Jennifer Rush - “The Power of Love”
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 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
This song is also sung by the pop star Tracy Huang (黄鶯鶯) from Taiwan.
