All these eyes are staring blindly at me
Judge to jury and they're all thick as thieves
They're on my heels
They're on my back
They try to drag me down

But I will overcome
I'm really not that different from anyone
I can take it on
I will overcome
I will overcome

Countless tongues will try and twist fate
From start to finish everybody's got theirs saved
Their words are sharp
They're meant to sting
They're trying to cut me down

But I will overcome
I'm really not that different from anyone
I can take it on
And I will overcome
I will overcome

All those yesterdays don't mean a thing when it comes to now
Cause it's a brand new day I'm making every moment count

Cause I will overcome
I'm really not that different from anyone
I can take it on
And I will overcome
I will overcome
I will overcome
(I can take it)
I can take it on
I can take it on
I will overcome
I will overcome
