Lyrics

Power

Written By: Carmen Jimenez & Kris Ashby

Power

When the odds are against you
And your head’s against the wall
Got to come up with the power
To fight tomorrow’s war

Get out of the comfort zone
Reach for the sky
Make the impossible possible
Make it happen one more time

You’re not alone anymore
Find the strength inside to fight

Power
You’ve got the power
Making it happen
And there is no stopping us now

When hope seems so distant
When you feel you’re all alone
Just remember the power within you
And it will help you move along
