Power Of Love/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

.”The Radio Station
www.showtimeradio.com.br
Showtime Rádio is an internet radio service, devised to bring back the greatest hits from the 60’s and 70’s from all around the world, including Brazilian’s Popular Music (MPB). In those years, the best of the music scene was not only on the beaches, streets and mountains, but also in the studios. These decades became memorable for the seemingly endless summer nights in the northern hemisphere, when musicians got to know new drugs and, as a result of these experiences, new sound effects appeared.
During this period, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimmy Hendrix, The Doors, The Who, The Beach Boys, Marvin Gaye and many others have released their records and redefined pop and rock music. In Brazil, we can’t forget about Gilberto Gil, Caetano and their friends.
Rocked by the best music of all times, we have a strong and independent journalism. We bring news, opinions and comments of our journalists in order to help our public to understand the world where we live.
Our radio service counts with the most innovative radio system, transmitted in a digital stereo system, with a streaming of 128kb, 24 hours a day, everyday.
For us from Showtime Rádio, the endless summer nights have never ended!
