  • You live your life
    You go day by day
    Like nothing can go wrong
    These skies are made
    They're changing the game
    You learn to play it hard

    And I know you wish for more
    And I know you try
    And I hope you realize
    You know the time is right

    The whole world is watching when you rise
    The whole world is beating for you right now
    Your whole life is flashing before your eyes
    It's all in this moment that changes all

    What are you waiting for?
    What are you fighting for?
    'Cause time's always slipping away
    The whole world is watching
    The whole world is watching
    You and you rise.

    You build your walls
    Then break them away
    'Cause that is what it takes
    You saved yourself
    You found who you are
    And that never goes away

    And I know you wish for more
    And I know you try
    And I hope you realize
    You know the time is right

    The whole world is watching when you rise
    The whole world is beating for you right now
    Your whole life is flashing before your eyes
    It's all in this moment that changes all

    What are you waiting for?
    What are you fighting for?
    'Cause time's always slipping away
    The whole world is watching
    Yeah, the whole world is watching
    You and you rise

    Your sacrifice comes through your mind
    But nothing is wasted
    You made it now
    You rise again, breaking out
    He said that you're taken you paid the price

    The whole world is watching
    The whole world is watching
    The whole world is watching
    You and you rise

    What are you waiting for?
    What are you fighting for?
    'Cause time's always slipping away
    The whole world is watching
    Yeah, the whole world is watching
    You and you rise Writer/s: DANIEL GIBSON, ROBERT WESTERHOLT, SHARON DEN ADEL
