  • The higher you build your barriers
    The taller I become
    The further you take my rights away
    The faster I will run
    You can deny me, you can decide
    To turn your face away
    No matter 'cause there's

    Something inside so strong
    I know that I can make it
    Though you're doing me wrong, so wrong
    You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
    There's something inside so strong
    Oh, something inside so strong

    The more you refuse to hear my voice (ooh-weh ooh-weh ooh-weh ooh-weh)
    The louder I will sing
    You hide behind walls of Jericho (ooh-weh ooh-weh ooh-weh ooh-weh)
    Your lies will come tumbling
    Deny my place in time, you squander wealth that's mine
    My light will shine so brightly it will blind you
    Because there's

    Something inside so strong, strong
    I know that I can make it
    Though you're doing me wrong, so wrong
    You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
    There's something inside so strong
    Oh, something inside so strong

    Brothers and sisters
    When they insist we're just not good enough
    Well we know better
    Just look him in his eyes and say
    We're gonna do it anyway
    We're gonna do it anyway

    There's something inside so strong
    And I know that I can make it
    Though you're doing me wrong, so wrong
    You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
    There's something inside so strong, oh
    Something inside so strong

    Brothers and sisters
    When they insist we're just not good enough
    Well we know better
    Just look him in his eyes and say
    We're gonna do it anyway
    We're gonna do it anyway
    We're gonna do it anyway
    We're gonna do it anyway
    Because there's

    Something inside so strong, (something inside so strong)
    I know that I can make it
    Though you're doing me wrong, so wrong
    You thought that my pride was gone, oh no, oh no
    There's something inside so strong
    Something inside so strong (oh oh yeah)
    I know that I can make it
    Though you're doing me wrong, so wrong
    You thought that my pride was gone, oh no, oh no
    There's something inside so strong

    Oh oh, something inside so strong
    Oh oh, something inside so strong
    Oh oh, something inside so strong Writer/s: LABI SIFFRE
