Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

00:00:11
She was walking in the street, looked up
and noticed
He was nameless, he was homeless

00:00:17
She asked him his name and told him what
hers was
He gave her a story 'bout life

00:00:22
With a glint in his eye and a corner of a
smile
One conversation, a simple moment

00:00:27
The things that change us if we notice
When we look up sometimes

00:00:33
They said I would never make it
But I was built to break the mold

00:00:38
The only dream that I've been chasing is
my own

00:00:42
So I sing a song for the hustlers trading
at the bus stop
Single mothers waiting on a check to come

00:00:49
Young teachers, student doctors
Sons on the front line knowing they don't
get to run

00:00:55
This goes out to the Underdog
Keep on keeping at what you love

00:01:00
You'll find that someday soon enough
You will rise up, rise up, yeah

00:01:05
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

00:01:15
She's riding in a taxi back to the
kitchen
Talking to the driver 'bout his wife and
his children

00:01:20
On the run from a country where they put
you in prison
For being a woman and speaking your mind

00:01:26
She looked in his eyes in the mirror and
he smiled
One conversation, a single moment

00:01:31
The things that change us if we notice
When we look up sometimes

00:01:37
They said I would never make it
But I was built to break the mold

00:01:42
The only dream that I've been chasing is
my own

00:01:46
So I sing a song for the hustlers trading
at the bus stop
Single mothers waiting on a check to come

00:01:53
Young teachers, student doctors
Sons on the front line knowing they don't
get to run

00:01:59
This goes out to the Underdog
Keep on keeping at what you love

00:02:04
You'll find that someday soon enough
You will rise up, rise up, yeah

00:02:09
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

00:02:19
Everybody rise up
You gonna rise up, ayy

00:02:29
I sing a song for the hustlers trading at
the bus stop
Single mothers waiting on a check to come
(Single mothers)

00:02:36
Young teachers, student doctors (Yeah)
Sons on the front line knowing they don't
get to run

00:02:41
This goes out to the Underdog
Keep on keeping at what you love

00:02:46
You'll find that someday soon enough
You will rise up, rise up, yeah

00:02:52
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh...

She's just a girl

and she's on fire

Hotter than a fantasy,

lonely like a highway
