BRIAN HURREN/A HUNDRED THOUSAND WELCOMES LYRICS

Satellites

 

All the stars in the sky

Shine their light on our beautiful lives

As we’re sleeping at night

All the screams for our eyes are so loud

 

And the TV screens and the magazines show another world

Where the things we see and the things we read don’t belong to us

And we turn on the satellites

And we search for a sign of life

When down here we’re running out

 

It’s so hard to believe all the things we’ve achieved in our world

As the humble lay starving, trading their lives for our gold

And the TV screens hide the silent screams in a broken world

Where the things we see and the things we read don’t belong to us

 

And we turn on the satellites

And we search for a sign of life

When down here we’re running out

 

And we climbed all the greatest heights

Shine a light on the darkest night

Should we turn on the satellites

For the price of a million lives

When down here we’re running out

 

Shine a light, shine a light on the darkest night

Light up everything, everything

Shine a light, shine a light on the darkest night

Light up everything, everything

 

And we climbed all the greatest heights

Shine a light on the darkest night

Should we turn on the satellites

For the price of a million lives

When down here we’re running out

 

Flower

 

Falling teardrops from a heart of gold

It makes me wonder how the world goes ‘round

Broken pieces crumble from her soul

Looking for a sunrise

Deep inside an endless night she drowns

 

And piece-by-piece she starts to fade to the night

With endless questions circling ‘round in her mind

She picks herself apart and hopes she will find

Herself a path she can shine

Where she knows that everything’s alright

 

Well I know you feel the pressure

You’re down on your knees

The world closes in around you

I know how it feels

But you will rise somehow

And face the world like you never did before

And though the rain falls around you

I know you’ll rise a beautiful flower

 

The sun is hiding from her darkened world

And all the cries for god they can’t be heard

She climbed a mountain and her faith is tired

But I can feel it somehow

That through the clouds an endless sun will shine

 

Well I know you feel the pressure

You’re down on your knees

The world closes in around you

I know how it feels

But you will rise somehow

And face the world like you never did before

And though the rain falls around you

I know you’ll rise a beautiful flower

 

And you’ll fight and you’ll rise

Don’t you let nobody tear you down

Just hold your head up high

And you’ll fight and you’ll rise

Don’t you let nobody tear you down

Just hold your head up high

 

Well I know you feel the pressure

You’re down on your knees

The world closes in around you

I know how it feels

But you will rise somehow

And face the world like you never did before

And though the rain falls around you

I know you’ll rise a beautiful flower

And though the rain falls around you

I know you’ll rise a beautiful flower

And though the rain falls around you

I know you’ll rise a beautiful flower

 

Juniper Green

 

All the love I have inside

Was right there in your arms

And all the truths you thought were lies

Were right there for your eyes

I gave it all away

I gave it all away

 

And all the places that I ran

Were right there in your heart

And all our hopes and dreams and plans

Fell right down in your road

 

I’d do it all again

I’d do it all again

I’d do it all again

I’d do it all again

 

I gave it all away

I gave it all away

I gave it all away

I gave it all

 

I’d do it all again

I’d do it all again

I’d do it all again

I’d do it all again

 

Maze

 

Confused among these mazes

Absorbed by empty faces

Here you’ll find me

 

And all the signs have faded

And all the rest have made it

Am I down here on my own

 

Cause while I believed I found it

They planted a seed behind it

Now I’m lost again

 

And all the time you saw us falling

Now you’ve gone and left us

Here in this maze again

 

And all the time you heard us calling

Now you’ve gone and left us

Here in this maze again

 

And all this endless searching

For a face worth wearing

Is leaving me cold and lonely

I want to go home to find me

 

And all the time we wasted

Through all the lies and hatred

Hey, all the rules lay shattered

Now our faith is tired

Cause while I believed I found it

They planted a seed behind it

Now I’m lost again

 

And all the time you saw us falling

Now you’ve gone and left us

Here in this maze again

 

And all the time you saw us falling

Now you’ve gone and left us

Here in this maze again

 

And all the time you heard us calling

Now you’ve gone and left us

Here in this maze again

 

I hear you calling me

I see you run away

I hear you calling me

I see you run away

 

Cause while I believed I found it

They planted a seed behind it

Now I’m lost again

 

And all the time you saw us falling

Now you’ve gone and left us

Here in this maze again

 

And all the time you saw us falling

Now you’ve gone and left us

Here in this maze again

 

And all the time you heard us calling

Now you’ve gone and left us

Here in this maze

 

Collide

 

It’s just a light burning bright

For a moment in your life

It’s just the thunder in the night

As we finally collide

There were moments in our lives

We truly were alive

And I will miss you all my life

My light, my love

My love, my love

 

