# More Than One - Lyrics

**More Than One**

*Written by Gavin Holligan 2014*

V1 How many lives did our lowly freedom cost?

And how many crying mothers sons were sorely lost? How many tears fell to the ground? How many years were some held bound?

How many men had to walk a lane of shame? How many of them had to play the losing game? How many songs did they recite? And how many wrongs did they make right?

CHORUS

Oh I say more than one They were more than one Though we know not some They were many more than one They were many more than one

V2 How many boys lying in an early grave? And how many days did they lose, our lives to save? How many soldiers kept the faith? Stood on the front line strong and brave? Oh........ How many wars did they fight for our today? How many scars did they suffer on the way? How many battles had to be won? How many heroes go unsung?

CHORUS

V3 How many endured all the torture and the pain? So we could enjoy our liberties again.. Today is the day we should recognize The great sacrifice and compromise

How many Kings should we pay our tributes to And how many Queens should we raise our glasses to How many people should we be thankful for? And how many heroes should we cease to ignore?

CHORUS

Oh I say more than one They were more than one Though we know not some They were many more than one They were many more than one They were many more than one They were many more than one
