  • Lyrics
  • Looking in your eyes I see a paradise
    This world that I've found
    Is too good to be true
    Standing here beside you
    Want so much to give you
    This love in my heart that I'm feeling for you

    Let 'em say we're crazy, I don't care about that
    Put your hand in my hand baby
    Don't ever look back
    Let the world around us just fall apart
    Baby we can make it if we're heart to heart

    And we can build this dream together
    Standing strong forever
    Nothing's gonna stop us now
    And if this world runs out of lovers
    We'll still have each other
    Nothing's gonna stop us
    Nothing's gonna stop us now

    I'm so glad I found you
    I'm not gonna lose you
    Whatever it takes I will stay here with you
    Take it to the good times
    See it through the bad times
    Whatever it takes is what I'm gonna do

    Let 'em say we're crazy, what do they know
    Put your arms around me baby
    Don't ever let go
    Let the world around us just fall apart
    Baby we can make it if we're heart to heart

    And we can build this dream together
    Standing strong forever
    Nothing's gonna stop us now
    And if this world runs out of lovers
    We'll still have each other
    Nothing's gonna stop us
    Nothing's gonna stop us

    Ooh, all that I need is you
    You're all that I ever need
    And all that I want to do
    Is hold you forever, forever and ever, hey

    And we can build this dream together
    Standing strong forever
    Nothing's gonna stop us now
    And if this world runs out of lovers
    We'll still have each other
    Nothing's gonna stop us
    Nothing's gonna stop us, whoa
    Nothing's gonna stop us now, oh no

    Hey baby, I know, hey baby
    Nothing's gonna stop us
    Hey baby, woo, nothing, hey baby
    Nothing's gonna stop us now yeahWriter/s: Albert Louis Hammond, Diane Eve Warren

  • James from LeicesterMusicFan99 - people will always associate this song as the main tune to Mannequin - fans of the film will recognise both songs. But for me - This will always be the 'love theme' to the film.
  • Jg from NcHey Music Fan 99, you don't get to choose what song will be the theme song of a movie. Just read everyone else's comments and you can clearly see what this song meant to others. Millions of others would agree that this song is it. Many wouldn't be able to even remember the other song. This song doesn't start playing during the credits. It actually starts at the ending of the mannequin shedding scene and continues into the short wedding scene and then into the credits. Big difference because everyone would definitely be seated. I guess you stood up and walked out by this point. Don't exaggerate to make your point. It makes you look stupid.
  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxGood song used in a godawful flick.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyWas nominated for Best Song at the 1987 Academy Awards {Lost to "I've Had the Time of My Life" from the movie "Dirty Dancing"}!!!
  • Music Fan99 from Houston, TxThis was the song that played during the ending credits of the movie. This was by no means the "theme song"... a movie's theme never gets played for the very 1st time while people are standing up and leaving the theater while the end credits roll. "In My Wildest Dreams" by Belinda Carlisle was the main title theme with the animation etc... which thematically was repeated many times during thr film. Get a f--king clue before publishing wrong information about both movies and their songs.
  • Linc from Beaumont, TxThe Mannequin Movie was soooo awful! I thought it was dumb when it came out and I was only 7!
  • Helen from Logan City, AustraliaThis is one of the best motivation songs around and this song will be played at a fundraiser for cancer along with many other motivational songs for the night. This is to enable cancer sufferers to forget about their cancers for one night and enjoy themselves. Helen QLD
  • Nicola from London, EnglandThis song is great to sing to it, and a very powerful ballad. This song is romantic, and a great way to dance to.
  • Aureleo from Ponda- Goa, India"Nothing's gonna Stop.." is probably one of the best Rock Ballads I've ever heard.
  • Shay from Key West, FlThe Starting Line did a cover of this song...it's probably way more cool
  • Nige from Southampton, EnglandOne of the most requested songs at Wedding receptions as the bride and groom leave
  • Sarah from Ottawa, CanadaHehehe....I used to love this song when I was 6 years old because I think that's the first time I watched Mannequin. It is a great song.
