Rise Up Lyrics

by Shemekia Copeland

She got a sink fulla dishes, and clothes on the line
She gotta a sweet little baby and a husband she can't find
She gets alot of free advice from her family and friends
and it's gettin' to the point where she's gotta sink or swim
so she tells herself...

To Rise Up (Rise Up)
She's gonna find something better rise up (Rise Up)
She's gonna get herself together
When life hits you like a truck, you gotta rise up
(riff 2X)
She got a dead end job, but deep down she's got dreams
so she's having a yard sale and pawning her wedding ring
she gotta a new attitude cause she's sick and tired of crying all night
come hell or high water she's gonna start a brand new life
So sit back and watch that girl...
Rise Up (Rise Up)
She's gonna find something better, rise up (Rise Up)
She's gonna get herself together
When life hits you like a truck, you gotta rise up

Solo

Rise Up (Rise Up)
She's gonna find something better rise up (Rise Up)
She's gonna get herself together
Rise up (rise up)
Rise up (Rise up)
Rise Up (Rise up)
When life hits you like a truck, you gotta rise up
