POM coverIntelligent Music Project I feat. JOHN LAWTON
THE POWER OF MIND

THE POWER OF MIND е концептуален рок албум за позитивната житейска нагласа и вярата в доброто и любовта, класически разработен в сонатна форма.Основните композиции и музикални теми се сливат една в друга, обединени от изискана хармония и многобразие на мотиви. Водещ акцент в звученето на албума е поставен върху вокалните аранжименти, характерни със задълбочена и виртуозна полифоничност.
Завършените версии на оркестрациите отговарят на визията на продуцента и са разработени с участието на музикантите. В голямата си част музикалните теми, въведения, преходи и развития на мелодиите са по идея на автора и представляват неразделна част от словесните и музикални послания на албума.

THE POWER OF MIND е едно страхотно освобождаване с класически хард рок, съчетаващ едновременно оптимистично и блус звучене, а легендарният Джон Лоутън придава неповторима дълбочина на този музикален проект със специфичния си глас и многостранен вокален талант.

The Power Of Mind is a conceptual rock album aimed at people’s faith in good and love. We believe that our music will lead its own existence and will carry our message for positive attitude on the way to success and happiness to all the listeners. The album has been composed in a sonata form and follows the classic model of the rock opera. The underlying themes and the songs that flow into each other can be characterized by a variety of motives united in exquisite harmony. A focus has been put on vocal orchestrations which impresses with its virtuosic polifonicity and profundity. Milen Vrabevski, the author and producer of the album, also participates in it as a piano and guitar player.

The final versions of the orchestrations correspond to the vision of the producer and were developed with the participation of the musicians. The orchestrations were recorded with the Pleven Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Georgi Krassimirov – Gerasim.

Most of the themes, developments and transitions between the developments (vocal, for piano, for orchestra, for acoustic guitar, motives for solo guitar, etc.) were ideas of the author and serve as an inseparable part of the development of the verbal and music messages of the album.

Music, lyrics and orchestration of all songs: Milen Vrabevski (with the exception of Intro: М. Vrabevski – М. Goranov). M. Vrabevski worked on arrangements with the band and on lyrics with John. Thank you guys for the value added!

Recorded at Max Sound Studios in Pleven, Bulgaria (March 2010 – Feb 2012). The music material has been recorded live with actual instruments and with minimum computer interference. The mixing was done by Maxim Goranov and Ivo Stefanov with the help of Milen, Koko and Gerasim.

We would like to extend our warmest thanks to our guest musicians:

The music star of the Republic of Macedonia – Karolina Gocheva (a unique part in 8/);

Georgi Krassimirov – Gerasim, Rossi Diakovska and Acho Zabverski who performed some of the piano parts in the album on a Steinway grand piano;

Michail Yosifov, Velislav Stoyanov and Dimitar Lyolev (brass section in 10/);

The Pleven Philharmonic Orchestra for the orchestra parts, violin solo performances (Nina Stoyanova and Chavdar Valkov) and the oboe soloist (Asparuh Ivanov).

Hello everybody and thank you for choosing us!

You have in your hands the result of the creative quest of a medical doctor who has tried to    overcome mercantilism in music.

I will be very happy, if you like my concept.

Thanks once again!

Producer’s Note (for connoisseurs!):

Here is how it all happened:

It was in the second half of March 2010 when I got into the studio and recorded some of my music ideas, two of which were in the form of unpolished piano instrumentals. My intention was to simply present them to the band so that they could add them to some of their own pieces which I had already liked, thus arriving at a new album which I was invited to produce. At that stage I didn’t realize that I would later take part in the album as an author and a performer.

