In Manchester today we're hurting
evil has visited our great city
children among murdered innocents

As shock permeates our very being
we grieve with the bereaved
united in our condemnation

Mancunian warmth and spirit to the fore
we've been bombed and terrorised before
this pointless atrocity won't break us

In the midst of unimaginable horror
reports of selfless heroic bravery
in this city love will always prevail
My home city the centre of attention for the wrong reasons today
