  • Lay your pretty head down on my shoulder
    You don't have to worry anymore
    This old world is cold and getting colder
    And I know how to lock and bolt the door

    I'm strong enough to hold you through the winter
    Mean enough to stare your demons down
    The hard times put the shine into the diamond
    I won't let that keep us in the ground

    I'm a riser
    I'm a get up off the ground, don't run and hider
    Pushing comes a-shovin'
    Hey I'm a fighter
    When darkness comes to town, I'm a lighter
    A get out aliver, out of the fire
    Survivor

    If you we ain't got no money I can make it
    I ain't afraid of working to the bone
    When I don't know what I'm do and I can fake it
    I'll pray till Jesus rolls away the stone

    And I'm a riser
    I'm a get up off the ground, don't run and hider
    Pushin' comes a-shovin'
    Hey I'm a fighter
    When darkness comes to town, I'm a lighter
    A get out aliver, of the fire, survivor

    I'm a trier
    I'm a get down low so I can lift you higher
    An army couldn't keep down my desire
    Yeah

    I'm a riser
    I'm a get up off the ground, don't run and hider
    Hey pushin' comes to shovin'
    Baby I'm a fighter
    When darkness comes to town, I'm a lighter
    A get out aliver, of the fire, survivor

    I'm a riser
    I'm a riser
    I'm a riser Writer/s: Steven Thomas Moakler, Travis Meadows
