They can say anything they want to say
Try to bring me down
But I will not allow
Anyone to succeed
Hanging clouds over me
And they can try hard to make me feel
That I don't matter at all
But I refuse to falter in what I believe or lose faith in my dreams

[Chorus]
Cause there's a light in me that shines brightly
They can try but they can't take that away from me

They can do anything they want to you
If you let them in
But they won't ever win if you cling to your pride
And just push them aside
See I have learned
There's an inner peace I own
Something in my soul
That they cannot possess
So I won't be afraid
And the darkness will fade

[Chorus]

No they can't take this precious love
I will always have inside me
Certainly the Lord will guide me where I need to go

They can say anything they to say try to bring me down
But I won't face tte clouds I will rise steadily sailing out of their reach

Oh Lord
They do try
Hard to make me feel that I don't matter at all but I refuse to falter
In what I believe or lose faith in my dreams
