Lyrics

Arise

Written By: chasetheglow

Arise

“Don’t let go of my hand
Don’t let go
Don’t let in,” she said
“Don’t let the world talk you down

Don’t embrace what you’re told
Or accept what you see
Fight it off,” she said
“Don’t let the world talk you down

‘Cause there’s more goin’ on
Beneath the storm
Behind closed doors
A growing force
There are lies, shifting tides”

Speak Out, Speak Loud
Lift your voice like you never have
Arise my child (x2)

“Raise a song up to hear
Pierce like a trumpet
Sound it off,” she said
“Don’t let the world pass on by

Gather the dangerous
Lift it up
In one accord,” she said
“Don’t let the world pass on by

‘Cause there’s more goin’ on
Besides the blame
Within the page
Beyond the frame
There are lies, shifting tides”

Speak Out, Speak Loud
Lift your voice like you never have
Arise my child (x2)

V1:
Tonight.
We fill the air with glowing melodies and offerings.
Entangling chords and words and close-knit harmonies.

Tonight.
We walk the narrow course desiring more than worldly things.
Releasing utmost thanks and praise fit for a king.

Ch:
Gazing up to seek your splendor
Filled with wonder
Resounding, Astounding One (x2)

V2:
Excite.
We dream again of youth ablaze, unaltered childlike faith
Exchanging stress and strife for never-ending grace.

Excite.
We meditate on wondrous works and entering heaven's gates.
Declaring God is surely present in this place..

Bridge:
We sing.
Can you feel it getting louder?

A spark.
Can you feel it getting stronger?

The glow.
Can you feel it start to burn now, my heartbeat lights the way, you can feel it start to sway.

Don't Wait For A Sign

Written By: chasetheglow

Don’t Wait for a Sign

V1:
You watch the day
Passing by
Lights flashing, sirens blaring
But you only hear your screaming thoughts

I know your eyes
Hide secretly
Deciphering the mold
You feel locked inside

Pre-Ch:
Don’t you feel like climbing out of the drowning waters?
Don’t you feel there’s something more to hold out for?

V2:
You feel such pain
From realistically
So sadistically
Packing your dreams away

You loath regret
Like ammunition carry
Concealed baggage
Like it had a trigger

Pre-Ch

Ch:
Don’t wait for a sign
The answer is calling out for you

Pretty

Written By: chasethglow

Pretty.

She covered her head, in a tangle of red
As the blinds lost their battle for the day

As the light filtered in, the demons whispered
While her angels stood firmly overhead

And as she lifts her eyes
To the bronze sunrise
She cries

Maybe today is gunna be the day I do away with
Maybe I don’t have to wake on this battlefield
Am I fighting alone? Am I fighting alone?

The mirror swung wide, as she opened the door
To the devil and high dollar pills

The demons swirled round, as she fell to the floor
While her angel drew his gleaming sword

As she closed her eyes
She cried

Maybe today is gunna be the day I do away with
Maybe I don’t have to wake on this battlefield
Am I fighting alone? Am I fighting alone?

Her angel replied,
“Can’t you see me watching?
Can’t you feel me fighting for you?
Can’t you sense me breathing?
Can’t you feel me guarding you..”

She covered her head, in a tangle of red
As she awoke to tile and porcelain

Her angel exhausted, fell to one knee
Surrounded by demon casualties

As she lifts her eyes, she cries

Maybe today was gunna be the day I did away with
Maybe I don’t wanna wake on this battlefield
I’m not fighting alone, I’m not fighting alone

I can see you watching
I can feel you fighting for me
I can sense you breathing
I can feel you loving me

Discography

Set List

To accommodate a broad variety of settings and venues, chasetheglow is available for both concert and praise/worship sets.

The typical chasetheglow worship set draws from a combination of popular selections and our personal favorites. In the past, we have included songs by Chris Tomlin, David Crowder, Leeland and Lincoln Brewster. We're happy to personalize our worship set to better compliment a sermon or theme, just ask!

In contrast, a typical chasetheglow concert is laced with our six originals and a handful of covers. We represent a medley of tempos and tones within our 60-minute set. Though the specific songs vary, we currently cover music from Anberlin, Paramore, Switchfoot and Jennifer Knapp.
