greatest love of all lyrics – whitney houston

i believe the children are our future
teach them well and let them lead the way
show them all the beauty they possess inside
give them a sense of pride to make it easier
let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

everybody’s searching for a hero
people need someone to look up to
i never found anyone who fulfilled my needs
a lonely place to be
and so i learned to depend on me

[chorus:]
i decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows
if i fail, if i succeed
at least i’ll live as i believe
no matter what they take from me
they can’t take away my dignity
because the greatest love of all
is happening to me
i found the greatest love of all
inside of me
the greatest love of all
is easy to achieve
learning to love yourself
it is the greatest love of all

i believe the children are our future
teach them well and let them lead the way
show them all the beauty they possess inside
give them a sense of pride to make it easier
let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

[chorus]

and if, by chance, that special place
that you’ve been dreaming of
leads you to a lonely place
find your strength in love
