Make It Happen Lyrics - Mariah Carey

Review The Song (13)



OOOOOHOOOOOhoooooo
Ooooooooohoooooooooohooo

Not more than three short years ago
I was abandoned and alone
Without a penny to my name
So very young and so afraid
No proper shoes upon my feet
Sometimes I couldn't even eat
I often cried myself to sleep
But still I had to keep on going
Never knowing if I could take it
If I would make it through the night
I held on to my faith
I struggled and I prayed
And now I've found my way

[Chorus:]
sponsored links
If you believe in yourself enough
And know what you want
You're gonna make it happen
Make it happen
And if you get down on your knees at night
And pray to the Lord

He's gonna make it happen
Make it happen

You’re gonna make it happen oh yeah

I know life can be so tough
And you feel like giving up
But you must be strong
Baby just hold on

You'll never find the answers
If you throw your life away
I used to feel the way you do
Still I had to keep on going
Never knowing if I could take it
If I would make it through the night
I held on to my faith
I struggled and I prayed
And now I've finally found my way

I know you’re gonna make it happen
And pray to the Lord

He’s gonna make it happen

If you believe, yes you are

make it happen

You just gotta hold on

Make it happen- - - - - - - yeah,

Make it

You’re gonna make it

Make it
Oh make it.

AAaaaaaaaa

Make it through the night

I struggled and I prayed
And now I've finally found my way

He’s gonna make it happen

Yes he is
If you believe
You can make it


Oh ooooooh

I once was lost
But now I'm found
I got my feet
On solid ground
Thank you Lord
If you believe
Within your soul
Just hold on tight
And don't let go
You can make it
Make it happen . . . . . .

You can make it

Make it happen

Gonna make it

Gonna make it

Gonna make it.

Gonna make it

And if you get on your knees and pry to the lord

If you believe in yourself enough
And know what you want
You're gonna make it happen
Make it happen

And if you get down on your knees at night
And pray to the Lord
He's gonna make it happen
Make it happen

Very inspiring thoughts she has in this song... It soothes my soul, lightens my spirit, and opens my eyes to the possibility of realizing the dreams I have as long as I work hard for it and never stop asking His holy guidance^^...

make it happen @ msg | Reviewer: dim | 5/7/09

i can still remember when mariah perfomed with this song @ msg... her vocal was so great.. and f im not mistaken that was the time that she overused her vocal.. and after her 1996 world tour concert in japan her vocal was started to deteriorate.. 1997 was the start of the "fall" now.. i can say that mariah's vocal was fully deteriorated.. and i bilieve that she can still hit a high whistle note but not in a belt...hope she can still recover her voice

Thank you Mariah | Reviewer: Amy | 3/20/09

I remember when this song came out. It was 3 yrs. after a very rough time in my life when I was staying with different friends every night becuase I had no home of my own - and at 18 yrs. old. I even went hungry a few times because of lack of money. 3 yrs. later, I was living on the other side of the country driving my own car, living with my boyfriend (who later became my husband and we've been happily married for 13 yrs. now!!) and heard this song. I had tears in my eyes and was amazed at how far I came in those 3 yrs. - just like the begining for this song. I was thankful to have everything that I had (I still am) and this song really hit home. Thank you Mariah - for a song so encouraging. It is such an inspiration and has meant the world to me. I have even shown my children your song and your voice is such a gift. Thank you!!!

knowing what you want | Reviewer: Scot | 1/1/09


This is one of my all time favorites from her many hits. She lays it out: know what you want, keep pushing and praying for it. What more can anyone do. Just keep the faith and work for what you want.
It's just figuring out what you truly want that makes it hard to get started.
She's got so many songs that help keep the faith.

I`m making it happen!!! | Reviewer: Natascha | 11/27/08

Mariah is really inspiring me and she did for as long as I can remember.
I always wanted to be a singer but was to inconfident to really blurt it out.
I used to (and still do) practice on her music and recently started to take singing lessons.
Thanks to Mariah (and some others) I learned to do things with my voice that make my teacher wonder why I take lessons.
Mariah Thank yu SO MUCH!!!!
I worship your voice.
Pls DON`T EVER STOP!!!!!!!!

I got my brokeback mountain... | Reviewer: nadja | 9/8/08

Believe & You Will Receive | Reviewer: SIA | 9/23/07

Thank You Mariah! You have helped me/us more than you know.

Like you said "If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer" (American Music Awards 2005).

Believe in Yourself, Believe in the Universe, Believe in The Love and Goodness of Our Creator.


Nothing can stop you. May we all make our dreams come true!
