"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 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 by Maleficent, 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

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
