There's something inside of us that never shows through
unless something happens, something really bad.
It's a strength and a power and a love we never knew,
never ever realised we had.

Cos in the daylight there's only room
for one star to be shining
It drowns all of the others in it's light.
But there's a hundred million others
hiding in it's glory
you never know they're there until it's night.

When things are goin well noone notes the common hero,
the ones who live there lives normally.
They are there all around us, doin normal jobs just like us
but we never really take the time to see.

Cos in the daylight there's only room
for one star to be shining
It drowns all of the others in it's light.
But there's a hundred million others
hiding in it's glory
you never know they're there until it's night.

But when trouble hits and all the world is plunged into a darkness
and the bright sun can't help us in our plight
then a hundred million normal folks turn up and start to help us
and we see the stars that only shine at night.

Cos in the daylight there's only room
for one star to be shining
It drowns all of the others in it's light.
But there's a hundred million others
hiding in it's glory
you never know they're there until it's night.

They're the ones we go to work with
and those we pass in the street
they're the people on the buses
and in the places where we eat.
They're the strangers in the nightclub,
those we spare a passing glance.
They never really get to shine
they never get the chance.

Tragedies are terrible, they shouldn't have to happen
but there's always silver linings when they do
cos in the daylight only one star can be seen up in the skies
but in darkness millions more shine through

During daylight only one star can be seen
but in darkness
millions shine through.
