BELIEVE IN THE MUSIC
by JEFFREY ERIC FUNK

VERSE 1
Calling out from the darkness
Voices of hope echo through the land
Shining bright, there's a new dawn
Driven by dreams, we will take a stand
We can
Search for promise and truth
Reach for stars in the sky
We'll find peace in the wonder
Rhythm and rhyme
And with music in my heart
I'm gonna fly!

CHORUS
You've got to believe in the music
Feel its power set you free
Believe in the music
I can feel it lifting, pushing
Calling, guiding me...
Yes, I believe in the music

VERSE 2
Just imagine a future
Lifted by love
Let your heart fly free
Dream of better tomorrows
We'll make the world
Sing in harmony
You'll see
With a voice that is strong
We'll have hope we can share
With our song we can chase away
All despair
If you reach out or call me, I will be there

CHORUS
You've got to believe in the music
Feel its power set you free
Believe in the music
I can feel it lifting, pushing
Calling, guiding me...
Yes, I believe in the music

BRIDGE
Oh, I'll lift my hands
I'll lift them high
Reach for the mountains
Touch the sky
I'll pull the stars down
One by one
The magic of music
Has begun

CHORUS 2x
