  • And the fishermen came back across the water
    And the people started running in the park
    And the city stopped, as I held you in my arms
    We could hear the sound of sirens all around us
    And the scent of burning oil was in the air
    And the music played
    And it felt so good to hear

    This is the life we've been given
    So open your mind and start living
    We can play a part if we only start believing

    There's a stranger on the hill and he is speaking
    As the tear from every cloud begin to fall
    For one moment then, we understood it all

    Everyone, everyone, can you hear the soldiers coming
    Everyone, everyone, every man and every women
    We all fall, in the end we're just miracles of matter
    So come on, let me love you

    This is the life we've been given
    So open your mind and start living
    We can play a part if we only start believing
    This is the life we've been given
    So open your heart and start loving
    We can make a start if we only learn to listen

    Then the crowd began to head for the horizon
    A million people walking back to work
    But you and me, we just lay down in the garden
    Yeah you and me, we just lay down in the garden

    This is the life we've been given
    So open your heart and start loving
    We can make a start if we only learn to listen

    You and me, we just lay down in the garden
    Yeah, the garden Writer/s: GARY BARLOW, HOWARD DONALD, JASON ORANGE, MARK OWEN
