"Lanterns" as written by and Ian Lewis Kenny Ian Patrick Berney....
Lately I've found
When I start to think aloud
There's a longing in the sound
There is more I could be
In darkness I leave
For a place I've never seen
It's been calling out to me
That is where I should be

We never carried days on our own
But now it's up to us to know
The weight of being so much more
We will find ourselves on the road

On we march
With a midnight song
We will light our way
With our lanterns on
On we march
Till we meet the dawn
We will light our way
With our lanterns on

As we walk out
Without question without doubt
In the light that we have found
It is finally clear
Our day has come
And we'll stand for who we are
We are ready we are young
We have nothing to fear

We never carried days on our own
But now it's up to us to know
The weight of being so much more
We will find ourselves on the road

On we march
With a midnight song
We will light our way
With our lanterns on
On we march
Till we meet the dawn
We will light our way
With our lanterns on

We held the light
To our faces
And realised
We were chasing
Shadows behind
Not worth saving
So burn it bright
Forever illuminating

On we march
With a midnight song
We will light our way
With our lanterns on
On we march
Till we meet the dawn
We will light our way
With our lanterns on

On we march
With a midnight song
We will light our way
With our lanterns on
On we march
Till we meet the dawn
We will light our way
With our lanterns on

Our day has come
And we'll stand for who we are
We are ready we are young
We have nothing to fear

    General CommentSooner or later the pain of remaining tight in a bud will become less than the pain it takes to Blossom!..
    Never short-sell yourself! We all tend to, when we are young, chase shadows behind us, or another way of saying it is that we try to live in the past where it was familiar, fun and we probably thought we couldn't or shouldn't expect anything more! We stop chasing our dreams. We live in the dark until that moment, likely illuminated by an unexpected love thrown our way, when we can see without question that we owe ourselves a better existence, owe ourselves more love and the scary unknown is suddenly not scary anymore
