Nothing feels right and nothing feels wrong
But living in this skin has made me a little bit too numb
So I'll hold the hot coals in the palms of my hands
Just to burn away the layers if I can and I know

I will overcome
I will overcome

Say that I will and then I say that I won't
Revisit this place inside that's killing off my last hope
And it happened to me and then it happened to her
An angry fist from an uneducated temper

I will overcome
I will overcome

By love
By marching on (By marching on)
One foot in front of the other
One foot in front of the other

And then by faith
Message in hand
They told me I wouldn't make it
They told me I couldn't make it

Still I will overcome (One foot in front of the other)
I will overcome
