    Dove Cameron put her whole soul and body into this masterpiece

      @Shane Beudeker there was auto tune but it didn’t fully help, she’s actually an amazing singer and actress. She could’ve did amazing with or without that auto tune. She actually sung it without auto tune a few times and at her concerts, she’s amazing

    I can’t believe that Descendants is already 6 years old. I remember being 11 and watching the movie in 2016 and absolutely loving it. Now here i am at 16 re-listening to my favorite descendants songs. Thank you Disney and everyone for this beautiful series.

    This movie is so important to me.
    It helped me realize my queerness when I was only 12, with a HUUUGE crush for Dove Cameron (especially with "If only", still my feel-better-song after 6 years).
    I was so scared because of my fam never being supportive to the LGBT community, but having realized it so young forged the path for self-acceptance as a teenager. Without Descendants, I could have still been the homophobe I was when in middle school, influenced by my parents. I could have stayed hidden to myself.
    Thank you, Mal. You're the reason I now know myself more. This may sound stupid from outside, but my queer pals will understand. 🙏🏳️‍🌈

    A million thoughts in my head
    Should I let my heart keep listening
    'Cause up 'til now I've walked the line
    Nothing lost but something missing
    I can't decide
    What's wrong, what's right
    Which way should I go
    If only I knew what my heart was telling me
    Don't know what I'm feeling
    Is this just a dream?
    Ah oh, yeah
    If only I could read the signs in front of me
    I could find the way to who I'm meant to be
    Ah oh, if only
    Ah, oh
    Am I crazy? Maybe we could happen
    Will you still be with me when the magic's all run out?
    If only I knew what my heart was telling me
    Don't know what I'm feeling

    Dove has truly grown as an actress, performer, and singer, she’s grown and she was so amazing even with this song. She poured her whole heart and soul into this song, to think that I was listening to this 6 years ago never knowing she would make such a big name for herself

    This is one of my favorite songs that Dove (Mal) sings in the "Descendants" franchise. I can't believe that it's almost been 7 years since the 1st film came out in 2015. By the way, Cameron Boyce (Carlos) will be greatly missed. He was a great Disney actor and his life was taken away too soon. Rest in peace, Cameron. Rest in peace.

    I love how the line “Will you still be with me when the magic’s all run out” is completely related to the movie but also implies the insecurity of any person in a relationship- will the other person love them for who they really are, who they are when they are in their darkest times.

      at first it's a cute crush and puppy love, but when that runs out it starts to get boring. The magic has run out and has become dull. You're left to wonder: 'will you still be with me?'

      @PenWielder Magic not true. Auto tune just fixes the pitch. If ur voice sounds terrible, it will still sound bad but on pitch. Being on pitch isn't the only thing that makes your voice sound good. There is also good tone which auto tune can't give you.

    This song is where Mal realizes she truly loves Ben.
    The line "will you still be with me when the magic's all run out?" expresses that.
    I felt it too- sometimes that "magic" is love/interest and we never want it to run out :(
