  • Hold on, my mother said, don't give up on this
    Go on my lover said, you were meant for this
    This is all I have, this is all I know
    I could never let it go, all my life it's filled me up with hope
    I won't quit, this is my purpose
    And even through the struggles and hard times it's fucking worth it

    You gotta rise up, rise up, rise up
    You gotta fight it, fight it, fight it
    You can't just follow, follow, follow
    Greatness can't arise through typical lives

    It's never easy to get what you want, step up your drive
    Throw doubt aside when you fight for what you love
    Your dreams are shot and there's a chance to give up
    Don't give up, show your guts, show them what you're made of
    Overwhelmed by doubt, life's currents wore me down
    Losing what I need found
    I'm adrift, out of it, alone among the crowd

    You gotta rise up, rise up, rise up
    You gotta fight it, fight it, fight it
    You can't just follow, follow, follow
    Greatness can't arise through typical lives
    You gotta rise up, rise up, rise up
    You gotta fight it, fight it, fight it
    You can't just follow, follow, follow
    Greatness can't arise through typical lives

    Hold on my mother said, don't give up on this
    Go on my lover said, you were meant for this
    Hold on my mother said, don't give up on this
    Go on my lover said, you were meant for this

    You gotta rise up, rise up, rise up
    You gotta fight it, fight it, fight it
    You can't just follow, follow, follow
    Greatness can't arise through typical lives
    You gotta rise up, rise up, rise up
    You gotta fight it, fight it, fight it
    You can't just follow, follow, follow
    Greatness can't arise through typical lives Writer/s: ANDREW ROBERT WADE, RICHARD ROGERS, TOM DENNEY
