"I Believe I Can Fly" as written by Robert S. Kelly, Alexandre Pires Do Nascimento and Marquinhos Mosqueira Marquinhos Mosqueira....
I used to think that I could not go on
And life was nothing but an awful song
But now I know the meaning of true love
I'm leaning on the everlasting arms

If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day (Night and day)
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly hoo

See I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me, ho oh

If I can see it hoo, then I can be it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
Oh, I believe I can fly hoo

Hey, 'cause I believe in me, oh

If I can see it hoo, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it hey

I believe I can fly hoo
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly (I can fly)
I believe I can fly (I can fly)
I believe I can fly (I can fly) hey

If I just spread my wings (I can fly)
I can fly (I can fly)
I can fly (I can fly)
I can fly,(I can fly) hey
If I just spread my wings (I can fly)
I can fly (I can fly)
(I can fly)
(I can fly)

    General CommentR. Kelly isnt the world's greatest man or nothin- but this song is really nice and inspirational. It always reminds me of that movie Space Jam- with Michael Jordan and the Looney Toons- LOL.

    General CommentI feel that this is one of the dumbest songs ever written. Everytime I hear it I think of some guy jumping off a cliff with his arms spread.

    General CommentI think this song is about realising your ambitions and achieving them. Apply it to a basketball setting (with the Michael Jordon jumps) and you'll know about 'flying to touch the sky'. Nice song and the film is funny...

    General CommentI hate R.Kelly. This song is one of those songs that you just have to love though. I learned how to play it on the ukulele. It's fun.

    General Commentthis song is about learning to reach the stars (reach your dreams) and he is talking about how he believes he can become something great. when he says he believes he can fly he is saying he believes he can go far in life and get where he wants to get.

    i think that he is trying to say that as long as you believe in your self you can achieve anything even if it seems almost impossable
