My favorite song from my favorite movie

I’m talked before about how much the movie Tangled means to me. I think it’s actually my favorite movie ever. The song in the video below is the most moving for me of all the songs, largely because I’ve felt essentially everything expressed in it.

For me, this song symbolizes the moment I realized that everything I’d been taught growing up was upside down from reality. Suddenly, the world looked completely different.

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 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

Eugene(Flynn):
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

Rapunzel & Eugene (Flynn):
And at last I see the light

Eugene (Flynn):
And it’s like the fog is lifted

Rapunzel & Eugene (Flynn):
And at last I see the light

Rapunzel:
And it’s like the sky is new

Rapunzel & Eugene (Flynn):
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,
now that I see you!!
