Lyrics



An old mighty thunderstorm

Hooligans in uniform

Demonstrating up the drive

Desecrating the national flag



Hate masquerading as pride

Say you got God on your side

But you ain't why Jesus died



I never dreamed that it would come to this

But an enemy is only what you fight them with



Fight them with love!

Fight them with love!



'Cause when the power of love

Overcomes the love of power

Then the world will be ours

Then the world will be ours



In the eye of a hurricane

Getting high on the fumes of your fate

Veins running on puritan blood

Act like you're jury and judge



Denigrating the human race

Preaching intolerant hatred

Say you got God on your side

But you're just why Jesus cried



Jesus cried

Why Jesus cried

Why Jesus cried



Jesus cried



I never dreamed that it would come to this

But an enemy is only what you fight them with, fight them with

I never dreamed that it would come to this

But an enemy is only what you fight them with

Fight them with love...



Overcomes the love of power

Then the world will be ours

They're no saints, they are liars

They go low, we go higher

They go low, we go higher

They go low...



Fight them with love!

Fight them with love!

Yeah!



'Cause when the power of love

Overcomes the love of power

Then the world will be ours

Then the world will be ours

Will be ours

Will be ours

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
