(Rosanne Cash)

I don't have to carry this load alone
Someday I'll stop crying and it won't be long
My eyes to the distance, baby
My hands on the wheel
And I'm gonna rise from the ashes
That's how I feel, I feel
I'm gonna rise from the ashes

I feel inspiration when all may be lost
I claim resurrection no matter the cost
My moment of waking, darlin'
Is so close at hand
And I'm gonna rise from the ashes
I know I can, I can
I'm gonna rise from the ashes

Just give me one more moment
Just give me one night
I'll be all right
You know I will
I will

I hold onto faith inside my fear
I know someone hears me when no one is near
My heart is my compass
My soul is my guide
And I'm gonna rise from the ashes
Be alive, so alive
I'm gonna rise from the ashes
I'm gonna rise from the ashes
I'm gonna rise from the ashes
