  • Hmm
    Whoah

    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
    How to make me feel that I
    Don't matter at all
    But I refuse to falter in what I believe or loose faith in my dreams

    'Cause there's
    There's a light in me
    That shines brightly
    They can try
    But they can't take that away from me
    From me

    Oh oh
    No, no, no, no, no, no
    Ay

    Oh they
    They can do
    Anything they want to you
    If you let them in
    But they won't ever win
    If you cling to you pride, and just push them aside,
    See I,
    I have learned
    There's an inner peace I own
    Something in my soul that they can not possess
    Oh I won't be afraid and the darkness will fade

    'Cause there's
    There's light in me me
    That shines brightly, yes
    They can try
    But they can't take that away from me

    No, oh
    They can't take this
    Precious love I'll always have inside me,
    Certainly the Lord will guide me where I need to go

    Woah, woah
    They can say
    Anything they want to say
    Try to bring me down
    But I won't face the ground
    I will rise steadily sailing out of their reach
    Although they do try
    How to make me feel that I,
    Don't matter at all,
    But I refuse to fall,
    Tell me what I believe or loose faith in my dreams
    'Cause there's a light in me
    That shines brightly yes

    They can try but they can't take that away from
    Me
    From me
    No, no, no, no, no, no Writer/s: DAVID MORALES, DIANE WARREN, MARIAH CAREY
