Lyrics

 

 

If you are locked out I will bring the key. 
If you are lonely come and stand by me.

Cos the room keeps getting brighter as you shine a light. 
and the world keeps getting kinder with you by my side.

This is one moment, 
(This is) one people,
(This is) one lifetime, 
(This is) one song. (x2)

If you feel diff'rent we will take your hand. 
If you feel frightened come and join the band.

Cos the room keeps getting brighter as we shine a light, 
and the world keeps getting kinder singing out side by side.

This is one moment, 
(This is) one people,
(This is) one lifetime, 
(This is) one song. (x2)

Every heartbeat drums together and fills up with pride
and we’re growing strong together, singing out side by side.

This is one moment, 
(This is) one people,
(This is) one lifetime, 
(This is) one song.

This is one moment, (Cos the room keeps getting brighter as you shine a light,)
(This is) one people, 
(This is) one lifetime, (and the world keeps getting kinder with you by my side.)
(This is) one song (x 2)

The room keeps getting brighter as you shine a light, 
and the world keeps getting kinder with you by my side.
