Lyrics

Rise Above

Written By: Randall Spear

Rise Above
Rise Above
Until you find love

It's not easy to forgive
But you only have one life to live
and if all you see is negative
Take a look at the other side
there's a door that's open wide
asking you to come inside
and forget your foolish pride
Chorus

Shadows are growing all the time
leaving no peace of mind
but if you look you will find
that even in your darkest hour
there is another power
growing like a fragile flower
climbing up to the top of the tower
Chorus

You might think it's easy for me
to sing this song so easily
but nothing in life comes for free
and the price I've paid I'm paying still
adding up this heavy bill
swallowing this bitter pill
climbing up this slippery hill

to Rise Above..

Randall Spear
