Your light will never fade, not as long as I'm alive
Your candle flickers in mind when I close my eyes at night
I love you, I love you,
I love you, I love you, I love you

I know that Dietrich never told you, but there's love all around
Your power and your healing lies waiting to be found
Nothing can stop you
Nothing in the world can stop you

They probably told you that you're stupid
But they will never really know
Just how luminous and brilliant you will be when you grow
You'll know what love and joy is truly
And you will prove all of them wrong
They'll see that you have won every battle you set your mind to all along, all along

I hope all the people in Dietrich
Baptize themselves in shame
I hope they make damn sure that they
Never forget your name
I hope for justice,
Some sort of justice for you

I hope that love will follow
Wherever you may go
I hope that every force
Beyond my grasp will let you know
That you are holy,
That your are blessed, you are everything,

Everything that they could never give you
You are grace and compassion,
You are life, you are light,
It's all right there within you,
It's all right there within you...
