I SEE THE LIGHT – TANGLED



Free sheet music: I see the light.pdf

My favourite sentence from the lyrics is: all at once everything looks different, now that I see you.


I See the Light is a song from film Tangled,  written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater for Walt Disney Animation Studios (2010). Story is based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Rapunzel. If you haven't watched the film yet, you should. It dosen't metter if you are older than 10 or 20 or 60. It's really beautiful and the music is awesome. It's Disney, what more can I say!

On the DisneyWiki they wrote: »"I See the Light" is the love theme from Disney's 2010 animated feature film, Tangled. It was written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater. A duet, the song was recorded by American singer and actress Mandy Moore and American actor Zachary Levi in their co-starring film roles as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider. "I See the Light" is a down-tempo love ballad that combines elements of folk, musical theatre and pop music. Its lyrics describe how Rapunzel and Flynn feel about each other, knowing now that they have found each other, they can finally "see the light."

"I See the Light" was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 83rd Academy Awards in 2011, becoming composer Alan Menken's fourteenth nomination in the category, but lost to Randy Newman's "We Belong Together" from Disney/Pixar'sToy Story 3. The song won a Grammy Award for Best Song Written For Visual Media as well as Best Song at the Las Vegas Film Critics Society. Renditions of the song can be heard in Disney Dreams!,Mickey's Soundsational Parade and The Magic, the Memories and You, and Celebrate the Magic.«





 Lyrics:


 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 all 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...
