   The Sun Is Rising 

    Album lyrics

 

 

You Wrote It

I’ve been wandering trying everything

I went left but I probably shoulda gone right

I’ve been stumbling my hope is crumbling

Why does day always turn to night

But You’ve already planned it where You want me to be

So I’ll keep on following and I will let You lead

 

Chorus

I had to go there to end up here

Though the story wasn’t clear

But I know it will be good because You wrote it

I tried to go up but I fell down 

I couldn’t get off of the ground

But the future will be fine I just know it

Cuz’ You wrote it so I know it 

 

At this very moment 

life seems to make sense

But I’m not sure how I got here

With all the twists and bends

When you least expect it 

Help is on the way

G-d knows what you’re going through

and He feels your pain 

 

But You’ve already planned it 

Where You want me to be

So I’ll keep on following 

and I will let You lead

 

Chorus

I had to go there to end up here

Though the story wasn’t clear

But I know it will be good because You wrote it

I tried to go up but I fell down 

I couldn’t get off of the ground

But the future will be fine I just know it

Cuz’ You wrote it so I know it

 

Bridge

Keep on moving keep on walking

There’s no use no use in stopping

Every single step will bring you closer

Keep on moving keep on walking

There’s no use no use in stopping

Every single step will bring you closer

 

Chorus

I had to go there to end up here

Though the story wasn’t clear

But I know it will be good because You wrote it

I had to go there to end up here

Though the story wasn’t clear

But I know it will be good because You wrote it

I tried to go up but I fell down 

I couldn’t get off of the ground

But the future will be fine I just know it

Cuz’ You wrote it so I know it

 


 

Life Is An Adventure 

Life is an adventure 

And I wanna take it

There may be some

Bumps along the way

But I know I’ll make it

I gotta keep going

And moving along

When things get rough I’ll

Keep singing my song

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

 

Chorus

So come along with me

Set your heavy heart free

Keep your head up and soon you’ll see

Things are changing life is amazing

We just need a little belief

Come along with me

Come along with me

 

Every morning is a new beginning

You may think you’re losing 

But you’re really winning

It’s easy to see the strength

The strength in others

Know that you have so much to offer

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

 

Chorus

So come along with me

Set your heavy heart free

Keep your head up and soon you’ll see

Things are changing life is amazing

We just need a little belief

Come along with me

Come along with me

 

So come along with me

Set your heavy heart free

Keep your head up and soon you’ll see

Things are changing life is amazing

We just need a little belief

Come along with me

Come along with me



 

You Are Enough

I tend to be really hard on myself

I’m not sure why 

Cuz’ I don’t do that to anyone else

I’m trying to accept my flaws

But it can be hard because

I never feel like I’m enough

But putting myself down 

Pushes me into the ground

When I could build myself up

 

Chorus

I am enough 

It’s time to accept my imperfections

And I am not stuck 

I’m just heading in a new direction

All hope isn’t lost for me

Soon I will be free

And all hope isn’t lost for you

You’re gonna make it through

 

Try to be kind you gotta treat yourself 

Like your own best friend

Retrain your mind

To believe in yourself

Know that it’s not the end

 

Try to accept your flaws 

Though it can be hard because

You may not feel like you’re enough

But putting yourself down 

Pushes you into the ground

When you could build yourself self up

 

You are enough 

It’s time to accept your imperfections

And you are not stuck 

You’re  just heading in a new direction

All hope isn’t lost for you

You’re gonna make it through

And all hope isn’t lost for me

Soon I will be free 

 

Bridge

No matter how dark this 

Stormy night gets

Your light still shines through

It’s not over yet

No matter how dark this 

Stormy night gets

Your light still shines through

It’s not over yet

 

Chorus

You are enough 

It’s time to accept your imperfections

You are enough 

It’s time to accept your imperfections

And you are not stuck 

You’re  just heading in a new direction

All hope isn’t lost for you

You’re gonna make it through

And all hope isn’t lost for me

Soon I will be free 


 

 

Light Up The world

 

Every day is a mystery

And every night is filled with uncertainty

And all the odds are going against us

But we have the Almighty

Fighting for us

 

Chorus

Light up the world Light up the world

We’ve been in darkness for too long

Now It’s time to greet the sun

Light up the world Light up the world

Greatness is knocking at your door

Don’t ignore it anymore anymore

 

