This road is anything but simple,
Twisted like a riddle, I've seen High and I've seen low.
So loud, the voices of all my doubts,
Are telling me to give up, pack up and leave town.
Even so I had to believe, Impossible means nothing to me,

So can you lift me up?
And turn the ashes into flames,
Cause I have overcome more than words will ever say,
And I've been given hope that there's a light on up the hall,
And that a day will come when the fight is won,
And I think that day has just begun.

Somewhere, yeah everybody starts there,
Your counting on a small prayer, lost in a nightmare.
But I'm here, and suddenly it's so clear,
The struggle through the long years,
It's taught me to outrun my fears.
And everything that's worth having,
Comes with trials worth withstanding.

So can you lift me up?
And turn the ashes into flames,
Cause I have overcome more than words will ever say,
I've been given hope that there's a light on up the hall,
And that a day will come when the fight is won,
And I think that day has just begun.

Oh lift me up, Oh lift me up,
Oh lift me up, Oh lift me up,
Oh lift me up, Oh lift me up,
Oh lift me up, Oh lift me up,
Oh lift me up, Oh lift me up,
Oh lift me up, Oh lift me up,

Down and out is overrated,
I need to be elevated,
Looking up is not enough,
I would rather rise above, Oh, Oh, Oh.

So can you lift me up?
And turn the ashes into flames,
Cause I have overcome more than words will ever say,
I've been given hope that there's a light on up the hall,
And that a day will come when the fight is won,
And I think that day has just begun.
Lift me up, lift me up, lift me up.

    This probably means different things to everyone, but to me it really speaks to me because it makes me think of my road to recovery for my eating disorder. I suppose it can really be about any road to recovery.

    To me me it speaks of taking a stance against the battle going on in my mind and the demons lies that i am defeated. Life can be cruel the unfairness canbe too much for our minds to wrap around. I choose to look death in the eye and say not me, not today.

    This song is meant to mean lots of different things because everyone see's the world differently. To me this song means that no matter what even if I'm not strong enough to deal with the problem on my own right now, someday I will be.
