Tangled Soundtrack Lyrics






Mandy Moore - When Will My Life Begin?

I've got my mother's love
I shouldn't ask for more
I've got so many things
I should be thankful for
Yes, I have everything, except, I guess, a door
Perhaps it's better that I stay in
But tell me, when will my life begin?

Mandy Moore - When Will My Life Begin (Reprise 1)

I've got my mother's love
I shouldn't ask for more
I've got so many things
I should be thankful for
Yes, I have everything, except, I guess, a door
Perhaps it's better that I stay in
But tell me, when will my life begin?

Donna Murphy - Mother Knows Best

You want to go outside? Why, Rapunzel!
Look at you, as fragile as a flower
Still a little sapling, just a sprout
You know why we stay up in this tower

I know but

That's right, to keep you safe and sound, dear
Guess, I always knew this day was coming
Knew that soon you'd want to leave the nest
Soon, but not yet

But

Shh! Trust me, pet
Mother knows best
Mother knows best
Listen to your mother
It's a scary world out there
Mother knows best
One way or another
Something will go wrong, I swear
Ruffians, thugs, poison ivy, quicksand
Cannibals and snakes, the plague

No! Yes! But

Also large bugs
Men with pointy teeth, and
Stop, no more, you'll just upset me
Mother's right here
Mother will protect you
Darling, here's what I suggest
Skip the drama
Stay with mama
Mother knows best

Got ahead, get trampled by a rhino
Go ahead, get mugged and left for dead!
Me, I'm just your mother, what do I know?
I only bathed, and changed, and nursed you
Go ahead and leave me, I deserve it
Let me die alone here, be my guest!
When it's too late, you'll see, just wait
Mother knows best

Mother knows best
Take it from your mumsy
On your own, you won't survive
Sloppy, underdressed, immature, clumsy
Please, they'll eat you up alive
Gullible, naive, positively grubby
Ditzy and a bit, well, hmm, vague
Plus, I believe gettin' kinda chubby
I'm just saying 'cause I wuv you
Mother understands
Mother's here to help you
All I have is one request

Rapunzel?
Yes?
Don't ever ask to leave this tower again
Yes, mother
I love you very much, dear
I love you more
I love you most

Don't forget it
You'll regret it
Mother knows best

Mandy Moore - When Will My Life Begin (Reprise 2)

Look at the world, so close, and I'm halfway to it
Look at it all, so big, do I even dare?
Look at me, there at last!
I just have to do it

Should I?
No
Here I go

Just smell the grass, the dirt
Just like I dreamed they'd be!
Just feel that summer breeze, the way it's calling me
For like the first time ever, I'm completely free!
I could go running
And racing
And dancing
And chasing
And leaping
And bounding
Hair flying
Heart pounding
And splashing
And reeling
And finally feeling
Now's when my life begins!

Brad Garrett - I've Got a Dream

[ Featuring Jeffrey Tambor, Mandy Moore ]

Hook Hand Thug:
I'm malicious, mean and scary
My sneer could curdle dairy
And violence-wise, my hands are not the cleanest
But despite my evil look
And my temper, and my hook
I've always yearned to be a concert pianist
Can'tcha see me on the stage performin' Mozart?
Tickling the ivories 'til they gleam?
Yep, I'd rather be called deadly
For my killer show-tune medley
Thank you!
'Cause way down deep inside
I've got a dream

Thug Chorus:
He's got a dream!
He's got a dream!

Hook Hand Thug:
See, I ain't as cruel and vicious as I seem!
Though I do like breaking femurs
You can count me with the dreamers
Like everybody else
I've got a dream!

Big Nose Thug:
I've got scars and lumps and bruises
Plus something here that oozes
And let's not even mention my complexion
But despite my extra toes
And my goiter, and my nose
I really want to make a love connection
Can't you see me with a special little lady
Rowin' in a rowboat down the stream?
Though I'm one disgusting blighter
I'm a lover, not a fighter --
'Cause way down deep inside
I've got a dream
I've got a dream!

