  • When we first came here
    We were cold and we were clear
    With no colors on our skin
    We were light and paper-thin

    And when we first came here
    We were cold and we were clear
    With no colors on our skin
    'Till you let the spectrum in

    Say my name
    And every color illuminates
    We are shining
    And we will never be afraid again

    Say my name
    And every color illuminates
    We are shining
    And we will never be afraid again

    Say my name
    And every color illuminates
    We are shining
    And we will never be afraid again

    And when we come for you
    We dressed up all in blue
    With the ocean in our arms
    Kissing eyes and kissing palms

    When it's time to pray
    We dressed up all in gray
    With metal on our tongues
    And silver in our lungs

    Say my name
    And every color illuminates
    We are shining
    And we'll never be afraid again

    Say my name
    And every color illuminates
    We are shining
    And we'll never be afraid again

    Say my name
    And every color illuminates
    We are shining
    And we'll never be afraid again

    And when we come back we'll be dressed in black
    And you'll scream our names aloud
    And we won't eat and we won't sleep
    We'll drag bodies from their graves

    So say my name
    And every color illuminates
    And we are shining
    And we'll never be afraid again
    Say my name
    As every color illuminates

    Say my name
    And every color illuminates
    We are shining
    And we'll never be afraid again

    Say my name
    And every color illuminates
    We are shining
    And we'll never be afraid again

    Say my name
    We are shining
    Say my name
    Say my name
    And we will never be afraid again Writer/s: Florence Leontine Mary Welch, Paul Richard Epworth
