About Rise

"Rise" is a song by English singer Gabrielle. It was written by Gabrielle, Ollie Dagois and Ferdy Unger-Hamilton and produced by Jonny Dollar for her same-titled third studio album (1999). Notable for a rare authorised use of a Bob Dylan sample, it takes extensively from his 1973-song "Knockin' on Heaven's Door", which was produced for the soundtrack of Sam Peckinpah's western drama film Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (1973). Dylan liked "Rise" so much that he allowed Gabrielle to use the sample for free, while receiving a co-writer credit for providing the song's chord progression and vocal sample. Released as the second single from the album, the song reached number one on the UK Singles Chart for two weeks in January 2000, becoming her second chart-topper. "Rise" also reached number one in Ireland and charted highly in Austria, Iceland, Norway and New Zealand, where it reached number two in April and May 2000 and ended the year as the country's third best-selling single.

I know that it's over 
But I can't believe we're through 
They say that time is a healer 
And I'm better without you 
It's gonna take time, I know 
But I'll get over over you 

Look at my life 
Look at my heart 
I have seen them fall apart 
Now I'm ready to rise again 
Just look at my hopes
Look at my dreams 
I'm building bridges from these scenes 
Now I'm ready to rise again 

Caught up in my thinking, yeah 
Like a prisoner in my mind 
You pose so many questions 
But the truth was hard to find 
I better think twice, I know 
That I'll get over you

Look at my life 
Look at my heart 
I have seen them fall apart 
Now I'm ready to rise again 
Just look at my hopes 
Look at my dreams 
I'm building bridges from these scenes 
Now I'm ready to rise again 

Much time has passed between us 
Do you still think of me at all 
My world of broken promises 
You won't catch me when I fall
 
Look at my life 
Look at my heart 
I have seen them fall apart 
Now I'm ready to rise again 
Just look at my hopes 
Look at my dreams 
I'm building bridges from these scenes 
Now I'm ready to rise again

Look at my life 
Yes, I'm gonna rise
Gonna make it alright
I'm gonna be who I wanna be, yeah baby
I'm gonna make it alright
I'm gonna make it alright
