Jukebox Friday

Rise Up – Andra Day

I just saw ‘Hacksaw Ridge‘ today, I’m going write about it more on Cultural Crusade next Tuesday. I love a good war movie, because a well-made one is supposed to make us braver and more grateful about the peace we are taking for granted right now. But hardly ever a war movie would leave me feeling hopeful. And ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ did. So for this week’s Jukebox Friday, I chose a beautiful song. A song about courage. Happy last Friday of 2016!

You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry go round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains

And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
And I’ll rise up
High like the waves
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousands times again
For you…

When the silence isn’t quiet
And it feels like it’s getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we’ll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
We’ll take it to its feet
And move mountains

And I’ll rise up…

All we need, all we need is hope
And for that we have each other
And for that we have each other
We will rise…

I’ll rise up…
