"When Will My Life Begin?" is a song sung by Rapunzel.


Seven AM the usual morning lineup

Start on the Chores and sweep 'till the floor's all clean

Polish and wax, do laundry and mop and shine up

Sweep again and by then it's, like, Seven-Fifteen

And so I'll read a book or maybe two or three

I'll add a few more paintings to my gallery

I'll play guitar

Paint, Knit and Cook and Basically

Just Wonder when Will My Life Begin?

Then after lunch, it's puzzles and darts and baking

Paper mache', a bit of ballet and chess

Pottery and ventriloquy, candle-making

Then I'll stretch

Maybe Sketch

Take a climb

Sew a dress

And I'll reread the books

If I have time to spare

I'll paint the walls some more

I'm sure there's room Somewhere

And then I'll Brush

and Brush

and Brush

and Brush my hair

Stuck in the same place I've always been

And I'll keep wondering

and wondering

and wondering

and wondering

When will my life begin?

Tomorrow Night the lights will appear

Just like they do on my birthday each year.

What is it like out there where they glow?

Now that I'm older, Mother might just let me go.

I've got my mother's love

I shouldn't ask for more

I've got so many things

I should be thankful for

Yes I have everything

Except, I guess, a door

Perhaps it's better that I stay in

But tell me When will my life begin?

Look at the world so Close

And I'm halfway to it!

Look at it all so big

Do I even dare?

Look at me, there at last!

I just have to do it

Should I?

(Speaking) No!

Here I go

Just smell the grass! The dirt!

Just like I dreamed they'd be!

Just feel that summer breeze

The way it's calling me

For like the first time ever,

I'm completely free!

I could go running

And racing

And dancing

And chasing

And leaping

And bounding

Hair flying

Heart pounding

And splashing

And reeling

And finally feeling

That's when my life begins!


  • The song has two reprises, both sung by Rapunzel. However, only one was in the movie and the other one was only on the soundtrack.
