"Audrey, Start The Revolution!" as written by and Steven Arnold (16579) Joseph Milligan (16580)....
Maybe tonight we?ll get back together
Sound the alarms and break all the levers
These streets are ours, our anthem rings
You'd know the truth if these walls could sing

Immature youth, sling down those signs
Gather the masses, friends of mine
I've got your back if you've got my hand
This isn't over, it just began

If this isn't love
(If this isn't love)
This is the closest I've ever been
Do you think we have a chance?
Tonight at streetlights, sing on Audrey's song

If this isn't love
(If this isn't love)
This is the closest I've ever been
Do you think we have a chance?
Tonight at streetlights, sing on Audrey's song

Remind your parents, we're tomorrow
Lead with morals and we?ll follow
When they wake up they'll see
That youth fades and glory days deceive

What are you waiting for? let's move on this
Time is of essence like your kiss
So say you're in
With cards down and guns drawn, this is it

If this isn't love
(If this isn't love)
This is the closest I've ever been
Do you think we have a chance?
Tonight at streetlights, sing on Audrey's song.

If this isn't love
(If this isn't love)
This is the closest I've ever been
Do you think we have a chance?
Tonight at streetlights, sing on Audrey's song

But now it stops at this
We could take it all if only we were rich
You can be what you can conceive
Read letters, kill your disbelief

We all make mistakes sometimes
We all fail, but we stand tonight
Look past them and move on
We're all here, you're not the only one

If this isn't love
(If this isn't love)
This is the closest I've ever been
Do you think we have a chance?
Tonight at streetlights, sing on Audrey's song

If this isn't love
(If this isn't love)
This is the closest I've ever been
Do you think we have a chance?
Tonight at streetlights, sing on Audrey's song

If this isn't love
(If this isn't love)
This is the closest I've ever been
Do you think we have a chance?
Tonight at streetlights, sing on Audrey's song

If this isn't love
(If this isn't love)
This is the closest I've ever been
Do you think we have a chance?
Tonight at streetlights, sing on Audrey's song

    General CommentI may be totally out with this, but when I listen to it, it sounds like a rally call to young Christians out there to get their act together and pro-actively shine like lights in todays world.

    "Our anthem rings, You'd know the truth if these walls could sing" - talking about the Gospel here? and rocks crying out when we dont? (Luke 19:40)

    "Amateur youth, sling down those signs,
    Gather the masses, friends of mine,
    I've got your back if you've got my hand,
    This isn't over, it just began" - feels to me like he's saying like were just young and we're amateurs but lets get together, all of us, and lets go cos its just begun, we're in it together and we need as many people as we can

    "Remind your parents we're tomorrow
    Lead with morals and we'll follow" - we're the future, and we got lead with a good example, Christ's example

    "What are you waiting for?"
    "Time is of essence"
    "This is it"
    - all these speak of the urgency to get out there in the world and show Christ to our friends so they don't miss out

    "We could take it all, if only we would risk,
    You can be what you can conceive,
    Red letters kill your disbelief" - red letters perhaps a reference to Red Letter Bibles, saying be encouraged and strengthened by Jesus' words and dont doubt what He can do thru us


    "We all make mistakes sometimes
    We all have failed where we stand tonight
    Look past, learn, and move on
    We're all here
    You're not the only one" - saying once again we're in it together, we all get our walk with Christ wrong, but get up, learn and move on when we fall down

    i'm not sure how Audrey fits into all of this but meh.. :)

    General Comment'Amateur youth, sling down those signs

    'We all fail, but we stand tonight'

    These lyrics make me think of the time just before plunging into a battle (not with guns, but with words and the truth) beside his love (possibly whoever Audrey is). It sounds like a romance blossoming just as the revolution is about to begin, with the youth fighting for what they believe. I wonder why it's always the youth, or the students, that start revolutions. Always so idealistic and brave, fighting for a better world. *shrug*

    I'm not entirely sure why, but that's the impression I got.

    General Commentgreat song. anberlin's new album rocks hard. their first one was really good, but this one might even be better. this is definately my personal favorite song on the cd, although "a day late" is a close, close second. Great sogn about a a guy who needs a girl to take a chance. Seems its always that way with us guys, we're always ready to dive in head first and the girl is merely tip toeing into it. tell her to take a chance, take a leap of faith and you'll be right there to catch her.

    God Bless.

    General CommentI love this song.
    It always makes me wanna dance.

    I agree that it's about a guy jsut wanting the girl to take a chance on him & jsut go all in for him.

    "So say you’re in
    With cards down and guns drawn; this is it! "
    I love that part

    General CommentAny connection to the Moulin Rouge? I could be pulling crap outta air here-- but the original writer of their play "Spectacular spectacular" was the argentinian named Audrey. then Christian took over writing and assumed the title "Voice of the revolution". Sounds alot like what could intertwine the lyrical base of the chorus and verses... they are different, but blend together. Alot like Audreys song in the movie "El tango de roxanne".

    General CommentWow. Now that you mention that connection to Moulin Rouge, it does make sense. I wonder. I guess we'll never know.

    General CommentI never thought about the moulin rouge connection, that's really cool! This song is so awesome, The first time I listented to it, it seemed almost like the chorus didn't fit, because the first two verses almost make me think of a riot where as the chorus talks about love and stuff. It's really cool though, awesome song!
