Rise Up

You probably don't know that I grew up with so much stagefright that lasted from my first piano recital in the 1st grade all the way into my professional career.  This song is a rah-rah I can do it song - it starts with "shut up" to the haters yes, but mostly to that deep-seated negative self-talk we carry around.  My kids especially loved jumping around to the fun dance breaks after every chorus thanks to new co-writer of mine & hip/hop producer Ely Macadangdang.  Like a number of other writers/producers on this album, we haven't met yet in person but wow, what a fun first collaboration.  Ely gets props for jumping in there to produce his first pop/EDM track!  Time to set the world on fiyah!!!

 

RISE UP

Shut up, I’m speaking 

I’m finding the courage to say

That I’m here, stop counting me out

‘Cause I’m gonna stand out today

I’m gonna stand out today – hey

 

I’m not invisible

Not anymore, not anymore

(call me) Call me invincible

(call me) I am original

(call me) I am unsinkable

Wouldn’t it be so wonderful

 

To rise up today

Rise up today

Set the world on fire today

You’ll see me rise up…today

              I’m shooting right up

              I’m shooting right up

 

Get out, outta my mind

I’m breaking the ceiling today

I’m sky-bound, yeah I’m leaving

Lame excuses - gonna make my own way

I’m gonna make my own way

 

I’m not invisible

Not anymore, not anymore

(call me) Call me invincible

(call me) I am original

(call me) I am unsinkable

Wouldn’t it be so wonderful

 

To rise up today

Rise up today

Set the world on fire today

You’ll see me rise up…today

              I’m shooting right up

              I’m shooting right up

              I’m shooting right up