Something unexpected, however, happened over the next few weeks: I would wake up every morning with 2-3 music ideas in my head, trying to find a common ground between them. I realized that the time had come for me to come up with a conceptual rock album. It turned out that no such album had been produced in Bulgaria. No sooner said than done:

In April 2010 I entered the studio again and recorded the whole demo version of the album from the beginning to the end on a piano, an acoustic guitar, and partially an electric guitar. I wrote most of the vocals and Max added drums, bass and solos, which fitted within my music concept. On 28th April we arrived at the complete demo version of a conceptual album which has never been issued in Bulgaria before. I was writing the lyrics on my way from Sofia to Pleven. I knew well what I wanted to say.

I asked Maxim to play what I couldn’t and I was pestering him until he played it may way. The other musicians contributed to the whole process with valuable ideas and one could tell how experienced they were. The demo version underwent some changes along the way. We were all aware we were working on a serious project. What followed were the recordings of the guest musicians and the live orchestrations. We put in a whole year of hard work but I believe it was worth it.

In the beginning I was speaking ironically of my own diligence as my last “serious”  experience of composing music went back in the day at the English High School in Varna, during my last two years, when I was awarded 3-4 awards for my own music pieces within the framework of the annual school  festivals. It was about that time when I started, among other things, playing the guitar, and later when I was in my last year at school, the piano. Being a self-learner and not striving after a career in music, I was extremely grateful to my mother who would always find a way to provide me with the musical instruments I needed regardless of how belated my wishes were.

Since then I’ve been having the feeling of something unfinished. I have always imagined completing a project together with one of the most valuable people in my life – my dearest fellow student and friend Svetoslav Stoyanov. We used to play together at school and to some extent later, as university students. We have lived through    unforgettable moments and it was great that we could experience the same happy times again while working on some of the elements of the present album.

Svetoslav gave the ideas (the music intervention) for the acoustic solo of 3/ and the rock fury in the end of 5/. We had the chance to work for a few days in Atlanta where Svetlio currently lives, and it was really great. It is in Atlanta where I got the idea for the orchestrated theme of the final of 5/, elements of which can be found in 2/ and 13/ as well. We also worked very hard on the orchestrations of 3/ and 4/.

I would like to thank Svetlio here. It was wonderful, just like in the good old times.

I developed my concept in a sonata form:

1. Exposition /2. Development /3. Reprise with a Coda.

An attempt is being made for an additional internal development of part 2/.

A combination between music and verbal messages has been sought for. The three intricately interwoven plotlines have already been realized in the musical Azure Square by the director Boris Pankin.

The topics of the verbal messages are as follows:

1.            The power of mind; the positive attitude on our way to happiness;

2.            The impulse of love and its realization as a result of 1;

3.            A precondition for a positive attitude and a good mood – a favorite rock band.

In the intro we present in an ironic way the depressive message of A Prayer for Rain while at the same time we draw a parallel with the past of Diana Express. That’s how we prepare the listener for the optimistic messages that are going to be conveyed in the rest of the album. I sat down facing Maxim and asked him to refresh my memory as to how A Prayer for Rain started. While he was doing that I managed to formulate the opposite message. I explained to Max what I wanted and he just went into the studio and played it as he had understood it. Right after that the band added the vocals. From the start we were unanimous as to how the beginning of the album should sound: we agreed to avoid the overture style, to rely on a brief and clear formulation of the verbal message that the whole album is supposed to convey.

The main music themes are not even present in the introduction. They are introduced in the next record, developed through exploiting all our ideas and reach their culmination at the heart of the development – records 8/ and 9/, on the way to the    reprise and the coda in 13/ and 14/.

The essence of the exposition has been revealed by means of 2 music themes – in Gm & F. Intricately interwoven in a rhapsody style and enriched by a complicated vocal composition, the two themes create a feeling which resembles the storm of the thinking process. It is with those two themes that the album starts and ends but they are also being developed in other emblematic parts of the album.

In the reprise the themes in Gm & F are presented with greater determination. It is in this part where we can find the perfect dialogue between an organ and a guitar in the final solos.

