lyrics

Falling down a hill I hit my head
The people shouted, oh no Jack is dead
But I woke up and found myself instead
In a brand new world

I met a king who sent out all his men
To see a man who'd fallen off his wall and then
They put him back together and up again
And he was made brand new

Then a chorus rang throughout the land
Tower bells and trumpets sounded and
We were singing Mary had a Lamb
And he was white as snow

And we feeling new
We were feeling new
We were feeling new
As if everything sad came untrue

So I set off to seek the famous lamb
A little boy named Jack said take me man
Cuz I believed and five seeds in my hand
Became the vine that saved my soul

So row row row your boats over the
River and then through the woods we go
I looked around and I saw thousands more
And we were singing louder than before
Yeah we were getting close

Then we set our eyes open that hill
City walls of rock and gold were built
Then at once my heart was calmed and stilled
When I saw the Lamb       

And we feeling new
We were feeling new
We were feeling new
As if everything sad came untrue

So I said hello, I know 
I don't deserve this place
Could you find me some work
To earn my stay here, let me stay

He cried no I saved my robe and my ring for you
Yes I'll throw you a feast
As soon as the cow gets back from the moon
We will dance and sing hallelujah
Hallelujah you are home

I fell and found the deepest love I know
Come sing my song
I'll teach you how it goes
Mary had a Lamb and he was white as snow
White as snow, white as snow, white as snow

And we feeling new
We were feeling new
We were feeling new
As if everything sad came untrue
