This song is a medley of "A Whole New World" from Aladdin and "I See the Light" from Tangled, with a piece of "You Will Be Found" from the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen. We love these three songs, and by putting them together we wanted to show the happiness of new life---the new life of the earth in springtime, the sweetness of baby animals, the magic of a couple falling in love, and especially the joy of seeing a new baby. "Everything looks different" and "the world has somehow shifted" every time we meet a new baby!
We hope this video brings you tender feelings about your own love story, your parents, or your own children. Please like, share, comment and subscribe!

"A Whole New World" Lyrics by Sir Timothy Miles Binden Rice Music by Alan Menken
We used part of this song and altered a few of the words (in parentheses), as follows:
I can show you the world, shining shimmering, splendid. Tell me princess, now when did you last let your heart decide? (Tell me, friend, did you ever see a day so clear and bright?)
I can open your eyes, take you wonder by wonder Over, sideways, and under, on a magic carpet ride. (through the glorious world outside.)
A whole new world, a hundred thousand things to see ... But when I'm way up here, (And when we're way up here) It's crystal clear ... Let me share this whole new world with you.
"I See The Light" Lyrics by Glenn Slater Music by Alan Menken
We used part of this song, changing one word (in parentheses):
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 (sunlight) 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 clear and bright And the world has somehow shifted. All at once, every thing looks different, Now that I see you.
Section from "You Will be Found" from the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen Lyrics and music by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
Out of the shadows, the morning is breaking And all is new, all is new. It's filling up the empty, and suddenly I see That all is new, all is new.
Repeat chorus from "I See the Light":
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, every thing looks different, Now that I see you.
