The Power of Music

Music has the ability to influence us for better or worse. The song touches on that message. It is written to be sung a cappella and some sections are written in a barbershop style.

LyricsVerse 1When I wake in the morningwith a tune in my head,It helps me be stronger; it inspires me.With that burst of courage, I can face any dreadand start off in harmony.
Chorus 1That’s the power of music: Building strength where it wasn’t there.When it touches the soul, it makes life okay to bear.So remember good music, Fill your life with it ev'ry day,and melt all the cares away.
Verse 2When I’m sad or lonely and in need of a friend,I lean on good music to be whole again.My mind is lifted and my heart -- on the mend,When hearing the voices blend.
Chorus 2That’s the power of music: Adding hope where there was despair, Giving us peace or an answer to a prayer.So remember good music, Fill your life with it ev'ry day,and melt all the cares away.
Chorus 3That’s the power of music: It can be with us anywhere;So lift up your voices: let the beauty fill the air;And remember good music, Fill your life with it ev'ry day.The feeling it shares, Nothing compares,So melt all the cares away.
Tagmelt all the cares; melt them a-way.
