about

Featuring guitarist Mark Lettieri from Snarky Puppy

lyrics

I take my first breath
Open my eyes
Surrounded by darkness
And one sliver of light
Roll on my side
Turn off the snooze
My body wrapped tight
In this lovely cocoon

And I rise
I rise
Hallelujah, I’m alive
And I rise
I rise
Hallelujah, I’m alive

Removing the purple and white colored sheets
I cradle my legs and I laugh at my feet
A thin yellow nightshirt exposes my skin
A pale colored hand pulls me back in

And I rise
I rise
Hallelujah, I’m alive
And I rise
I rise
Hallelujah, I’m alive

Out of the bed
I move towards the door
Inhale that caffeine waiting on the next floor
Such a simple delight
So for granted we take
The gift we receive just to be awake

I rise
I rise
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, I’m alive
And I rise
I rise
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, I’m alive
I rise
