will oldham - can't take that away

March 10, 2008

original artist: mariah carey
what makes this an outstanding cover song: i have never ever ever heard of a great mariah carey cover maybe because everybody else's mindset is about belting and singing just like her. but Will Oldham a.k.a bonnie "prince" billy did it with his original folk/country singing style with a punch of rnb-ish accompaniment. i love it! very well done!

check out the video and the lyrics below:



CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY
mariah carey / will oldham

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

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

No no nooo

Oh they,
They can do
Anything they want to you,
If you let them in,
But they won't ever win,
If you cling to you pride, and just push them aside,
See I..
I have learned,
There's an inner peace I own,
Something in my soul that they can not possess
So I won't be afraid and the darkness will fade

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

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

Woah, woah
They can say
Anything they want to say,
Try to bring me down,
But I 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
No no nooo
Me
