Lyrics

Marietta :
One little child, a spec of light
A candle burns for one sweet soul throughout the night
A woman cries her heart in two
I wish that I could hold you close, be there for you

I am with you tonight, though you don’t know my name
I close my eyes and pray for you
Find the courage and faith to guide you
When the dream is gone

Hans :
This can’t be real, must be a dream
I’ll wake up and the nightmare will go
I’m only one man, but think that I can
Defy the State to help one I know

Marietta :
I wish your smile could light a mother’s distant eyes
While I take care of you you’ll never realise
That someone else is lost and I must live a lie
I’m not the one who should be by your side

Hans :
Now my life’s a lie
But there was nothing I could do but this
And this is far too hard
Who gave the State their rights, then made me God oh

Marietta :
One day he will be yours, until that time is here
I’ll keep your child so near to me
You won’t see all the joy just sorrow
When the dream is gone

Hans :
The worm has turned and now it learns
All too soon
There is no way to win here
She won’t see all the joy, just sorrow
When the dream is gone

Both :
Find the courage and faith to guide you
When the dream is gone

Marietta :
When the dream is gone