There are reasons all around

Scattered on the ground

Do they reach beyond our lives

The reasons we collide

And as we touch the world outside

We turn to say goodbye

And I will miss you all my life

My light, my love

My love, my love

My love

 

My love, my love

My love, my love

My love, my love

Cross The Line

 

All I need is the air that I breathe

And I’ll be there

And if you’re ever calling on me

I will hear you

I will hear you babe

 

Not a moment hesitation

Not a place I want to hide

Not a doubt passes by me

Not a mountain we can’t climb

Not a care for what’s behind us

Not a fear for what’s ahead

Only faith and love surround us

On the road we’re going to take

 

I want to be where you are

I want to be this world around you

Want to cross the line beside you

 

Want to feel where you are

I want to feel this world around you

Want to cross the line beside you

Want to be

 

If I know you are holding my hand

I will lead the way

Down this road we will follow the stars

Till we get there

Till we get there babe

And if I find myself losing the way

You will find me

You will guide me there

And if you fall I will carry you there

I won’t leave you here

I won’t leave you there

 

Not a moment hesitation

Not a place I want to hide

Not a doubt passes by me

Not a mountain we can’t climb

Not a care for what’s behind us

Not a fear for what’s ahead

Only faith and love surround us

On the road we’re going to take

 

I want to be where you are

I want to be this world around you

Want to cross the line beside you

 

Want to feel where you are

I want to feel this world around you

Want to cross the line beside you

Want to be

 

I want to be where you are

I want to be this world around you

Want to cross the line beside you

 

Want to feel where you are

I want to feel this world around you

 

I want to be where you are

I want to feel this world around you

Want to cross the line beside you

 

Want to feel where you are

I want to feel this world around you

Hey, hey

 

I want to love you

I want to love

I want to love you

Hey, hey

I want to love you

I want to love

I want to love you

Hey, hey

 

All I need is the air that I breathe

And I’ll be there

And I’ll be there

 

Amazing

 

I have watched us grow this way

From a simple coffee cup day

This is more than I could have wished for

 

This is life, you are my day

A simple word and I float away

You’re a gift, my babe

Can I just say

 

You’re amazing

You amaze me

You’re smart, you are

You’re wonderful

This is beautiful

Beautiful

 

You’re amazing

You amaze me

You’re smart, you are

You’re wonderful

This is beautiful

Beautiful

 

Something tells me you are there

When I turn I see you baby

We are on our way to a new place

To a new place

 

I look around I see your face

This is ours, we built it baby

In this awe sometimes I forget to say

I forget to say

 

You’re amazing

You amaze me

You’re smart, you are

You’re wonderful

This is beautiful

Beautiful

 

You’re amazing

You amaze me

You’re smart, you are

Passing By

 

I walk on a street with a thousand stories to tell

Connected to a million places

The most amazing things are in front of me

It’s written across all those faces

 

And all these dreams and ambitions

They walk on by

Sad stories and memories

They’re passing by

They’re passing by

They’re passing by

(We turn the corner and another page begins)

They’re passing by

(I know I’ll never see her face again)

 

Passing through a crowd of feelings

I pass a woman with sadness in her eyes

Her world is locked and her heart holds the keys

So I guess I’ll never know why

 

And all these dreams and ambitions

They walk on by

Sad stories and memories

They’re passing by

They’re passing by

They’re passing by

(We turn the corner and another page begins)

They’re passing by

(I know I’ll never see her face again)

 

Some wear their tears on the inside

And hide it with a smile

Some run away from danger

Some look it in the eye

 

They’re passing by

They’re passing by

They’re passing by

(We turn the corner and another page begins)

They’re passing by

(I know I’ll never see her face again)

 

We Were The Kings

 

I remember writing our names on the ground

Bound forever, laid in stone

We were the kings

In the winter times

We were there playing in rain

And we stayed out late

Tearing up our clothes once again

 

I remember, I remember

 

I remember running round playing our games

Grazing our knees, chasing you and calling you names

In the summer times

We were there chasing our dreams

We were lost in our years

Laughing till we couldn’t even breathe

 

And the words have faded away

I remember

And the words have faded away

I remember

We were the kings

We were the kings

 

I remember fighting about the smallest of things

Words forgiven in minutes, it didn’t mean a thing

In the hardest times

We were there making mistakes

When we both took the blame and cried so hard

But didn’t say a thing

 

I remember, I remember

 

I remember talking like life heard what we said

Growing older, meeting girls, frightened of change

In confusing times

We were there changing to men

So we ran away

Searching for fortune and fame

 

And the words have faded away

I remember

And the words have faded away

I remember

We were the kings

We were the kings

We were the kings

We were the kings

 

And the words have faded away

I remember

And the words have faded away

I remember

We were the kings

We were the kings

We were the kings

We were the kings
