Aaron Gilmartin tells us about this song: "'Rising' is a hope that I am doing my best and feeling grateful for even the mistakes we all make along the way in our lives. I mention God a lot as I felt like I had help in finding the strength to go on when things weren't so easy. This song was inspired by realizing that the lessons learned through experience are so precious as to be more valuable than easier paths that might not involve experience."
The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
