I Know It's Today

“I Know It’s Today”, the fourth song in the musical, serves as the introduction to Fiona, one of the main characters of the play.

It’s supposed to be a cut scene played by the Magic Mirror after Farquaad leaves the stage. While there wasn’t any mention in the film Shrek about Fiona’s prisoner life high in her tower, this song is an opportunity to add some backstory to the character.

We see Fiona as she tries to stay sane in her tower while alone and confined. The only thing that seems to keep her in her right mind is the idea that someday she’ll be saved by a prince—or rather, The Prince. As the years go on, she gets more and more impatient, though she never loses her faith in fairytales.
