"The Power of Love" as written by Wolfgang Detmann, Mary Susan Applegate, Jennifer Rush and Gunther Mende....
The whispers in the morning
Of lovers sleeping tight
Are rolling by like thunder now
As I look in your eyes

I hold on to your body
And feel each move you make
Your voice is warm and tender
A love that I could not forsake

'Cause I'm your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can

Lost is how I'm feeling lying in your arms
When the world outside's too much to take
That all ends when I'm with you

Even though there may be times
It seems I'm far away
Never wonder where I am
'Cause I am always by your side

'Cause I'm your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can

We're heading for something
Somewhere I've never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love

The sound of your heart beating
Made it clear
Suddenly the feeling that I can't go on
Is light years away

'Cause I'm your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can

We're heading for something
Somewhere I've never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love

The power of love
The power of love
Sometimes I am frightened but I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love

The power of love, ooh ooh
(As I look into your eyes)
The power of love (The power of love)

    General Commentthe best song from celine dion in my opinion. Wow, it is so powerful, so impacting, sung with such intense emotion and soul. I'll never stop loving this song. It makes me cry sometimes though.. because of how romantic and intense it is. There's a longing in her voice, urgency, plead.. it's incredible. This is a phenomenal song. Even though it is not celine's original song, she sings it perfectly! No one else could probably sing it quite like her. This will always be one of my all-time favourite songs, ever.

    General CommentThe power of love transcends all so much so, by that the simple but powerful power of suggestion can make someone believe anything they want them to:) When you're in love, you'll do anything to get someone attention, and it usually works. I can and will admit I like this song and I wish my little lady would sing it to me one day:) The power of love:)

    General CommentI am a little surprised that everyone thinks this song is referring to romantic love. You do not have to look too closely at the lyrics to see this is not the subject. The ‘power of love’ the lady is describing here is the overwhelming exhilaration and sexual charge of her ‘first time’, being that she is inexperienced at sexual intercourse. Look again please ... whispers rolling by like thunder refers to the dizziness, the head-rush experienced as she’s swept away from reality during her first sex act. Keep in mind that they are laying in each other’s arms, they’re looking into each other’s eyes, and she is feeling ‘every move he makes’. He’s inside her at this point. And these moves he’s making that she feels, well he’s surely not reaching for the remote! His voice warm and tender ... he has successfully seduced her and she is willingly giving in to him physically and sexually (a love she will not forsake). Also, describing later in the song what’s going on, she *hears* his heartbeat, which would obviously mean his chest is near her face as they are ‘doing it’. Since he is also extremely aroused, his heart is beating so loudly that she can hear it ... and it’s certainly not because he’s been working out at the gym, either. She’s going somewhere she’s never been (going all the way for the first time, giving her virginity to this man), but she’s ready to succumb to the power of love. Frightened but ready to learn ... i.e. nervous because she’s inexperienced, but she’s ready to learn what it’s like, going ‘all the way’. Definitely NOT about romantic love, though many do not pay enough attention to recognize the real action being skillfully described by the lyrics. Read through the lyrics again and it will be easy to see what she’s telling us here, what’s really happening .

    General CommentThis song is amazing! It has always and will forever be my most favorite Celine song. "The sound of your heart beating, Made it clear, Suddenly the feeling that I can't go on, Is light years away." Beautiful lyrics.

    General CommentIsn't there a version of this in a different language? What's it called? I can only understand English.

    General CommentThe first time my girl told me she loved me, was just after we had danced to this song. It was the greatest moment in my life. Tonight, were not far from breaking up. So I don´t think it´s a song about "love forever". I think it´s a song about discovering love, and learn as ´much as you can about it. "We're heading for something
    Somewhere I've never been
    Sometimes I am frightened
    But I'm ready to learn
    Of the power of love" is the main theme. Can´t see anything about everlasting love in that, alltough maybe for some lovers it will be so if they learn eachother the right things...
