It comes at the PERFECT time for the beast. He’s hesitant with his emotions but when Belle leaves all that reluctance goes out the window too, and he just….. pours his heart out
fuck what kind of good ass character development nothing will ever top this
“I know she’ll never leave me, even as she runs away. She will still torment me, calm me, hurt me, move me, come what may”
this line particularly gets me like…. the beast knows that no matter what, even if she chooses to never return, belle will always be with him, tormenting his memories of what could have been
but she also calms him, inspires him, brings him strength…. this is true love right here, the epitome of disney romance. fuck me up
“Wasting in my lonely tower, waiting by an open door. I’ll fool myself she’ll walk right in, and be with me for evermore.”
The beast doesnt even think for ONE SECOND that Belle will actually come back to him… he hopes but he knows with all of his heart that he’s lying to himself
AND YET!! HE WILL WAIT FOREVER WITH AN OPEN DOOR (AND AN OPEN HEART!!)
good god man thats so fucking sad SHE LOVES YOU!! SHUT UP!!! SHE IS IN LOVE WITH YOU SHE JUST HAD TO SAVE HER PAPA SHE WILL BE BACK!!!!! !! !!!!!
SRSLY SHE LOVES YOU !!!!!!!
And in this song like… it’s not just Belle he’s losing to those “long long nights”, it’s the rest of his friends, his family, because they’re going to die and leave him completely alone, forever, without anyone to love
Which like?? fuck???
And even THAT fate wouldn’t have hurt so much before as it would now, because now he actually REMEMBERS how to love, and just as soon as he learns to again it’s torn away from him for all eternity
And the beast has no anger towards belle?? the most agressive he gets is when he sings “I let her steal into my melancholy heart” and even there it sounds more like he’s angry at himself than angry at belle
he’s sad as fuck but never angry which, again,,, look at that fucking character development
also idk if it’s just me but i DEFINITELY think the beast sounds the most open, prince-like, and HUMAN in this track than the rest of the film
anyway i’ve listened to this 87 times and see no end in sight
“We all have one thing in common - we want to be loved for who we are. We need to celebrate our differences. For instance, I’m gay. I’m not bragging about it but I’ve always been afraid to say it and I’m not anymore. I want this place to be a safe space where everyone feels free to be themselves. Welcome to Degrassi.”
Listen, Noora Amalie Sætre. You’re a smart girl. You have to understand that every time you reject me I only want you more and more. So if you really want to get rid of me, just go on a date with me. Stop playing hard to get. Are you done now? No, one more thing… Fucking hell, you’re beautiful.
