​When I First Saw You

This song is by Henry Krieger and appears on the musical soundtrack Dreamgirls (1982) and on the movie soundtrack Dreamgirls: Music From The Motion Picture (2006).

**Jamie Foxx Version**

When I first saw you
I said "O My", I said "O My"
That's a dream
That's my dream
I needed a dream
When it all seemed to go bad
Then I found you
And I have had the most beautiful dreams any man's ever had

When I first saw you
I said "O My", "O My"
That's my dream
That's my dream
I needed a dream
To make me strong
You were the only reason I had to go on

You were my dream
All the things I never knew
You were my dream
Who could believe they could ever come true
And who would believe
The world would believe
In my dreams too

When I first saw you
I said "O My", "O My"
That's my dream

(Fade Out)

**Jamie Foxx and Beyonce Knowles Duet Version**

When I first saw you
I said "O My"
That's my dream, that's my dream
O, I needed a dream when it all seemed to go bad
Then I found you
And I have had the most beautiful dreams any man's ever had
(Beyonce)
When I first saw you
I said "O My"
That's my dream, that's my dream
I needed a dream to make me strong
You were the only reason I had to go on

You were my dream
All of the things that I've never knew


You were my dream
Who could believe they would ever come true
And who would believe
The world would believe
In my dreams too

(Jamie)
Before you appeared
My life was only a game
And day in
And day out
Were the same Oh
(Beyonce)
Now dreams
(Jamie)
The dreams
(Beyonce)
Coming true
(Jamie)
Coming True
(Beyonce)
Like a star
(Jamie)
Like a star
(Beyonce)
See It shine
(Together)
A dream
(Beyonce)
That is yours
(Jamie)
That is yours
(Beyonce)
That is mine
(Jamie)
That is mine
(Jamie)
You were my dream
(Beyonce)
Now I've got dreams of my own
(Jamie)
All the things I could never be
(Beyonce)
Dreams you've never known
(Together)
You won't take my dream from me

(Jamie)
When I first saw you Oh
(Beyonce)
I said "O My"
(Jamie)
I said "O My"
(Together)
That's my dream
