Know what I want
My prayer, our prayer
That we refuse to become a monster in order to defeat a monster
We chose love over fear
Love, love

I want to run, I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls that hold me tonight
I want to reach out and touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear without a trace
I see through the eye of the hurricane
Where the streets have no name, oh

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building, then burning down love
We’re burning down love
And when I go there to go there with you
It's all I know how to do

The cities a flood, our love turns to lust
We're beaten and blown by the wind, trampled in dust
Dhow you a place, it’s high, so high
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We’re still we're building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there, I go there with you
It's all we know how to do

Love love love
There is no end to love
Love love love
There is no end to love

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Still building, then burning down love
Burning down love
And when we go there, we go there with you
It's all we want to do
Go there, a place of soul
A place of imagination
A place where we choose love over fear
