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 my blog I chat 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.
