So Close – Enchanted Waltz Dance

I’ve told you in my previous blog, that I love Enchanted so much.

Enchanted, one of Walt Disney’s movie which combines animation and real human. One of the precious scenes in Enchanted is the scene when Giselle and Robert are dancing at the ball. They want to be close together, but at the same time, they have to be far, because Giselle has to go back to Andalasia with Edward. It’s very touching, so melancholic, and I love the song.

The song So Close, is sung by Jon McLaughlin. When I heard it for the first time, I was touched by its atmosphere, and also by the farewell between Robert and Giselle. In addition, Jon McLaughlin also has a great voice, which adds the melancholic feelings to the song.

Here I enclose the lyrics of So Close, when Giselle and Robert are waltz-dancing. Enjoy…

(ost. Enchanted)

You’re in my arms
And all the world is calm
The music is playing on for only two
So close together
And when I’m with you
So close to feeling alone

A life goes by
Romantic dreams will stop
So I bid mine goodbye and never knew
So close was waiting, waiting here with you
And now forever I know
All that I wanted to hold you
So close

So close to reaching that famous happy end
Almost believing this was not pretend
And now you’re beside me and look how far we’ve come
So far we are so close

* dance

How could I face the faceless days
If I should lose you now?
We’re so close
To reaching that famous happy end
And almost believing this was not pretend
Let’s go on dreaming for we know we are
So close
So close
And still so far

So This Is Love

When we are watching Cinderella, we can see that Cinderella is dancing with the Prince at the ball. When they are dancing, the world seems to be like theirs. The situation is very romantic of course. This is the moment where they realize that they are meant to be together. They are dancing accompanied by the song, So This is Love.

It’s very romantic, of course, accompanied by the beautiful voices from Cinderella (Illene Woods) and the Prince. I’m sure you’ll love it… ;)


So This is Love

So this is love, Mmmmmm
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I’m all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I’ll touch ev’ry star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I’ve been dreaming of
So this is love

Long Ear Dumbo be Proud of Yourself

Do you remember your childhood story of Dumbo?  Dumbo is a childhood favorite of mine.  This elephant is amazing.


Coming from an era when things were a lot simpler, Dumbo learned to overcome his disadvantages.  He is made fun of as a little elephant.  I remember being made fun of for my name.  I can’t image how it would be if they made fun of my ears.

However, as I grew older, I enjoyed my name.  And Dumbo started enjoying is ears.  Have you ever seen an elephant fly?  You have… if you have seen the movie.  But the best part is… you have… if you have been on the Dumbo ride at Disneyland.
