Lahey, Alex - Welcome To The Black Parade (Triple J Like A Version) Lyrics




When I was a young boy
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band
He said, "Son when you grow up
Would you be the savior of the broken
The beaten and the damned?"
He said "Will you defeat them
Your demons, and all the non-believers
The plans that they have made?"
"Because one day I'll leave you
A phantom to lead you in the summer
To join the black parade"

When I was a young boy
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band
He said, "Son when you grow up
Would you be the savior of the broken
The beaten and the damned?"

Sometimes I get the feeling she's watching over me
And other times I feel like I should go
And through it all, the rise and fall, the bodies in the streets
And when you're gone we want you all to know

We'll carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And in my heart I can't contain it
The anthem won't explain it

A world that sends you reeling from decimated dreams
Your misery and hate will kill us all
So paint it black and take it back
Let's shout it loud and clear
Defiant to the end we hear the call

To carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated
Your weary widow marches

On and on we carry through the fears
Shoo-bop, shoo-bop
Disappointed faces of your peers
Shoo-bop, shoo-bop
Take a look at me cause I could not care at all

Do or die, you'll never make me
Because the world will never take my heart
Go and try, you'll never break me
We want it all, we wanna play this part
I won't explain or say I'm sorry
I'm unashamed, I'm gonna show my scars
Give a cheer for all the broken
Listen here, because it's who we are
I'm just a man, I'm not a hero
Just a boy, who had to sing this song
I'm just a man, I'm not a hero
I
Don't
Care!

We'll carry on
We'll carry on
And though you're dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
You'll carry on
And though you're broken and defeated
Your weary widow marches on

Do or die, you'll never make me
Because the world will never take my heart
Go and try (you'll never break me)
We'll carry on!

Do or die, you'll never make me
Because the world will never take my heart
Go and try (you'll never break me)
We'll carry on!

Lahey, Alex Welcome To The Black Parade (Triple J Like A Version) Comments
  1. Andrew V.

    the percussionist looks like she just discovered cymbals and it's the most wholesome thing ever

  2. GU1TARD3MON

    This song is my everything right now, weltering up

  3. James Bugden

    Far better than Gerard

  4. Family guy has been shit for years

    Fam i got daddy issues

    Family guy has been shit for years

    I have no dad...

  5. Rel

    Might sound weird, but thanks for doing a female cover of the song with the original feel, rather than some weird Softcore shat.

  6. brkn arrw muzik

    this is awesome

  7. Ridhwan Piyul

    1.25. Thanks

  8. Youssef Abi Raad

    Playback Speed @ x1.25. Much Better

  9. Chapman Histology

    I wish I could like this more than once. Amazing performance, my favourite Like A Version for 2019.

  10. Jayden O'Halloran

    1:05 oh hey G Flip :)

  11. Lucas Blanchard

    Gosh I hope that’s her own personal mic...

  12. Jessica Dead

    Wow they really nailed it. Love seeing people have so much fun making music

  13. Kelby Gassett

    It took me years to finally appreciate MCR's. If I had heard this version first it may not have been so. Pretty rad ladies, killer performance.

  14. Alex Delarge

    The girl on the percussion was really loving this lol, I love her

  15. Shane Ortega

    lead singer has liver failure

  16. Joshua Villalobos

    By far the best cover I've ever seen

  17. Greg Young

    My highlight from last year #1 in hottest 100.

    Daryl Lonigan

    hottest 100 doesn't happen if it's not on jan 26

    Greg Young

    @Daryl Lonigan don't you mean "political correctness day" or "don't take it out on us, we weren't there day",

  18. Antonio Ritter

    She kinda looks like Isabel from vis a vis

  19. Ivan Reis

    stunning performance, them made me a fan <3

  20. Raúl Riera

    OMG who are these people I'm now in love with?

    Kris de Valle

    Alex Lahey is a singer songwriter on her own, who tours with her own band. She is accompanied on percussion by another singer-songwriter and multi-instumentalist, G-FLip, who is also enjoying a lot of success this year. Clio Renner is another session keyboardist who has worked in a lot of bands. I suspect the rest of the fellas might be part of Lahey's band.

  21. Mckenzie-Graye Evans

    Who’s the keyboardist?

    Mariana P.

    Clio Renner

  22. Jan Karlo Deiparine

    I was curious about the peanut butter.

  23. Bobby Dean

    wow this is nice.

  24. Trickster Child

    Is it just me or the gate for the guitars seem high

  25. Jon Halliday

    These guys can sing boi!

  37. Atticus Jackson

    Out of tune

  38. Brandon Ax

    I legit thought that was Ramona Flowers on the keyboards lol.

  39. Fitri Elias

    This song is fucking wearying for any singer even experienced ones. Kudos to the singer and awesome band man 🙌🏻

  40. cari saya

    Good job guys

  41. tehfuzzyness1

    I knew OF MCR, never caught my attention, kinda knew the song. After hearing this one I love it, and this version is better than the original imo. Come at me.