Sometimes I wonder why 

Some things happen in my life

Does G-d really want me 

to succeed succeed 

I guess that growing 

Doesn’t always feel good

You’ve gotta breakthrough 

If you want to be free

 

Chorus

Light up the world Light up the world

We’ve been in darkness for too long

Now It’s time to greet the sun

Light up the world Light up the world

Greatness is knocking at your door

Don’t ignore it anymore anymore

 

Bridge

There’s a whole world waiting for you

Soon you’re gonna figure out what to choose

All you gotta do is a little bit

G-d is gonna help you with the rest of it

There’s a whole world waiting for you

Soon you’re gonna figure out what to choose

All you gotta do is a little bit

G-d is gonna help you with the rest of it

 

Chorus 

Light up the world light up the world

We’ve been in darkness for too long

Now it’s time to greet the sun

Light up the world light up the world

Greatness is knocking at your door

Don’t ignore it

 

Light up the world Light up the world

We’ve been in darkness for too long

Now It’s time to greet the sun

Light up the world Light up the world

Greatness is knocking at your door

Don’t ignore it anymore anymore

Light up the world light up the world



 

Say The Words

When we cry G-d’s crying too

He knows exactly what we are going through

And He’s the only One who can fix it

He is by your side every minute 

And He always wants to hear from you

 

Chorus 

Say the words say the words

Know He’s always listening

Say the words say the words

Soon your spirits will start lifting

There’s nothing too small nothing too great

For the One who chose your fate

And know it’s never too late

Say the words Say the words

Say the words say the words

 

When we toss and turn at night

G-d never loses sight 

He’s holding our hands 

He’s the only one who understands 

Maybe He gave me these tests

To turn to Him and make the best

Of this custom order life He made for me

I still need to thank Him 

For the gifts He gave to me gave to me

 

Chorus 

Say the words say the words

Know He’s always listening

Say the words say the words

Soon your spirits will start lifting

There’s nothing too small nothing too great

For the One who chose your fate

And know it’s never too late

Say the words Say the words

Say the words say the words

 

Bridge

He catches every tear 

Wants to wipe away all your fears

You are so precious to Him

He catches every tear 

Wants to wipe away all your fears

You are so precious to Him

 

Say the words say the words say the words

Say the words say the words say the words

 

Chorus 

Say the words say the words

Know He’s always listening

Say the words say the words

Soon your spirits will start lifting

There’s nothing too small nothing too great

For the One who chose your fate

And know it’s never too late

Say the words Say the words

Say the words say the words


 

The Sun Is Rising

The sun is rising it’s almost day

The sun is rising I can finally see 

The beautiful sun rays

Can you feel it something is happening

Will you believe it or will you just stay asleep

The sun is rising

The sun is rising

 

Chorus

And I’m not gonna stay in the dark

There’s way too much to give in this heart

This won’t be easy 

But what I’m saying is

Now I’m totally sure 

The sun is rising

The sun is rising

 

The sun is rising It’s almost here 

Pull away the curtain there’s no room for despair

You can have all that you want 

All that you want to achieve 

When you feel you’re stuck against a wall 

Know you can be free

The sun is rising

The sun is rising

 

Chorus

And I’m not gonna stay in the dark

There’s way too much to give in this heart

This won’t be easy 

But what I’m saying is

Now I’m totally sure 

The sun is rising

The sun is rising

 

Bridge

It’s rising faster now 

the whole world is aglow

Forget all of the past 

There’s no need for that anymore

Just let the sun’s golden rays dry away

Your tears your tears your tears

The sun is rising

The sun is rising

 

And I’m not gonna stay in the dark

There’s way too much to give in this heart

This won’t be easy 

But what I’m saying is

Now I’m totally sure 

The sun is rising

The sun is rising

 

The sun is rising It’s almost here 

Pull away the curtain there’s no room for despair


 

Work In Progress

Things don’t just happen

Birds don’t just fly

If you wanna be something

Gotta reach up towards the sky

Nothing is handed out

On a silver platter

Whatever comes easy

Usually doesn’t matter

 

So I’m gonna give it my all 

Stand up on my two feet when I fall

Cuz’ the road blocks on the way

Made me who I am today

 

Chorus

I’m still a work in progress

And I may always be

It’s ok that I’m not perfect yes

That’s quite alright with me

And I’m still gonna try to 

Succeed with all my might

I don’t need a ribbon

Cuz’ my journey’s better 

Than a finish line

 

