O' Cealleigh — Rise Back Up lyrics

How can someone feeling sad be so strong?
On your knees and crying but born to carry on

How can someone so happy feel so alone?
Day to day without anyone of their own

You can't have dark without light
Get it wrong then make it right
Life can't grow without love
Repent In Hell and rise above

How can people confused be so clear?
Knowing things with clarity
Common sense so dear

Why does someone timid never run away?
Full to brim with confidence fear kept at bay

You can't have dark without light
Get it wrong then make it right
Life can't grow without love
Repent In Hell and rise above

How can people who are poor feel rich inside?
With their friends and family's love spread far and wide

Then you see a rich man locked up and alone
Isolated and cut off a prisoner in his home

You can't have dark without light
Get it wrong then make it right
Life can't grow without love
Repent In Hell and rise above

What is weak? What is long?
What is gentle tough or strong?
We live in contradictions, circumstance
Be yourself make a stand
