Jonas Blue – Rise lyrics
[Verse 1: Jack & Jack]
We’re gonna ri-ri-ri-ri-rise ’til we fall
This time we got no no no no future at all
They wanna ke-ke-keep us down but they can’t hold us down …
[Verse 1: Jack & Jack]
We’re gonna ri-ri-ri-ri-rise ’til we fall
This time we got no no no no future at all
They wanna ke-ke-keep us down but they can’t hold us down …
My bitch drive a all white Range
Couldn’t hit it if you nigga’s had aim
Lames can’t call and you a lame
You had it then you lost it, hall of shame
I can …
Are you sitting at home, all alone, trying to fall asleep?
Are you staring a hole through your phone, praying that it rings?
Are you watching a movie that you’ve seen a …
Uhh, yehhh
Trapped in the middle of a stampede ?
Can you catch the beggining of a riot ???
I was so polite and quiet
Been fighting my thirst of violence
So what would you …

She is touching my hand…!
She is touching my hand…!
She is touching MY-
Touching MY-
Touching my hand!
She is touching my hand!
I do not understand!
What’s the reason SHE
Seems to BE
Touching my hand?
Maybe this …
No one was crying
They simply got a little something in their eye
No one was lonely
They just could not get hold of anybody^{1}
Over the summer, a lot changed
And they all changed to keep up with it^{2}
Too complicated
Too complex to talk to anybody^{3}
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Rolling shadow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Fallen arrow)^{4}
All this is sky light^{5}
Forget that it’s there but it’s there, no doubt about it
Take a photo of it, come back years on^{6}
And wonder why you took it
Thousands of people
Tight lines and hopes the weather stays the weekend^{7}
Clouds and rain
And no one cares ’til they’ve got the marks to prove it^{8}
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Rolling shadow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Fallen arrow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Rolling shadow)^{9}
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Fallen arrow)
(Rolling shadows, fallen arrows)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Rolling shadow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Fallen arrow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Rolling shadow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Fallen arrow)^{10}
The Maccabees, an indie rock band from London, introduce “Marks To Prove It” describing how people are not actually in situations they seem to be in.
These lines talk of how people changed in personality over the course of a summer.
Those who were once simple people are now quite complicated, according to The Maccabees.
These lines describe how people have chosen to enjoy themselves and to have a memory of what they did.
This line means that what these people are doing is just for formality.
These lines describe how people don’t pay mind to how their lives are or aren’t changing.
Tight lines refer to something extremely difficult to balance, presumably the hardships of life.
These lines describe how people enjoy themselves during summer without minding of the situations around them.
“Marks to prove it” refers to having a memory of an event, and in this case, of what takes place during summer.
This song encourages people to always put aside their problems and stress to enjoy themselves and make memories for the future.