Everybody’s in a race 

But what are we trying to chase

Are we ever satisfied

Ever happy with our lives

If we try to embrace

And try to appreciate 

Our gifts our flaws

Everything we have because

 

Chorus

I’m still a work in progress

And I may always be

It’s ok that I’m not perfect yes

That’s quite alright with me

And I’m still gonna try to 

Succeed with all my might

I don’t need a ribbon

Cuz’ my journey’s better 

Than a finish line

 

Bridge

Where have I been today 

And where am I going

Where am I going

I have to take the jump

Get over my fear my fear of not knowing

Life’s too precious to go with the flow

You gotta swim up the stream if you want something more

Ooh yeah Yeah yeah 

 

Chorus

I’m still a work  in progress

And I may always be

It’s ok that I’m not perfect yes

That’s quite alright with me

 

I’m still a work in progress

And I may always be

It’s ok that I’m not perfect yes

That’s quite alright with me

And I’m still gonna try to 

Succeed with all my might

I don’t need a ribbon

Cuz’ my journey’s better 

Than a finish line


 

Give It Over

It fell before me without a warning

It should have said handle with care

I need a manual to guide this wandering soul

To wherever it’s supposed to be

 

Pre Chorus

I get clarity and then I’m scared

I’m confused then it’s all clear 

I see it once then it disappears 

It’s not my place to understand 

Everything is in G-d’s hands 

I’m just a vessel soon I’ll be settled

 

Chorus 

Cuz I know there’s no rhyme or reason

Life changes just like the seasons 

Oh no matter where I go

And I’ll take the highs and I’ll take the lows

G-d I just want to let go to let go

And give it over to You give it over to You

 

And when I think I’ve finally found it

It slips away and I feel abandoned

You can’t bottle happiness 

It’s you that has to create it 

And then it’s yours 

And you can open any door

 

Pre Chorus

I get clarity and then I’m scared

I’m confused then it’s all clear 

I see it once then it disappears 

It’s not my place to understand 

Everything is in G-d’s hands 

I’m just a vessel soon I’ll be settled

 

Chorus 

Cuz I know there’s no rhyme or reason

Life changes just like the seasons 

Oh no matter where I go

And I’ll take the highs and I’ll take the lows

G-d I just want to let go to let go

And give it over to You give it over to You

 

Pre Chorus

I get clarity and then I’m scared

I’m confused then it’s all clear 

I see it once then it disappears 

It’s not my place to understand 

Everything is in G-d’s hands 

I’m just a vessel soon I’ll be settled

 

Chorus 

Cuz I know there’s no rhyme or reason

Life changes just like the seasons 

Oh no matter where I go

And I’ll take the highs and I’ll take the lows

G-d I just want to let go to let go

And give it over to You give it over to You

By Your Side

Put on a smile 

Take off that frown

Something is happening

Something is going down

You’ve been suffering for way too long

Put on the music and sing a new song and 

Don’t keep your light hidden 

Dance to your own rhythm

 

Chorus

Keep watching the birds fly 

And soak in the sunlight 

You’ll be wonderful everything will be alright

Don’t know how you’ll get through

Get through this dark time

I’ll be there with you

Standing by your side

Forever and ever

Never say never

Forever and ever

We’ll get through this together

 

Things could be better 

But they could be worse

Count the blessings that you have

You gotta do that first

Even if every door is closed

Even if you can’t make up your mind

You’re trying to get ahead 

But keep falling behind

 

You’ll find your place I know

Just breathe and take it slow

 

Chorus

Keep watching the birds fly 

And soak in the sunlight 

You’ll be wonderful everything will be alright

Don’t know how you’ll get through

Get through this dark time

I’ll be there with you

Standing by your side

Forever and ever

Never say never

Forever and ever

We’ll get through this together

 

Bridge

I’ve been through this so many times

I’m trying to leave the past behind 

And no it isn’t simple

We’ve all got things to figure out 

And that’s just what life is about

So love yourself a little

 

Chorus

Keep watching the birds fly 

And soak in the sunlight 

You’ll be wonderful everything will be alright

 

Keep watching the birds fly 

And soak in the sunlight 

You’ll be wonderful everything will be alright

Don’t know how you’ll get through

Get through this dark time

I’ll be there with you

Standing by your side

Forever and ever

Never say never

Forever and ever

We’ll get through this together

 

