30 Day Song Challenge: Day 11 – A Song From Your Favourite Band

I anticipated that there would be a good few Backstreet Boys songs in this challenge already, not overly so but I have spent a good 15 years+ of my life following them and being around their music – so it’s only natural that I would attach a lot to their songs. So thought I’d change this up a bit and instead choose Angels and Airwaves, this song I love. I love the lyrics, so I’ll post the lyrics underneath the video and I’m sure you’ll see why, heck the song should be enough. So this is Angels and Airwaves – Secret Crowds.

Lyrics:

(If I had my own world)
(I’d build you an empire)

If I had my own world
I’d fill it with wealth and desire
A glorious past to admire
And voices of kids out walking dogs
Birds, planes, trees, cleanest cars

If I had my own world
I’d love it for all that’s inside it
There’d be no more wars, death or riots
There’d be no more police, packed parking lots
Guns, bombs sounding off

If I had my own world
I’d build you an empire
From here to the far lands
To spread love like violence

If I had my own world
I’d build you an empire
From here to the far lands
To spread love like violence

Let me feel you, carry you higher
Watch your words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

If I had my own world
I’d show you the life that’s inside it
The way that it glows when you find it
The way it survives with it’s families
Friends or it’s enemies
Let’s make this a new world
I swear you can go if you want to
I know that you have that within you
Inventing the first clean and usable
God’s greatest miracle

If I had my own world
I’d build you an empire
From here to the far lands
To spread love like violence

If I had my own world
I’d build you an empire
From here to the far lands
To spread love like violence

Let me feel you, carry you higher
Watch our words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

Let me feel you, carry you higher
Watch our words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

Let me feel you, carry you higher
Watch our words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

Let me feel you, carry you higher
Watch our words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

What’s your favourite band?
