  1. I Will Rise

Lyrics

Like a Phoenix (I Will Rise)
Written by Sara Petite

I’ve been down, I’ve been down,
For far too long, at the edge of a cliff barely hanging on
I woke up in the morning, in the eye of a storm.
I can’t sink much deeper,
I’m hopin’ someday, hope it’s sooner than later,
I just can’t wait,
Like a Phoenix, I will rise.

We make our own burdens,
We build our own cross,
What would happen one day if I just got off?
Sweet surrender, I shall be released.
It might be tomorrow, it might be today,
Hope it’s sooner than later,
I just can’t wait,
Like a Phoenix, I will rise.

I will rise, I will rise, I will rise, I will sing,
In all of my Glory, I’ll find my wings,
Like a Phoenix, I will rise, from the Ashes.
In that Glorious moment, when I find my key,
My heart and my soul surrender in peace,
Like a Phoenix, I will rise from the ashes.

I’ve been heartbroken, humbled and crippled by fear,
All that I’ve got to show is I’m still standing here,
Yeah, I’m still standing here,
We build our own walls, we build our own cage,
Imprison our hearts, we’re shackled and chained,
Like a Phoenix, I will rise.
I’m hoping it comes before that fateful day
Solo

I take my last breath and descend to my grave,
My body to the fire, to the urn, my soul flies away.
It might be tomorrow, it might be today,
I ain’t no prisoner, I ain’t no slave,
Like a Phoenix, I Will Rise.

I will rise, I will rise, I will rise, I will sing,
In all of my Glory, I’ll find my wings,
Like a Phoenix, I will rise, from the Ashes.
In that Glorious moment, when I find my key,
My heart and my soul surrender in peace,
Like a Phoenix, I will rise from the ashes.

I will rise, I will rise, I will rise, I will rise,
I will rise, I will rise, I will rise,
Like a Phoenix, I will rise.
I will rise, I will rise, I will rise, I will rise,
I will rise, I will rise, I will rise,
Like a Phoenix, I will rise.
I will rise, I will rise, I will rise, I will rise,
I will rise, I will rise, I will rise,
Like a Phoenix, I will rise.
