The Voice Within

I'm drowning in Christina Aguilera's melodious voice. The techniques she used in 'The Voice Within' is suffocating me, as well as the chord progression, which I'm trying to decipher.

The Voice Within
Sung by: Christina Aguilera
Composed by: Glen Ballard


Young girl don't cry
I'll be right here
when your world starts to fall, ooh
Young girl it's alright
Your tears will dry
You'll soon be free to fly, ooh

When you're safe inside your room
You tend to dream
Of a place where
Nothing's harder than it seems
No one ever
Wants or bothers to explain
Of the heartache life can bring
And what it means

When there's no one else
Look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend just
Trust the voice within
Then you'll find the strength
That will guide your way
You'll learn to begin to
Trust the voice within, ohh

Young girl don't hide
You'll never change if you just run away, ooh ohh
Young girl just hold tight
Soon you're gonna see your brighter day, ohh

Now in a world where innocence is quickly claimed
It's so hard to stand your ground when you're so afraid
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold
When you're lost outside, look inside to your soul

When there's no one else
Look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend just
Trust the voice within
Then you'll find the strength
That will guide your way
If you'll learn to begin to
Trust the voice within

Ohh yeah, ooh, yeah ohh

Life is a journey
It can take you anywhere you choose to go
As long as you're learning
You'll find all you'll ever need to know
(Be strong)
Break it
(Hold on)
You'll make it
(Be strong)
Just don't forsake it because
(No one can tell you what you can't do)
No one can stop you
You know that I'm talking to you

When there's no one else
Look inside yourself
And like your oldest friend just
Trust the voice within
Then you'll find the strength
That will guide your way
You'll learn to begin to
Trust the voice within, oh yeah

Young girl don't cry
I'll be right here when your world starts to fall, ohh

I kinda wish to be able to sing as well as her. The thrills and turns she does so naturally always captivates me.

What about this song I like the most, you ask? I don't know. The chord progression, the techniques used to sing, the BRIDGE of the song (oh my gawd. It's just... b-e-a-u-tiful!), the dynamics...

I would die to see her sing LIVE. T.T
To me, she sings too well, too magnificently, and too powerfully.
