Katy Perry – Rise lyrics

[Verse 1]
I won’t just survive,
Oh, you will see me thrive.
Can’t write my story,
I’m beyond the archetype
.
I won’t just conform,
No matter how you shake my core,
‘Cause my roots they run deep, oh.

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, ye of so little faith,
Don’t doubt it, don’t doubt it.
Victory is in my veins,
I know it, I know it.
And I will not negotiate,
I’ll fight it, I’ll fight it.
I will transform!

[Chorus]
When, when the fire’s at my feet again,
And the vultures all start circling,
They’re whispering, "You’re out of time”,
But still I rise.
This is no mistake, no accident,
When you think the final nail is in,
Think again,
Don’t be surprised, I will still rise.

[Verse 2]
I must stay conscious,
Through the madness and chaos.
So I call on my angels,
They say:

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, ye of so little faith,
Don’t doubt it, don’t doubt it.
Victory is in my veins,
You know it, you know it.
And you will not negotiate,
I’ll fight it, I’ll fight it.
I be transform!

[Chorus]
‘Cause when, when the fire’s at my feet again,
And the vultures all start circling,
They’re whispering, "You’re out of time”,
But still I rise.
This is no mistake, no accident,
When you think the final nail is in,
Think again,
Don’t be surprised, I will still rise.

[Outro]
Don’t doubt it, don’t doubt it,
Oh, oh, oh, oh
You know it, you know it.
Still rise,
Just fight it, just fight it.
Don’t be surprised,
I will still rise.