A subtheme, suitable for parallel modulation from Gm into B , has been derived from the theme in Gm. It is introduced in the refrain of record 2/: ‘Our thoughts are a little universe in us…’ as a counterpoint of the main part. It goes through the rich vocal    ensemble of 3/ and comes back to 13/ but this time with new lyrics and as a separate motif for a new counterpoint part of a theme in the parallel key B  in which the record is written. In this way the optimistic message which at first sounds tentatively in a minor key gradually gets “lighter” and is emphasized in a parallel major key in the finale. That’s how the message has been reinforced.

Another modulation is done with the introduction of the strings to the piano in the intro of 2/ in Gm, the full idea of which has been developed as a theme in the finale of 5/, where it is already in F#m, but also in 13/, where the piano accompaniment is in Gm before it gets into the parallel B .

The beginning has two keys and the two records written in those keys flow into each other as in a rhapsody. For example, the refrains are in counterpoint to each other. What is more, the solo of 3/ is a stanza of 2/, and 2/ Mind Power is something like an intro to 3/ Two Hearts, etc.

The developments start with 4/, where the refrain and the stanza are counterpunal and the theme of the orchestration is developed into a polyphonic vocal composition in the finale of the record, as well as in the part written in minor key (in a key (Am)  parallel to the key of 9/). In the finale the sound gets harder so as to prepare the       listener for the next rock pieces 5/, where I start the presentation of the band with uncle Max. The finesse is suddenly expressed by means of a massive symphonic and orchestra composition. What follows is my vision of a dynamic rock ballad 6/.

Then we have again rock coming from the heart 7/ in order to emphasize the key role the style we create music in plays for the raising of an open-minded and   energetic generation; and then comes ‘the truth’ 8/, where I link parts of key themes that have been raised up to now (mainly in F and C) with transitions from Am to A, which is the idea for an internal development provided that А is the dominating key in the middle part of the album. The piece starts with a development in Am which goes to F and С this time as a concerto for piano and   orchestra.

The theme in F on the piano is in harmony with the strings theme from 3/, and 3/ it is in harmony with the theme from 8/. Moving to C, the piano again goes with elements from 4/, where the strings and the vocal are in harmony with the theme from the piano in 8/.

That is how we continue in 9/ with a development for a piano, a violin and an orchestra on the guitar theme of 8/ which flows into a typical acoustic record creating an    atmosphere typical for the theme. It is in this record where Koko plays the contrabass. The middle part bridge starts with the initial theme of the violins and the final vocal part from 4/.

Then follow a record of the type swing, 10/, but with a rock finale as well as two other rock pieces to the reprise which starts with piece 13/ which was mentioned above.

Then we have again rock coming from the heart 7/ in order to emphasize the key role the style we create music in plays for the raising of an open-minded and energetic generation; and then comes ‘the truth’ 8/, where I link parts of key themes that have been raised up to now (mainly in F and C) with transitions from Am to A, which is the idea for an internal development provided that А is the dominating key in the middle part of the album. The piece starts with a development in Am which goes to F and С this time as a concerto for piano and orchestra.

The theme in F on the piano is in harmony with the strings theme from 3/, and 3/ it is in harmony with the theme from 8/. Moving to C, the piano again goes with elements from 4/, where the strings and the vocal are in harmony with the theme from the piano in 8/.

That is how we continue in 9/ with a development for a piano, a violin and an orchestra on the guitar theme of 8/ which flows into a typical acoustic record creating an     atmosphere typical for the theme. It is in this record where Koko plays the contrabass. The middle part bridge starts with the initial theme of the violins and the final vocal part from 4/.

Then follow a record of the type swing, 10/, but with a rock finale as well as two other rock pieces to the reprise which starts with piece 13/ which was mentioned above.

The album ends in the acknowledged rock practice – we thank the audience and summarize the verbal message we’ve been trying to convey to the listeners. Right after that the instrumental potential of all members of the group is unleashed against the background of additional orchestrations of the already formulated two main music themes in records 2/ and 3/, i.e. in Gm and F. In the very end there are elements of the hymn style and a massive finale in F.

