lyrics

One destiny in store for us
Our day will surely come
No nation more victorious
Our islands in the Sun

Some hope, some glory
Some future before me
Some day before the glory fades away
The glory fades away

Yellow skies in strange formation
Warm wind and blinding rain
High seas and strange contagion
Our nation great again

Some hope, some glory
Some chance, some story
Some hope before the glory fades away
The glory fades away
We fade, fade away
The glory fades away

Our boys so brave and glorious
Our fathers' will be done
Our lady pray for all of us
Amen in kingdom come

Some hope, some glory
Some faith, some dawning
Some days of hope...
Before the glory fades away
The glory fades away
We fade, fade away
The glory fades away

Fire on the hillside
Smoke on the waterfront
Wreckage in the harbour
Rats in the basement
