about

Upbeat acoustic, with wonderful harmonies and a powerful refrain inspiring personal strength, "Rising Up" made it's debut on "Musicians for Boston Strong," a limited time CD fundraiser release produced by Emerson College in response to the Boston Marathon bomb tragedy. This is where Folk meets Reggae and everyone rises up strong!

lyrics

Half way back to where I started. Half way down that worn out path. Half a mind don't always make it. Half way home, and fading fast. Thrown away broken pieces keeping me weighed down. Getting mind and soul to face that half a heart could never make it. Better be rising, rising, rising, rising up. Rising, rising, rising, rising up. Rising, rising, rising, rising up strong. Every day a million choices. Every choice another chance. Bringing all I have to face that at this point I have to make it. Better be rising, rising, rising, rising up. Rising, rising, rising, rising up. Rising, rising, rising, rising up strong. If I go it alone, strong and on my own, half a lie half a chance, halfway back again but fading fast. I got to be rising, rising, rising, rising up. Rising, rising, rising, rising up. Rising, rising, rising, rising up strong. If I go it alone, strong and on my own, half a lie half a chance, halfway back again but fading fast. Every day a million choices, every choice another chance. Got to raise a host of voices, so we all can share the dance. I got to be rising. You want to be rising. We need to be rising, rising up. Rising, rising, rising, rising up...rising up now!
