Rise

I’ve been low

And I surely know

The darkest hour

Lost myself

Got a taste of hell

But then I climbed back out

Widely now, I open my eyes

Highly now, I know I will rise

You can try to clip my wings

(try to take them and break me)

You can try to clip my wings

But I’m still, I’m still

I’m still, I’m still gonna rise

We all lose our way

Some people never change

I’m not one of them

I stand on solid ground now

Don’t try to bring me down

Don’t even waste your breath

Widely now, I open my eyes

Highly now, I know I will rise

You can try to clip my wings

(try to take them and break me)

You can try to clip my wings

But I’m still, I’m still

I’m still, I’m still gonna rise
