  • I turn the music up, I got my records on
    I shut the world outside until the lights come on
    Maybe the streets alight, maybe the trees are gone
    I feel my heart start beating to my favourite song

    And all the kids they dance, all the kids all night
    Until Monday morning feels another life
    I turn the music up
    I'm on a roll this time
    And heaven is in sight

    I turn the music up, I got my records on
    From underneath the rubble sing a rebel song
    Don't want to see another generation drop
    I'd rather be a comma than a full stop

    Maybe I'm in the black, maybe I'm on my knees
    Maybe I'm in the gap between the two trapezes
    But my heart is beating and my pulses start
    Cathedrals in my heart

    As we saw ohh, this light I swear you, emerge blinking into
    To tell me it's alright
    As we soar walls, every siren is a symphony
    And every tear's a waterfall
    Is a waterfall
    Is a waterfall
    Is a is a waterfall
    Every tear
    Is a waterfall

    So you can hurt, hurt me bad
    But still I'll raise the flag

    It was a wa-wa wa-wa wa-aterfall
    A wa-wa wa-wa wa-aterfall

    Every tear
    Every tear
    Every teardrop is a waterfall

    Every tear
    Every tear
    Every teardrop is a waterfall

    Every tear
    Every tear
