Another Pretty English Song to Practice English with

The name of this song is "The Sun Is Rising" and is by the American singer-songwriter Britt Nicole. This song appears in the comedy "The Other Woman" which is in movie theaters across The United States right now. If you haven't seen this movie yet, then I HIGHLY SUGGEST that you see it when it is released in your country. Oh my God! It is soooooooo hilarious! I actually feel like going to see it a second time in the theaters. Hehehehe Defintely a must-buy-on-DVD movie!!! :)

 

Anyhow, the lyrics "the sun is rising" and the imagery that it invokes is an inspirational one. In English, we consider night and darkness to be times of pain, depression, evil, etc. and the sun rising or light as being the period in life when things get better, you get over an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, etc., your heart calms down, your hope in the world is restored, etc.

 

In the lyrics below, I have placed angle brackets << and >> around words in English which are optional and have been left out for the song. I hope this makes it easier for non-native English speakers to understand the lyrics. :)

I will try to make this available for all of you in China and other points on the globe that block YouTube too. :)

 

The Sun Is Rising by Britt Nicole

 

When life has cut too deep and left you hurting
<<when>> The future you had hoped for is now burning
And <<when>> the dreams you held so tight lost their meaning
And <<when>> you don't if you'll ever find the healing

You're gonna make it!
You're gonna make it!
And the night can only last for so long.

 

Whatever you're facing,
If your heart is breaking,
There's a promise for the ones who just hold on.
Lift up your eyes and see
<<that>> The sun is rising!

 

The sun is rising!

 

The sun is rising!

 

The sun is rising!

 

Every high and every low you're gonna go through,
You don't have to be afraid I am with you!
In the moments you're so weak you feel like stopping,
Let the hope you have light the road you're walking!

 

You're gonna make it!
You're gonna make it!
The night can only last for so long!

 

Whatever you're facing,
If your heart is breaking,
There's a promise for the ones who just hold on.
Lift up your eyes and see
<<that>> The sun is rising!

 

Even when you can't imagine how...
How you're ever gonna find your way out,
Even when you're drowning in your doubt,
Just look beyond the clouds!

 

The sun is rising!

 

The sun is rising!

 

Just look beyond the clouds!

 

The sun is rising!

 

The sun is rising!

 

Whatever you're facing,
If your heart is breaking,
There's a promise for the ones who just hold on.
Lift up your eyes and see
<<that>> The sun is rising!

 

The sun is rising!

 

The sun is rising!

 

Yeah....

 

The sun is rising!

 

Whooooo... Yeah....

 

The sun is rising!

 

Even when you can't imagine how...
The sun is rising!
How you're ever gonna find your way out
The sun is rising!
Even when you're drowning in your doubt,
Just look beyond the clouds!

 

The sun is rising!

 

Even when you can't imagine how...
The sun is rising!
How you're ever gonna find your way out,
The sun is rising!
Even when you're drowning in your doubt,
Just look beyond the clouds!
