lyrics

Can you hear a heartbeat, mmm,
Calling out to you and me?
Can you hear a heartbeat, oh
Calling out that we are free?

And if you feel afraid,
Love will make you strong
What you feel inside?
Love is never wrong.

Can you feel us near you
Reaching out to take your hand?
Can you feel us near you?
Love is gonna make a stand.

And if you feel alone
Everywhere’s a friend.
Don’t you know, don’t you know, you’re not alone,
Let your poor heart mend.

You’re beautiful, the way you are
Can’t drag you down
Baby, you’re a star.

Because love wins in the end, in the end, in the end
Love wins in the end, in the end, in the end
Take a look around you
How it will astound you
The love that surrounds you
Hate don’t stand a chance
Put your hands up, put your hands up, Love, and dance.

Can you feel a heartbeat, oh?
It’s getting stronger day by day.
Can you feel a heartbeat?
C’mon and turn it up, DJ.

Beat to beat and heart to heart that’s how we take our vow.
Don’t give up, don’t give up, no, no, no
We’re just getting started now.

‘Cause we’ve come through the flame, been touched by the fire,
Try to take us down, and we’ll reach higher and higher and higher and higher

Because love wins in the end, in the end, in the end,
Love wins in the end, in the end, in the end
Take a look around you
Oh, it will astound you
The love that surrounds you
Hate don’t stand a chance
So put your hands up, put your hands up, Love, and dance.

Won’t go back, Come too far
To hide our love away.
Fight for the right to be who we are
Can’t take our love, can’t take our love, can’t take our love
No way.

Because love wins in the end, in the end, in the end
Love wins in the end, in the end, in the end
Take a look around you
How it will astound you
The love that surrounds you
Hate don’t stand a chance
Put your hands up, put your hands up, Love, and dance.

I got peace like a river like a river in my soul now
Love like an ocean, like an ocean in my soul
Peace like a river, like a river in my soul now
Love like an ocean, like an ocean in my soul
I got peace like a river like a river in my soul now
Love like an ocean, like an ocean in my soul
Peace like a river, like a river in my soul now
Love like an ocean, like an ocean in my soul.
