General Comment:

The one thing that bothers me about the play vs the novel is the first half of the play is the first 75% of the novel and the second half of the play is the last 25% of the novel. Therefore many things in the first 75% of the novel get left out of the play. The only part that got cut that's really too bad (in my opinion) is Fantine's history. Her back story is amazing and it was entirely cut from the play and this song attempts to explain it.

"He slept a summer by my side

He filled my days with endless wonder

He took my childhood in his stride

But he was gone when autumn came"

This part makes it seem like Fantine and Tholomyès were only together for 6 months or so. In reality the book makes it clear that Tholomyes ditches Fantine when Cosette is 2 years 2 months old. In the section when Fantine gives Cosette to the Thenardiers it is mentioned that 10 months had passed since Fantine was dumped by Tholomyes. It also makes clear that Cosette is "going on three" years old. Doing the math you can figure out Cosette was 2 years, 2 months old at the time Tholomyes leaves Fantine ("the pretty farce"). This means that Fantine and Tholomyes were together at least 3 years, not "a summer".

"And still I dream he'll come to me

That we will live the years together"

After the pretty farce Fantine writes a few letters to Tholomyes but they are ignored. She pretty much forgets him at that point. So after she's fired from her job in Montreiul-Sur-Mer it's doubtful she'd still be dreaming of Tholomyes.

If you want to read about Fantine's back story you can find the novel here:
