[Verse 1] :
Dm                          C     Dm
   I am a nation, I am a million faces 
                                    Dm
Formed together, made for elevation
                          C
I am a soldier, I won't surrender
Dm
Faith is like a fire that never burns to embers
Dm
(Who's gonna stand up, who's gonna fight?)
     Bb
The voice of the unheard
Dm
(Who's gonna break these chains and lies?)
Bb
Love is the answer
D
I gotta speak it, believe it, that's how I feel inside
Dm                                Bb
I, I, can't, can't sit here quiet

[Pre Chorus] :
                                         C
You can take my heart, you can take my breath
                          Am
When you pry it from my cold, dead chest

[Chorus] :
Dm              Bb
This is how we rise up
Gm                      C
Heavy as a hurricane, louder than a freight train
Dm              Bb
This is how we rise up
Gm                        C
Heart is beating faster, feels like thunder
Dm              Bb
Magic, static, call me a fanatic
F                 C
It's our world, they can never have it
Dm               Bb
This is how we rise up
Gm                   Am
  It's our resistance, you can't resist us

  Hey can you hear me? Hey, are you listening?
Dm
Sleeping in the shadows, could be making history
Dm                                   C
Walk through the fire, walk on the water
Dm                                              Bb
Used to be a slave, but now you are a conqueror

[Pre Chorus] :
                                           C
They can take my heart, they can take my breath
                         Am
When they pry it from my cold, dead chest

This is how we rise up

Heavy as a hurricane, louder than a freight train
Dm              Bb
This is how we rise up
Gm                        C
Heart is beating faster, feels like thunder
Dm              Bb
Magic, static, call me a fanatic

It's our world, they can never have it
