Rise

  • You can stand beside the madness like a fallen tear
    You can hold on to the sadness like a souvenir
    Or you can close your eyes
    And see your life
    Like the air
    You can tap into the strength you never knew you had
    You can breathe into your faith no matter where you are
    Just close your eyes and change your life
    Like the air

    Like the air you can
    Rise from the rubble with your mind, you can hover
    You can rise like the tide, like the heat it in the summer
    Yes, I know there are those who will wanna bring you down
    But you can rise with your mind and make your higher power proud
    You can rise, like the air you can rise

    The earth can pull you down with all its gravity
    And the measure of your worth is sometimes hard to see
    So just hold on, when the night is done
    Like the sun

    Like the air you can
    Rise from the rubble with your mind, you can hover
    You can rise like the tide, like the heat it in the summer
    Yes, I know there are those who will wanna bring you down
    But you can rise with your mind and make your higher power proud
    You can rise, like the air you can rise

    So even when your bones feel like weights
    And it's hard to lift the smile on your perfect face
    You can still find a peaceful place
    Close your eyes until you're floating up in outer space
    It'll be alright, they're just jealous of your highs
    So they can knock you down, but

    Like the air you can
    Rise from the rubble with your mind, you can hover
    You can rise like the tide, like the heat it in the summer
    Yes, I know there are those who will wanna bring you down
    But you can rise with your mind and make your higher power proud
    You can rise, like the air you can rise
    Like the air you can rise Writer/s: Antonina Armato, Timothy James Price, Adam Schmalholz, Selena Gomez
