Donna Beasley: Music

Rise Above

(Donna Beasley)
Home Canned Beats (SESAC)

Tom Spaulding Music (BMI)

They call her “Smiley” like you’d call a big man “Tiny”

They call him “Loser” like they think it suits him

Neither ever felt the water

Been baptized by fire

Melted down, purified

 

The only thing that ever came without a struggle

Was falling love

Now two hold hands and form a winner’s circle

Lifted up to rise above

Rise above, rise above

 

She stumbled and she fell hard

He lost his own and found another heart

Carried on the shoulders of love

They ride high like champions

Riding high like champions

 

The only thing that ever came without a struggle

Was falling love

Now two hold hands and form a winner’s circle

Lifted up to rise above

Rise above, rise above