Thе verbal messages are based on some old Bulgarian beliefs as well as on some of the ideas presented in a number of recently published books by various authors which deal with issues such as the power of thought, the importance of our attitude, the concentration and visualization of what we want to achieve, the creative  beginning as well as the strong interaction between the conscious and the subconscious on our way to success. The truth about positive attitude and happiness which depends on it is not very popular among Bulgarians and has been emphasized in the message the album is trying to convey.

It is in this background where the theme for desired love evolves. It has its origin in our mind and it copes up as if we have programmed it. This happy event happens also with the help of the positive attitude streaming from our favorite rock band – a strong emotional factor leading to success and happiness.

The concept finds its realization in the the musical Azure Square which was created in one breath by the director Boris Pankin and his team of talented young actors. The dialogues and characters which have been aligned to my   concept have been developed with the active participation of Boris Pankin. The music and stage developments have been done by the music director Evgeni Gospodinov and the vision has been created by the production team: Mila Iskrenova, choreography; Peter Mitev, costumes; Ekatenira Hristova, scenography and multimedia. Their joint work can serve as an allegory for one of the most inspiring leitmotivs of Azure Square: SUCCESS HAS TO DO WITH HUMANISM!

We hope that we have managed to convey to all those who will listen to the album our positive attitude to life and art. We are fully aware that we have to be more persistent and purposeful in our pursuit of happiness. Why don’t you try that, too!

Our thanks to God and our supportive families and friends!

Tons of thanks for choosing us!

Текстове

Intro

No matter how long I look
No matter how hard I stare
The desert sky is no desert
It is blue sky
I learned to see
I saw the light
It starts with me

Mind Power

Once upon a time we knew, but somehow we forgot
That good intentions within us arise out of our thoughts
So realize that thoughts can be a precious force in you
That through your mind you’re making real
Your very own successes, too!

Very often we would blame, when angry and stressed out
Accusing strangers, friends and then hard life itself, no doubt
For being unsuccessful yet, when really it’s our mind
Our consciousness is what creates
The dream life that we long to find

Chorus

Feel the power of your mind
2nd voice: Our thoughts within us
Bringing the success you’ve dreamed of
2nd voice: Create a new world inside
We can change the world our kind
2nd voice: Mind power helps us to influence all things
Since we’re sure and strong in our own thoughts right now
2nd voice: Bringing us love and light
Think positively free
2nd voice: It’s me deciding, I create
A new determined me, you see?
2nd voice: In our minds we should be

Happiness is not a myth; it is a state of mind
Of the body and the soul, for when you’re so inclined
To let your thoughts create in you possibilities
To be exactly who you are
And shine the light the world can see

 

Two Hearts

Days and nights on end two hearts embrace
And grope for memories that hide so deep inside them, seeking a trace
Wishing time would simply slow its pace
And hungering to peek inside themselves and see love’s face

Miracles might just be what they find
Somehow they steadily create them in their minds, they’re granted like that
All’s within their grasp, it’s theirs to last
Everything, if they desire it…

Here they are, accommodating minds now
As the source, from where abundance springs
That’s the way they know it grants them true love
Everything they dream of can be theirs if they just think it…

Chorus

And yet again they call
They know that thoughts do all
And yet again they call for all

Life is quite astonishing they find
It all depends upon the way they choose to live it – and on their mind
What you’re focused on is what you get
Doing good is rooted deep inside themselves – it fills their lives

Chorus

Feel the power, of your mind
2nd voice: Here they are, accommodating minds now
3rd voice: Our thoughts within us
Bringing the success you’ve dreamed of
2nd voice: As the source, from where abundance springs
3rd voice: Create a new world inside
We can change the world our kind
2nd voice: That’s the way they know it grants them true love
3rd voice: Mind power helps us to influence all things
Since we’re sure and strong in our own thoughts right now
2nd voice: Everything they dream of can be theirs if they just think it…
3rd voice: Bringing us love and light
And yet again they call for all
2nd voice: And yet again they call
They know that thoughts do all

