And you said rise above
Open your eyes up
And you said rise above
But I can’t, I can’t

How long will it take
Before these feelings go away
How much longer do I wait
And are there any real answers anyway

Too heavy, the silence in a crowded room
Louder than the loudest tune
I hang on every word

And you said rise above
Open your eyes up
And you said rise above
But I can’t, I can’t

I miss you in everything
I was too fast traveling to take you in
I know silence is no crime
Just wish I could hear you fill it up one more time

Yes, I know what you say to me
Exactly what you say to me
I still hang on every word

And you said rise above
Open your eyes up
And you said rise above
Yourself

In a time a treason
Is there time for trust
When there’s no them
Only us
Is there time for reason
Has your heart had enough
Is it time to let go
And rise above

And you said rise above
Open your eyes to love
And you said rise above
Yourself

    My InterpretationTwo lovers drifted apart. The man was preoccupied with other endeavors, and neglected his love. In his absence, she found love elsewhere. He still loves her. He tries to forget her. He misses her desperately. He regrets not appreciating her while he had her. He tries to forgive her for her betrayal, realizing he has hurt her too. "Is there time for reason? Has your heart had enough? Is it time to let go and rise above?"Guided by reason, not emotions, not ego, he can understand the dance they played and why it turned out the way it did. With this knowledge he has a new understanding or enlightenment to see the situation for what it is and move on...

    Basically, rise above your own ego to better understand and love others.
    Often not an easy thing to do.
