Something inside so strong (Labi Siffre)


The higher you build your barriers
The taller I become
The farther you take my rights away
The faster I will run
You can deny me
You can decide to turn your face away
No matter cos there’s….
Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
Tho’ you’re doing me wrong, so wrong
But then my pride was gone
Oh no, something inside so strong
Oh oh oh something inside so strong
The more you refuse to hear my voice
The louder I will sing
You hide behind walls of Jericho
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
Cos there’s……
Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
Tho’ you’re doing me wrong, so wrong
But then my pride was gone
Oh no, no, no something inside so strong
Oh oh oh something inside so strong
Brothers and sisters
When they insist we’re just not good enough
Brothers and sisters
When we know better
Just look ‘em in the eyes and say
We’re gonna do it anyway (x 3)
Something inside so strong
And I know that I can make it
Tho’ you’re doing me wrong, so wrong
But then my pride was gone
Oh no, something inside so strong
So strong oh oh something inside so strong
Something inside so strong
Something inside so strong
