Power OfLove/Love Power
Luther Vandross Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

When I say goodbye it is never for long
'Cause I know our love still lives on
It will be again exactly like it was
'Cause I believe in the power of love

When you're close I can feel the power
When it's love I can always tell
Love for me is the best thing now
It's something that I know so well

Hold me closer and every minute
Of every hour, feel the power of love, yeah
Hold me tighter and take me higher
And feel the fire of the power of love

Did you know that your feelings show
You thought, your love was locked up inside
But when your senses start to overload
Love is something you should never hide

You've got to believe in love
It's a feeling that's next to none
Can't stop until we are one
With the power of love

Tell everyone to try
I promise you'll reach the sky
One thing that we can't deny
Is the power of love

So close your eyes and you can feel it
Comin' straight from above, it's the power of love
You can't deny it, so don't even try it
Let the feelin' sweep you off your feet

You've got to believe in love
It's a feeling that's next to none
Can't stop until we are one
With the power of love

Tell everyone you see
How much better the world could be
For them and for you, for me
With the power of love

Ooh, ooh, ooh
You've got to feel the power
Yeah, yeah

So listen up and you will hear it
A symphony from above, it's the power of love
So glad we've found it, now there's no way around it
Just let the feeling sweep you off your feet

You've got to believe in love
It's a feeling that's next to none
Can't stop until we are one
With the power of love

Tell everyone to try
I promise you'll reach the sky
One thing that you can't deny
Is the power of love

When we walk down the street
We don't care who we see or who we meet
Don't need to run, don't need to hide
'Cause we've got something burning inside, yeah

We've got love, power
It's the greatest power of them all, ooh ooh
We've got love, power
And together we can't fall

We've got love (love) power (power)
It's the greatest power of them all
Oh, we've got love (love), we got all the power (power)
And together we can't fall, and all the good love

(We've got love) ooh, we've got love (power), yes, we do
(It's the greatest power of them all)
(We've got love) love, love, love (power)
(And together) together (we can't fall) We'll never fall if we've got

(We've got love) If we've got love (Power)
(It's the greatest power of them all)
(We've got love) tell the world we got love (power) tell the people about it
(And together we can't fall) and it's all because we've got, we've got

We've got love (love), all of the power (power)
Oh, it's the greatest power of them all and if you believe me
We've got more love (love), more of the power (power)
And together we can't fall, I know, can't fall





We can't fall (love) when there's a love power (power)
'Cause it's the greatest power of them all

Overall Meaning

In Luther Vandross's song "Power Of Love - Love Power," the singer asserts his belief in the enduring nature of love. He acknowledges that temporary separations may occur, but he knows that love will always overcome them. For him, love is a powerful force that manifests itself physically, and he revels in its intensity. He encourages others to embrace love as well, knowing that once they do, it will sweep them off their feet and bring them closer to true happiness. Love, Vandross argues, is the greatest power of them all, capable of overcoming all obstacles and bringing people together.

I am a retired teacher. I had a 40 minute drive to work. When I would get about 10-15 minutes away from work, I would play this song, and if I timed it right, I would cruise into the parking garage as it ended. (I might have to repeat it!) No matter how I felt on any day, this was the perfect song to reach into my heart and call forth the spirit necessary to teach. Thank you, Luther Vandross; your Love Power lives on. May you rest in peace.
