Callea, Anthony - When You Believe Lyrics

Many nights we prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hope for a song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
Its hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer bird
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I'm standing here
My hearts so full, I can't explain
Seeking faith and speakin' words
I never thought I'd say

There can be miracles
When you believe (When you believe)
Though hope is frail
Its hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve (You can achieve)
When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe... Ooh...

They don't always happen when you ask
And its easy to give in to your fears
But when you're blinded by your pain
Can't see the way, get through the rain
A small but still, resilient voice
Says hope is very near, oh...

There can be miracles
When you believe (When you believe)
Though hope is frail
Its hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve (You can achieve)
When you believe somehow you will (Somehow you will)
Somehow you will
You will when you believe
You will when you believe
You will when you believe

  10. DeeDee Eagles

    its almost an Australian thing not to clap until the end and less common for Aussies to stand But so blasted good fantastic

  11. Kempee Co

    What a poor performance, you just ruined a beautiful song. Just keep on throwing notes in different directions. A very basic way of singing compared to filipinos. Elementary pupils could do that.
    The arrangement of the song is good but the application of vocal is such a bad thing!

    david leca

    kempee co you sir are a fuckwit

    david leca

    @Kempee Co I think you mean go fuck your self it sounds better, have a nice day

    Kempee Co

  13. David Po

    Melisma at 1:18 kills me!

  14. usherr benz

  15. Cass Minkus

    Just look at his eyebrows XD

  16. MsForwardthinker

    Came back to listen to this one again. Wonderful. That's a powerful, pitch perfect voice for you. Best contemporary singer in Australia (in my view).

    i love the voice of anthony callea....amazing!

  20. Pedro

    Great memories, thanks Anthony...

  21. R. S. Kurtz

    Beautiful renditon of "When You Believe".  Anthony does his country proud with his god-given voice.  He backs the lyrics with great feeling for what he is singing.


    You might also like a recent performance by Anthony Callea  of "Mary did you know" on Ten Late News. It is beautiful

  22. frangipani303

    AND he was singing LIVE!  So good....

  23. bbanana01

    No one has come close to his original performance of the Prayer on Aus Idol...that was magical......amazing!

  24. Rohclem Adenip

    I have been waiting yo hear a voice version of that...fantastic...its a male rendition that can be now sing by men...good job sir

  25. MsForwardthinker

    His 'note to god' is also pretty memorable, not to mention 'the prayer'

  26. ghdienste

    One of the greatest solo performances I have ever seen...

  27. Mary Vigil

    Him and David archuleta sing it so beautifully!

  28. Eva Beals

    Beautiful, although I know the original is better...

  29. MsForwardthinker

    He has a show on at Crown on 13 July. Should be fantastic.

  30. MsForwardthinker

    I was there too and he and Silvie were the absolute stars for me.

  31. NightmareEntity

    great singer

  32. Victor Ueberbacker


  33. MsForwardthinker

    I hope you enjoy your time in Australia. We are a pretty friendly lot. Cheers.

  34. Nhat Minh Vu

    No I'm from Vietnam but will go to Australia next year for higher studies. I just hope to see him there by, being at one of his concerts you know ... So looking forward to that :D)

  35. MsForwardthinker

    Sounds like you are in America? Glad you found him from over there.

  36. Nhat Minh Vu

    Thanks. I really hope to meet him one day!!!

  37. MsForwardthinker

    Thank you. Lovely comment

  38. Nhat Minh Vu

    WOW! This Australian Idol guy sings more effusive, dramatic and mellifluous than American Idol David Archuletta on this song!!! Australia must be proud to have him.

  39. Jose carreon

    The best!

  40. SpottedXMaple

    I'm glad after seeing this, knowing that I'm not the only one who wiggles my eyebrows wildly while singing. ^^


    Espero que um dia venha visitar o Brasil e a Cidade de Flarianópolis...


    Melhor interpretação da música que ouvi até agora. Parabéns.

  43. Derek D

  49. xcxcxcxcx (Bev NZ)

    Absolutely brilliant.

  50. Alan W

    I want him to be my singing teacher

  51. SimonSweMusic

    I had goosebumps all time he sang this song. Really good!! :D

  52. waly93

    @ewankowh I hope you managed to find his both albums, he's pretty amazing.

  53. Vivienne Do

    Pure beauty..I feel so honored being able to hear his voice.
    Something sets free within me whenever I listen to his much passion and feeling. Soul.

  54. Siobhan Murphy

    @Forwardthinker22 You are very welcome! It's amazing that such a big voice comes out of such a small person!

  55. Siobhan Murphy

    I think Rob Guest passed away not long after this. Anthony Callea has the best voice in Australia ( aside from John Farnham,Barnesy etc). It would have been good if he won Idol but like Jojop72 has stated, it is better that he didnt. He should bring out a greatest hits cd (if he hasn't already?)

