When Will We Rise?

I let my fears get the best of me. They rage and roar inside of me. I can't seem to be the person you made me to be locked in the prison of my frailty. I've once again come to the peace forsaken bed where failure rests and lays it's tired head. Now regret has blinded my eyes and planned my demise. But I can't help but ask, When we will rise? When will we rise?

Rise above the flames, the pain that's calling our name. Rise above the fear that's kept us down, tied up and bound. Rise above regret, the things you just can't seem to forget. Rise in a new way. Rise to never be the same. When will we rise? When will we rise?

I can see so clearly the girl I'm supposed to be. It's like she's standing right in front of me. But I can't speak, when I move to become her, I'm too weak. So close yet oh so far. The things I've let slip, slip through my fingertips. How do I forgive myself? When will I rise? When will I rise?

{Repeat Chorus}

I will remember this day, as much as I may want to forget. I will rise from this valley of regret. Can't turn back the clock to try to stop this mistake pile up. But I can let you grow me into somebody who lives freely. No more being weighed down.

{Repeat Chorus 2x}
