Lyrics

Chorus:
Good news… we’re breathing
Good news… we’re alive
Good news… we’re here
And no one can deny

Solo:
You can break my heart
You can break my bones
But no one can break my spirit
‘Cause my spirit is my home
You can take my money
You can take my time
But no one can take my spirit
‘Cause my spirit is mine

Chorus

You can fool my mind
You can fool my eyes
But no one can fool my spirit
‘Cause my spirit is wise
You can bound my body
You can bound my day
But no one can bound my spirit
‘Cause my spirit knows the way

Chorus

The spirit finds a way…
