Because behind appearances
Beyond this world in which we live
There we will find beauty
Because behind the distances
Beyond the different lives we lead
There is our destiny

[Chorus]
Night is now falling
So ends this day
The road is now calling
And I must away
Over hill and under tree
Through lands where never light has shone
By silver streams that run down to the sea

with diamonds and pearls at your head and your feet
and may you need never to banish misfortune
may you find kindness in all that you meet…”
