Elevate

Album: Who Do You Trust? (2018)
  • Woah, lift me higher
    Woah, when I get down
    Woah, lift me higher
    Woah, oh

    I swear to God that I might just be the death of me
    Just count the reasons why I'm crazy, yeah, it's stressin' me
    I'm burning pictures of myself like it could set me free
    But I can't stop me 'cause I gotta reach my destiny, like hey, whoa
    I was dead, now I'm living because I made my decision
    No, I will not be a victim and I'm like hey, whoa
    No, I don't need permission to elevate with precision
    I'm 'bout to break through the ceiling

    'Cause I need something to lift me up when I'm down
    I get lost in my head for so long, I can't get out
    When I'm feeling like I'm crawling in my skin and sinking down
    I need something to lift me up

    I wanna elevate
    Elevate
    Watch me elevate

    Woah, lift me higher
    Woah, when I get down
    Woah, lift me higher
    Woah, oh
    Watch me elevate

    I know they say that the best is always yet to come
    But nothing happens, I can't sit and wait until I'm numb
    I get that feeling in my soul, then I cut and run
    'Cause I can't take another second, watch me elevate like hey, whoa
    Yeah, I'm taking this vision, my God body has risen
    No, I can't stop with this rhythm and I'm like hey, whoa
    No, my mind ain't a prison, I won't succumb to these villains
    That keep attacking my feelings

    I need something to lift me up when I'm down
    I get lost in my head for so long, I can't get out
    When I'm feeling like I'm crawling in my skin and sinking down
    I need something to lift me up

    I wanna elevate
    Elevate
    Watch me elevate

    Woah, lift me higher
    Woah, when I get down
    (Elevate)
    Woah, lift me higher
    Woah, oh
