Nothing Can Stop Us
Transcribed by Mark Dorset
[Annoucement sample:] "Thankyou, every - come on, give her a proper Liverpool hand, you can do better than that! And now ladies and gentlemen, what you've been waiting for:"
[sung:] I've come a long way. / [spoken:] I've come a long, long way since the day you walked into my life. [sung:] You walked into my life. / [spoken:] You smoothed out all the rough edges with your sweet love and devotion. [sung:] I was tired, / in love like a fool. / [spoken:] I was tired of living the life of a fool, I was wondering where I'd gone wrong. [sung:] But I know / it's gonna work out fine. / [spoken:] But I know it's gonna work out fine, when I see that look in your eyes. [sung:] Yeah! /
I've never felt so good, / I've never felt so strong, / Nothing can stop us now! (no no, no no)
[sung:] I've heard some people say. / [spoken:] Yeah, nothing can stop us now. I've heard people say that a man who needs a woman is weak, [sung:] So wrong, oh so wrong. / [spoken:] but they're so wrong, because nobody can hide from love. [sung:] Do, do you want to know? / [spoken:] Do you want to know, do you want to know something else that's true? [sung:] It's true, it's true, the touch of your hand, oh. / [spoken:] Just the touch of your hand, and I know we can make it.
[sung:] I've never felt so good, / I've never felt so strong, / Nothing can stop us now! / I've never felt so strong, / I've never felt so good, / Nothing can stop us now! [whispered:] (nothing! nothing!...)
ReferencesThe song apparently lifts pretty much everything but Sarah's vocals from I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby's Face by either Baby Washington or Dusty Springfield, depending on who you talk to.
Kylie Minogue covered this song on her Confide In Me single. (It was on one of the two CD formats. The same format also included a cover of a Prefab Sprout ballad called If You Don't Love Me, which Bob & Pete produced.
Here's the band talking about the track, shamelessly pinched from Melody Maker:
