Licht und Liebe:
I wish you light and love
And to all, all, yes, all people.
Yes I wish you, light and love. Yes!
Love, love, I wish you, everything comes at the right time.
Trust the future. Love, o, your love is as red as the flowers in the field.
Love, o, love, as red as the flowers in the field.
Heavens, full of stars, we are all stars.
Millions of stars.
The stars sparkle like lights over the world.
Music is the love, like the stars in the sky, reliable, star clear night, splendour.
The child laughs and does what it wants.
Music is the love.
Music is the love.
Light and love, to all people, love, love, I wish you love, light and love.
Light and love.
I wish you light.
