There’s Been So Many Thing That Held Us Back
But Now It Looks Like We’re On The Right Track
I Know We’ve Got A Long Long Way To Go
And Where We’ll End Up Lions Know
But We Wont Let Nothing Hold Us Back

We All Know Someone That Has A Negetaive Vibe
And If We Try To Make It They Only Push Us Aside
They Really Don’t Have Nowhere To Go
Ask Them Where They’re Going, They Don’t Know
But We Wont Let Nothing Hold Us Back
We’re Putting Ourselves Together
We’re Polishing Up Our Act
And If We Ever Been Held Back Before
I Know We Will Refuse To Be Held Back Anymore
We Wont Let Nothing Nothing Stand In Our Way
We Want You All To Listen, Listen To Every
WORD WE SAY
