When you see the road ahead
                    Em                   D
that you've been down before
                        C                 G
When you're half way to no where
               Em                     D
and you can't pay the toll

You're hanging onto mercy
withered on the vine
With your feet on the ground, your head in the clouds
and your heart on the line

Open up your eyes

You've got to rise up (rise up)

when this life has got you down

You've got to look up (look up)
                   Em 	                   D
when you search & nothings found
          C                                 G                   Em                             D
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the love that's here and now
                   C  C    G G 
It's coming down

So rise up now.

Verse 2

When your told that day is over  (IV > I)
long after the sun goes down (vi > V)
And your mind it keeps on racing  (IV > I)

Em	 	        D
Cause heaven is coming this way. x2
