Rise Up

Imagine Dragons

Rise Up Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I was hoping for an indication
I was seeking higher elevation
(Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye)

I've been shaken, waking in the night light
I've been breaking, hiding from the spotlight
(Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye)

[Pre-Chorus]
The more I stray, the less I fear
And the more I reach, the more I fade away
The darkness right in front of me
Oh, it's calling out, and I won't walk away

[Chorus]
I would always open up the door
Always looking up for higher floors
Wanna see it all give me more (rise, rise up)

I was always up for making changes
Walking down the street meeting strangers
Flipping through my life turning pages (rise, rise up)

[Verse 2]
Like a prayer that only needs a reason
Like a hunter waiting for the season
(Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye)
I was there, but I was always leaving
I've been living, but I was never breathing
(Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, aye)

[Pre-Chorus]
The more I stray, the less I fear
And the more I reach, the more I fade away
The darkness right in front of me
Oh, it's calling out, and I won't walk away

[Chorus]
I would always open up the door
Always looking up for higher floors
Wanna see it all give me more (rise, rise up)

I was always up for making changes
Walking down the street meeting strangers
Flipping through my life turning pages (rise, rise up)

[Bridge]
I'm bursting like the Fourth of July
So color me and blow me away
I'm broken in the prime of my life
So embrace it and leave me to stray

[Chorus]
I would always open up the door
Always looking up for higher floors
Wanna see it all give me more (rise, rise up)

I was always up for making changes
Walking down the street meeting strangers
Flipping through my life turning pages (rise, rise up)
I would always open up the door
Always looking up for higher floors
Want to see it all give me more (rise, rise up)

I was always up for making changes
Walking down the street meeting strangers
Flipping through my life turning pages (rise, rise up)

[Outro]
(Rise, rise up)
(Rise, rise up)

About “Rise Up”

“Rise Up” is the fifth track from Imagine Dragons' third studio album, Evolve. The song is sandwiched between two genuine and soft-spoken songs, which intensifies the powerful, strained vocals in the chorus.

In essence, the song talks about rising up to face all of your troubles, dealing with themes regarding empowerment, hope, and success.

At the end of the Evolve Summer Tour in Berlin, the song was used as a tribute to the late Mac Miller who had passed two days prior.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

  • How has the song been used in concert?

    The band dedicated this song to Mac Miller at the 2018 Lollapalooza festival in Berlin a few days after Miller was confirmed dead following a suspected drug overdose in early September, saying:

    We have lost so many great artists this year, some of which I knew personally… so many artists we have lost much too soon. Tonight, in particular, we pay homage to, we spread love, and we think of Mac Miller – another artist that we have lost much too young. We give love to his family and his friends. He was an innovator, and he will be missed, and his music will live on.
