Lyrics

More in common
(June 2017)

We each have a choice
We can use our voice
I'll help you understand the things I see
I will listen to your view
To understand the path you choose
And who knows? We may not disagree?

"We have far more in common...
Than that which divides us"
We have so much in common
That we must stand united

To live together side by side
We must value every life
Cos' we are all born equal in my eyes
Your religion is your choice
To celebrate and to rejoice
And who am I to judge or criticise

"We have far more in common...
Than that which divides us"
We have so much in common
That we must stand united
Against a world filled with hatred
Spread by those who are short-sighted
We have far more in common
Than the things that divide us

We are all the same inside
We love our folk and speak with pride
Of our young children as we watch them grow
We treat our old with dignity
Respect their past in memories
Shed tears when it's time to let them go

"We have far more in common...
Than that which divides us"
We have so much in common
That we must stand united
Against a world filled with hatred
Spread by those who are short-sighted
We have far more in common
Than the things that divide us

"We have far more in common...
Than that which divides us"
We have so much in common
That we must stand united
Against a world filled with hatred
Full of fear and full of anger
We have far more in common
Than the things that divide us

Joe Cox MP maiden speech in House of Commons May 2015
..."It is a joy to represent such a diverse community...Our communities have been deeply enhanced by immigration, be it of Irish Catholics across the constituency or of Muslims from Gujarat in India or from Pakistan, principally from Kashmir. While we celebrate our diversity, what surprises me time and time again... is that we are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us."...
