Translation

How I wish to live as a human being
Who carries his heart in his hands,
All those feeling cold
Would find warmth in the palms of his hands
How I wish to live as a human being
Who carries his heart in his hands,
All those feeling cold
Would find warmth in the palms of his hands
When he laughs, everyone laughs with him
When he is happy, he makes those around him happy

A human, inside you and me
A human, with a dream and an aim
A human, inside you and me
A human, with a dream and an aim

He gives away whatever he has
He does not even own his own soul
He gives away whatever he has
He does not even own his own soul
Inside his heart and deep within his eyes
He carries hope, sunshine and life

A human, inside you and me
A human, with a dream and an aim
A human, inside you and me
A human, with a dream and an aim

A human who loves and never hates
(A human who loves and never hates)
A human carrying hope for a better tomorrow
(A human carrying hope for a better tomorrow)
He’ll be there during hardships and reassures others
(He’ll be there during hardships and reassures others)
He will never betray anyone or accuse others of treason

A human, inside you and me
A human, with a dream and an aim
A human, inside you and me
A human, with a dream and an aim
A human, inside you and me
A human, with a dream and an aim
A human, inside you and me
A human, with a dream and an aim
