The Lyrics

All those chances just keep passing by
You can’t measure up if they won’t let you try
Now it’s your time to shine 

Turn up the radio, drown out that voice, there’s a sweeter song
Turn it up loud, hold your head up proud this is your new song 

One more closing door, one step behind
If they won’t lift you up just look inside—you’ll find
That it’s your time to shine 

Turn up the radio, drown out that voice, there’s a sweeter song
Turn it up loud, hold your head up proud this is your new song 

Rise up and sing, show them what you’re made of
Rise up, you’ll see, there’s nothing to be afraid of
Lift your voice and sing
Sing your song for me 

When that voice inside is full of doubt
You can choose to listen or just tune it out 

Turn up the radio, drown out that voice, there’s a sweeter song
Turn it up loud, hold your head up proud this is your new song 

Rise up and sing, show them what you’re made of
Rise up, you’ll see, there’s nothing to be afraid of
Lift your voice and sing
Sing your song for me
