And you said rise above
Open your eyes up
And you said rise above
But I can’t, I can’t

How long will it take
Before these feelings go away
How much longer do I wait
And are there any real answers anyway

Too heavy, your silence in a crowded room
Louder than the loudest tune
I hang on every word

And you said rise above
Open your eyes up
And you said rise above
But I can’t, I can’t

I miss you in everything
I was too fast traveling to take you in
I know silence is no crime
Just wish I could hear you fill it up one more time

Yes, I know what you’d say to me
Exactly what you’d say to me
I still hang on every word

And you said rise above
Open your eyes up
And you said rise above
Yourself

In a time a treason
Is there time for trust
When there’s no them
Only us
Is there time for reason
Has your heart had enough
Is it time to let go
And rise above

And you said rise above
Open your eyes to love
And you said rise above
Yourself
