lyrics

We will always remember that day
And never forget those who were slain
We will never give in to fear or terror
Always stand tall, start again

And the sun will shine tomorrow
And the rain will wash away the tears
Lightning doesn't strike in the same place
And so we hope for countless more years

Chorus

Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
a City united

Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
We'll never be divided

Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
a City united

Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
We'll always be, reminded

So shake your fellow Manc by the hand
And understand all reasons why
This city that all our hearts live in
Be proud and keep your spirit high

Chorus


Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
a City united

Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
We'll never be divided

Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
a City united

Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
We'll always be, reminded

We pray to keep our children safe
We pray to keep our hopes alive
As we all move onto a new day
And with 22 new stars in night skies

Chorus


Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
a City united

Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
We'll never be divided

Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
a City united

Oh Manchester
Oh Manchester
We'll always be, reminded
