Only you have the power within you...

I REALLY love musicals and treasure my collection of soundtracks.  Listening to them seems to help me find my "creative mode" rather rapidly.  They can take me from mundane moments to Idea Land after just a couple of songs.  I get involved in the story being told with words and music, and before I know it, my creative self comes to the fore.  Somewhere on the Thoughts, Inspiration, Answers... page of my website I mention a little about this.


Anyway, today I was listening to "The New Starlight Express" and remembered just how much I LOVE this bit, The Starlight Sequence...it's a reminder that true power comes from within.



RUSTY
Starlight Express, Starlight Express...

STARLIGHT
Only you have the power within you.
Just believe in yourself -
The sea will part before you,
Stop the rain, turn the tide.
If only you use the power within you
Needn't beg the world
To turn around and help you
If you draw on what you have within you
Somewhere deep inside.

RUSTY
Starlight Express, starlight express,
Are you real, yes or no?
Starlight Express, answer me yes.
I don't want you to go.

STARLIGHT
Rusty you're blind, look in your mind -
I'm there. Nothing's new
The Starlight Express is no more nor less
Than you Rusty. I am you.
I'm you and

STARLIGHT / RUSTY
Only you/I am the Starlight.
Have the power within you/I can achieve
Just believe in yourself/anything
The sea will part before you
Stop the rain and turn the tide/
All the things I didn't believe.
If only you/I am the Starlight.
Have the power within you/I can achieve
Just believe in yourself/anything
The sea will part before you
Stop the rain and turn the tide/
All the things I didn't believe.
If only you/I am the Starlight,
Use the power within you/I can see it through.
Needn't beg the world to turn around and help you
If you draw on what is deep inside.

RUSTY
I won't let you down.
