  • 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)

  • Eugene from Minneapolis, MnBy the way Luther Vandross decided to add "Love Power" to this classic medley. The song was originally recorded by the 1960s R&B group called The SandPebbles in 1967. They took that one to #14 R&B and #22 Pop.
  • Phil from Vancouver, Wa0
  • Eugene from Minneapolis, MnSorry to bust your bubbles, but the brother was gay and that's OK. He was loved by many regardless. There were a couple people who have known him for a while have stepped up and said that it was true and he wanted to conceal this for the sake of his career, really. I mean can you really blame the guy?
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdLuther was not gay IMO ha had many female admirers and so many women worshipped him. On a tribute album Donna Summer had sung it.
