“I See You” The Avatar Theme Song Lyrics May Reveal More Plot

The new Leona Lewis song from the Avatar movie is out and Popeater.com has it available via streaming for those of us that can’t wait until the end credits. This song was produced by James Horner and Simon Franglen.

“I See You” is a “Colors of the Wind” in reverse. Instead of the singer giving lessons about a different culture, she is being taught. The lyrics are almost pure codependent love, a staple of the power ballad. I couldn’t find the lyrics anywhere so I wrote them down and present them to you to mull over for possible plot links. The words talk about hope and sacrifice, so I’m expecting a tragic death of at least one major character and a bittersweet ending. Also, I remember that “I see you” was an Aiel greeting from the Wheel of Time books, so perhaps the Na’vi use it like that too. What do you think?

I See You lyrics:

I see you
I see you

Walking through a dream I see you
By light and darkness breathing hope of new life
Now I live through you and you through me, enchanted
I pray in my heart that this dream never ends

I see me through your eyes
Breathing new life flying high
Your love shines the way into paradise

So I offer my life as a sacrifice
I live through your love

You teach me how to see all that’s beautiful
My senses touch a world I’ve never pictured
Now I give my hope to you; I surrender
I pray in my heart that this world never ends

I see me through your eyes
Breathing new life flying high
Your love shines the way into paradise
So I offer my life, I offer my love for you

Then my heart was never open (and my spirit never free)
To the world that you have shown me
But my eyes could not envision
All the colors of love and of life ever more (ever more)

I see me through your eyes (I see me through your eyes)
Breathing new life, flying high
Your love shines the way into paradise
So I offer my life as a sacrifice
I live through your love
I live through your love

Ah ah eh
I see you (Ah ah eh)
I see you
