Can't Take That Way (Mariah's Theme)           
             

They can say anything they want to say 
Try to bring me down 
But I will not allow 
Anyone to succeed 
Hanging clouds over me 
And they can try hard to make me feel 
That I don't matter at all 
But I refuse to falter 
In what I believe 
Or lose faith in my dreams 

CHORUS: 
'Cause there's a light in me 
That shines brightly 
They can try 
But they can't take that away from me 
From me 

They can do anything they want to you 
lf you let them in 
But they won't ever win 
If you cling to your pride 
And just push them aside 
See 
I have learned there's an inner peace I own 
Something in my soul 
That they cannot possess 
So I won't be afraid 
And darkness will fade 

'Cause there's a light in me 
That shines brightly 
They can try 
But they can't take that away from me 

No 
They can't take this 
Precious love 
l'll always have inside me 
Certainly the Lord will guide me 
Where I need to go 

They can say anything they want to say 
Try to break me down 
But 1 won't face the ground 
I will rise steadily 
Sailing out of their reach 

Oh Lord 
They do try hard to make me feel 
That I don't matter at all 
But I refuse to falter 
In what I believe 
Or lose faith in my dreams 

'Cause there's a light in me that shines brightly 
They can try 
But they can't take that away from me 
From me
