"Can You Feel The Love Tonight?" as written by Tim Rice and Elton John....
There's a calm surrender to the rush of day
When the heat of a rolling world can be turned away
An enchanted moment, and it sees me through
It's enough for this restless warrior just to be with you

And can you feel the love tonight
It is where we are
It's enough for this wide eyed wanderer
That we got this far
And can you feel the love tonight
How it's laid to rest
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

There's a time for everyone if they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn
There's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors
When the heart of this star crossed voyager beats in time with yours

And can you feel the love tonight
It is where we are
It's enough for this wide eyed wanderer
That we got this far
And can you feel the love tonight
How it's laid to rest
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

    General CommentOh my godness are you crazy??? What the fuck is wrong with you?? First of all, Elton John really doesn't write his own lyrics. Second of all, what's the difference if you're gay or straight??! Can't you feel love??! Oh my god, you people love connecting EVERY SINGLE LINE in a text with some homosexual stuff or something else. I've been scared to enter the Queen section ever scince I read a couple of posts there.
    It's so beautiful, I can't even believe you can be proud of singing it while you were drunk! o_o
    Anyways, it can make anyone cry. At least anyone who has some heart or something :/ The restless warrior and the wide-eyed wanderer are such a nice part of the whole meaning of the lyrics, they definately create the whole feeling of the song. It makes us believe that everybody has their star-crossed voyager whose heart beats in time with theirs. And kings and vagabonds are both equal in front of it.

    General CommentRight you are Pusito!
    Tim Rice worked well on this one! he actually came up with 2 versions of lyics, one for the song during the film, and one for the Elton version at the end.

    By the way guys, I am also gay, and I can assure all of you that gay people like me do NOT choose to be gay. Nobody tells us to be gay, its just how we are. Wether it is meant to be, or wether theres something wrong with us has not been proven yet. I DO however know, that being gay does not affect our talents, skills and abilities in life. If anything it makes us stronger and more appreciative of things, as we have to grow hardened to all the homophobic abuse and rubbish we have to listen to on almost a daily basis from people like WERUMM. I like this Elton John song so much, because its peaceful and harmonious. it makes you remember the good times, the happy moments, it makes you feel moved.
    It is a peaceful 3mins of escapism from all the troubles of oursometimes miserable, bitchy, mickey taking civilisation

    General CommentElton John sings the songs, Bernie writes them, however in this case Tim Rice wrote the song I believe!

    The song is tricky to understand, luckly I figure it out:

    There's a calm surrender to the rush of day > The busy day has ended and it is time to head home

    When the heat of a rolling world can be turned away > All the heat (pressure) of the world has stopped so they can spend time together after a busy day.

    An enchanted moment and it see's me through > romance begins to happen and it is successful for them

    It's enough for this restless warrior just to be with you > he/she has been waiting all day, feeling anxious, just to spend time with eachother

    And can you feel the love tonight, it is where we are > love is where we are

    It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer that we got this far > it is enough for this person who is looking at the other person intensly in the eyes in amazement that they made it that far

    And can you feel the love tonight, how it's laid to rest > the night is over, sleep time, the romantic evening is over

    It's enough to make kings and vagabonds, believe the very best > love is equal to the best kinds of people, so believe the very best that you will find what you are looking for

    There's a time for everyone if they only learn, that the twisting kolidascope moves us all in turn > people have to learn that there time will come, the Earth is a twisting kolidascope and our turns to fall in love comes randomly

    There's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors when the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours > there is a reason why our time comes when it comes, it'll all make sense when the heart of you soulmate beats in time with yours...


    That is what I got from it...it may be wrong, but it sounds right...and btw, restless warrior is from this song, I just thought it sounded like a cool username...lol

    General Comment ... by the way, for gay people it is even harder to find the right partner than for heterosexuals !
    Imagine, as a young gay teenager you have your first true romance (hidden from the public; at that
    age even a lot of heterosexual Teens might have a short homosexual phase -> therefore it is still
    easier to find love for gay Teens). After this first romance you know what love is, but first of all
    there's only a small crowd to choose from (a lot of homosexuals hide their sexuality and if they
    wouldn't, they would still be a small minority) and secondly you hate yourself and your sexuality
    because a lot of people have prejudices and just tolerate your sexuality on the surface, if so. This
    makes many adult gays run around like suicidals. For some of them the self-hatred is so huge that
    they don't care about AIDS and don't mind death at all. I'msure that a lot of them end up dead, ill,
    mentally insane or lonely. - Just because we treat them as outcasts.
    @werumm : Since one of my best friends is gay I am able to talk WITH gays instead of just talking
    ABOUT them. This enables you to know the feelings and attitudes of these interesting people.
    @all-american girl : They are very good at what they're doing because what they create with their
    hands and their brain is the only way to learn to accept the face in the mirror, while their
    sexuality destroys any self-respect.

    General CommentHuh, well he doesn't even write the words to his song. Also, this was written for the Lion King so i'm not sure there's going to be any hidden meanings like that in there.
