make it happen
mariah carey
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 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 finally found my way

If you believe in yourself enough
And know what you want
You're gonna make it happen
Make it happen, you're 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
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, yes

Make it, you're gonna make it
Make it, oh baby

I held on to my faith, I struggled and I prayed
And 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

And if you get down on your knees at night
And pray to the Lord
He's gonna make it happen
Make it happen, yes, He is

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, gonna make it
Gonna make it, 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
