"When Can I See You Again?" is one of the three theme songs of the movie Wreck-It Ralph, written and performed by Owl City.

The song is played during the credits showing Ralph, Felix, Vanellope, and Calhoun's game-jumping adventures.

Music and lyrics

"When Can I See You Again?" is an uptempo dance-pop and synthpop song. It features Young's "light vocals over a bed of pounding drums and twinkly synths". Young told AOL Music: "As a huge fan of Disney animation films growing up, it was a real honor to write 'When Can I See You Again' for Wreck-It Ralph. I felt like it was really challenging to try to live up to the Disney legacy. I had a blast."

The song serves as the theme music (alongside "Baroque Hoedown") to the Paint the Night Parade at Hong Kong Disneyland and Disneyland. The original Hong Kong Disneyland version premiered on September 11, 2014, and is largely sung in Cantonese, with portions in English. The Disneyland version premiered on May 22, 2015, fully in English, with the opening segment using newly recorded vocals by Young. Both versions use revised lyrics to better fit the parade setting.

Music video

The music video for "When Can I See You Again?" was directed by Matt Stawski. It features "fun video game themes" and clips from Wreck-It Ralph. Young told AOL Music: "The funnest thing has been actually standing in front of the arcade game with controls, putting the quarter in. It's great to be back and feel like I'm 12 years old again in the arcade."

Lyrics

When can we do this again?
When can I see you again?
 When can we do this again?
 When can I see you again?
 When can we do this again?
 When can I see you again?

Switch on the sky and the stars glow for you
 Go see the world 'cause it's all so brand new
 Don't close your eyes 'cause your future's ready to shine
 It's just a matter of time, before we learn how to fly
 Welcome to the rhythm of the night
 There's something in the air you can't deny

It's been fun but now I've got to go
 Life it way too short to take it slow
 But before I go and hit the road
 I gotta know, 'til then,
 when can we do this again?
 Oh oh oh oh
 When can I see you again?
 Oh oh oh oh
 When can we do this again?
 Oh oh oh oh
 I gotta know, when can I see you again?
 (When can I see you again?)

Joined at the hip, yeah your sidekick needs you
 Life is a trip down the road that leads you
 Look all around at all the mountains you haven't climbed
 It's just a matter of time, before we learn how to fly
 Welcome to the rhythm of the night
 There's something in the air you can't deny

It's been fun but now I've got to go
 Life is way too short to take it slow
 But before I go and hit the road
 I gotta know, 'til then,
 when can we do this again?
 Oh oh oh oh
 When can I see you again?
 Oh oh oh oh
 When can we do this again?
 Oh oh oh oh
 I gotta know,
 When can I see you again?

Don't close your eyes 'cause your future's ready to shine
 It's just a matter of time, before we learn how to fly
 Welcome to the rhythm of the night
 There's something in the air you can't deny
 So let me know before I wave goodbye

When can I see you again?
 Oh oh oh oh
 When can we do this again?
 Oh oh oh oh
 When can I see you again?
 Oh oh oh oh
 When can we do this again?
 Oh oh oh oh

Yeah, it's been fun but now I've got to go
 Life is way too short to take it slow
 But before I go and hit the road
 Tell me when
 When can I see you again?
 When can I see you again?
 Tell me when
 When can I see you again?
