Rise Above

Rise Above

(Words and music K. Johnson)

You’ve been stood up you’ve been knocked down
You’ve been messed with and you’ve been pushed around
You’ve tried to find somebody who wouldn’t waste your time
You’ve tried to find somebody who wouldn’t steal you blind
Because all you really needed was some kindness and love
A little helping hand so you can rise above
Rise Above

Rise above don’t sink below
The waves of life that we all know

You’ve been dismissed and overlooked
You’ve been lied to and you’ve been underbooked
You’ve tried to find somebody that could really understand
You’ve tried to be the leader of a rock and roll band
Because all you really needed was some kindness and love
A little helping hand so you can rise above
Rise Above

Rise above don’t sink below
The waves of life that we all know

We’ve all been set up and shouted down
Told it was the truth when lies abound
We’ve all wanted someone who is honest and kind
Through all life’s illusions will we see them shine
Because we all had visions of kindness and love
Let’s all help each other so we can rise above
Rise Above
