The Power in Your Hands
(Kristin's Graduation Song)

When you need to know your story
just like everybody does
I hope you will remember
the way I say it was

There was snow all over Georgia
but in March it melts away
and the road that lay before
was a long long wayaway

And now it's all behind you
and here's your graduation day
ain't it just like you to find your way
Now you understand
the power in your hands

Nothing's ever easy
and your way never was
You wouldn't toe the line
do what everybody does
Sure they tried to tame you
but you never let them win
You never would surrender
and you never did give in

And now it's all behind you
and here's your graduation day
ain't it just like you to find your way
now you understand
the power in your hands.

When those winds came to take you
far from every shining shore
I knew they wouldn't break you
and you'd make it back once more

And now it's all behind you
and here's your graduation day
ain't it just like you to find your way
Now you understand
the power in your hands.