Thug Chorus:
He's got a dream!

Big Nose Thug:
I've got a dream!

Thug Chorus:
He's got a dream!

Big Nose Thug:
And I know one day romance will reign supreme!
Though my face leaves people screaming
There's a child behind it, dreaming --
Like everybody else
I've got a dream

Thug Chorus:
Tor would like to quit and be a florist
Gunther does interior design
Ulf is into mime
Attila's cupcakes are sublime
Bruiser knits
Killer sews
Fang does little puppet shows

Hook Hand Thug:
And Vladimir collects ceramic unicorns!

Flynn:
I have dreams, like you -- no, really!
Just much less touchy-feely
They mainly happen somewhere
Warm and sunny
On an island that I own
Tanned and rested and alone
Surrounded by enormous piles of money

Rapunzel:
I've got a dream!

Thug Chorus:
She's got a dream!

Rapunzel:
I've got a dream!

Thug Chorus:
She's got a dream!

Rapunzel:
I just want to see the floating
Lanterns gleam!

Thug Chorus:
Yeahh!

Rapunzel:
And with every passing hour
I'm so glad I left my tower --
Like all you lovely folks
I've got a dream!

Thug Chorus:
She's got a dream!
He's got a dream!
They've got a dream!
We've got a dream!
So our diff 'rences ain't
Really that extreme!
We're one big team...!
Call us brutal --
Sick --

Hook Hand Thug:
Sadistic --

Big Nose Thug:
And grotesquely optimistic

Thug Chorus:
'Cause way down deep inside
We've got a dream!

Hook Hand Thug:
I've got a dream!

Big Nose Thug:
I've got a dream!

Thug Chorus:
I've got a dream!
I've got a dream!
I've got a dream!

Rapunzel:
I've got a dream!

All:
Yes way down deep
Inside, I've got a dream!
Yeahh!

Donna Murphy - Mother Knows Best (Reprise)

Rapunzel:
I think he likes me.

Mother Gothel:
Likes you? Please, Rapunzel, that's demented.

This is why you never should have left
Dear, this whole romance that you've invented
Just proves you're too naive to be here
Why would he like you? Come on now - really!
Look at you - you think that he's impressed?
Don't be a dummy
Come with mummy
Mother -

Rapunzel:
No!

Mother Gothel:
No?! Oh. I see how it is.

Rapunzel knows best
Rapunzel's so mature now
Such a clever grown-up miss
Rapunzel knows best
Fine, if you're so sure now
Go ahead, then give him this

This is why he's here!
Don't let him deceive you!
Give it to him, watch, you'll see!

Trust me, my dear
That's how fast he'll leave you
I won't say I told you so - no
Rapunzel knows best!
So if he's such a dreamboat
Go and put him to the test

If he's lying
Don't come crying
Mother knows best...

Mandy Moore - I See the Light

[ Featuring Zachary Levi ]

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 the 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

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

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 is different
Now that I see you

Now that I see you

Grace Potter - Something That I Want

Come on, mh

She's a girl with the best intentions
He's a man of his own invention
She looked out the window
He walked out the door
But she followed him
And he said, "What'cha lookin' for?"

She said, "I want something that I want
Something that I tell myself I need
Something that I want
And I need everything I see"

Something that I want
Something that I tell myself I need
Something that I want
And I need everything I see

He's been livin' in a pure illusion
She's gonna come to her own conclusion
Right when you think you know what to say
Someone comes along and shows you a brand new way

He said, "I want something that I want
Something that I tell myself I need
Something that I want
And I need everything I see"

Something that I want
Something that I tell myself I need
Something that I want
And I need everything, 'cause

It's so easy to make believe
It seems you're livin' in a dream
Don't you see that what you need
Is standing in front of you?

I want something that I want
Something that I tell myself I need
Something that I want
And I need everything I see

Something that I want
Something that I tell myself I need
Something that I want
And I need everything I see, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Won't you give it to me now?
