A Song About Dreaming Big

 

“What a Feeling” – Irene Cara

Irene Cara is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actress. She is known for co-writing several hit film tracks and for her roles in the movies Fame and Sparkle. In 1984 she won an Academy Award and Grammy for her song “Flashdance…What a Feeling” from the film Flashdance. The hit song is about following your dreams. The song is quite inspirational and encourages the listener to not let fear and pride prevent you from doing what you want and following your passions in life. The song has an important message for everyone that may be too scared to take a risk for fear of failure or criticism from others.

“…Take your passion and make it happen”

Lyrics

First when there’s nothing
But a slow glowing dream
That your fear seems to hide
Deep inside your mind
All alone I have cried
Silent tears full of pride
In a world made of steel
Made of stone
Well, I hear the music
Close my eyes, feel the rhythm
Wrap-around
Take a hold of my heart
What a feeling
Bein’s believin’
I can have it all
Now I’m dancing for my life
Take your passion
And make it happen
Pictures come alive
You can dance right through your life
Now I hear the music
Close my eyes, I am rhythm
In a flash
It takes hold of my heart
What a feeling
Bein’s believin’
I can have it all
Now I’m dancing for my life
Take your passion
And make it happen
Pictures come alive
You can dance right through your life
What a feeling
What a feeling
(I am music now)
Bein’s believin’
(I am rhythm now)
Pictures come alive
You can dance right through your life
What a feeling
(I can really have it all)
What a feeling
(Pictures come alive when I call)
I can have it all
(I can really have it all)
Have it all
(Pictures come alive when I call)
(Call, call, call, call)
I can have it all
(Bein’s believin’)
Bein’s believin’
(Take your passion)
Make it happen
(What a feeling)
What a feeling
(Bein’s believin’)
Happen
(Take your passion)
