Lyrics

My heart's been aching for my hometown
Amid these strange and lonely days
It might not look like I remember
But i know it always feels the same

The rain might be pouring down
but it won't sink this town
It's just gonna wash the doubt away

'Cause we're gonna rise up
We're coming back strong
yeah, we're gonna rise up
and it won't be long
Until we walk these streets, and hear those bells
Ringing like before the silence fell,
The sky will clear and we'll sing this song
Like we sang it once before,
cause we're coming back strong

Driving through the heart of downtown
The cross of Ludington and James
I passed the river and the clock tower
they say that it's seen better days

But it feels like coming home
To a place I've always known
and that's never gonna change

'Cause were gonna rise up
We're coming back strong
Were gonna rise up
It won't be long
Until we walk these streets, and hear those bells
Ringing like before the silence fell,
And the sky will clear and we'll sing this song
Like we sang it once before,
cause we're coming back strong

'Cause were gonna rise up
We're coming back strong
Were gonna rise up
It won't be long
Because nothing's gonna keep us down
Not this city, not this town
The sky will clear and it won't be long
Because we're gonna rise up, we're coming back strong
