Phoenix rising, phoenix rising,
The phoenix rising early in the morning;
Phoenix rising, phoenix rising,
Phoenix rising early in the morning.

Everyday when I wake up
I can't believe I'm still alive,
After all that I put myself through
it makes me wonder why;
But I'm willing to forgive myself
and give something new a try,
'Cause I still like to have my fun
and I love to be surprised.

Phoenix rising, phoenix rising,
Phoenix rising early in the morning.

All the things that I did wrong
I'm now trying to do right,
Like giving back to others
instead of taking all the time;
I'm putting back together
all the things I tore apart,
I even convinced my foolish pride
to listen to my heart.

Phoenix rising, phoenix rising,
Phoenix rising early in the morning.

I'm taking care of business
without getting in my own way,
Things I thought were lost forever
are coming back again;
Like those who tried to warn me
and I made sure I drove away,
I guess I'm coming full circle
and I keep arriving everyday.

Phoenix rising, phoenix rising,
Phoenix rising early in the morning;
Phoenix rising, phoenix rising,
Phoenix rising early in the morning.

Now everyday when I wake up
it feels pretty good to be alive,
For the things that I am doing
are giving me some peace of mind;
I'm making better choices,
I'm just enjoying the ride,
I'm lifting up out of the ashes
just like the phoenix on the rise.

The phoenix rising, the phoenix rising,
The phoenix rising early in the morning;
The phoenix rising, the phoenix rising,
The phoenix rising early in the morning.

Way hey, up she's rising, way hey, up she's rising,
Way hey, up she's rising early in the morning;
Way hey, up she's rising, way hey, up she's rising,
Way hey, up she's rising early in the morning.

Way hey, up she's rising, way hey, up she's rising,
Way hey, up she's rising early in the morning;
Way hey, up she's rising, way hey, up she's rising,
Way hey, up she's rising early in the morning.

Way hey, up she's rising, way hey, up she's rising,
Way hey, up she's rising early in the morning.

From Wikipedia:
Phoenix - mythical bird with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again.
