The sword of love is a two-sided sword
A sword without a handle, a sword without a haft
Everyone who touches the sword of love
Will be hurt, will be cut and will be left behind, crying in the darkness of the night

Because the sword of love has no mercy
No mercy with the lies,
No mercy with the selfishness
No mercy with the dreams

Because the sword of love only gives and never takes
The love that gives the truth
The love that gives the sacrifice
The love that gives the freedom

The sword of love cuts with the sharpness of a razor blade
The sword of love cuts down your world
Breaks down your dreams
The sword of love cuts down everything in which you ever believed

Because the world we see
The world we hear
The world we feel
Is not the world there is.

When the sword of love touches our soul
It breaks the chains of lies with power
When the chains are broken, we can hear the screaming pain, the bleeding loneliness
We hear the crying silence of the forgotten ones

We see what we did to the world
We hear how we broke the world
We feel how we hurt the world
The world that's real

When the lies are broken
When the dreams have fallen
When we are crying in a bleeding soul
The sword touches us with love and tenderness

A light takes our soul and shows the beauty of the world
The beauty of the real world
In which we all are one
In which you are me and I am you …
