Lyrics

Rise Above Words/Music: Janet D. Whiteway

Why do we write these songs of love, when we know the world is full of
Broken hearts and lonely dreamers, empty souls and hungry schemers?
Why do we write these songs of hope, when we see the world around us,
Faltering in sadness, seemingly endless madness?

We write these songs of love, because they rise above
All the meaningless endeavours of our ordinary lives.
We write these songs of hope, to make our voices heard.
Telling us to be part of the love, part of the love and Rise Above

Why do we write these songs of peace, when we feel the wars around us?
Battered women, broken children, angry words and guns that kill them.
When will hate end, how can a heart mend?

We write these songs of love, because they rise above
All the meaningless endeavours of our ordinary lives.
We write these songs of hope, to make our voices heard.
Telling us to be part of the love, part of the love and Rise Above
