Can You Feel the Love Tonight
Hans Zimmer Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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

Overall Meaning

Hans Zimmer's "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" is a beautiful and emotional song that perfectly captures the feelings of falling in love. The opening lines set the scene of two characters observing another couple falling in love. The characters watching this event can see what is happening, but the couple falling in love appears clueless. As the trio of characters becomes two and the song moves into the chorus, the lyrics express the feeling of love in a magical twilight atmosphere. However, even in the atmosphere of love, there is a sense of impending disaster. The second verse shifts to the point of view of one of the characters and their longing to express their true self to their love interest but are afraid of being rejected.


The bridge of the song asks whether the other character sharing the intense moment can feel the love brewing around them. The song concludes with the assumption that if one of the characters falls in love that there is no turning back, and their days of carefree living are over, they are doomed to a life of love.
