Intro
Figure 8
New Day, new beginning
But sometimes, feels like the weight of the world is on my shoulder

Bridge
New Day
Memba when wi used to have one shirt, one pants
Woii
Know seh mi born fi great
All mi need was one try, one chance
Louis
Mind pan di choice an mi eye pan di prize

Chorus
Because afta all a di struggle we face
And afta all a wi hungry days
Drizzle wi still a survive
To rise again, rise again
Woii, yea

Even afta all a di pressure wi bare
Shadow full a faith suh wi nah nuh fear
A Jah protect our life
To rise again, rise again
Woii, yea

Verse 1
Dem neva wah mi deh yah but mi deh yah still
Hilltop pan di rock deh suh mi deh a chill
Haters nuh wah fi see dem yute yah mek a mill
Long time dem a try fi stop wi but dem neva will

Dem accuse and a charge but mi neva kill
Nuh body neva talk when mi blood a spill
Suh much innocent mi see dem have behind di grill
Nuh matta how much time dem try fi bruk wi dung, wi still a build

Still a build wi still a hold di faith, Wi hold di faith
Heavy yet wi hold di weight, Hold di weight
Haffi survive, Mi know mi great, Know mi great
No debate

Verse 2
Could yuh tell wi wants the point of view
When the yutes dem a hustle outta Mountain View
An gunshot a fire inna Harbour View
It's just a preview
Cause anuh only mosquito deh a Seaview (nuh)

Probably you should step closer an get a real view
Probe the situation give us a review
Look at the conditions that the people live through
Take a look at us and tell us can you see you

An even though yuh treat wi like a bastard
Mi certain seh wi bless, yuh can guh ask God
Dem seh wi head sick, dem seh wi pass mad
Drizzle still deh yah an a gwan trod

Chorus
Afta all a di struggle we face
And afta all a wi hungry days
Drizzle wi still a survive
To rise again, rise again
Woii, yea

Even afta all a di pressure wi bare
Shadow full a faith suh wi nah nuh fear
A Jah protect our life
To rise again, rise again
Woii, yea
