The Power Of The Dream (As performed at the Opening Ceremony of the 1996 Olympic Games)

LYRICS

Deep within each heart
There lies a magic spark
That lights the fire of our imagination
And since the dawn of man
The strength of just "I can"
Has brought together people of all nations

There’s nothing ordinary
In the living of each day
There’s a special part
Every one of us will play

Feel the flame forever burn
Teaching lessons we must learn
To bring us closer to the power of the dream
As the world gives us its best
To stand apart from all the rest
It is the power of the dream that brings us here

Your mind will take you far
The rest is just pure heart
You’ll find your fate is all your own creation
Every boy and girl
As they come into this world
They bring the gift of hope and inspiration

Feel the flame forever burn
Teaching lessons we must learn
To bring us closer to the power of the dream
The world unites in hope and peace
We pray that it will always be
It is the power of the dream that brings us here

There’s so much strength in all of us
Every woman child and man
It’s the moment that you think you can’t
You’ll discover that you can

Feel the flame forever burn
Teaching lessons we must learn
To bring us closer to the power of the dream
The world unites in hope and peace
We pray that it will always be
It is the power of the dream that brings us here

Feel the flame forever burn
Teaching lessons we must learn
To bring us closer to the power of the dream
The world unites in hope and peace
We pray that it will always be
It is the power of the dream that brings us here

The power of the dream
The faith in things unseen
The courage to embrace your fear
No matter where you are
To reach for your own star
To realize the power of the dream

Elle me donne le pouvoir de poursuivre ma route et de pouvoir un jour toucher à mon rêve ....

Elle me rappelle que rien est impossible. Pas juste la chanson mais Céline en général. J'ai 12 ans et je l'ai écouter avant une compétition et j'ai terminer dans les trois première!

J'écoutais souvent cette chanson quand j'ai rencontrée mon conjoint. Même si je ne comprend pas tout les mots en anglais, je l'écoute encore aujourd'hui.

This song just tears me to pieces each time I hear it. It reminds me that dreams do not carry expiry dates and if you can dream it, you can bring it to reality!

This song means a lot to me, because it inspires and lifts my spirit to get a better life with my daughter. I listen to this song when I am feeling down and it helps to keep me focused on my dreams.

This song always reminds me never to give in on my dreams, because if everyone gave in on what they really wanted then the world would not be the place we know it. I have met the man of my dreams and this song reminds me never to give up on him, and to realise that although it may take time, the power of the human heart may cause him to surprise me. Thank you for this song Celine.
