Someone Singing Along

Someone Singing Along lyrics
Somebody’s gonna wave a flag.
Somebody’s going to attack.
Someone’ll tell you to take a side,
Tell you their version of wrong or right.

Somebody’s gonna let you in,
Judged on the colour of your skin.
Slam the door in the face of your friend,
Simply because you don’t look like him.

And then you gotta find the way that you’re walking.
Everybody’s walking.
You gotta find the words to say when you’re talking.
Everybody’s talking.

So I built the words into a song.
I’m hoping someone’s singing along.
And even if some notes are wrong,
I’m hoping someone’s singing along.
‘Cause just one voice is not enough.
I need to hear from everyone.
And even when I’m dead and gone,
I’m hoping someone’s singing along.

Somebody’s gonna build a wall,
Then smash it with a cannonball.
Someone who somehow has got a gun,
Will tell you who you can and you can’t love.
Some people keeping all the cash.
They gonna get away with that.
Just cause some people don’t think like me,
Does that really make them the enemy?

And then you gotta find the way that you’re walking.
Everybody’s walking.
You gotta find the words to say when you’re talking,
Everybody’s talking.

So I built the words into a song.
I’m hoping someone’s singing along.
And even if some notes are wrong,
I’m hoping someone’s singing along.
‘Cause just one voice is not enough,
I need to hear from everyone.
And even when I’m dead and gone,
I’m hoping someone’s singing along.

Make a noise.
I can hear you now.
Won’t you raise your voice,
Just a little louder!
Make a noise.
I can hear you now.
Won’t you raise your voice,
Just a little louder!

So I built the words into a song.
I’m hoping someone’s singing along.
And even if some notes are wrong,
I’m hoping someone’s singing along.
‘Cause just one voice is not enough.
I need to hear from everyone.
And even when I’m dead and gone,
I’m hoping someone’s singing along.
