The Sun Reprise of Let Me Be Your Wings retains the melody but not the words, which is a nice unusual approach to reprising a song. Thumbelina has just been rescued by Mrs Fieldmouse, and almost immediately after being told that Cornelius is dead, she is forced to sing for Mr. Mole. As a child of a flower it makes sense that Thumbelina associates the sun with love and life, making this song a melancholic reprise.

Once there was the sun
Bright and warm and wonderful
Shining like the love within my heart

Now there's no more sun
Winter has killed everything
Although it's dark December
Forever I'll remember sun
