All Hearts are dead except those with knowledge... All those with knowledge are asleep except those who perform good actions... All those who perform good actions are deceived except those with sincerity... And all those with sincerity are in a constant state of anxiety... [Imam Shafi'i]

Songs

Salams ppl,

I'm gonna post a few lyrics up. Tell me which song u like.

HERO

There's a hero if you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid of what you are
There's an answer if you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know will melt away

And then a hero comes along
with the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
and you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone
look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
that a hero lies in you

It's a long road when you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold
You can find love if you search within yourself
And the emptiness you felt will disappear

And then a hero comes along
with the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
and you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone
look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
that a hero lies in you

Lord knows dreams are hard to follow
But don't let anyone tear them away
Hold on there will be tomorrow
In time you'll find the way

And then a hero comes along
with the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
and you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
that a hero lies in you.

WHEN YOU BELIEVE

Many nights we prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hope for a song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know theres much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could, whoa, yes

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
Its hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer bird
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I’m standing here
My hearts so full, I cant explain
Seeking faith and speakin words
I never thought I’d say

There can be miracles
When you believe (when you believe)
Though hope is frail
Its hard to kill (mmm)
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve (you can achieve)
When you believe
somehow you will
You will when you believe

They don’t always happen when you ask
And it’s easy to give in to your fears
But when you’re blinded by your pain
Can’t see the way, get through the rain
A small but still, resilient voice
Says hope is very near

There can be miracles (miracles)
When you believe (boy, when you believe, yeah)
[though hope is frail]Though hope is frail
[its hard]Its hard to kill (hard to kill, oh, yeah)
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve (you can achieve, oh)
When you believe somehow you will (somehow, somehow, somehow)
Somehow you will (I know, I know, know)
You will when you believe [when you](ohoh)

I Believe I Can Fly

I used to think that I could not go on
that life was nothing but an awful song
but now I now the meaning of true love
I'm leaning on the everlasting arms

if I can see it then I can do it
if I just believe it there’s nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can saw
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly

see I was on the verge of breaking out
sometimes silence can seem so loud
there are miracles in life I must achieve
but first I know it starts inside of me

if I can see it then I can do it
if I just believe it there’s nothing to it

I believe I can fly I believe
I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can saw
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly

coz I believe in you

if I can see it then I can do it
if I just believe it there’s nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and da
yspread my wings and fly away
I believe I can saw
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly

No offense, ishi, you might want to reconsider your choice of songs...they seem quite old! But, I like "I believe I can fly" most!

Ash, I know what u mean about the songs being old but since i stopped listening to music quite a while ago, I dont know any recent songs. Plus the old songs were good, nowadays they're mostly junky type songs =P.

The reason y i wanned ur opinions was coz we mite have a few at the reunion. And to practice the song, it's have 2 b something the ppl singing would no. And new songs would mean we hafta listen to learn and that would involve music. And I'm trying to avoid that. So old is gold in this case.

And thanx m apu 4 the corrections. I got the lyrics from a website and I thought it sounded weird.

Hmmm...I see your dilemma. I shall suggest a solution for this- just sing Islamic songs- they're great and you won't have to worry about it being right or wrong!

I liked "I believe I can fly" the most. I heard it from zumi, never heard it in real though.

I know we should sing Islamic songs. I'll try to get some for the day. There'll be some non muslim girls there as well. So I was thinking of something kinda inspirational... and about friendship at the same time... any suggestions?

i liked 'I believe I can fly" too. but that day i heard this guy singing this song in our school channel. i tell ya, listening to a good song in a bad voice can ruin your love for that song forever.

make sure you film the whole reunion, no detail spared and allow me to view....

caution, if you havent' fixed a date yet, you might find yourself in limited choice with all the ymsa progs and all...

As far as I see in the agenda, there isnt any TS or TC planned these holidays. Plus the reunion will be on a weekday insha Allah so hopefully it wont clash with YMSA programs.
