Obsession: “I See the Light”

Ever since I saw Tangled with my siblings, in-laws, and nephews on the day after Thanksgiving, I’ve been obsessed with this song. To be honest, I’ve been obsessed with this movie. I love that, even with the use of CGI, Disney seems to have returned to their roots of magic and classic love. I truly feel that this is one of their best movies. The colors are fantastic and this song is gorgeous.

I just love the lyrics in it… It’s the old fashioned dream of finding true love after so long not knowing what it was. Maybe it’s the little girl in me – the one that always wanted to find her Prince Charming or, at least, the boy who was perfect for her – but this song just brings so much hope into my heart again. Does that make me cheesy and delusional? I hope not because, without hopes and dreams and love, living would be quite boring.

I See the Light Lyrics
From Tangled (Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi)

All those days
Watching from the windows
All those years
Outside looking in
All that time
Never even knowing
Just how blind I’ve been

Now I’m here
Blinking in the starlight
Now I’m here
Suddenly I see
Standing here
It’s oh, so clear
I’m where I’m meant to be

And at last, I see the light
And it’s like the fog has lifted
And at last, I see the light
And it’s like the sky is new
And it’s warm and real and bright
And the world has somehow shifted
All at once
Everything looks different
Now that I see you

All those days
Chasing down a daydream
All those years
Living in a blur
All that time
Never truly seeing
Things the way they were
Now she’s here
Shining in the starlight
Now she’s here
Suddenly I know
If she’s here
It’s crystal clear
I’m where I’m meant to go

And at last, I see the light
And it’s like the fog has lifted
And at last, I see the light
And it’s like the sky is new

And it’s warm and real and bright
And the world has somehow shifted
All at once
Everything is different
Now that I see you
Now that I see you

    This is just lovely. Thanks for point me this way, and expect (hopefully?) pretty words in your box soon. ❤
