New day dawning, I wonder what it holds for me
Sun is shining, don't think that it shine for me
I look around, nothing seems to have changed
This dirty town, it hasn't somehow rearranged
And I stand up, but I get knocked straight back down
"Just give it up", they say, "We just don't want you around
Not one of us and we don't like to share"
Mouthful of dust, but I'll get even I swear
I hear your voice, call my name
In my heart, there's a pouring rain
And it ain't pretty, no it ain't pretty, no it ain't pretty
But you say, "Hold on, hold on, believe me
All the plans against you one by one, will come undone"
I shall overcome
Through my tears, I try to see your face
But doubt and fear come calling
And crowd my head with words of hate
I scream out, "Please, don't leave me hear alone"
Down on my knees, without you, without hope
I hear your voice, call my name
In my heart, there's a pouring rain
And it ain't pretty, no it ain't pretty, no it ain't pretty
But you say, "Hold on, hold on, believe me
Love is here and I won't let you down, stand your ground"
Hold on, hold on, it's easy
All the plans against you one by one, will come undone
I know, I shall overcome
Just in time you call my name
Pull myself up to fight again, I'll never let you down
Hold on, hold on, believe me
Love is here and I won't let you down, stand your ground
Hold on, hold on, it's easy
All the plans against you one by one, will come undone
I know, I shall overcome
