When I was young, lying in the grass
I felt so safe in a warming bath
Of sunlight
Of sunlight

Fast open sky could do no harm
Like an embrace of a mothers arms
In sunlight [4x]

With every year that came to pass
More clouds appear until the sky went black
And now there's
No sunlight,
No sunlight.
And now there's
No sunlight,
No sunlight anymore.

You dissapeared with the same speed
The idealistic things I believed
The optimist died inside of me
No sunlight [4x]

You dissapeared with the same speed
The idealistic thing I believed
The optimist died inside of me
No sunlight [7x]
No sunlight anymore.
