I said remember this moment In the back of my mind
The time we stood with our shaking hands
The crowds in stands went wild
We were the kings and the queens And they read off our names The night you danced like you knew our lives Would never be the same
You held your head like a hero
On a history book page
It was the end of a decade But the start of an age

Long live the walls we crashed through
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
And bring on all the pretenders One day we will be remembered 
I said remember this feeling I passed the pictures around
Of all the years that we stood there on the sidelines Wishing for right now
We are the kings and the queens You traded your baseball cap for a crown When they gave us our trophies And we held them up for our town
And the cynics were outraged Screaming, "this is absurd"
'Cause for a moment a band of thieves in ripped up jeans got to rule the world 
Long live the walls we crashed through
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
And bring on all the pretenders I'm not afraid 
Long live all the mountains we moved I had the time of my life Fighting dragons with you
I was screaming, "long live the look on your face"
And bring on all the pretenders One day we will be remembered 
Hold on to spinning around Confetti falls to the ground May these memories break our fall

Can you take a moment Promise me this:
That you'll stand by me forever But if God forbid fate should step in
And force us into a goodbye If you have children someday
When they point to the pictures Please tell them my name
Tell them how the crowds went wild
Tell them how I hope they shine 
Long live the walls we crashed through
I had the time of my life with you

Long, long live the walls we crashed through
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
And I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
And bring on all the pretenders I'm not afraid  Singing long live all the mountains we moved I had the time of my life Fighting dragons with you
And long, long live the look on your face
And bring on all the pretenders One day, we will be remembered
