raise up lyrics – ledisi

“raise up”

i’m looking around and i see more of the same
people looking for purpose, someone to blame
as i’m on my quest for fame, every day the places change
as they humble trying to play the game

i figured it out, my dreams are bigger than me
been taken much further than i thought i would be
i’m so glad that i believe that god has plans for me
mama told me it will happen, you’ll see
yeah, yeah

time for you to raise up
time for you to get right
time for you to get up
time for you to be loud
time for you to raise up
get up, stand up, raise up

you gotta know who you are
you are meant for a purpose
what is meant for you is meant to be
you are meant to be

i couldn’t move forward ’til i let go off the past
i needed my freedom, i needed it bad
if we all could just forgive
it’s the only way to live
i have more now than i ever had

there is a path and it is written for you
take your time to find the truth
what do you have to lose?
it’s time for you to choose
no one else can do it for you

time for you to raise up
time for you to get right
time for you to get up
time for you to be loud
time for you to raise up
get up, stand up, raise up

you gotta know who you are
you are meant for a purpose
what is meant for you is meant to be
you are meant to be

when judgment day comes, have you given your best?
has the world been changed by the love that you left?
forgive those who tresp*ssed against you
rise through the pain, let it go
what happened is done, it’s time to live again

you gotta know who you are
you are meant for a purpose
what is meant for you is meant to be
you are meant to be

time for you to raise up
time for you to get right
time for you to get up
time for you to be loud
time for you to raise up
get up, stand up, raise up

you gotta know who you are
you are meant for a purpose
what is meant for you is meant to be
you are meant to be

time for you to raise up
time for you to get right
time for you to get up
time for you to be loud
time for you to raise up
get up, stand up, raise up

you gotta know who you are
you are meant for a purpose
raising for you is meant to be
you are meant to be

raise up, get up
raise up, get up
raise up, get up
raise up, get up
raise up, get up
raise up, get up