  42. Nxmoh

    Very pitchy

  43. Mike Long

    Clio Renner's backup vocals are pure gold.

  44. daylightghost2009

    I don't think she's a boy but...

  45. Greg Young

    This is the best track I have listen to this year, NO1, Hottest 100, Thank you Alex & friends (G, - flip, having too much fun), Xxx

  46. Ridwan Adji

    Thanks for the cover make my emo soul rise again, im crying

  47. MEGU CHAN

    The keyboardist have better vocal then lahey

  48. T Sing

    Alex Lahey didn't cover it, the whole band did. Stop giving credit to the singer only.

  49. Brett101792

    When a girl is so painful average but shes still a 9/10 - The Alex Lahey Paradox

  50. Chung Ming Liaw

    girl in glasses so happy that she got the easiest job.

  51. Gustavo Lezcano

    its great... from argentinaaaaaa...

  52. Anicca Main

    G flip makes this great

  53. gamer boy

    Whos here after mcr reunion?

  54. Chris P

    Almost as pretty as Gerard used to be!

  55. Rubenny Cruz

    U' make me cry! Nice cover

  56. Thais Sales

    Perfeitas! 🖤

  57. Conja_rad

    Sounds like a MCR Paramore mashup

  58. Federico Villa

    I'm still looking for the special voice, I can't find anything different here, good marketing.

  59. Joel W

    The smile at the end is just pure ‘yeah, we owned that’.

  60. Julian D

    Sorry but the vocals are not strong enough to carry the song IMO. Only thing thing that saves the vocals is the harmony that adds the needed intensity.

  61. mistreated nothing-else-to-lose

    Too clean... great job though. I prefer 10secondsongs cover .

  62. James Collins

    What a great crack at this song. And they did a terrific job of it. Waiting for their next cover

  63. Fauzi Rahman

    The original doesn't do it but this song makes me think of my late loved ones and tear up.

  64. rinta arina

    aww shit, she looks like frank iero

  65. MrScaramanga16

    It was good and all but didn't wow me, I don't feel the emotional resonance with this cover, as well as it not being different enough to not make me want to just listen to the original

  66. Michael Hudson

    I'll have whatever the lady with the cymbals is having

  67. 박지훈

    Didn't know Greta Thunderberg likes MCR.. Great Job

  68. TheHitman5c

    Honestly, Ive watched many covers of this song. This is by far my favorite. Ive watched it probably 15 times.

  69. h34dbug

    OMG! My heart! 🖤

  70. Ghost Official

    Beautifull voice❤

  71. Hana

    im the girl on the cymbals

  72. Mr. Tea

    I honest to god thought that was Frank Iero in the thumbnail

  73. Dermot Collins

    Good cover but leave out the shoo bop!!👍

  74. Matthew Delbridge

    Is this eligible for Hottest 100?

  75. SemiObsessive

    Fucking hell this version is good

  76. 룰루랄라

    love you from korea

  77. Sasha Woltjen

    Something that is so special about mcr is the emotion and I find that in a lot of covers they don’t carry that across, but you guys did a fantastic job! I love it!

  78. CR0NUS47

    This cover is the best I have ever heard and you can't convince me otherwise

  79. ltr5976

    Greatest Song of All times

  80. Jorge Figueroa

    Well god damn this is good!

  81. Chris Zealotes

    Cool cover. Not a reinterpretation like so many Like a Version.....but cool.

  82. Jacob Turner

    There's some songs that are so beloved that no matter how good the cover there will always be a pushback. I think if you're going to cover one of these, this is the best way to do it, you can see they gave it their all and had fun with it. That's why it's such a great cover.

  83. Jade jade

    Is that flipsy on those symbols 😂

  84. Michael kris

    The best Gerrard way

  85. MajorBS

    I much prefer this cover since the transition between the Epic Rock Opera intro and the Pop Punk Rock Lite part are much less jarring than the original. :D

  86. Salim Kabylbayev

    Is it me or someone is playing off key :(

  87. Mike Heath

    This is killer

  88. Tom Stanford

    I've watched everyday for a month or more now. Just wow!! I would fly to Australia to see her live and perform it.

  89. Diego Jose Bate

    This “VERSION” was great!!!

  90. Mic Silk

    Would listen to MCR cause my kids were/are big fans. This is a fabulous version.

  91. federico franceschelli

    Spettacolare!!!!!!! Bravissimi!!!!!!

  92. Ickabodxx

    This cover really is so good, I've watched it several times.

  93. hannerglossop

    When this first started, scrolling through the comments I was like 'who the fuck is g flip?!' And then the immediate, 'ah, that be g flip with their massive cymbals...'

  94. Kayla Winsor

    Ahhhh the g notes

  95. ATLHooligan

    Why is the tempo so slow?? Nevermind picked up a little, guess it's just the first part but seemed extra slow.

  96. Carbon_based_life_form

    547 haters will never take my heart
