Jedward get serious with “Leave a Mark”

Jedward barely had time to rinse the Sharknado-infested water out of their quiffs before releasing a new single – and this time it’s personal. New song “Leave a Mark” is a heartfelt electro anthem about making the best out of life.

“Leave a Mark”, written by Jedward themselves, has a positive message about doing the best you can do in life, about being able to look back and be happy with what you’ve achieved. They’ve described “Leave a Mark” as ‘not just a song but a statement”. The single seems to be the personal anthem of John and Edward, who have always been fiercely independent and forged their own career paths – and they’ve left more than a few marks along the way.

The video sees the Grimes brothers at a beach and sometimes with a horse. They’re giving their very best serious video face, and even jump in the ocean for a dramatic wet look. These scenes are cut with footage of icons of the 20th century – people like JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali, Amelia Earhart and Nelson Mandela. All people who have, in different ways, left a mark.

Jedward – “Leave a Mark” lyrics

We all want to be seen and heard
We all want to leave a mark on this world
Let the thunder and echoes come and go
Embark on a journey, let the magic unfold

Be your own canvas, paint the vision you see
Use whatever colours to show how you feel
Be known as the person who did all they could
Act like the icons in the storybooks

I salute those who gave it their own
I salute those who shot to the stars
I salute those who gave it their own
I salute those who shot to the stars

We all want to be seen and heard
We all want to leave a mark on this world
Let the thunder and echoes come and go
Embark on a journey, let the magic unfold

Before your days are numbered, laugh out loud
Do the right thing, stand tall and proud
When all is said and done, you can look back on your life
With teardrops of joy knowing you did all you should

I salute those who gave it their own
I salute those who shot to the stars
I salute those who gave it their own
I salute those who shot to the stars

We all want to be seen and heard
We all want to leave a mark on this world
Let the thunder and echoes come and go
Embark on a journey, let the magic unfold

At birth, our hope it lingers in the air
It’s the dawn of a new age, united we stand
I hear midnight bells ringing out a new day
We’re dream chasers, out of the ashes we soar

We all want to be seen and heard
We all want to leave a mark on this world
Let the thunder and echoes come and go
Embark on a journey, let the magic unfold

We all want to be seen and heard
We all want to leave a mark on this world
Let the thunder and echoes come and go
Embark on a journey, let the magic unfold
