OVERCOME

When troubles come around
Don’t worry – our spirit – cannot be – defeated
Like towering walls so high
In this time – we can climb – overcome – the darkness
We’ll find the light inside
We unite – we can fight – say goodbye – to demons

When joy seems far away
Don’t worry – our spirit – cannot be – defeated
The suffering voice subsides
‘Cos this time – we shall climb – overcome – the darkness
Let’s join to find the light

Oh brothers – and sisters – say goodbye – to demons
Oh brothers – and sisters – say goodbye – to demons

The path of courage shines
Don’t worry – our spirit – cannot be – defeated
Let’s forge our life’s designs
In this time – we shall climb – overcome – the darkness
In friendship joy resides

Oh brothers – and sisters – say goodbye – to demons
Oh brothers – and sisters – say welcome – to freedom
Oh brothers – and sisters – say welcome – to freedom
Oh brothers – and sisters – say welcome – to freedom

In the Buddhist organisation I have been active with over the years, members were once offered the chance of writing a song to the sun has a kind of anthem for the European youth division. It was to be something that anyone would find singable regardless of any lack of musical talent, and that reflected all the tenets of a hope giving Buddhist philosophy in a few words and notes. I applied with this song which didn’t get chosen but it expanded my repertoire of compositions. More importantly, I had fun doing it!
