I wished so hard upon a star
for months I wished and wished and wished
I lay awake the night's long line
for fear that it would come to nicht.
my soul strech'd out twixt ev'ry star
I saw for nights around around
and wished my soul on ev'ry one
and cried out loud, but without sound.
The stars must hear! the planets, too!
align themselves from me for you
where is justice, where is right?
I cried out into that dark night
Came the message with the sun
War is over, battle won.
Now my work here is done.
