Lyrics:

Albanian

Barefoot walking in the sand of melting hope
And as I look around my heart sinks in sorrow
Don’t turn my rain in red
Don’t bite me with your hate
Let peace, serenity guide my tomorrow

Believe, believe love will win eventually
Believe,believe sun will rise up differently
Let love, let love, let love make the change for you and me
Make the change for you and me

Jo nuk shoh me si dikur zogj ne qiell
Edhe qielli sot me duket me gri
Pse lumi kuqelon,pse lufta nuk mbaron
Femije qe kane ne sy uri
Besoj,besoj dielli ndryshe do agoj
Besoj,besoj dashurine do ta zgjoj
Besoj,besoj,besoj, dielli ndryshe do agoj
Dielli ndryshe do agoj …

English

Barefoot walking in the sand of melting hope
And as I look around my heart sinks in sorrow
Don’t turn my rain in red
Don’t bite me with your hate
Let peace serenity guide my tomorrow

Believe, believe love will win eventually
Believe, believe sun will rise up differently
Let love , let love, let love , make the change for you and me
Make the change for you and me
No more birds upon the sky,the sky is empty
Suddenly my blue sky turned in grey
Why rivers are in red
Why wars don’t seem to end
Children with hungry eyes in their motherland

Believe,believe love will win eventually
Believe, believe sun will rise up differently
Believe, believe, believe sun will rise up differently
