Overcome Lyrics - Within Temptation

Review The Song (13)



Where are the heroes
In my time of need
Is my cry not loud enough
Or have they gone all numb

They just stand and stare
Out of the rain
Thinking but not acting
That they're not to blame

Falling and crawling
A fight to stand up
Memory still haunts me
In the dead of night

Over and over
I felt so small
But one day I'll be stronger
And you better watch out

I will overcome
Your violence their silence
Although,
It can't be undone
I will overcome
Knowing that I'm not the only one
I will overcome
It's the only way to carry on

Where are the saviours
Afraid of the toll
Sorry do my nine inch nails
Slash your soul

Such heroes
Throwing stones
Straight at the one
Who is standing alone

Twisting and turning
It's always the same
Truth is never honest
When you're to blame

Pushing and pulling
Never give in
One day I wish
You'll see you're not so beautiful within

I will overcome
Your violence your silence
Although,
It can't be undone
I will overcome
Knowing that I'm not the only one
I will overcome
It's the only way to carry on

Run and run
Run and run

I will overcome
Their violence your silence
Although,
It can't be undone
I will overcome
Knowing that I'm not the only one
I will overcome
It's the only way to carry on

I will overcome

Getting Chills | Reviewer: Beacon | 2/11/12

Listening to this right now and getting chills all over my body.. The "Run and Run" vocal part is breathtakingly epic like in some other songs like Aquarius, What have you done, Heart of Everything. Best lyrics.. best singer.. best band.. ever..

This song is my heart. Just when I thought I can't live life anymore I found this song hidden in the plethora of WT songs on my ipod. Within Temptation is the greatest band, when I heard this song I was thought "They trump all over Evanesence." So much love to Amy Lee but you have competition.

makes me feel strong | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/29/09

This song has a beautiful melody...and the lyrics are so...strengthening! These last months I have been experiencing such terrible situations...you know...the feeling of being completely imprisoned inside the walls of sadness...sleepless nights... misunderstood by everyone...completely alone and helpless...watching my dreams ruin one by one...and seeing just a black hole in my future...I was completely hopeless! I've always been waiting for heros to come and save me from those who cause me hell...but they never came...It seems like noone cares about me and the way I suffer...
And so one of these days I heard this song...it filled me with hope, it strengthened me within! Now I know that I shouldn't be waiting for anyone in the world! I must keep going my own way with pride and faith...I must keep climbing to reach the top and realize my dreams! I'll overcome!

great | Reviewer: just another anonymous person | 6/17/09

i love this song, WT sounds great. this is like my story, i was seriously breaking down until i heard this song in my walkman.
my parents always beat me randomly, like cause i didn't get first in class, or cause i'm fat and ugly, or forgot to off the light. so my dad was insulting me about how nobody would want to marry me, and im crying cause they're my parents, they're supposed to love me, not hate me. just cause i was born fat or stupid, not my fault, their genes fault. i didn't ask to be born. i wanted to kill him, i really did, but im not that dumb.
i just want to become a lawyer when i grow up, so i can sue them for slander. and demand compensation. then i will set up an institution for kids from broken families. then i can do things i like, like writing a book, make a movie, fantasies really. but i'm forbidden to even read cause my parents just want me to do maths all day long, they want me to be a doctor so i can earn money, but im not smart enough.
so i wanted to die, but when i heard this song, i thought "i'm not the only one". so i know somebody out there will be born, and maybe i can help him live a better life. so im gonna carry on living.
thanks WT!

Overcome | Reviewer: Sarah | 1/18/09

This song is beautiful. The lyrics are so strong even though it seems she is going to break. It's not my genre of music, but the lyrics pulled me in from the start and now it's one of my favorite songs.

.... | Reviewer: Raven | 6/15/08

Lovely. Makes me want to grow nine-inch nails. The only flaw in the song is that I wish the instrumentals and tempo had been a little more-how to put this, how to PUT this?-.... rock-ish, I suppose the word is. That said, it really is great.
Oh, by the way for fellow WT fans: albums "Mother Earth" and "The Silent Force" are being officially released in the US!!! Can't wait. Hopefully then those stupid iTunes executives will put the albums on.

Stunning | Reviewer: Loly | 4/16/08

It's an absolutely amazing song. Not only are the words powerful, so is the instrumental part. It starts soft but really picks up the volume and I guess the "full" sound of it (it's hard to explain). It really makes for a great effect at the last chorus as if solidifying her resolve to overcome whatever is oppressing her.

I love it~! ♥

I absolutely LOVe this song and band. I think this song os one of mt favorites, and not just for this band.

overcome | Reviewer: mojo | 11/2/07

I like this song much. the melody is trebble, but fragile, and the lyrics makes to think in the security we trust our protectors. it must be save ourselves from our opressors?

WOW | Reviewer: Quoth | 7/18/07

love it | Reviewer: anne | 3/10/07
