Song Lyrics

Rock, rock, rock ‘n’ roll high school

Right, where we going?
Queens?
Mmm, Yonkers
Brooklyn
Manhattan
Madison Square Garden

Oh-oh-oh…

Oh-oh-oh, Magnificent
Oh-oh-oh, Magnificent

I was born
I was born to be with you 

In this space and time
After that
And ever after I haven’t had a clue
Only to break rhyme
This foolishness
Could leave a heart black and blue


Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Only love
Only love can leave such a scar

But only love
Only love can heal such a mark


I was born
I was born to sing for you 

I didn’t have a choice
But to lift you up
And sing whatever songs you wanted me to
I give you back my voice
From the womb
My first cry it was a joyful noise
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Only love
Only love can leave such a mark
But only love
Only love can heal such a scar


Justify till we die
You and I will magnify
Oh-oh-oh, Magnificent

Magnificent
Oh…

(So we slip, sometimes slide)
(Edge go by)

La-da-da-da
La-da-da-da-da-da-da-da

Only love
Only love can heal such a scar

But only love
Only love unites our hearts



Justify till we die
You and I will magnify
Oh-oh-oh, Magnificent

Magnificent

Magnificent
Magnificent

This is a very special venue for so many reasons for this band
And for a lot of you in the city, too. So, we had to make something very
Special happen tonight, and ah… this is the song we wished we’d written
It’s a Bruce Springsteen song so we’d like to ask him to come out here
It’s also a Patti Smith song, we’d like to ask her to come out here