Love’s Light Shining

Now I know
Inside me loud and clear I hear the call of sacred voice, blessed from above
There I go
The two of us are meant to be as one and I rejoice – it is our love

A dream come true, a dream of starting something new
Heading towards the future free
Into the blue, a cozy place just made for two
And I’m in you and you’re in me, ooh yeah

Refrain

Love light’s here to shine, and our hearts align, for love’s so divine
2nd voice: And truly it starts to shine, and our hearts align aaah
Perfect joy is now mine, when our hands entwine and life is so fine
2nd voice: And this perfection is mine, and life is so fine

Now I know
I always keep on listening to this voice in good or bad, time after time
Then I see
You gave me hope and faith so I could share all that I’ve had, and my lights shine

All we do, our love it keeps on shining through
Our spirits freer than we knew
This good we’ve found,
It’s time to spread it all around
And you’re in me and I’m in you

Refrain +

Now I know
I always keep on listening to this voice in good or bad, time after time
Then I see
You give me hope and faith so I could share all that I’ve had, and my lights shine

Coda

Inside it’s shining so bright/and our song’s taking flight/and it wakes us at night/it must be love, yeah alright!
2nd voice:
Inside it’s shining so bright and so clear and our song is taking flight
Wakes us at night, and it’s alright, as our love is shining bright
I’ve got the world in my sights/ and I’m scaling the heights/ when you’re there next to me/ then love is all I can see!

Max Rock

I’m sitting here filthy, shaggy, has-been flop
It’s Rock’n’Roll I’m playin’
In my dreams I’m young and rich and at the top
And someone else is payin’

I look for chicks who have a single skill
When I take them home I simply get my fill
I’m even fine with sleazy pop and it’s excess
I’ll sell out all the Rock’n’Roll for love finesse
Chorus:

For love finesse
I’ll sell my very soul for some love finesse

These days there are some starlets, man, they are so hot!
I’m half-intrigued and half-repulsed, but deterred – I’m not
I lay it to ‘em straight, now: “Look here, pussycat,
Who cares about your brains when you’ve got legs like that!”

So why should I put up with raucous, tuneless shrieks?
Instead I get my kicks with perfect hot physiques
I’m never gonna stop now, I always take the best
It saves my tired ears and gives my nerves a rest

Bridge to solo

And in this mind of mine, from fate there comes a sign
So once again I’m getting all my thoughts in line
You know just what we need now, yeah, to make it pay?
A crazy rockin’ solo, so get out of my way, hey-hey!

Of course I’d rather work with chicks who sing for real
With perfect pitch and rhythm
They’re fine in other ways and put out on display
What plastic surgeons give‘em

So I help myself, picking out the best
I take what I can handle, to hell with all the rest
I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m no artiste
But Rock’n’Roll and hot chicks – I’ve got that at least!

Fairytale

For you I am the true path, your way to joy
For you I turn on all the light
For you I stop at nothing, I soar so high
In you there burns a flame so bright

Many days I wandered in fire and pain
Knowing how I felt when I was trapped in lonely chains
Many days I searched for love within my dreams
But now I see it’s here for real, it’s right inside of me

Chorus

You will flow into me, we will flow into fairytale
And who cares if it’s make-believe, it still warms my heart
And I hope that with you, we can make it come true wholesale
Living this fairytale of ours – long awaited true love, ooh yeah

Today you made me see how the Universe
It speaks in us in every way
It chose to show all others with our true love
Its grandeur ours now to display

Many days I wandered in fire and pain
Knowing how I felt when I was trapped in lonely chains
Many days I searched for love within my dreams
But now I see it’s here for real, it’s right inside of me

