Earth for all creatures
A thought for all (wo)men
Right for the speechless
Wrong until then?
Eyes for the laughter
Thirst for the tongue
Hands for together
Ears for the song
The song of love
We sing in silence
Every moment long
Once
Here to be done to as we do
With only one chance
Here for the wonder of under the stars
For the one and only
Once
Joy for the children
Hope for the chance
Men for the women
Now for the dance
The dance of love
We dance just once
In unique circumstance
Once
Here to be done to as we do
With only one chance
Here for the wonder of under the stars
For the one and only once
