Aloha my wonderful merfolk!
I’m a very emotional person. I always tell people I am emotionally unstable because I cry at literally anything and everything. So, the fact that I See The Light makes me cry will come as no shock to anyone that knows me. Today, I want to share the meaning the song holds for me an why it makes me emotional.
Firstly, here is the song taken from the movie:
When I first heard this song, it didn’t have much of an effect on me. I thought it was a nice love song for a Disney film but that as it. Nice. nothing special. When I first watched Tangled I was in a very dark place and didn’t believe I would feel love again or meet someone who could love me and so, I hated love songs and found them to be pretty pointless. Even in a Disney movie.
However, the more I watched Tangled, the more the song grew on me. I then met my current partner and the lyrics held some sort of meaning. When I fell for my boyfriend, I saw the light and realised that even though I was broken, I could be fixed slowly but surely. I could find love again and I could find someone who loved me back. The lyrics became relatable and my heart held them close.
Now roll on my first trip to Disneyland Paris in over a decade. The place is my second home. It makes me feel happy. It takes away any adult stress I have in my life and allows me to live in the world of fantasy. At Disneyland Paris, there used to be a nighttime show on the castle called Disney Dreams. It was the story of how Peter Pan lost his shadow which flew through different movie scenes. One scene was the lantern scene from Tangled. Mix the fact that this song already makes me emotional and I was stood in one of my favourite places on earth for the first time in a decade and you had one very emotional Amy.
This song is beautiful. The arrangement is amazing and hits my heart strings in just the right place. It doesn’t matter where or when I hear this song, I will tear up and have to fight back the urge to cry. It’s a beautiful love song that I can whole heartedly relate too. It makes me happy cry.
