Ledisi
Raise Up
[Verse 1]
I'm looking around and I see more of the same
(Yeah, more of the same, yeah)
People looking for purpose, someone to blame (Someone to blame)
As I'm on my quest for fame, every day the place is changed
(Things changed)
I stay humble trying to play the game
(Trying to play the game, I try to play the game, yeah, uh)
I figured it out, my dreams are bigger than me
(So much bigger than me, yeah)
Them taking much further than I thought it would be
(Than I thought it 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, it'll happen, you'll see, you'll see, you'll see)
Yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
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, mhm

[Verse 2]
I didn't move forward 'til I let go of the past
(Gotta let it go, yeah)
I needed my freedom, I needed it bad (I needed it bad)
If we all could just forgive (Forgive)
It's the only way to live (Live)
I have more now than I ever had
(I got more than I, I got more than I ever had, than I ever had)
There is a path and it is written for you
(It's written for you, written for you, yeah)
Take the time to find the truth (Find the truth)
What do you have to lose?
It's time for you to choose (Choose)
No one else can do it for you
(Do it for you, can't nobody do it, do it for you, uh)
[Chorus]
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 gotta know who you are)
You are meant for a purpose
What is meant for you is meant to be
(Oh yeah, yeah, yeah)
You are meant to be
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

[Bridge]
When judgment day comes, have you given your best?
Has the world been changed by the love that you left?
Forgive those who trespa**ed against you
Rise through the pain, let it go
What happened is done, it's time to live again
(Live again, live again)
Yeah (Yeah), yeah, 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
(You are meant to be)
[Chorus]
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
(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
(Know yourself)
You are meant for a purpose
(Know yourself)
What is meant for you is meant to be
You are meant to be
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

[Outro]
Raise up, get up
Raise up, get up
Raise up, get up
Raise up, get up
Raise up, get up
Raise up, get up
