And then see it go

    Inside the train, up through the glass
    My finger tracing
    All of these towns I've never heard of racing past
    Off the train in Paris, half a mile from Sacre-Coeur
    The city's waking up for me!
    A sign says an apartment's vacant on the second floor!
    And suddenly I hold a key

    I turn a lock, the rooms appear
    And all it takes is one more step, and then I'm here!
    Just me behind my door!
    It isn't what I have, it's only what I have in store
    That matters now, the past can only fade!
    And everything I'll ever need is here
    This is how my world gets made

    They say times are hard for dreamers
    And who knows, maybe they are
    People seem stuck, or lost at sea.
    And I might be a dreamer
    But it's gotten me this far
    And that is far enough for me

    Look out my window there's a view, of other windows
    My own museum full of paintings I look through!
    Where everything is clear!

    It isn't where I am, it's only where I go from here
    That matters now, And I am not afraid!
    As everything I'll ever need appears
    This is how my world gets made

  2. Thank you so much! Do you happen to have instrumental or sheet music for Halfway? I need it for a competition.

  3. They say times are hard for dreamers
    But they won't be hard for me
    I've saved up everything I know
    To take that step up beyond the lawn
    Keep walking, Until I see the station
    And then see it go

    Inside the train, up through the glass
    My finger tracing
    All of these towns I've never heard of racing past
    Off the train in Paris, half a mile from Sacre-Coeur
    The city's waking up for me!
    A sign says an apartment's vacant on the second floor!
    And suddenly I hold a key

    I turn a lock, the rooms appear
    And all it takes is one more step, and then I'm here!
    Just me behind my door!
    It isn't what I have, it's only what I have in store
    That matters now, the past can only fade!
    And everything I'll ever need is here
    This is how my world gets made

    They say times are hard for dreamers
    And who knows, maybe they are
    People seem stuck, or lost at sea.
    And I might be a dreamer
    But it's gotten me this far
    And that is far enough for me

    Look out my window there's a view, of other windows
    My own museum full of paintings I look through!
    Where everything is clear!

    It isn't where I am, it's only where I go from here
    That matters now, And I am not afraid!
    As everything I'll ever need appears
    This is how my world gets made

  4. Thank you SO much for making a piano instrumental for this! I've been looking for one for a long time and this is the best one yet! I hope this isn't too much to ask, but do you mind sending it to my email address? It's [email protected]
    Thanks again!

  5. Hi! I would like to ask your permission if I could use this for a flute cover? I'll be posting it on youtube and facebook and I promise to credit you and add a link to this youtube video 😀

  7. Hi there, I was wondering if you sell these backing tracks? I'm in an arts event and there are no accompanists available.
