England

(Russell, Owens, Lyons)

My father worked every hour
My timing was good
Fought enemies we believed in
For honour we stood

With sentiment, I grow older
I’m watching things change
These settlement walls are burning
Fear bellows the flames 

For another second we remain
Halt the fire with steady, ashen rain
Raise us up and bring us home again
The dawn is falling, the dawn is falling
Take me home

Take me home
Take me home (I hear England)
Take me home (I hear England)
Take me home 

It’s hidden in every heartbeat
It’s written on every wall
We’re sending a silent army
To fight for us all

Nail a call to battle on our door
Name the ground and what we’re fighting for
Take the strain and wait for us to fall

We won’t come crawling
We won’t come crawling
Take me home

Take me home
Take me home (I hear England)
Take me home (I hear England)
Take me home  

Do you believe in me now?�
