The Real Thing (Kiss the Girl)

Felicia Barton sings this celebration dance song for the The Little Mermaid: Greatest Hits album, which commemorates the film's 2013 Diamond Blu-Ray/DVD release. It's an original song as far as I can make out, but it samples Kiss the Girl, which is really cool way to riff on a familiar song instead of doing a straight cover. Points for originality!

(printable version)

Sha la la la la la oh ah oh

I have chased a thousand sunsets into the twilight
I got lost along the way, hoping for a sign
And then out of the nothing like a lighthouse you were there
Everything I needed suddenly appeared

Like a midnight star falling from the sky
I never thought I'd ever find it
Shining in the dark, lighting up the night
You're the answer in the silence
I've been looking for the missing piece
You're the one I need, I found the real thing
Like the water, like the air I breathe
You're a part of me, I found the real thing

You're the reason I was searching, the hope I waited for
Turned the shadows all around me into something more
I've uncovered a secret, put together all the pieces
But now I'm never ever letting go

Like a midnight star falling from the sky
I never thought I'd ever find it
Shining in the dark, lighting up the night
You're the answer in the silence
I've been looking for the missing piece
You're the one I need, I found the real thing
Like the water, like the air I breathe
You're a part of me, I found the real thing

Sha la la la la la oh ah oh

Found the real thing
You're the real thing
I found the real thing

Sha la la la la la oh ah oh

I found the real thing
Yeah

Like a midnight star falling from the sky
I never thought I'd ever find it
Shining in the dark, lighting up the night
You're the answer in the silence
I've been looking for the missing piece
You're the one I need, I found the real thing
Like the water, like the air I breathe
You're a part of me, I found the real thing
