Lyrics

THERE CAME A MAN THEY CALLED A DREAMER
BELIEVED IN LIBERTY FOR ALL
SPOKE OF LOVE THE REDEEMER
CARRIED FREEDOM IN HIS SOUL

AND WE OWE A PRAYER OF THANKS TO THOSE
WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR WHAT IS RIGHT
THE RIGHTEOUS PATH THAT THEY CHOSE
CAN GUIDE US ALL TO THE LIGHT

A LONG NIGHT OF THE SOUL
MADE ME CRY, MADE ME SING
FREED THE DREAM IN MY HEART,
LET IT FLY, LET IT RING

AIN’T THE COLOUR OF YOUR SKIN
IT’S THE COLOUR OF YOUR MIND
IT’S EVERYTHING YOU BELIEVE IN
SEEK THE TRUTH AND YOU SHALL FIND

THAT WE TOO HAVE THE POWER
TO STAND TALL, DON’T BE AFRAID
NOW IS THE TIME, NOW IS THE HOUR
TO BE STRONG TO BE SAVED

FROM THE BLOOD-STAINED STREETS OF MUMBAI
TO THE COLD STEEL MOUNTAINS OF NEW YORK
STILL WE HEAR RWANDA CRY
BUT THERE IS HOPE WHILE THERE’S TALK

6. FROM WAR-TORN GAZA DOWN TO BAGHDAD
TO THE BLAZING DESERTS OF IRAN
NAMELESS GRAVES, THE GHOSTS OF CHAD
TO THE KILLING FIELDS OF VIETNAM

7. FROM SOMALIA’S DEADLY SEAS
TO THE TEEMING STREETS OF OLD BEIJING
FROM RED SQUARE TO MY SWEET TBILISI
LET US HEAR THE BELLS OF FREEDOM RING

8. NOW WE OWE A PRAYER OF THANKS TO THOSE
WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR WHAT IS RIGHT
THE RIGHTEOUS PATH THAT THEY CHOSE
WILL GUIDE US ALL TO THE LIGHT

A LONG NIGHT OF THE SOUL
MADE ME CRY MADE ME SING
FREED THE DREAM IN MY HEART
LET IT FLY LET IT RING

9. AND NOW A FINAL PRAYER IN MEMORY
FROM DEEP WITHIN MY HEART AND SOUL
FOR THE YOUNG LIVES LOST IN GAY PARIS
WHO WILL NEVER GROW OLD… NEVER GROW
THEY WILL NEVER GROW OLD…
