Faith of the Heart Lyrics - Rod Stewart

Review The Song (22)

it's been a long road,
getting from there to here.
it's been a long time,
but my time is finally near.

and I can feel the change in the wind right now,
nothings in my way
and they're not gonna hold me down no more,
no they're not gonna hold me down

cause i've got faith of the heart
i'm going where my heart will take me
i've got faith to believe,
i can do anything
i've got strength of the soul
no one's gonna bend nor break me
i can reach any star
i've got faith
i've got faith
faith of the heart

it's been a long night,
trying to find my way
been through the darkness
now i finally have my day
and i will see my dream come alive at last
i will touch the sky
and they're not gonna hold me down no more,
no they're not gonna change my mind


i've known a wind so cold,
i've seen the darkest days,
but now the winds i feel,
are only winds of change
i've been through the fire,
and i've been through the rain
but, i'll be fine.


i've got faith of the heart,
i'm going where my heart will take me,
i've got strenth of soul,
no one's gonna bend nor break me.
i can reach any star,
i've got faith
i've got faith
faith of the heart

it's been a long road

Faith of the heart | Reviewer: Barbara | 6/30/14

First time I heard it was as theme tune for Enterprise, and I've loved it ever since. Russell Watson's version isn't bad, but he can't beat Rod Stewart's, fab-u-lous!!!!!

preference | Reviewer: theoctopuskid | 9/26/13

I have recorded and watched all the episodes of Star Trek Enterprise inspired by the opening song and montage. I think both fit perfectly. Sure we all love Rod Stewarts voice but Russell Watson's phrasing is infinitely superior and produces a stunning version even if it a 'cover'. (I carry on pass the intro just to see Jolene Blamore!!!)

Prefer Watson Russell version | Reviewer: ssamayoa | 4/23/13

Prefer Watson Russell version even if both version are good.

This is, since I heard first time at the end of Patch Adams movie, my favorite son.

And for those who don't know, was Diane Warren who wrote this inspiring son.

had me saying AMEN | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/5/13

Goes Straight to the Heart!! UnForgetable :-) | Reviewer: Christina | 3/29/09

Who but Rod Stewart could creat such a wonderful, meaningful song....that goes straight to the Heart??? Has so much, says so much.....Who but the creators of Star Trek to put the two together???? Both will "Live Long and Help Us All to Prosper"!!!!

retirement | Reviewer: anonymous | 2/28/09

I have had the same job for almost 40 years now. Although it has been very difficult at times, I have always kept plugging away. I always felt that no matter what, I would do my job the way I thought it needed to be done. I would do right because it was right. I never thought of my pay as a big issue. Now, everyone keeps asking me when I am going to retire. I am sick of the question, it makes me angry when they ask. Can't they just say "good morning, how are you doing?" I hear this song and it makes me want to keep on going.........I think of it as my secret theme song. I know that may seem sort of weird because I have read the other reviews and they have faced things more terrible than I can imagine. It is just a very inspiring piece of music, no matter who sings it.

My father | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/20/09

Im from Argentina, this beautiful song describes me everithing about my father and how is he now, trhougth a life of batles, i am bless, i have my father with me, and every time i hear this song, wich is his favorite one, i will remember him

You can do it if you really want ... | Reviewer: Never Give Up! | 2/7/09

I am a cancer survivor (diagnosed at 22) but at the expense of not being able to have children. My mum, dad & best friend passed away within 6 years of each other; all b4 I turned 30. In Nov 2007, after 7 years together, I married the most wonderful man on this earth - despite his being an avid Star Trek fan! After hearing this song & listening to the words, I just knew I was going to walk down the aisle on our Wedding Day (1st marriage for both of us) to this piece of music. Talk about emotional - I cried all the way down the aisle and right through the ceremony - and still do every time I hear it - but even if I could do it all again, I wouldn't choose any other piece of music ... it was absolutely perfect and appropriate for all I have been through. Only months after our wedding, I was diagnosed with malignant tumors - but with an operation & some follow up treatment I celebrated my 50th birthday at the end of 2008. Despite all the negatives in my life, I am so grateful for who I am & what I have and don't know that it would be possible for me to be happier than I am right now ... it's certainly been a long road though.
Live, love and laugh like there is no tomorrow, for life is so unpredictable - I should know!

wow. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/5/08

this song rings so true today. i've been going through a lot of changes lately and had trouble coping with it. i heard this song the day i decided to get my life back on track. makes me feel like crying.

Amazing song, one of my all time favorites | Reviewer: Matdredalia | 6/30/08

First of all, I want to say that this is one of my all time favorite songs, probably in my top 50, which is saying a lot considering I have hundreds of favorite songs.

It brings tears to my eyes and a smile to my heart every time I hear it.

And secondly, @ those who keep complaining that Rod didn't do this song because they heard someone else do it on Enterprise: Guess what, Rod did it first. The other guy RE-DID it for Enterprise. It's this wonderful thing called a "cover" that they did. Please do some research.

Amazing... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/24/08

I heard this song playing on the credits of Patch Adams, an inspirational movie and this song fits perfectly in place.I loved hearing this song, the tune and lyrics are beautiful, thanks for writing a song that has touched not only my heart but many more and many more to come.

Love it.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/5/08

not by rod stewart.. guy that kinda sounds like him. but definitely not him. haha. but oh well. its still an amazing song. i heard it the first time on enterprise. and i just had to find it. i love it.

whoa man .......... | Reviewer: sam X 17 | 2/10/08

why did my last reveiw not get posted it kinda p.o's me because i took the time to write some thing and i've been getting on every single day to look but in other news this is a very inspirational song

The best ever.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/30/08

This song has been a inspiration whenever the going gets tough for me. It reflects the spirit of the human race to persevere against the odds. Truely inspiring.

Probably one of the most inspirational songs. | Reviewer: John | 9/4/07

When I first heard this in Star Trek: Enterprise, I begun to try and lip sync this song, and then, everything hit me, that I've been through so much and still trudging on to my dream, but no matter what, as long as I have the faith and the heart to do it, I'll strive anything!

As for the intro for the Star Trek: Enterprise, this song fits inspite of what many claimed to be the worse intro, the song shows that we, the human race, have gone through so much, and yet, we kept it going, in the first episode shows that the Vulcans thought of us, as illogical race, and that we, shouldn't be doing things so illogical and reckless exploration, but we did it and strived to be later, be called the United Federation of Planets.

This is a song that must be listened to.
