Lyrics:
VERSE 1
She was walking in the street
Looked up and noticed
He was nameless
He was homeless
She asked him his name and
Told him what hers was
He gave her a story
About life
With a glint in his eye
And a corner of a smile
One conversation
A simple moment
The things that change us
If we notice
When we look up sometimes

B SECTION
They said I would never make it
But I was built to break the mold
The only dream that I been chasing
Is my own

HOOK
So I sing a song for the hustlers
Trading at the bus stop
Single mothers
Waiting on a check to come
Young teachers
Student doctors
Sons on the front line
Knowing they don’t get to run
This goes out to the Underdog
Keep on keeping at what you love
You’ll find that someday soon enough
You will rise up rise up yeah

VERSE 2
She’s riding in a taxi
Back to the kitchen
Talking to the driver
‘Bout his wife and his
Children
On the run from a country
Where they put you in
Prison
For being a woman
And speaking your mind
She looked in his eyes
In the mirror and he smiled
One conversation
A single moment
The things that change us
If we notice
When we look up
Sometimes

B SECTION
They said I would never make it
But I was built to break the mold
The only dream that I been chasing
Is my own

HOOK
So I sing a song for the hustlers
Trading at the bus stop
Single mothers
Waiting on a check to come
Young teachers
Student doctors
Sons on the front line
Knowing they don’t get to run
This goes out to the Underdog
Keep on keeping at what you love
You’ll find that someday soon enough
You will rise up rise up yeah

BREAK
Everybody Rise Up
You better Rise Up

HOOK
So I sing a song for the hustlers
Trading at the bus stop
Single mothers
Waiting on a check to come
Young teachers
Student doctors
Sons on the front line
Knowing they don’t get to run
This goes out to the Underdog
Keep on keeping at what you love
You’ll find that someday soon enough
You will rise up rise up yeah

  3. Dear Alicia Keys, I’ve never had a song speak to me as much as this song has. I am a single mother, and I’ve been working so hard to make a better life for me and my daughter. Things keep getting in the way and I feel like giving up sometimes, but, I know I need to keep going for my little girl. I just wanted to thank you for this song, and for touching my heart. #aliciakeys

  4. This song gave me chills.. I truly miss clean, true, authentic music.
    This is the kind of music that needs to be a " Hit"
