Radio XIII, side A, track 5: “One Moment In Time” by Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston One Moment In TimeOh, Whitney Houston, as I’ve mentioned before, the Olympics don’t do much for me.  But I respect that other people enjoy them (mostly because my wife gets very obsessed with the Olympics, so really, do I have a choice, Whitney Houston?).  Despite my lack of interest in the Olympics overall, though, much credit goes to whoever decided to have you sing the “theme song” for the 1988 Olympics.  Until then, I didn’t know that the Olympics needed a theme song, but after hearing this song I understood.  Oh, Whitney Houston, you were such an amazing singer.  When you sing “When I’m racing with destiny” and just the way you hit “destiny” with that effortlessly beautiful voice of yours. . .it breaks my heart every time I listen to your music now, Whitney Houston, because we really did lose a national treasure.  Also, how is this song not the theme song to EVERY Olympics?  Just another reason I don’t have much love for the Olympics.

“One Moment In Time”

Each day I live

I want to be

A day to give

The best of me

I’m only one

But not alone

My finest day

Is yet unknown

I broke my heart

For every gain

To taste the sweet

I face the pain

I rise and fall

Yet through it all

This much remains

I want one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me

Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny

Then in that one moment of time
I will feel

I will feel
Eternity

Mmmmm

I’ve lived ta be

The very best

I want it all

No time for less

I’ve laid the plans

Now lay the chance

Here in my hands

Give me one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me

Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny

Then in that one moment of time
I will feel

I will feel

Eternityyy, oh!

You’re a winner

For a lifetime

If you seize that one moment in time

Make it shine

Give me one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me

Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny

Then in that one moment of time
I will be

Oh, I will be

Oh, I will be freeeeeeeeeeeeee, oh!

Oh, I will be
I will be
Freeeeeeeeeeeee
