LYRICs – I WON’T BE SILENT
Don’t drop a beat, stay on your feet
Glory’s coming and it tastes so sweet
Just like honeysuckle on the vine
This is our world and it’s our time
Ain’t no stopping what’s got to be
Until everybody here is free

I won’t be silent
‘Til we’ve won
‘Til love rules underneath the sun
And until my day’s are done
I won’t be silent until we’ve won
‘Til we’ve won, ‘til we’ve won
And until my day’s are done
I won’t be silent until we’ve won!

There’s just one sky, one heaven above
There’s just one word and the word is love
Just one people and the people’s us
Just one world and we know we must
Make this dream in our hearts come true
It’s the only thing we got to do

I won’t be silent
‘Til we’ve won
‘Til love rules underneath the sun
And until my day’s are done
I won’t be silent until we’ve won
‘Til we’ve won, ‘til we’ve won
And until my day’s are done
I won’t be silent until we’ve won

The way is rough and sometimes steep
But I swore to the people my soul to keep
As long as there’s a road ahead of me
You can rest assured I’ll be on my feet
‘Cause in my heart I was born to be
Strong like the mountain and the old oak tree
I see the future ahead of me
And I ain’t stopping until we’re free

When I’m feeling down and low
I look to the stars and I surely know
We’re in heaven and it’s all around
And I can feel my heartbeat pound
And I know I’m glory bound
And there ain’t nothing gonna turn me around

I won’t be silent
‘Til we’ve won
‘Til love rules underneath the sun
And until my day’s are done
I won’t be silent until we’ve won
‘Til we’ve won, ‘til we’ve won
And until my day’s are done
I won’t be silent until we’ve won
‘Til we’ve won, ‘til we’ve won
And until my day’s are done
I won’t be silent until we’ve won!
