Disney Song Lyrics

For a Moment

Lyrics from The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea
Composed by Michael Silversher and Patty Silversher
Performed by Tara Strong as Melody and Jodi Benson as Ariel


Okay, get a grip, get the hang of this flipper
It's like slipping two feet into one big huge slipper
This way is left, which way is right
Well, now I'll be circling in circles all night
Oh, so this is forward. No problem.

I can't believe I can do this and more
To swim in the sea like I walk on the shore
Out of my shell, not closed up like a clam
Come see, this is me, here I am

For a moment all of me
Is alive and at home in the sea
I'm swirling and twirling, so graceful and grand
Not stubbing my toes getting stuck in the sand

For a moment life is cool
I'm a splash in the world's biggest pool
This is more than my thoughts ever thought it could be
For a moment, just a moment, lucky me

If only for one moment
I had shared with you all I know
The sea wouldn't be a mystery
Oh, why did you have to go?

Everything's newer, brighter and bluer
And truer to life than before
Watch me soar

For a moment I can shine
Got a grin and a fin, it works fine
My fingers are wrinkly, I really don't care
If all of my curls are curled out of my hair

For a moment I can feel
All the dreams I've been dreaming are real
Wish my mother could hear it, the sea is my song
For a moment, just a moment, I belong

I will find you, my darling
And the moment that I do
I'll hold you close, my Melody
And sing the song of the sea with you
Sing the song of the sea with you
For a moment, just a moment, I belong
