Rise
by Building 429



 

Itís written in your eyes
I can see the face you hide
Itís getting harder every night
To want to be alive
Thinking thoughts inside your mind
Of leaving us all behind
Leaving us all behind

But youíre not quite home yet
Youíre not quite through
Itís not your time
Heís got a plan for you
Thereís still a plan for you
Itís everywhere you hide
ĎCause the shadows follow you
You think you canít escape
But youíre running anyway
And youíre thoughts all break my heart
Thereís a chapter left to write
Thereís a chapter left to write

Wonít you run, fly open up your lungs tonight, breathe freedom for the first time in your life
Wonít you run, fly, open up your lungs tonight, breathe freedom for the first time in your life

written by Mike Anderson, Scotty Beshears, Jesse Garcia, Jason Roy

Behind the Song:
"We received an e-mail around January 2005 from a young man that had dealt with suicide. His letter told us about how he had decided to kill himself Ė he had written the note and everything was planned, except that his mother had dropped our CD on his dresser that day. At first he thought, ďGreat, another Christian CD.Ē But then he decided to listen. For some reason our CD changed his mind and caused him to rethink the plan that he had for his life. This letter helped us recognize the power that we had to speak into peopleís lives, which was something we just didnít understand. Secondly, it reminded us that even the Church is full of people who are considering whether life is worthwhile or not. ďHomeĒ was written to remind our audience and ourselves that, while we arenít the stars in this epic masterpiece, we are all players that He wants so badly to be involved in His redemption plan. Amazing, isnít it? That He doesnít need us at all, but He wants us to know Him so much that Heíd send His son to die for us. Thatís something to live for." - Jason Roy (Building 429)
