The Voices of Bilthoven

Something inside so strong – Labi Siffre


MS1+2: THE HIGHER YOU BUILD YOUR BARRIERS
(C,A,S1+2: OEHW OEHWOE)
THE TALLER I BECOME (OEHW OEHWOE)
THE FURTHER YOU TAKE MY RIGHTS AWAY (OEHW OEHWOE)
THE FASTER I WILL RUN

YOU CAN’T DENY ME
YOU CAN’T DECIDE TO TURN YOUR FACE AWAY
NO MATTER ‘CAUSE THERE’S

SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG
I KNOW THAT I CAN MAKE IT
THOUGH YOU’RE DOING ME WRONG, SO WRONG
YOU THOUGHT THAT MY PRIDE WAS GONE, OH NO
SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG, OH, SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG

C,MS1+2: THE MORE YOU REFUSE TO HEAR MY VOICE
(A,S1+2: OEHWAYHOEWAYHOEWAYHOEWAY)
THE LOUDER I WILL SING (OEHWHOEHOE)
YOU HIDE BEHIND WALLS OF JERICHO
(OEHWAYHOEWAYHOEWAYHOEWAY)
YOUR LIVES WILL COME TUMBLING

DENY MY PLACE IN TIME
YOU SQUANDER WEALTH THAT’S MINE
MY LIGHT WILL SHINE SO BRIGHTLY IT WILL BLIND YOU
BECAUSE THERE’S

SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG, SO STRONG
I KNOW THAT I CAN MAKE IT
THOUGH YOU’RE DOING ME WRONG, SO WRONG
YOU THOUGHT THAT MY PRIDE WAS GONE, OH NO
SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG, OH, SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG

BROTHERS AND SISTERS
WHEN THEY INSIST WE’RE JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH (C,A,S2:WE’RE JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH) (MS1+2: OEHW NOT GOOD ENOUGH)
(C,A,S1+2: OEHWOEHOEHOEWHAA)
WELL WE KNOW BETTER (WELL WE KNOW BETTER)
JUST LOOK ‘EM IN THE EYES AND SAY
WE’RE GONNA DO IT ANYWAY
WE’RE GONNA DO IT ANYWAY
WE’RE GONNA DO IT ANYWAY
WE’RE GONNA DO IT ANYWAY

(MODULATIE)
SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG
I KNOW THAT I CAN MAKE IT
THOUGH YOU’RE DOING ME WRONG, SO WRONG
YOU THOUGHT THAT MY PRIDE WAS GONE, OH NO
SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG

SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG
I KNOW THAT I CAN MAKE IT
THOUGH YOU’RE DOING ME WRONG, SO WRONG
YOU THOUGHT THAT MY PRIDE WAS GONE, OH NO
SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG, OH,
SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG, OH,
SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG, OH
SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG
