"Power of Love (Love Power) [Original Version]" as written by Luther Vandross and Marcus Miller....
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
My-my-my-my-my-my
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, sing it with

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

(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 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) power (Power)
Oh, it's the greatest power of them all and if you believe me
We've got more love (Love) 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

    General CommentThis song is kind of easy to explain and kind of not.

    "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"

    This verse means they won't be away too long because they believe in love and it's powerful. When they try to separate for some reason they will get back together because their love is powerful. They love each other too much.

    "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"

    When he is with a lover or a loved one he can feel the love. He can tell that his lover loves him.

    "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"

    He is just explaining what he wants his lover to do for him to feel loved.

    "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"

    This verse is just saying that you should express your love. Don't hold it back, if you feel the love, let it go.

    "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"

    You have to believe in love and you can't stop the love until they are one.

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

    Tell everyone about love and that you should tell them that you love them and, they should love others and their lovers as well. If you don't have a lover get one.

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

    Tell people to try to love. A friend, family member a stranger on the street.

    The rest of the song he is just saying that we all have the ability to love.

    General CommentAnd this song is amazing. The main meaning of the song is about how love is a feeling that you should not hide. You should tell everyone how great love is, for they can find love. If everyone love one another this world will be a better place.
