Banners: Start A Riot Lyrics:
[Verse 1]
I will march down an empty street like a ship into the storm
No surrender, no retreat, I will tear down every wall
Just to keep you warm, Just to bring you home
I will burn this city down for a diamond in the dust
I will keep you safe and sound when there’s no one left to trust
Will you take my hand?
We can make our stand

[Chorus]
If your world falls apart
I’d start a riot, If night falls in your heart
I’d light the fire
In the dark, when you sound the alarm
We’ll find each other’s arms
For your love, all you are
I’d start a riot

[Verse 2]
I will wade through the fire and smoke like sunlight through the haze
I will fight till the flag waves white until my dying days
Through the bombs and blasts
We will take it back

[Chorus]
If your world falls apart
I’d start a riot, If night falls in your heart
I’d light the fire
In the dark, when you sound the alarm
We’ll find each other’s arms
For your love, all you are
I’d start a riot

[Bridge]
I’d start, I’d start a riot, I’d start, I’d start a riot
I’d start, I’d start a riot, I’d start, I’d start a riot

[Outro]
Ooh, Ooh
If your world falls apart
I’d start a riot
