Lyrics

Raise Your Hand

Back to all the words

Sometimes it’s hard
To catch your breath
Your chest gets tight
Oh, what a mess
You can’t see
Any good reason
You feel so foolish
This is happening again
Everything is spinning
Moving so fast
You don’t know how long
You can last

It’s OK
I know things are tough
It’s OK
You feel like you’re not enough
You want to scream
It won’t do any good
It doesn’t matter
That’s understood
So stand up
And raise your hand
And let us know
You’re here
I’m right here too

They said, time is a gift
Spread your wings and fly
But you just want to lay in a heap
Huddled up to cry
They said, it won’t kill you
It will surely make you stronger
But you don’t know 
If you can go on much longer
They said, it’s a shame
You should do great things
But all you can think of 
Is the fear tomorrow brings

It’s OK
I know things are tough
It’s OK
You feel like you’re not enough
You want to scream
But it won’t do any good
It doesn’t matter
That’s understood
So stand up
And raise your hand
And let us know
You’re here
I’m right here too

I’m screaming into the abyss
It seems no one hears
I’m calling out for help
But nobody cares
I’m giving up
I’m giving up again
I just can’t
Go on

It’s OK
I know things are tough
It’s OK
I feel like I’m not enough
I want to scream
But it won’t do any good
It doesn’t matter
That’s understood
So I’ll stand up
And raise my hand
And let you know
I’m here
We’re right here too
