Rise Up and Sing

Posted: 9/6/2013

Written for the PS 127 Chorus, Music and Lyrics by Shanan Estreicher

The PS 127 Chorus in Queens, NY performs a song their music teacher wrote specifically for them. This song is about rising above the difficulties of life and using your voice as an instrument of change.

Lyrics

All those chances just keep passing by
You can’t measure up if they won’t let you try
Now it’s your time to shine

Turn up the radio, drown out that voice, there’s a sweeter song
Turn it up loud, hold your head up proud this is your new song

One more closing door, one step behind
If they won’t lift you up just look inside—you’ll find
That it’s your time to shine

Turn up the radio, drown out that voice, there’s a sweeter song
Turn it up loud, hold your head up proud this is your new song

Rise up and sing, show them what you’re made of
Rise up, you’ll see, there’s nothing to be afraid of
Lift your voice and sing
Sing your song for me

When that voice inside is full of doubt
You can choose to listen or just tune it out

Turn up the radio, drown out that voice, there’s a sweeter song
Turn it up loud, hold your head up proud this is your new song

Rise up and sing, show them what you’re made of
Rise up, you’ll see, there’s nothing to be afraid of
Lift your voice and sing
Sing your song for me

Rise up
