Letra:

Years ago, my heart was set to live, oh, but Ive been trying hard against unbelievable odds, it gets so hard at times like now to hold on, my guns theyre waiting to be stuck by, at my side is god. And there aint no one gonna turn me round, aint no one gonna turn me round.

Theres people around who tell you that they know, the places where they send you, and its easy to go, they’ll zip you up and dress you down, stand you in a row, but you know you dont have to, you can just say no. And there aint no one gonna turn me round, aint no one gonna turn me round, aint no one gonna turn me round, aint no one gonna turn me round.

I’ve been built up and trusted, broke down and busted, but they’ll get theirs and well get ours, just if we can, just, ah, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on. Years ago my heart was set to live, oh, but I’ve been trying hard against strong odds, it gets so hard at times like now to hold on, well, I’ll fall if I don’t fight, and at my side is god.

Aint no one gonna turn me round, aint no one gonna turn me round, aint no one gonna turn me round, aint no one gonna turn me round. Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on.

(Alternate lines of last verse) Years ago I was all set to go, and I’ve been trying hard against long odds, it gets so hard at times like this to even hang around, I can either stand or fall, and I believe Im gonna stand tall.
