Mariah Carey – When You Believe lyrics

Many nights we've prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood

Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains long
Before we knew we could (oh yes)

There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe (oh yeah)

In this time of fear
When prayers so often prove in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds
So swiftly flown away

Yet now I'm standing here
My heart's so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say

There can be miracles, when you believe(When you believe)
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve(You can achieve)
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe

They don't always happen when you ask
And it's easy to give in to your fears(oh)
But when your blinded by your pain
Can't see your way straight through the rain
A small but still, resilient voice
Says love is very near(Yeah Yeah)

There can be miracles(miracles)
When you believe(lord when you believe oh ho)
Through hope is frail(through hope is frail)
It's hard to kill(it's hard to kill oh oh)
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe(ooh ooh)
Somehow you will
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

You will when you believe
Just believe(2 times) (oh yeah)
You will when you believe

    Hi, 2 all
    I like this song, song q 2 para sa isang guy na nagpapasaya skin, I don't know my feelings for him, but I guess I'm fall, because he's very kind. A good rocker vocalist in banda. Na meet q cia last sun, when I buy almusal, then he get my #, and txtm8 for 5 days, sobrang bait nya, that's why I like him. But I guess we getting to know each other, guys sa sandali naming pagkakakilala, para kcng me kakaiba, me something aq na ibang nararamfaman for him, I hope na, totoo ciang mabait and never na cnungalin, god thak you, because I found him, were bestfriend together, and I hope, na magtagal ung friendship namin, I'm happy with him tlga, with all my life now lang aq nkakilala ng totong kainbigan.

    It is about god. Moses and his people, others messanger, and also us. When you believe in god. In this time of fear, when prayer often prove in vain. Because of that reason. Many of human didn't believe in god.
    Although they need god, because human is a weak creature. But they loose hope. Toward god.
    We like to hear this song. Because in our deep heart. We realize or not. We want god to help us. And we miss god really much.
