Not more than three short years ago
I was abandoned and alone  Without a penny to my name
So very young and so afraid 
No proper shoes upon my feet
 Sometimes I couldn't even eat
I often cried myself to sleep 
But still I had to keep on going  Never knowing if I could take it
If I would make it through the night 
I held on to my faith 
I struggled and I prayed 
And now I've found my way

If you believe in yourself enough
And know what you want
You're gonna make it happen 
(Make it happen)
And if you get down on your knees at night 
And pray to the Lord
He's gonna make it happen 
(Make it happen)

You're gonna make it happen, oh yeah

I know life can be so tough 
And you feel like giving up
But you must be strong 
Baby just hold on
You'll never find the answers if you throw your life away
I used to feel the way you do
 Still I have to keep going  Never knowing if I could take it
If I would make it through the night 
I held on to my faith 
I struggled and I prayed 
And now I've finally found my way

If you believe in yourself enough
And know what you want
You're gonna make it happen 
Make it happen (I know, you gonna make it happen)
And if you get down on your knees at night 
And pray to the Lord
He's gonna make it happen 
(He's gonna make it happen)

If you believe in yourself enough
And know what you want
You're gonna make it happen 
Make it happen (make it happen)
And if you get down on your knees at night 
And pray to the Lord
He's gonna make it happen 
Make it happen 

Make it happen, oh yeah
Make it, you're gonna make it, make it

I held on to my faith 
I struggled and I prayed 
And finally found a way

If you believe in yourself enough
And know what you want
You're gonna make it happen 
Make it happen 
And if you get down on your knees at night 
And pray to the Lord
He's gonna make it happen 
Make it happen 

If you believe in yourself enough
And know what you want
You're gonna make it happen 
Make it happen 
And if you get down on your knees at night 
And pray to the Lord
He's gonna make it happen 
Make it happen 

I once was lost
But now I'm found 
I got my feet on solid ground
 Thank you Lord
If you believe within your soul
Just hold on tight 
And don't let go
You can make it, make it happen 
Yeah, you can make it, make it happen 
You're gonna make it, you gonna make it, you gonna make it

If you believe in yourself enough
And know what you want
You're gonna make it happen 
Make it happen 
And if you get down on your knees at night 
And pray to the Lord
He's gonna make it happen 
Make it happen 

If you believe in yourself enough
And know what you want
You're gonna make it happen 
Make it happen 
And if you get down on your knees at night 
And pray to the Lord
He's gonna make it happen 
Make it happen