Bridge

All the best within you, make it part of me
Let me slip inside them, all your thoughts and dreams
Everything inside your heart I will not betray
Let’s make this fairytale come true for all of us today

Rock ‘N’ Roll Is My Thing

Yeah, Rock ‘n’ Roll is my thing
And I’ll keep it going late into the night
Yeah Rock is what I sing
There’s no doubt about it, rockin’ feels alright

Yeah Rock ‘n’ Roll is my thing
Come on, rhythm section, play it loud and clear
Let me hear you shout and sing
Give me three cheers
For the joy I’m bringing here tonight…

Refrain

And here I am, making a new band up
I’m choosing, not losing, laying down the tracks
And Rock is what I’m choosing
Always gonna play it, never turning back

Now I’m ready to play you Rock ‘n’ Roll
Oh, I’ll bring you Rock’ n’Rroll
I wanna, I’m gonna bring joy to your soul
‘Cause I play Rock ‘n’ Roll, for you, yeah
Oh yeah, for you I’ll give my all
I’m really, really ready to give you all I’ve got
Yeah Rock’ n’Roll is my thing
Come on, rhythm section, play it loud and clear
Let me hear you shout and sing
And give me three cheers
For the joy I’m bringing here tonight…
For the joy I’m bringing here tonight…

Bridge to solo

Not only, not only in my thoughts right now
I can change the world with this Rock’n’Roll, yeah-yeah
I don’t waste my time with morons
Stupidity is catching like the flu
You gotta feel this Rock tsunami
It’s not for the fainthearted
My hopes, yeah they all depend on you

The Search

And in the search, the search for truth, I gather thoughts together like a sleuth
And in the search, the search for love, I find it’s you I can’t stop thinking of

Late in the night, brand new reflections
Slip in my dreams making me ready
To understand your mane conceptions
And to create love between us right now

Power in us and in our feelings
Comes on its own, when we are searching
When we’re all set, steady and certain
Our every dream allows us to fly so high

We own the world, once we can realize
That faith in ourselves is faith in success too
We have the chance with clear mental vision
Seeing our world richer and full of love

All that we see is just our viewpoint
The mind itself is energy streaming
Knowing this truth, inspiration comes easy
Sure in our thoughts, we simply move on ahead

Springtime

Birds are singing so clear
Saying springtime is once more here
With the sound of a dove
We gaze at the face of love

Hear the sound of a stream
You’re into a loving dream
With the blossoming boughs
Love surges inside us now

Chorus

With the birds of spring comes the love they bring
It’s inside us now, it’s in everything
Our light is shining above
In perfect rhythm with songs they sing

With our thoughts pure and clean
Respect is if in all dream
The more goodness we seek
We’ll do better both you and me

Bridge

You help me discover thrills hidden deep in me
2nd voice: Hidden deep down inside of me
You make me more open, faithful and oh so free
2nd voice: Clear thoughts come easily
Bringing us joy today
Inside us you show the way
Making us so free to play

Counterpoint

I know you’re inside me, springtime
You can fly so high, you’re creating you and me
There is something fateful in you
You can touch the sky, I’ll be there under your spell down
This is our time, spring is all they sing

In Rhythm With You

You alone will lead me down the trail of truth
You alone will be there when walking days are through
You’re the only one who reads me like a book
Got me seeing love now everywhere I look

Right now, right now, at this very time
I feel your life’s in synch now perfectly with mine
I know that I can’t stand it, being on my own
With you here beside me, I know that I’ve come home.
Chorus

I’ve caught your rhythm
Yeah, that crazy rhythm
Driving us so wild now, the whole night through
Say you’re mine forever, always be together
‘Cause I never met someone like you

Together you and I, we’re locked in perfect time
Took so long to find our in-synch paradise
You alone will lead me down the trail of truth
You alone will be there when the walking days are through

Bridge to the first solo

And when I think about you every now and then
I want to be in rhythm with you once again
So if that’s my choice and that’s what I decide
Just guess who, just guess who shows up at my side, alright!