  56. Joann Pettiford

    yeah l 2nd that
    but lm glad he didnt win
    cause not sure if he would be where he is now
    and look at casey she not doing anything
    but yeah Anth got the best voice
    100% AMAZING

  57. dragonzlyric

    I wish I could sing a duet with him and it's too bad he's taken lol.

  58. Joann Pettiford

    just amazing
    Anth has got the best voice

  59. Ro Rotgans

    woooohhh, this guy sings amazing

  60. danilo alarcon

    nice voice excellent. ypu ought to be the grand winner.......

  61. danilo alarcon

    nice voice excellent.

  62. xcxcxcxcx (Bev NZ)

    My, My, My, Revisiting this again and never get tired of his exceptional voice

  63. femlycan


  64. Renan Peralta

    great voice!!!

  65. Chris Charlton


    It's the biggest mystery in Australian TV history

  66. hasher22

    i want his vibrato

  67. Chris Charlton

    Thats what everyone in Australia has been wondering

  68. TonnyCallea

    @Anthologist22 but i am THE BEST!

  69. raff23

    can only think of 1 idol on a par with callea in the history of idol and that is adam lambert.

  70. Chris React

    i love this boy

  71. Brandy Willis

    He is awesome!!! I am from American and we had a guy on our Idol show sing this song. His name is David Archuleta and he is 16. He was runner up but should have won as well!! You should see his version on here! You will like it too!!!

  72. Brave Leonard


  73. croftboys

    Does anyone know what key Anthony is singing this in? Its not the original and i would like to transpose. haha Thanks guys

  74. nonnapat

    Anthony has an incredable magical gift and I LOVE his version of this beautiful song. Every single beautiful note is perfect. I believe the whole world deserves to hear and watch his gift. The way he holds that long note is amazing. I am really excited about Anthony's new album comming out soon. Thank You Anthony for sharing your amazing talent . Thank You WickedofEden for posting this beautiful video.

  75. fragrantone

    Just love Anthony putting his own stunning interpretation to this beautiful song. "Totally brilliant" about sums it up.

  76. Katrina90077

    He has an amazing gift....

    Love him...

  77. Joann Pettiford

    just amazing

  78. Jacob Alexander

    I'm a diehard Mariah Carey fan, but what I like most about Anthony's version is that he makes it 100% his own. It's like he's singing his own song, not covering one.

    That's what takes the most amount of effort: originality. And he has it.

  79. fragrantone

    Stunning as usual Mr Callea.

  80. Chose21

    Simply the best version. Move over Leon Jackson.

  81. DavoDan

    Excelente interpretación, simplemente magnifica. De que tiene talento el chamaco, lo tiene. Ojalá tenga mayor proyección internacional, se lo merece.

  82. waly93

    This okay singer is actually touring with Whitney Houston on her world tour when she comes to Australia in Feb 10'. He and this version is definately not karoake and I'm sure Whitney has seen some of his performances given he is touring with her. Anthony has never been an Opera singer, he an amazing singer/ performer. Hope you get a chance to listen to some of his other songs on Youtube.

  83. mcworld999

    ok singer, altho his rendition is karoake of the original. sounds better with whitney's runs and falsettos and mariah's whistle notes in the end. he's close to andrea bocelli but he cant do opera.

  84. Hasan Edogawa


  85. queenelizabeth111

    love his version of this song, so as david archuleta and leon jackson. lo0ve them all....

  86. Jemma Fantin

    AMAZING!!!!! as always!! made ,me have goosebumps

  87. nonnapat

    Yes Anthony is such a caring sweetheart and he does so much for charities that many people never hear about. I'm sure he made that beautiful little girls day very special and put a big smile on her face.

  88. nonnapat

    Thank You so much FairGo49 I really appreciated being there to see this magical performance. I was definately privledged to see and hear Anthony's incredable amazing performance. He touched everyone there every single note was flawless and he went so easily into the high notes. His voice was so pure yet full of passion power & intensity. Anthony is a beautiful caring special man with a big heart who does so much for charities and really loves children. He has such a beautiful heart and soul.

  89. nonnapat

    I was lucky enough to be at the Taping of Wicked when Anthony sang this beautiful song. Wow what a fantastic amazing magical voice Anthony has. He just blew me away when he sang it so so beautiful. Anthony is phenomenal talent and he brings so much joy with his music. He really is The King of Vocals. Thank You Anthony for sharing your amazing beautiful voice with us all. Thank You WickedofEden for posting this outstanding video.

  97. harleyguy5

    I do pray for one miracle to happen in my life, that one day I am reunited with the other half of my heart, my soul, my life. Lindy, truly my inspiration thru life, shared himself with me like no one ever could. He is the love of my life, and now in his death I do pray for a miracle, I do believe that no one can ever keep us apart. Love you Lin, see you again.
