Cinderella the Musical - When You're Driving Through The Moonlight Lyrics

ELLA
When you’re driving
Through the moonlight
On the highway
When you’re driving
Through the moonlight
To the dance

You are breathless
With a wild anticipation
Of adventure and excitement
And romance

Then at last you
See the towers
Of the palace
Silhouetted
On the sky
Above the park
And below them
Is a row of lighted windows
Like a lovely diamond
Necklace in the dark!

CHARLOTTE
It looks that way –

GABRIELLE
The way you say

MADAME
She talks as if she knows

ELLA
I do not know
These things are so
I only just suppose ...

I suppose
That when you come
Into the ballroom
And the room itself is
Floating in the air

If you’re suddenly
Confronted by
His Highness
You are frozen
Like a statue
On the stair

You’re afraid
He’ll hear the way
Your heart
Is beating

And you know you mustn’t
Make the first advance
You are seriously
Thinking of retreating –
Then you seem to hear him
Asking you to dance

You make a bow
A timid bow
And shyly answer “yes”

MADAME
How would you know
That this is so?

ELLA
I do no more than guess

CHARLOTTE & GABRIELLE
You can guess till you’re blue in your face
But you can’t even picture such a man

CHARLOTTE
He is more than a prince

GABRIELLE
He’s an ace!

ELLA
But sisters, I really think I can –

MADAME
Can what?

ELLA
I think that I can picture such a man

CHARLOTTE & GABRIELLE
He is tall

ELLA
And straight as a lance

CHARLOTTE & GABRIELLE
And his hair –

ELLA
Is dark and wavy

CHARLOTTE & GABRIELLE
His eyes –

ELLA
Can melt you with a glance

CHARLOTTE & GABRIELLE
He can turn a girl to gravy!

ELLA
And I can imagine it.

GABRIELLE
I imagine it too!

CHARLOTTE
I can imagine it, and I have no imagination.

MADAME
I am throwing caution to the wind! I am imagining it as well!

ELLA
Imagine what that girl would be feeling when dancing with the Prince!
