during the first act. The music is by
Claude-Michel Schönberg, with orchestrations by
John Cameron. The English lyrics are by

Alain Boublil from the original French production.
The song is a lament, sung by the anguished, dying Fantine, who has just been fired from her job at the factory and thrown onto the streets. She thinks back to happier days and wonders at all that has gone wrong in her life.
