Chosen as a song to represent "Boston Strong" by WERS College Radio, "Rising Up" is upbeat and lives where Marley meets Folk.
The message is all heart.
The lyrics describe the gift found in whatever demands all you have to give, is always more strength.

Powerful message that self-belief and community support will always turn "can't do" into "can do." We all rise up best, together!

The finger style/strum acoustic flies with mastery. Harmonies are tight and strong. Lyrics are wonderful, uplifting, and sung with conviction.

Lyrics

Halfway back to where I started,
Halfway down that worn out path.
Half a mind don’t always make it,
Halfway home and fading fast.

Thrown away those broken pieces
keeping me, weighed down.
Getting mind and soul to face that,
half a heart could, never make it, better be/

rising rising rising, rising up
rising rising rising, rising up
rising rising rising, rising up strong.

Every day a million choices, every choice another chance.
Bringing all I have to face that, at this point I have to make it.

Better be
rising rising rising, rising up
rising rising rising, rising up
rising rising rising, rising up strong.

If I go it alone, strong and on my own
Half a lie, half a chance, halfway back again but fading fast.---(instrumental)

I got to be…
rising rising rising, rising up
rising rising rising, rising up
rising rising rising, rising up strong.
If I go it alone, strong and on my own, half a lie; half a chance
halfway back again but fading way too fast.

Every day a million choices, every choice another chance
Got to raise a host of voices, so we all can share the dance.

I got to be rising, you want to be rising, we need to be rising, rising up
rising, …rising up now!
