LYRIC SHEET*
BELIEVE IN THE MUSIC
by JEFFREY ERIC FUNK

VERSE 1
Calling out from the darkness
Voices of hope echo through the land
Shining bright, there’s a new dawn
Driven by dreams, we will take a stand
We can
Search for promise and truth
Reach for stars in the sky
We’ll find peace in the wonder
Rhythm and rhyme
And with music in my heart
I’m gonna fly!

CHORUS
You’ve got to believe in the music
Feel its power set you free
Believe in the music
I can feel it lifting, pushing
Calling, guiding me…
Yes, I believe in the music

VERSE 2
Just imagine a future
Lifted by love
Let your heart fly free
Dream of better tomorrows
We’ll make the world
Sing in harmony
You’ll see
With a voice that is strong
We’ll have hope we can share
With our song we can chase away
All despair
If you reach out or call me, I will be there

CHORUS
You’ve got to believe in the music
Feel its power set you free
Believe in the music
I can feel it lifting, pushing
Calling, guiding me…
Yes, I believe in the music

BRIDGE
Oh, I’ll lift my hands
I’ll lift them high
Reach for the mountains
Touch the sky
I’ll pull the stars down
One by one
The magic of music
Has begun

CHORUS 2x

“MUSIC OF MY DREAMS” by JEFFREY ERIC FUNK (ASCAP)

Just past midnight, while I sleep
A song drifts through my mind
As the moonlight bathes the sea
I hear a lullaby
Such sweetly blending beauty
Hear the angels sing

And I woke softly, pausing then
To hear the music of my dreams
Gentle harps and whistling flutes
Play on and on in my dreams

While the night wind cools my room
I search my memory
And hear a phantom serenade
Of haunting melody
Just listen, join me as we
Journey to the dawn

And I woke softly, pausing then
To hear the music of my dreams
Gentle harps and whistling flutes
Play on and on in my dreams

I dream of sun-bright ocean skies
And I hear mighty waves
Whispering their evening song
Proud music of the storm

Music, the music of my dreams
Only, I can hear it
Calling me, guiding me home
And I will always hear the song
Play on and on in my dreams
Play on and on in my dreams

OUT OF THE ROLLING OCEAN

Out of the rolling ocean
The crowd came a voice
Whispering “I love you
Before long I must go”

I’ve come a long, long way
Merely to look on you
I could not go till I found you

Behold the ocean and the land
Hear the music of the storm
No one can separate us

Now we have met
We have look’d
We are safe
Return in peace to the ocean
I too am part of the sea
