May every song that we sing
Be loud and from the heart
May every lie we've been told
Be spat back torn apart
May this feeling last forever
May this fire always burn
'Cause sure we've had our doubts
And sometimes woken insecure
But still we carry a new world in our hearts

So bring the rain and ruins
For I have not the slightest doubt
That we can accommodate ourselves through the worst
For it was we who built these cities
Built these palaces once before
We'll build others when we inherit this earth

And we carry a new world in our hearts
Yeah we carry a new world in our hearts
So we'll laugh tonight and dry our eyes while this racket falls apart
But still we carry a new world in our hearts

May the back roads we blindly wander down
Somehow end back on track
May every last bit of our lives that they've claimed
Tonight be stolen back
May these shows go on forever
May these highways never stop
This will never be replaced, exploited, co-opted or bought
And still we carry a new world in our hearts

So bring the rain and ruins
For I have not the slightest doubt
That we can accommodate ourselves through the worst
For it was we who built these cities
Built these palaces once before
We have nothing to lose and our whole lives left to gain

And we carry a new world in our hearts
Yeah we carry a new world in our hearts
So we'll laugh tonight and dry our eyes while this racket falls apart
But still we carry a new world in our hearts
