James Arthur – Phoenix lyrics

Let me, let me begin
Let me begin with an I.O.U
Who I owe everything to
Lately, lately my friend
Lately, you think I'm ignoring you
But I've been trying to pull through

All of the pain,
I know you're looking down, down on me
I could have been someone
I hurt everyone
Pushed away everyone who got near, oh

Tell me, something that I don't know
I couldn't let it go
Fell on my knees
Turned my face to the rain
And that's when you heard my call
Sold me my stolen soul
Phoenix is rising, it's rising again
Oo, oo, oo
Woah, oo, oo
Woah, oo, oo

Save me, save me again
Save me the way that you did before
'Cause no one ever could have loved me more
Give me, give me the strength
Give me the strength when I need it more
Give me the reason that I'm looking for

I was a pain,
They were looking down, down on me
I could have been someone
I hurt everyone
Pushed away everyone that was here

Tell me, something that I don't know
I couldn't let it go
Fell on my knees
Turned my face to the rain
That's when you heard my call
Sold me my stolen soul
The phoenix is rising, it's rising again
Oo, oo, oo
Woah, oo, oo
Woah, oo, oo
Rising, woah, oo, oo
It's rising, woah, oo, oo
It's rising, woah, oo, oo

You took the pain
When my world caved down on me
Now I have someone
'Cause you came and you showed me the world

Tell me, something that I don't know
I couldn't let it go (I couldn't let)
Fell on my knees (on my knees)
Turned my face to the rain
That's when you heard my call
Sold me my stolen soul (you sold me my soul)
Phoenix is rising, it's rising again (phoenix is rising)

Tell me, something that I don't know
I couldn't let it go
Fell on my knees
Turned my face to the rain
That's when you heard my call
Sold me my stolen soul
Phoenix is rising
