Lyrics

Rise

Written By: Lexi Keller

Stolen my family and my friends
Taken my heart beat again
Taken these fingers from these strings
Taken my voice that sings.

Held myself back all this time
For you I lived a lie
Denied the bright star I deserve
Now its my own self I will serve

And I will Rise
And I will Rise
And I will Rise

Pushed you away
Refused to
Look at the truth
My time you see is most precious to me
I will not waste it.

I cannot run, I cannot hide
I cannot run, I cannot hide

And I will Rise
And I will Rise
And I will Rise

Falling

Written By: Lexi Keller

Confusion settles in for a night by the fire..
He makes small talk but has a deeper understanding..
And it all seems too special and it all seems too good,
But your real and your open, and your beautiful, don't let this be short lived.

Cause I'm falling for you, like autumn leaves.
Falling for you.

Never felt this way before fire is contagious, strong with your words, nature is outrageous.

Fear shuffles in to a crowded room, though he mingles he feels utterly alone and it all seems too bizarre and it all seems too strange, but its real and its here its all encompassing, something must be done...

Cause I'm falling for you , like a star from the sky
Falling for you..

I won't be able to hide from you for long.. I won't be able to hold my breath any longer

Cause I'm falling for you
Like autumn leaves
Falling for you like a star from the sky
Falling for you like winter rain....

Lucky Boy

Written By: Lexi Keller

Laughs a little louder than he usually would.
Thinks more rationally than most others do.
Feels more intensely than the average person, average person does...
Sees between the lines.

So relaxed, no visible boundaries, yeh he's so laid back...

Lucky boy, Lucky boy, Lucky Boy, Lucky Boy, Lucky Boy....

So relaxed, no visible boundaries, yeh he's so laid back...

Lucky boy, Lucky boy, Lucky Boy, Lucky Boy, Lucky Boy....

Bridge

So relaxed, no visible boundaries, yeh he's so laid back...

Lucky boy, Lucky boy, Lucky Boy, Lucky Boy, Lucky Boy....
