You showed me the world
When I was all locked up inside,
You reached out your hand
And took me on a magic carpet ride
One look at your smile,
And I could see the light
People like you don't come out of thin air.
You don't understand
There is so much that you don't see
Just think, if you can,
What growing up had to be like for me
Your father's a man
Who taught you who you are--
Mine was never there
So how can you say
I don't come out of thin air?
There's so much I want to know
You've got the chance to learn
If it means I'd have to go--
I'll be right here when you return...
Our wedding can wait
I love you
I think it's worth this small delay
Maybe you're right
And won't it be great
To have your father see our wedding day?
I've waited so long
It isn't too late
To learn the truth
And now at last, we can finally say
Your father is really there
There's so much that we might share
And you'll finally learn
(You) (I) don't come out of thin air
- Jasmine's opening line to the song makes a reference to the song "A Whole New World" from the original Aladdin film, when Aladdin took Jasmine on a magic carpet ride.
