I used to think that I could not go on
And life was nothing but an awful song
But now I know the meaning of true love
I'm leaning on the everlasting arms


If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

[1]
I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

See I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me, oh

If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

[Repeat 1]

Hey, cuz I believe in me, oh

If I can see it, then I can be it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

[Repeat 1]

Hey, if I just spread my wings
I can fly
I can fly
I can fly, hey
If I just spread my wings
I can fly
Fly-eye-eye

    This song actually gives you step by step instructions on how to visualize what you want and manifest your dreams and desires. it starts out as a reflection of how each day they begin by clearly stating out loud and affirming their desire, thus making it real in their mind. "i believe i can fly". "i believe i can touch the sky". then they tell how often they do this: "i think about it every night and day" once they have expressed what they want and affirmed it and shared how they are bringing this about they add one more valuable thing; they explain why they think this process is going to work for them: "if i can see it-then i can do it-if i just believe it-there's nothing to it!" then in conclusion, like when we pray, there is a completion of the thought process, one final statement which anchors everything again and holds the idea in place: "i believe i can sore" and even more powerful vision of flying) "i see me running through that open door" and then one final anchor: " i believe i can fly". i love to sing this song. it has brought me through depression, anxiety and worries i've had over "not having enough" i know this didn't need to be said but i needed to say it. i think everyone who already posted said basically the same thing. there is power in numbers!! everybody should be flying...so let's do it. it's a new year and we have so much to do and look forward to go for it and happy new year 2014!

    there may be obstacles that block your path to life, but you can fly over them, threw doors that open just for you, and if you believe in yourself you may pass your test and get through the course, if you think about achieving your goals and how, then it makes it easier for you to establish confidence and you can do anything, even fly, see people believed in their dreams, and look, now we have airplanes

    this means that you believe that you can do anything that you put your mind to. DOn't ever doubt yourself because nothing in thios world is impossible to acheive. These words are very powerful and touch me every time i listen to this song. It has such lesson that everybody should listen because it's saying that you can do anything.
