Rise Up

It took a little time ‘til the darkness came.

It wasn’t her crime but she took the blame.

It’s hard to see the picture when you’re in the frame

And fate is calling out your name…

 

A burning desire under Cupid’s spell started a fire in the very depths of hell

For love she hungered, so empty inside but all she swallowed was her pride…

 

Chorus:

Rise up, reach out and seize the day.  Take up your bed and walk away. 

Avowed to honour and obey…

No one is born to serve but we don’t always get what we deserve.

 

And it’s hard to make a stand and defend your space

When a tender hand becomes a fist in your face

And a loving whisper is now bated breath and a kiss of love is the kiss of death…

 

Repeat chorus

 

It took a little time, but the darkness came…
