Rise Up

written & sung by Andra Day

You’re broken down and tired of livin’ life on a merry-go-round

and you can’t find a fighter, but I see it in you.

So, we can walk it out.

Mountains. We can walk it out. Mountains.

 

And I’ll rise up; I’ll rise like the day.

I’ll rise up. I’ll rise not afraid. I’ll rise up and do it a thousand times again.

I’ll rise up, out like the waves.

I’ll rise up in spite of the pain.

I’ll rise up and do it a thousand times again

for you.

 

And the silence isn’t quiet.

And it feels like it’s getting hard to breathe and I know you feel like dying.

But I promise we’ll take the world to its feet-all day.

 

And I’ll rise up. I’ll rise like the day. I’ll rise up. I’ll rise not afraid.

I’ll rise up and I ‘ll do it a thousand times again-for you.

 

All we need is…All we need is hope.

And for that we have each other. And for that we have each other.

We will rise, we will rise, we will rise up, we will rise

 

 

And I’ll rise up, rise like the day

I’ll rise up in spite of the pain.

I’ll rise up a thousand times again.

And, we”ll rise up and ride like the waves and we’ll rise up a thousand times again

for you.
