  • (Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh)
    Oh, oh, oh
    (Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh)
    Oh, oh, oh

    Lights out, lights out on every street
    It's like God turned the switch on us
    Shout out, shout out for someone to hear
    There's nobody left but the two of us

    Hold tight, hold tight to memories
    Oh my, it's so hard to let it go
    Shout out, shout out for someone to hear
    There's nobody left but the two of us

    Oh Lord, what if we could say that we made it, oh whoa
    Nothing here was broken or wasted, oh whoa
    And we were all caught in the crossfire
    And everyone was stood in the way
    They're just waiting for a change
    They're just waiting for a change

    Oh, oh, oh
    (Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh)
    Oh, oh, oh

    Dark clouds, dark clouds in every sky
    We run fast towards the light
    You said, you said that you'd get your people off
    And just like a happy life

    All those years we spent alone
    There must be life after tragedy
    Shout out, shout out for someone to hear
    But there's nothing left but the memory

    Oh Lord, what if we could say that we made it, oh whoa
    Nothing here was broken or wasted, oh whoa
    We were all caught in the crossfire
    And everyone was stood in the way
    They're just waiting for a change
    They're just waiting for a

    What if this was not our fate and we still had the time
    And what if everybody stood with arm in arm to fight together

    Oh Lord, what if we could say that we made it, oh whoa
    Nothing here was broken and wasted, oh whoa
    We were all caught in the crossfire
    And everyone was stood in the way
    They're just waiting for a change
    They're just waiting for

    Oh Lord, what if we could say that we made it, oh whoa
    Nothing here was broken or wasted, oh whoa
    We were all caught in the crossfire
    And everyone was stood in the way
    They're just waiting for a change
    They're just waiting for a change
