If I rise

If i rise
Will you be mine
And if I break now
My soul remains

To try
To try to ride home
Until your own
Until your day
Try your soul
Try your ray
In every single soul
There’s a ray

There’s light
There was night
There’s a dawn
you won’t name
There’s your soul
There’s your ray
In every single soul
There’s a ray…

If i rise
Will you be mine
I’m hope today...
