Lyrics

Powers That Be"
(c) 2007 Kendra Legare (words/melody)


In darkest night...depth of the storm
Tragedy strikes...will heroes be born?
Who'll take a stand and pass the test
When things are worse that's when we're at our very best

Each generation faces the storm
But will we survive to be reborn...

Powers that be, can't conquer "we"
Not if we're standing up
Together we're strong enough
And thru the night we carry hope's light
Now it's up to us to keep it burning bright

Beauty cliche's color your skin
Dress to be seen, die to be thin
News reports say, regular day
As they calmly the victims display

Predators once just in the wild
Have become the fear of every mother's child
And tears that are shed a world away
Have suddenly become our dues to pay

Powers that be, can't conquer "we"
Not if we're standing up
Together we're strong enough
And thru the night we carry hope's light
Now it's up to us to keep it burning bright (2x)

And the voice of innocents and prayers of discontent
Can speak without words, demand to be heard
And conscience latent pride... has never died
It's inside of you.....

Powers that be, can't conquer "we"
Not if we're standing up
Together we're strong enough
And thru the night we carry hope's light
Now it's up to us to keep it burning bright (2x)
