  • In the morning wake me up
    And tell me everything
    So I can understand your world
    And you can understand my dream
    Yeah I could be anywhere
    And you could be there with me
    But I just want to be a ghost
    And see everything

    I don't want it to be the way they want it

    This town, this night, this crowd
    Come on put them up, let me hear it loud
    This town, this city, this crowd
    Stand up on your feet put your worry down

    And everyone of you all around
    Come on yall let's take this town
    Let's take this town

    It's better that we keep this close
    Keep you close to me
    Walking under every sky
    Over every sea
    You can be my modern girl
    And I can be the one you found
    If we're taking on the world today
    I know we got to leave this town

    I don't want it to be the way they want it

    This town, this night, this crowd
    Come on put them up, let me hear it loud
    This town, this city, this crowd
    Stand up on your feet put your worry down

    And everyone of you all around
    Come on yall let's take this town
    Let's take this town

    Come on yall let's take this town
    Come on yall let's take it down
    On our own let's get away
    Nothing more left here to see
    Come on love make it perfect
    More and more I will believe
    Like a child I must believe
    Come on yall make it worth it

    This town, this night, this crowd
    Come on put them up, let me hear it loud
    This town, this city, this crowd
    Stand up on your feet put your worry down

    And everyone of you all around
    Come on yall let's take it
    Everyone of you in this crowd
    Come on yall let's take this town

    This town, this night, this crowd
    Come on put them up, let's take this town
    This town, this city, this crowd
    We're taking on the world today
    Come on put them up, and every one of you all around
    We can be anyway, take this town
    Come on put them up, we're taking on the world today
    Take this town, we could be anywhere Writer/s: IAN MOSLEY, MARK KELLY, PETER TREWAVAS, STEVE HOGARTH, STEVE ROTHERY
