Doug Stone – In A 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.

Doug Stone – In A Different Light Lyrics

Verse 1:
Every morning I watch you
Walk into the office
In your business suit
And matching shoes
With your hair pulled up neatly
You tug at your glasses
And you sit down
Just three desks down
And I watch you in the florescent glare
And my mind drifts away somewhere
And I see

Chours:
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

Verse 2:
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
Or somethings’ just don’t show
Through tailored tweads
And that’s fine with me
Let them all think what they want to
As for me when I look at you
I see
Chours:
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

Chours
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
(x2) until fade
