"Once Upon a Dream" is the famous romantic-love song sung by Princess Aurora, as well as Prince Phillip, and is also the ending song to the film, Sleeping Beauty. It was also covered by No Secrets on the album Disneymania 2, as "Once Upon Another Dream". The tune is taken from The Sleeping Beauty ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, specifically a piece from Act 1, The Garland Waltz, or as it has become known in popular culture, Sleeping Beauty's Waltz. Parts of it are also incorporated into the score of Epic Mickey's Dark Beauty Castle level.

The song is so very popular, that it has been used in Sargento commercials, and even a scene in the Family Matters episode "Dumb Belle of the Ball". Disney released a cover of it performed by Lana Del Rey for the original motion picture soundtrack of the film Maleficent. It was released on January 26, 2014. In this context, it is sung througth Maleficent's perspective, musing about her role as a mother figure to Aurora and how she truly loves her. It was included in Disney Sing Along Songs: Be Our Guest, Disney Sing Along Songs: Collection of All Time Favorites: The Magic Years, and Disney Princess Sing Along Songs - Once Upon a Dream.

Lyrics

Aurora:
I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
Yet I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you,
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

But if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
Aurora and Phillip: The way you...
Phillip: Did once upon a dream

I know you
I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you
The gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam

Chorus: And I know it's true
That visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

Once upon a time there was a princess
She got cast under a magical spell

I know you
I danced with you once upon a dream
I know you
I danced with you once upon a dream

I know you
I danced with you once upon a dream
(Come on and dance)

I know you
The gleam in your eyes is so familiar of me

Once upon a dream in a magical kingdom
A beautiful princess fell into a long deep sleep
(I've been dreaming about you)

Only kiss from a handsome prince could awake her
So he could tell her how lovely she is
(Wake me up)

I know you
I danced with you once upon a dream
(Come on and dance)

I know you
The gleam in your eyes is so familiar of me
Yet I know it's true

That visions are seldom what they seem
(Come on and dance)

I know you
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

Wake up, me prince charming
I've been dreaming about
Wake me up, prince charming
Make my dreams come true

Once upon a dream

I know you, I know you
I know you, I know you
The princes is waiting

I know you
I danced with you once upon a dream
I know you
I danced with you once upon a dream

I know you
I danced with you once upon a dream
(Come on and dance)

I know you
The gleam in your eyes is so familiar of me
Yet, I know it's true
That visions are seldom what they seem
(Come on and dance)

I know you
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

I know you
I danced with you once upon a dream
(Come on and dance)

I know you
The gleam in your eyes seems so familiar of me
Yet I know, it's true

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you,
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

Chorus:
Once upon a time
I dreamed we'd be together
In love forever
Once upon a night
I was wishing for a never
A never ending
Once upon a time
Once upon a night
Once upon a wish
Once upon a dream

I know you, I danced with you once upon a night
There we were, wishing this dance would last forever all time
I hope it's true this vision is more than what it seems
Cause if dreams come true
I know what we'll do
We'll dance once again
The way we did then upon a dream

Chorus:
Yeah, yeah
yeah, yeah

Once upon a night
I was wishing for a never
A never ending

Once upon a time
Once upon a night
Once upon a wish
Once upon a love

(Once upon a time)
(Once upon a night)
(Once upon a wish)

Once upon a dream
(Upon a dream)
Once upon a dream
(Upon a dream)
Once upon a dream

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, that look in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
And I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you,
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
the way you did once upon a dream

But if I know you,
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, that gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
And I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you,
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once,
the way you did once upon a dream
