If only / Her voice

PRINCIPE ERIC
Are you feeling better now? You sure?
You’re not going to faint on me again, are you?
Oh. . . . Maybe you have no idea what I’m talking about. . . .

ARIEL
If only you could know
The things I long to say

PRINCIPE ERIC
There’s a lot more to you than meets the eye, isn’t there?

ARIEL
If only I could tell you
What I wish I could convey

PRINCIPE ERIC
You know how sometimes you meet someone and everything changes — Just like that?

ARIEL
It’s in my every glance
My heart’s an open book

PRINCIPE ERIC
Suddenly the world comes together!
You know what you’ve been missing all your life!

ARIEL
You’d see it all at once
If only you would look

PRINCIPE ERIC
That’s happened to me. . . . You see, I met this girl, and . . .
Oh . . . Her voice was . . . I’m sorry.
I shouldn’t be bothering you with all this. I really enjoyed our talk. . . . Sleep well.

ARIEL
If only you could glimpse
The feeling that I feel
If only you would notice
What I’m dying to reveal

The dreams I can’t declare,
The needs I can’t deny

You’d understand them all
If only you would try

All my secrets,
You would learn them
All my longings,
You’d return them
Then the silence,
They’d be broken

Not a word would need be spoken

PRINCIPE ERIC
What is it about her that’s so wonderfully
And possibly familiar?
Why do I feel dizzy in a way
I’ve only felt but once before?

How come when she looks at me
It seems like time stops moving?
Almost like the way it did
That day upon the shore

But, that voice. . . .

ARIEL
If only it were true,
If only for a while

PRINCIPE ERIC
(But, that voice)

ARIEL
If only you would notice
How I ache behind my smile

PRINCIPE ERIC
(Where’s that voice?)

ARIEL
I guess you never will,
I guess it doesn’t show

But if I never find a way to tell you so,
Oh, what I would give
If only you could know

PRINCIPE ERIC
Memories fade,
Strange how they blur
But when she calls to me,
I’ll know it’s her

ARIEL
If only. . . .
