Want to sing-a-long? Well you can! Please find below the lyrics to Rise like a phoenix

Waking in the rubble
Walking over glass
Neighbours say we’re trouble
Well that time has passed

Peering from the mirror
No, that isn’t me
A stranger getting nearer
Who can this person be?

You wouldn’t know me at all today
From the fading light I fly

Rise like a phoenix
Out of the ashes, seeking rather than vengeance
Retribution, you were warned
Once I’m transformed, once I’m reborn

You know I will rise like a phoenix
But you’re my flame

Go about your business
Act as if you’re free
No one could have witnessed
What you did to me

‘Cause you wouldn’t know me today
And you have got to see to believe
From the fading light I fly

Rise like a phoenix
Out of the ashes, seeking rather than vengeance
Retribution, you were warned
Once I’m transformed, once I’m reborn

I rise up to the sky
You threw me down but I’m gonna fly

And rise like a phoenix
Out of the ashes, seeking rather than vengeance
Retribution, you were warned
Once I’m transformed, once I’m reborn

You know I will rise like a phoenix
But you’re my flame
