Doug Stone – In A Different Light lyrics


Every morning I watch you walk into the office
In your business suit and matching shoes
With your hair put up neatly you tug at your glasses
And you you sit down, just three desks down
And I watch you in the fluorescent glare
And my mind drifts away somewhere

And I see you in a different light
With your hair falling down, with love in your eyes
In my mind, you're a beautiful sight
I see you in a different light
Just the way I saw you last night

Well there's girls at the office the guys always notice
When they walk by, but you're not the type
They don't know what I know, how some things just don't show
Through tailored tweeds, and that's fine with me
Let them all think what they want to
As for me when I look at you

Chorus (I see you...)
Chorus (Baby it's you...)
Chorus (It's you... (fade))

In A Different Light meanings

    I believe everyone gets evaluated on appearances, at least those that have vision. I think this song reminds us of how it is in life when you have to meet up to the expectations that other people require us to meet, when we just want to be ourselves. It sounds as tho this man sees this woman as she has been made to portray, but then sees her when she is just being herself, and falls in love.
