Lyrics

(Source: Universal Mother)

All babies are born saying God's name,
All born singing God's name.
All babies are flown from the universe.
From there they're lifted by the hands of angels.
God gives them the stars to use as ladders.
She hears their calls,
She is mother and father.
All babies are born out of great pain,
Over and over,
All born in to great pain.
All babies are crying,
For no-one remembers God's name.
Oh, oh.
All babies are born saying God's name,
All born singing God's name.
All babies are flown from the universe.
From there they're lifted by the hands of angels.
God gives them the stars to use as ladders.
She hears their calls,
She is mother and father.
All babies are born out of great pain,
Over and over,
All born in to great pain.
All babies are crying,
For no-one remembers God's name.
Oh, oh.
There's only love, there's only love,
There's only love in this world.
There's only love, there's only love,
There's only love in this world.
Oh, oh.

Notes
