Chris De Burgh - Read My Name

For every child that has been born
There is a chance to shine,
And everyone can have a dream
Until the end of time,
So live for every moment
As the world keeps turning round,
And lift your hands up to the sky
And say it loud and proud,
"I have been here,
Read my name,
Read my name! "

For every child that has been born
There is a chance in life,
To try it all and be someone
With what we have inside,
So don't give up and don't give in,
Just give it all instead,
And raise your voice above the crowd
And let them know You've said
"I have been here,
Read my name,
Read my name;

With all I've got I've taken part,
I've made a difference to the world,
I have been here
Just read my name!"

Endlessly amazing and inventive that we are,
We dive the deepest oceans and
We reach out for the stars,
And one day there will be a man
Across the universe,
Who'll say "I come from Planet Earth"
and these will be his words;
"I have been here,
Read my name,
Read my name;

With all I've got I've taken part,
I've made a difference to the world,
I have been here,
Just read my name !"

And when the darkness has to fall
And comes the end of days,
Then lift your hands up to the sky
And say it once again.....
"I have been here and I have taken part,
I've made a difference to the world
I have been here,
Just read my name!"

"I have been here...
Just read my name.
I've taken part.....
Reach for the stars,
Across the universe...
We come from Planet Earth."
