A voice that's calling (Can you see it?) A light that's shining bright Here in your eyes (Can you hear it?) As loud as thunder (Can you feel it?) As certain as the sun We'll rise And we will sing together The strength in our voices Will turn all the pages They'll hear us calling Our spirits unbroken We'll walk to the sound of our dreams Pick up the pieces left behind We'll build a ship for us to sail through the tides The future's on our side (Can you hear it?) A voice that's calling (Can you see it?) A light that's shining bright Here in your eyes (Can you hear it?) As loud as thunder (Can you feel it?) As certain as the sun We'll rise And we will sing together The strength in our voices Will turn all the pages They'll hear us calling Louder than a lion We'll walk to the sound of our dreams Follow the voice that's inside Feel your spirits come back to life We will sing together The strength in our voices Will turn all the pages They'll hear us calling Louder than a lion We'll walk to the sound of our dreams Don't you give up (Never) I'll lift you up (Higher) Like the moon and the stars We'll rise with our spirits anew Don't you give up (Never) I'll lift you up (Higher) Like the moon and the stars We'll rise with our spirits anew Dengan semangat baru We'll rise
