LYRICS FOR RESILIENT

We’re writing our own story

Though we don’t know the end

So let’s keep going

Nothing can’t stop us

We’ll get through

Together we’ll get through

Resilient in every way

Though hard times may test our lives

Love will lead the way

Together we’ll survive

Together we will thrive

 This won’t last forever

That’s one thing for sure

And when it’s all over

We’ll be stronger than before

We’ll get through

Together we’ll get through

Resilient in every way

Though hard times may test our lives

Love will lead the way

Together we’ll survive

Together we will thrive

Love for each other

Will take us a long way

As we keep looking

To a brighter day

 

Bridge-

When it’s over

Over

We’ll be better

Better

Even stronger

Stronger

Much closer

Closer

Together we, we can do it

We are here,

We are here with you!

Resilient in every way

Though hard times may test our lives

Love will lead the way

Together we’ll survive

Together we will thrive

Dancehall break down

It could test we

But it cah break we

No amount of pressure

Could stop we energy

We do it before

And we go do it again

The sun muss shine

After the rain

Our story’s far from finished

There’s so much more to write

We look forward to the good times

We’re gonna be alright

We’ll get through

Together we’ll get through

 

Chorus: (ALL ARTISTE)

Resilient in every way

Though hard times may test our lives

Love will lead the way

Together we’ll survive

Together we will thrive
