Nelly Furtado – Phoenix lyrics
Mother
Just lay your head down
You been burning both ends of the candle
And you're done
It's time to find your wings again
And turn your face towards the sun
Some battles can't be won

Like a phoenix
Rising from the ashes
Like a phoenix
Rising from the flame

You're gonna be alright
You're gonna be alright
You're gonna be alright again

Oh, brother
Your hands are tired
You've been holding the world up
And you're losing your grip
If you knew now what you knew then
Maybe you'd be whole again
But everyone falls down

Like a phoenix
Rising from the ashes
Like a phoenix
Rising from the flame

You're gonna be alright
You're gonna be alright
You're gonna be alright again

You build a castle in the clouds
And then the fire burned you down
But you're still standing anyway
When all you needed from the start
Was waiting there inside your heart to be born again

Like a phoenix
Like a phoenix
You're gonna be alright
You're gonna be alright
You're gonna be alright again
You're gonna be alright
You're gonna be alright
You're gonna be alright again
