Artist's Notes

This song was inspired by a rendering of his attic stairs posted to Kompoz from our very own Ken (xd238), who has been struggling mightily to get his recording studio set up, and to be able to work on producing music.
The cover art is a perfect metaphor for how Ken is trying to do his music against a lot of challenges:
The shining window/mirror at the top of the stairs beckoning ..... the boxes and debris on the steps .... obstacles to reach the light ......

This song is dedicated to Ken, and others like him: people who have many challenges in life but wont give up.
The message is:


Things WILL get better .... maybe with a shaky start ... but you will find your way, and the frustration will be beaten down and your confidence will grow. This is our hope for you.


Lyrics

Raise You Up

 

Sometimes,

Its hard,

But you try,

Not to say good-bye.

Turn away,

From the pain inside,

All those plans,

That you put aside.

When life beats you down,

And youre left looking round,

Turn the dark into light,

And lose yourself in the sound.

Were here to raise you up.

 

Remember your friends,

Each side of the globe,

And theres always an end,

To the darkest of roads.

So when you feel alone,

 

Well raise you up.

 

Give everything to now,

The dawn will call out,

Beyond shadows of the night,

Though unfairness bounds.

 

Know who you are - where youve been,

The dreams youll soon see,

Your strength will guide the way,

Through the uneasy.

 

Well raise you up.

 

Keep pushing on, with all of your might,

Seize the dreams from long ago.

Never give up, never give in,

Take your hopes - and never let go.

 

Well raise you up,

Well raise you up.

 

Remember,

Youre never alone.
