Thrive

Fourteen years and his daddy passed away
He wants to cry but the tears won't heal his pain
Hears his father's voice so strong inside his head
Wondering if he might be better dead

When life stops, you gotta go! (GO...GO)
Don't you dare lay down and die! (NO...NO)
Just raise your eyes right to the sky! (YEAH...YEAH)
With all your might you gotta thrive!

She sees the hunger in her child's eyes
He left so suddenly, on him they did rely
Every passing second, hope it fades away
She doesn't know how they'll survive another day

When life stops, you gotta go! (GO...GO)
Don't you dare lay down and die! (NO...NO)
Just raise your eyes right to the sky! (YEAH...YEAH)
With all your might you gotta thrive!

Hold your head up high, and you'll survive
The clouds will fade away and you will thrive
Oh the sun will shine, and then you'll be alive
With all your might you gotta THRIVE!

I left my home that day, feeling broken down
That era of my life was surely over now
Then one day outta the blue, oh I got the call
That told me all my dreams would come true after all

When life stops, you gotta go! (GO...GO)
Don't you dare lay down and die! (NO...NO)
Just raise your eyes right to the sky! (YEAH...YEAH)
With all your might you gotta thrive!

Hold your head up high, and you'll survive
The clouds will fade away and you will thrive
Oh the sun will shine, and then you'll be alive
With all your might you gotta THRIVE!
