Name of Song: Rise up

Rise up,
From what we once were,
To what we have hoped
We always preferred.

We encompass our loves,
And family and friends,
We’d like them to rise
As we all reach our end.

Chorus
And so it goes,
This lifelong struggle,
And so it goes,
My lifelong road,
And so it goes,
Becoming better,
And so it goes,
As we all try to know.
______

As I rise up above it,
It all feels so new,
I hope to stay here,
Leave behind all that news.

I know what it takes to
Rise above life,
The view is stupendous,
Right above all the strife.

I’d love you to join me,
So hard to believe,
That one can feel separate
From what we have been.

Chorus
And so it goes,
This lifelong struggle,
And so it goes,
My lifelong road,
And so it goes,
Becoming better,
And so it goes,
As we all try to know.
______

Growing and changing,
Learning from life,
Becoming much better,
Rising up above strife.

Never stop loving,
Despite how you feel,
Never stop hoping,
And showing your zeal.

Never stop caring,
We need so much love,
So many excuses,
As we rise up above.

Chorus
And so it goes,
This lifelong struggle,
And so it goes,
My lifelong road,
And so it goes,
Becoming better,
And so it goes,
As we all try to know.
