Lyrics used in the commercial
Well I woke up to the sound of silence and cars
Cutting like knives in a fist fight
And I found you with a tear in your eye
Your head in the curtains
And heart like the Fourth of July
You swore and said, "We are not, We are not shining stars."
You say, "No, I never said we are."
If you're lost and alone
Or you're sinking like a stone
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground
Carry on, carry on
'Cause we are
We are shining stars
Carry on, carry on
We are invincible
We are who we are
The signs are what you would find below the golden arches outside a McDonald's restaurant.
Brief messages can be some of the most poignant. And a McDonald's marquee, the kind with interchangeable letters, is supposed to convey short messages such as "Billions and Billions served" or maybe the price of a Big Mac special. But when tragedy strikes or conversely, a happy event occurs, a McDonald's sign can be an emotional expression to the local community.