Coda

I know, you are my way
Determined and in rhythm, you set my thoughts ablaze
I’ve got one dream today
To be in step with you now
Until our final days

Now I Know

Love is meant for weaklings, but I’m oh so strong
So I thought until I saw the light, how could I be so wrong?
So right now, let’s talk this through, so there is no doubt
I’m not tryin’ to throw the blame around, just want this figured out

Chorus

A. Now I know what is there (Now I know just what love is)
Simply go anywhere
Now I know what love is there is no doubt, no more doubt
So it’s time to finish with all that, there’s no turnin’ back
B. Now I know, yeah I know deep down in my soul
The life without love ain’t worth living
You and I must decide, gotta go for broke right now
And leave behind our misgivings

All the sorrow I see, will it never end?
The whole time it’s right before my eyes
The dream of love you send
So right now, let’s erase this pout, so there is no doubt
I’m not tryin’ to throw the blame around, just want this figured out

New Rhythm

Sure, it’s sometimes hard to put things into words
Still I’d like to try to share what I’ve learned
‘Cause I’d love to see you cover
Infinite truths about this world of ours
That it’s in our hands, let’s recognize our powers
Let us put all the accents that matter
We get more of the things that we think about
When we see what we want in our mind’s eye
And we focus on love, there’s no doubt

Refrain

New rhythm breaking through
     New rhythm yeah
When life is built on love so true
     Life is built on love
New style and point of view
     New style I rise up singing
When I rise up with strength anew

We are all unique and special in this place
Everyone’s a star and everyone’s an ace
When in our thoughts and in our mind’s eye
We give out love and get one in return
And we grow rich quickly once we understand
Wealth is merely a humble blue ribbon
For the ones who are able to share
And to add to the value of their lives
And of others and treat them so fair

Refrain

Mental direction and vision
A dream that can go where it leads
Our goal in a life is to have a goal
‘Cause the dream is not all that it seems…

Refrain

Yeah, I think our lovin’ was there
Simply new it was you
     In my thoughts it was you
A kind a lovin’ to share
Oh, oh, (yeah) to share with you
     It’s comin’ in through

Love in the World

I want to melt into your gaze and never more return
This sea of love it swallows me and then I can discern
Everything awash in kindness
It is all over you
Everything in you is love
Oh yeah, a sign from above

Chorus

Nights with you /have made me sure that miracles occur
2nd voice: Have made me sure/ that our passion will endure
Days with you I have made me sure that love lives in this world
2nd voice: In you true love lives in this world
Nights with you have made me see that miracles can be
2nd voice: Have made me see/that our passions set us free
Days with you have made love’s world appear for you and me
2nd voice: Love’s world appears for you and me

I know that I am with you now since you are in my thoughts
For so long now I’ve seen your image
And felt the joy you’ve brought
And before I even met you
In my mind it was you
I knew that love’s world was true
I knew our love was so true

Days never ending nights we are spending
Love in this world is ours
Before I met you, the image that shown through
Was love between you and me, ooh yeah

Finale

Days and nights on end we’ve really tried
With love to build a world in thought and sound
A fable, a gentle guide

So we thank you all for keeping stride
With what we heard, so let’s review it now
Just one more time

Chorus

Feel the power, of your mind
2nd voice: Here they are, accommodating minds now
3rd voice: Our thoughts within us
Bringing the success you’ve dreamed of
2nd voice: As the source, from where abundance springs
3rd voice: Create a new world inside
We can change the world our kind
2nd voice: That’s the way they know it grants them true love
3rd voice: Mind power helps us to influence all things
Since we’re sure and strong in our own thoughts right now
2nd voice: Everything they dream of can be theirs if they just think it…
3rd voice: Bringing us love and light
And yet again they call for all
2nd voice: And yet again they call
They know that thoughts do all
