Doug Stone - In A Different Light

Recommended Posts

Every morning I watch you walk into the office, you're business suit and matching shoes

With your hair put up neatly, you tug at your glasses and you sit down, just three desks down.

I watch you in the flourescent glare, and my mind drifts away somewhere

And I see you in a different light, your hair falling down with love in your eyes

In my mind, you're a beautiful sight, I see you in a different light,

Just the way I saw you last night.

There's girls at the office, the guys always notice when they walk by, but you're not the type.

They don't know what I know, while some things just don't show in tailored tweeds, that's fine with me.

Let them all think what they want to, as for me when I look at you

I see you in a different light, your hair falling down with love in your eyes.

In my mind, you're a beautiful sight, I see you in a different light

Just the way I saw you last night.

Baby it's you in a different light, your hair falling down with love in your eyes.

In my mind, you're a beautiful sight, I see you in a different light.

Just the way I saw you last night.

"In a Different Light" (sometimes shortened to "Different Light") is a song written by Bob McDill, Dickey Lee and Bucky Jones, and recorded by American country music artist Doug Stone. It was released in February 1991 as the fourth and final single from his self-titled debut album. It peaked at number 1 in both the United States and Canada, thus becoming his first number one hit.

The song is about a male office worker who has a fantasy-come-true about one of his female co-workers, who -- despite her apparent youthful appearance -- is always bespectacled, her hair in a bun and conservatively dressed in business attire. The protagonist takes note of his male co-workers' lack of interest in the woman, while not letting on (to them) about his social encounters with the woman.

It is during these encounters that the protagonist reveals that "I see you (the co-worker) in a different light," remarking that he had seen the woman with her hair worn long and with "love in [her] eyes," revealing her physical beauty to him.
