Can You Feel the Love Tonight (The Lion King)

 

I can see what's happening (what?)

And they don't have a clue (who?)

They'll fall in love and here's the bottom line

Our trio's down to two (oh)

The sweet caress of twilight

There's magic everywhere

And with all this romantic atmosphere

Disaster's in the air

Can you feel the love tonight?

The peace the evening brings

The world for once in perfect harmony

With all its living things

So many things to tell her

But how to make her see

The truth about my past, impossible

She'd turn away from me

He's holding back, he's hiding

But what, I can't decide

Why won't he be the king I know he is

The king I see inside

Can you feel the love tonight?

The peace the evening brings

The world, for once, in perfect harmony

With all its living things

Can you feel the love tonight?

You needn't look too far

Stealing through the night's uncertainties

Love is where they are

And if he falls in love tonight

It can be assumed

His carefree days with us are history

In short, our pal is doomed

 

Songwriters: Elton John, Tim Rice.
