Jennifer Rush ♪ The Power of Love

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

Powerful in its lyrics, and powerful in the vocal expression necessitated by the tune. It starts, rather unusually, by describing the physical act of copulation, in the morning. (Note: it uses the phrase “rolling” as a euphemism for “pumping”) The morning is the most alert moment in a human animal's diurnal cycle, and copulation in the morning, with a loved one, is one of the greatest simple pleasure of life. (others are: eating, shitting, sleeping)

The song The Power of Love (1985), is a song sung by Jennifer Rush (born 1960), and also made popular by several other singers including Laura Branigan (1957 to 2004) and Céline Dion (born 1968).

The Power of Love

The song is written by: Gunther Mende, Candy DeRouge, Jennifer Rush, Mary Susan Applegate.

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 am 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

  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
Céline Dion, The Power of Love

This song is also sung by the pop star Tracy Huang (黄鶯鶯) from Taiwan.
