Can You Feel the Love Tonight Lyrics

[Verse 1]
There’s a calm surrender to the rush of day
When the heat of a rolling wind can be turned away
An enchanted moment, and it sees me through
It’s enough for this restless warrior just to be with you

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
There’s a time for everyone if they only learn
That the twistin’ 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

[Chorus]
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


[Outro]
It’s enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

History of Can You Feel the Love Tonight Song

Tim Rice and Elton John wrote the song, which was played in the film by Kristle Edwards (also known as Kristle Murden), Joseph Williams, Sally Dworsky, Nathan Lane, and Ernie Sabella, while Elton John delivered another version during the film’s end credits. It was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Original Song in 1994. Elton John also won the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for this song.

Within approximately one and a half months of the film’s June 1994 premiere, John’s song was distributed as a commercial single via radio stations and entered the Billboard Hot 100. John’s music video features montages of him performing the song and scenes from the film.

In 2003, the song was reworked and re-sung by Elton John for the Special Edition soundtrack of The Lion King.

The romantic sequence where the song was initially featured was reprised in The Lion King, but with a twist: interspersed with the romantic scenes were short humorous shots of Timon and Pumbaa attempting to interrupt Simba and Nala’s night out, with the “Peter Gunn Theme” playing in the background.