Standing Tall

I can’t describe the way I felt today

Nothing’s going right 

And I just can’t wait

For whatever’s supposed to be

I’ve been sitting on the edge of my seat

And I can’t take the suspense 

Will I ever ever feel again

Just wait my child 

It will all be worth your while

 

Chorus

I may fail and I may fall

But I’m standing my ground I’m standing tall

Sometimes it’s hard sometimes I’m weak 

But I’m much stronger than I used to be

And I’m taking my time

Trying to figure out who I need to be

I’m not perfect and that’s fine

I’ve been writing my own history

 

I’ve never pushed myself harder than this

I didn’t know such tall mountains exist

I’ll keep climbing no matter what 

Whatever it takes to get to the top

My hands are shaky now 

My vision’s hazy now

I know I’m never by myself 

You’re always there 

For me when I need help

 

Chorus

I may fail and I may fall

But I’m standing my ground I’m standing tall

Sometimes it’s hard sometimes I’m weak 

But I’m much stronger than I used to be

And I’m taking my time

Trying to figure out who I need to be

I’m not perfect and that’s fine

I’ve been writing my own history

 

Bridge

I’m not saying it’s always a happy ending

I’m done with excuses 

No more pretending

From now on I’ll just take the truth

Help me find my way I’ll try not to complain 

I go for the real deal don’t like to play games

From now on I’ll just take the truth

 

Chorus

I may fail and I may fall

But I’m standing my ground I’m standing tall

Sometimes it’s hard sometimes I’m weak 

But I’m much stronger than I used to be

 

I may fail and I may fall

But I’m standing my ground I’m standing tall

Sometimes it’s hard sometimes I’m weak 

But I’m much stronger than I used to be

And I’m taking my time

Trying to figure out who I need to be

I’m not perfect and that’s fine

I’ve been writing my own history

 


 

You Are Loved

If you feel like your smile wasn’t noticed 

Smile anyway smile anyway

If you tried to help but you were turned down

Know that anyone would be lucky to have you around

 

There may always be someone trying to dull your shine

But believe in yourself and leave those thoughts behind

 

Chorus

To someone you may be the whole world

Don’t ever tell yourself

You’re a helpless girl

Surround yourself with people

Who see you for who you are

You are wonderful 

You are loved yes you are 

You are wonderful 

You are loved yes you are 

 

If you try to say positive words but you’re not heard

Say them anyway say them anyway

If you feel like all the odds are

Not on your side

Know that G-d’s gonna help you 

Find your way on this ride

 

There may always be someone trying to dull your shine

But believe in yourself and leave those thoughts behind

 

Chorus

To someone you may be the whole world

Don’t ever tell yourself

You’re a helpless girl

Surround yourself with people

Who see you for who you are

You are wonderful 

You are loved yes you are 

You are wonderful 

You are loved yes you are 

 

Chorus

To someone you may be the whole world

Don’t ever tell yourself

You’re a helpless girl

Surround yourself with people

Who see you for who you are

You are wonderful 

You are loved yes you are 

You are wonderful 

You are loved yes you are 



 

Highlight Reel

The only thing I’m sure of 

Is that I’m not sure what’s coming next

I’ve been feeling so distant 

When all I really want is to connect

When the curtain falls 

And reality calls me back to life

At the end of the day I just want You to say

I’ll be alright I will be alright 

 

Chorus

When the spotlight dims 

And the show is done 

Does life still look good or do you wanna run

Somewhere else even if you don’t know where

When the spotlight dims and the show is done

Do you still have a smile on

Or is it just for show so the whole world can know 

Let’s be real life isn’t just a highlight reel

You can show the world what, what you really feel 

 

You’ve seen lots of pictures with perfect faces

Such happy people in beautiful places

Let me tell you things aren’t always what they seem

With the way the world is going 

Anything can look like a dream

Once it’s been through a little bit of editing

Anything can look beautiful with a little editing 

 

Chorus

When the spotlight dims 

And the show is done 

Does life still look good or do you wanna run

Somewhere else even if you don’t know where

When the spotlight dims and the show is done

Do you still have a smile on

Or is it just for show so the whole world can know 

Let’s be real life isn’t just a highlight reel

You can show the world what, what you really feel 

 

Chorus

When the spotlight dims 

And the show is done 

Does life still look good or do you wanna run

Somewhere else even if you don’t know where

When the spotlight dims and the show is done

Do you still have a smile on

Or is it just for show so the whole world can know 

Let’s be real life isn’t just a highlight reel

You can show the world what, what you really feel
