I absolutely LOVE this song! This song takes place right after Simba nearly KILLS Timon by challenging him to jump over a river. Timon fails, falls in the river, is swept downstream, and hangs on a tree branch over a waterfall with crocodiles below the waterfall waiting for Timon to fall so they can feast. Simba has a horrific flashback of how his father died in a stampede, and gets paralyzed. Timon falls, but Simba snaps out of it just in time to save him. They return to the jungle and Simba sings, "Endless Night". The song is a cry to his father about how he said that he would always be there to Simba, even though he didn't help him during the previous event. Simba also sings about how his life is an, "endless nightmare " and how to him the sun never rises. This is how the song gets it's name. Rafiki hears his song and concludes that Simba is alive even though he was thought to be dead. Do you see how much of a deal that song is? If he wouldn't have sung it, he would of never made ...more

" You Promised To Be There, Whenever I Needed You. Whenever I Call Your Name, You're Not Anywhere. I'm Trying To Hold On, Just Waiting To Hear You're Voice. One Word, Just A Word Or Two, Will End This Nightmare. " Absolutely Beautiful.

Beautiful set, Beautiful song, Beautiful vocals.
