Overcome

  • If you walk with your head down
    You can count every step you take
    I know every place I've been now
    I can count every mistake
    I've been hurt so many times before
    Almost forgotten how to dream
    All that I was running from
    Is all I need to save me

    I couldn't let you in my heart
    My defenses all fall apart
    Just when I thought I'd given up
    I have overcome
    And now I can't let you go, oh no
    You showed me something that I've never known
    And finally I've found the one
    I have overcome

    You can never see it coming
    There's always that one you can't count out
    Who keeps on believing nothings gonna stop me now
    I've been hurt so many times before
    Almost forgotten how to dream
    All that I was running from is all I need to save me

    I couldn't let you in my heart
    My defenses all fall apart
    Just when I thought I'd given up
    I have overcome
    And now I can't let you go, oh no
    You showed me something that I've never known
    And finally I've found the one
    I have overcome

    I'm not running anymore
    Cause now there's nothing left to hold me down
    Some things are worth fighting for
    I see it all
    It's waiting for me now

    I couldn't let you in my heart
    My defenses all fall apart
    Just when I thought I'd given up
    I have overcome
    And now I can't let you go, oh no
    You showed me something that I've never known
    And finally I've found the one
    I have overcome

    I couldn't let you in my heart
    My defenses all fall apart
    Just when I thought I'd given up
    I have overcome
    And now I can't let you go, oh no
    You showed me something that I've never known
    And finally I've found the one
    I have overcome
    I have overcome Writer/s: SAMUEL WATTERS, RICHARD BUTLER, WAYNE WILKINS, LOUIS JOHN BIANCANIELLO
