FLAGS UP

About the song

‘Flags Up’ was written to inspire athletes, sportsmen, and spectators to unite under a great universal banner as we aspire to be “more than man”. The games represent a chance to come together in sportsmanship and friendship, to test the resilience of our dreams through the obstacles faced and sacrifices made.

I've run this course I've put up a fight

I've made my record show

I swear I've hurt, and burnt out and cried

But I know I'm not alone

Come my brothers to my left and my right

Come my sisters keep shining your light

Like a thousand voices, all through the night

Let’s go (3x) and get your flags up

 

CHORUS

Woah, we are we are, we are ONE

we are we are

And get your flags up

 

We light the sky, our feet off the ground

Tonight we're more than man

Here we are as one, our dreams are aligned

To our anthem, flag in hand

 

Come our time is now let our colours collide

Come on, run this race with pride

With a thousand hearts but we're beating as one

Let’s go (3x) and get your flags up

CHORUS

Woah, we are we are, we are ONE

we are we are

And get your flags up

 

BRIDGE

I take this broken life

I take this partial fight

I blind them city lights

And get my flags up
